      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Monaco Portland - A Kimpton Hotel

      Surprisingly family-friendly

      from

      We stayed here over Thanksgiving and loved it. Very relaxing place for adults, but also suprisingly family-friendly. The rooms are real suites, with heavy, curtained sliding doors to separate the living area from the sleeping area, so that our toddler could nap and go to bed early and the adults could stay up without whispering. The bathroom is good-sized and stocked with Aveda products that come from the adjacent spa - tip: book a spa service well in advance of your stay, as even the great hotel staff cannot get you a massage with only a few days warning. The lobby is beautiful, with lots of big leather seating. It was my daughter's daily destination - they have Candy Land in one of the bureaus. There is also tasty coffee and tea all morning and wine in the evening. Staff was very friendly, very efficient. Guests were very pleasant, too - the lobby puts everyone in a social mood. Great location for walking around Portland. What a find - and what a great price you can get on the web.

      Will definitely stay here again

      from

      My kids and I had a great time at this hotel. I was especially appreciative of the courteous and friendly staff, mostly the bellhops and the valets. The room was very large, they had anticipated our needs beforehand and placed an extra rollaway bed in the room before we arrived. I loved the marble countertops, the large bathroom, the down comforter, and how very quiet the room was. We didn't even know the hallway existed. The ceilings were so high and beautiful.

      Well-appointed rooms, great Aveda bath products, Starbucks coffee in the room. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel! Even the parking garage is nice. Well worth the money I spent on Priceline! The location is also unbeatable, right across the street from Meier & Frank, one block from Pioneer Square. The restaurant is very kid-friendly, as the whole table is covered with linen and butcher paper over it. Excellent food and terrific wait staff. It was a very pleasurable, elegant and stress-less stay for this single mom with two young kids. A lovely way to pamper myself while I'm with my kids on vacation.

      An Oasis Retreat!

      from

      What a delightful oasis! I loved this hotel. It was a bit whimsical and a wonderful hotel for a relaxing and pampered stay. I loved the decorating, the stuffed animal, the salon shampoos and lotions. It would make a wonderful place to go for a 'girl's weekend out'. The service was great and I was treated very well EVEN as a HOTWIRE client.

      I would definitely go back.

      Refreshing Change from the same-old same-old

      from

      The hotel was a refreshing change from the same old same-old of every other hotel. The rooms for uniquely decorated and very comfortable. The living room was also an excellent place to have a cup of coffee and read the paper by the fireplace in the morning. It was located convienent to everywhere either by walking or the MAX rail. It made my business trip into a comfortable and wonderful experience. Would stay again if I return and am looking into visiting others in the Kimpton chain now.

      Hit or miss? Miss!!!

      from

      We were disappointed in the haphazard decorating of the rooms and lobby, and the slow, albeit very friendly, service. We had signed up for a special package that included chilled champagne (served warm), flowers delivery at turndown service (they forgot) and breakfast (stale scones).

      Hotel is OK but not superb

      from

      Hotel advertises free wireless Intrnet access and high speed Internet.

      During my stay the wireless Internet did not work and the hotel employees were not knowledgeable about that. The shupport phone number I was given was not answered. Also there were no Ethernet connection on the room I was staying. My only option was to use the incredibly small "business room" on the 8th floor.

      Incredibly friendly staff!

      from

      We stayed at the 5th Avenue Suites in June and specifically chose this hotel because it is dog friendly. Most dog friendly properties just tolerate dogs but here the staff was incredible! Every time we walked by the front desk our dog received a treat and a friendly smile. Of course, the staff was also good to us and the room was lovely with great Aveda products and quick response to our requests. It is conveniently located to a shopping center with a new movie theatre showing the latest independent films.

      Great boutique hotel in Portland

      from

      My boyfriend and I love to stay at this hotel when we visit Portland, which is about four times a year. It is a wonderfully decorated boutique hotel with a terrifc ambiance. The staff is friendly and personal and always eager to make our stay a pleasant one. It is in a vintage (older) building so the rooms are not standard layout, but they manage to get everything you need in there! All the finishes are first rate: stone floors and marble vanities in the bathrooms; colorful decoration and design. The rooms are all in new condition with modern finishes and accessories. And we love the adjacent Red Star restaurant and bar! The food (esp. breakfast) is delicious. Enjoy the wine tasting in the hotel lounge and the revolving art display. The hotel is within walking distance to great P-town shopping and dining... Enjoy!

      Disappointing

      from

      We did get our reservation from Priceline but the room was so small. There was not really room for our young son. The lobby is beautiful, yes but the rooms were not what we were expecting. Feel free to stay there but be careful about the room selection.

      A Little Bit of Paris in Portland

      from

      Portland in the winter can be drizzling and dreary, but if you find yourself at the 5th Avenue Suites, you can pretend you are in drizzling and dreary Paris, resplendent with all the glamour of charming little hotels in that City of Love. The lobby is cozy with wine tastings in the evenings. Bellmen greet you by name and valet parking attendants ask to check your directions when you are going out for the day. You are pampered beyond belief and every room is well-appointed and decorated with Pierre Frey fabrics and other charming acoutrements. A simply divine and cozy place to return to after a day of business or shopping. The hotel is walking distance to many upscale clothing and furniture establishments. You can pick up your Burberry raincoat a block away at Mercentile!

No wonder Kraig had recommended it - it was definitely his cup of tea. All of this touring around town had us thirsty, so we met up with Ross and headed across the river to Hair of the Dog Brewery.

Instead, we went back to Jones's for the second consecutive night and got talking to a hen party group who were fascinated by our English accents. It seemed that Jones's was something of a magnet for 'bachelor parties' and 21st birthday celebrations. A good few of those partaking were already flagging by ...
