      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Monaco Seattle - A Kimpton Hotel

      A true find


      We got this hotel from Hotwire and paid about 1/3 of the standard room rate. The rooms are small but very clean. And the loaner goldfish was a lot of fun. The location is great with a Starbucks within walking distance- no matter which way you walk! You won't be disappointed.

      A little disappointed


      My family stayed at the Monaco last Thanksgiving and I must say that I was a bit disappointed based on the hotel having a 4 or 5 star rating.

      I was told that my daughters would be able to care for a gold fish during our stay and after having asked several times about when the gold fish would arrive, it never did. Not a big deal, but it did disappoint my kids and I felt that if the hotel couldn't take care of a small problem like that, what about a big problem? I wasn't impressed with the rooms at all. There was just too much bold colors. It looked like something out of a Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The location was great because it was next to a UW Huskies Bookstore and a Starbucks - my only positive comment to say about the Alexis.

      Not 5 star


      We had reservations for a non-smoking room but didn't get it when we arrived. The room smelled bad, carpet was spotted with stains and torn, and tub was dirty. Valet parking is necessary due to no other places to park and it was $27 for one night.

      We stayed in Bed and breakfasts or Inns in Washington that were cleaner and better food.

      Nice 4* in Seattle


      checked in late Saturday night and was given a room on the 8th floor.

      No water view from our room but plenty of city views. Great location coming from Amtrak station near Stadiums. About a $5 cab ride. Room was smaller but very nice with a comfortable queen size bed. Bathroom had nice Aveda Spa products and was very clean. Didn't use the restaurant but enjoyed the free wine party from 5-6pm. Lobby is nice and not too loud so we could have a nice conversation. Service was excellent. Staff was very friendly. One comment. They suggested the car service to the airport several times even though Cab is less expensive. I guess if I was on an expense account that would be fine but I was on vacaction so it was a little annoying. Other than that I'd highly recommended this nice, friendly hotel.

      Hotel Monaco the best


      We visited Seattle the second week in Sept.2003 What an experience at the Hotel Monaco! The staff was just incredible. They were always there no matter what your questions or wants. It was our first, but not last, visit to "The Emerald City". There are many things to do. Boat trips, dining, tours,shopping and of course Pikes Market. It was an experience we will never forget.



      Just spent four nights at Monaco. Great location for a visitor to Seattle. Refreshingly different, over the top but successfully carried off. Large comfortable rooms, well equiped with CD players and thoughtful amenities (but at a price). Very well stocked minibar too!

      Wacky decor but it worked - leopard print towelling robes humourous touch. Luxury bathroom marred by a cheap sliding door - let the side down there.

      Efficient friendly check-in staff and savy concierge. Only thing to spoil picture was the over priced and limited menu in the Sazerac Restaurant on the hotel premises and the miserable surly staff that worked there.

      Great hotel


      A great hotel! Excellent staff and service. Will always stay at the Monaco when in Seattle.

      Tired of cookie cutter hotels. Monaco is a treat!


      I recently stayed at the Monaco while on business. For a weary business traveller tired of the cookie cutter rooms, the Monaco was a treat.

      Very unique rooms. Fish bowl with fish in your room. Free wine tasting each evening. Great food. Wonderful staff. Can't wait to get back to Seattle so I can stay here again.

      Hotel Monaco ~ Yeah Baby!!


      My husband and I recently stayed at the Hotel Monaco in Feb. I loved everything about the hotel. The staff is excellent. The lobby and corridors (yes, corridors) are beautifully decorated. Everything looked polished and clean. The room was a tad small, but well-appointed and extremely confortable. The bathroom is a good size and also tastefully decorated. My husband was really impressed with the FREE high speed internet access. We booked our reservation online and got a very decent rate so I am especially pleased. We have stayed in hotels that were more than twice the rate and they were not nearly as nice. I highly recommend the Hotel Monaco and can't wait to go back!

      Luxurious Hotel in heart of Downtown


      This is one of the most luxurious hotels I have stayed in. It is designed to give the ambience of a boutique hotel and from the mintute you step inside you don't want to leave.

      Everything from pet goldfishes to Aveda toiletries make this a worthwhile visit. The staff were friendly and helpful and the complimentary evening wine tasting makes you forget about those tired feet. The rooms don't have a great view but youl'l be too taken in with the decor to notice.

Since Larry has never actually enjoyed wearing a suit we've avoided the dining room on our last several cruises. And, since this trip is three and a half months we really didn't want to deal with a garment bag in addition to our other luggage. So, we planned to enjoy the buffet and the opportunity to ...

      ... did in the Rose Bowl, beat the PAC-12!   It will be a real challenge! After Chihuly and a stop at our nearby hotel, we ventured off for lunch to Anthony's Pier 66 recommended by Kevin St. Cyr. Guess a high school buddy is general manager and part-owner. His buddy was not touring the store that day. Had a great shared meal of barbecued garlic shrimp as an app and a Hawaiian Cobb Salad with shrimp, mango, avocado, and bacon. On the ...

      ... Muster deck 7 then up to cabins at 1550 then right on 1600 there were 3 really loud blasts on the massive fog horn, and we were away going Astern out from the Pier. We watched from our 12th floor balcony the very large city of Seattle slip into oblivion as we headed for the forward horizon.
      Approx 3000 people headed for the lounge where we were, but there are plenty of eating houses around, so we found a few lost friends and settled into a nice Tea in the Horizon lounge.

      ... disgusting at once! We told them not to touch anything as we walked by, although I did take Cole's picture near it. We went to the aquarium next, which was kind of a waste of money as the boys flew through it, moody and tired. The seals and river otters were all sleeping as well so they were not interesting to see. Outside the aquarium we regrouped on the waterfront trying to get everyone back on track. Deciding we couldn't do everything, but wanting to see more we decided to ...

      My trip concludes with an explosive ending.

A popular hit is 'turn it down for what' by the talented recording artist, lil john. I say, you should probably turn it down if someone has tinnitus.
