Standard Kimpton eclectic-whimsical décor, friendly staff, extreme pet-friendliness, onsite Aveda spa and Red Star Tavern restaurant/bar, and complimentary evening wine reception woos even the most jaded of travelers.
One of the most pet-friendly hotels ever. There's no additional charge for pets, there are no size, weight, or breed restrictions, no limit on the number of pets allowed, and you don’t have to pay a deposit. They have a pet ambassador, Timmy the yellow lab, who can be found lounging in his over-stuffed dog bed in the lobby or wagging his tail happily as he welcomes your pet during check-in.
Great hotel BUT.. – It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at goo.gl/FPxYD They have some of the best hotel deals on the web!
Great stay in downtown – I have not stayed in downtown Portland before, but was looking for somewhere to stay for my honeymoon. Ended up getting a great deal on one of those discount sites and then when we showed up after our wedding ceremony and reception, all dolled up of course, they upgraded our room to a suite. A very pleasurable stay even if we were only there for one night. They also have bikes to check out but I think they only have two. I liked the fact you could bring your pet. Hung out in the morning in the sitting area with our coffee. Loved the fish in our room. Bedding was great and it was quiet, no street noise. Great animal print robes, fabulous giant bathroom. Service was great and they quickly brought us some forks to eat our wedding leftovers and they had already displayed the bottle of champagne that my new inlaws had gifted us. Overall great stay, no complaints. I would definitely stay there again.
Romance, romance, romance! – My husband and I stayed here for the 2nd time last weekend. We ordered the "romance" package and it was worth it. Sparkling wine, rose petals, late check out, breakfast "in bed," free valet parking. We had the larger King Size Suite which was perfect. Prior, we have stayed in a Grand Suite which is very special - just right for a wedding night!
Unfortunately, this stay, the neighbors next door were very loud (sounded like young women partying - this is 1:30 am). We called the front desk and they really didn't do much except try to reach them by phone - and they wouldn't answer. Oh, well.
But, we were still able to lounge in bed until 1 pm which was a special treat. This is a great hotel and we'll be back.
Excellent Pet Friendly Hotel – We love staying at the Monaco. I think that maybe our dogs enjoy staying here even more than we do. Everything the staff here does makes you feel welcome. I love Kimpton hotels allowing pets, offering the beverage/wine hour, and offering a great hotel experience.
Awesome staff, beautiful rooms, great stay – I was bowled over by the service and the lovely appearance of their lobby and guest rooms. Highly recommended for everyone! They even gave my kid a goldfish in a bowl for the two nights we were at the hotel! (The goldfish's name was Gary - how cute!) Art the Lobby Dog is adorable and clearly loved and well-cared for by the staff. The restaurant Red Club has just been renovated and the food we had for breakfast was great. The location is also very handy for local restaurants and shopping. One front desk clerk gave us amazing lunch and dinner recommendations and seemed to know the city very well indeed! We very much appreciated the personal attention and will definitely be back next time we are in Portland!
Permanently stained my wedding dress – Okay, let me be fair. Their front desk, room service, and valet was exceptional, and we really received out-of-this-world service. Honestly, some of the best service I've ever had at hotel. The one-star rating is because housekeeping lost my wedding dress for a period of time, and then it was returned to me stained.
Coming from out of town, my wedding dress had been carried on the plane, and I needed it steamed the night before my wedding. No big deal, right? I had them pick it up around 3, and when I returned from the rehearsal dinner at 9, it wasn't back in my room yet. Long story short, it had been placed in another bride's room, and it took them over an hour to locate it. The next day, when I put it on, there was a black ink stain on the upper left part of the dress (right over my chest) that became apparent to everyone. It was the size of a pen mark. It wasn't huge, but because my dress was satin, it was noticeable on the texture. Because of the timing, there was nothing we could do, and I had to move on with my day.
I did let the hotel know after the fact, and they gave us a coupon for a one-night stay, which corresponded to the excellent customer service I had received during my stay there.
I have since had me dress cleaned by a nationally recognized dress preservation company, and the stain didn't budge, which stinks.
Moral of the story...don't let them touch your clothes, but still a great place to stay.
Good for pets. Noisy. Busy. Good staff. Old people should ask for a quiet room. On a busy street. O.K.
In-city Getaway – I come here every so often, when I need to get away from the usual scene and feel pampered. The staff is courteous and attentive to your needs. The renovation is fabulous and the service continues to climb higher and higher in excellence. The location is perfectly situated for downtown activties and events. Highly recommended for in-laws who are visiting, romantic evenings and bachelorettes. All fit this unique hotel!
Best Stay in Portland,OR – What a great experience! The service was ridiculously good. I've never met a friendlier staff and felt more at home in any other hotel. This boutique style hotel is beautiful! The decoration from lobby to room was like stepping into a Interior Design catalog...I walked through the hotel eyeing every corner for decor ideas! From the front desk to the valet guys down below, everyone went out of their way to chat with us, offer directions or places to see, and were just generally nice. Coming from Los Angeles, this felt like another planet! Great place to stay, especially for the money. A hotel like this should cost $300-$400 in any other big city! I highly recommend!
great rooms, even better concierge – In portland last week and stayed at the hotel. While it is slightly off the Main Drag it appears that everything in Portland is within walking distance. Very close to Powells Books, the Pearl District and the Waterfront.
The rooms were very spacious and comfortable and the service was friendly.
The hotel Concierge did a great job at directing to some great restaurants in the city and we will be back because of it.
