Why Stay At Hotel Monaco Chicago
Chic 14-story hotel with epic river and skyline views in a highly walkable location just steps from the Riverwalk, metro stations and Loop areas.
Housed in a former hat factory dating back to 1912, Hotel Monaco's Art Deco-style interior displays a rich color palette both elegant and warmly welcoming with just a touch of whimsy. The theme extends to each of the 191 quirky rooms, which feature hues of dark walnut complemented by lush shades of crimson and blue. Rooms most notably have breathtaking views of the River and surrounding skyscrapers from window seats that will comfortably accommodate two. The boutique hotel—a member of the Kimpton Group—adds special guest-friendly touches like complimentary morning coffee in the lobby and a daily wine reception. (Tip: Don't miss the Strawberry Watermelon Basil Sangria.) South Water Kitchen, the onsite restaurant, serves American comfort food. A note to pet lovers: Your furry four-legged friends get to stay for free and are pampered with special pet amenities including welcome treats and dog beds. Pet couldn't make the trip? Consider adopting one of the hotel's companionable goldfish for the duration of your stay.
Take advantage of the hotel's complimentary bike rentals or join the Executive Chef on a morning run (part of the Run Like a Local Program) along the lakeside trail.
Sign-up for Kimpton's free InTouch membership. You receive $10 of mini bar items during your stay and also get to enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi access.
Arrive at Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) which is approximately 18 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 25 to 40 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.225 N Wabash Ave, Chicago, Illinois, United States

Why We Love Chicago
America's Second City manages to strike the balance between urban amenities such as upscale shopping and seemingly limitless dining options on the one hand and tranquil parks and lakeshore on the other.
809 W Randolph St
Where to Drink: Maude's Liquor Bar is a West Loop treasure for subdued ambience and expertly concocted long drinks. Order a Smokey Violet Smash and settle into a cushy leather chair to crowd-watch.
840 W Randolph St.
Where to Shop: A stroll along the Magnificent Mile is nearly mandatory while in Chicago. Head to Water Tower Place, a 74-story skyscraper or 900 N. Michigan Place anchored by a flagship store Bloomingdale's plus 70 luxury retailers like Gucci and Michael Kors.
Water Tower Place
900 N. Michigan Place
Outdoor Excursion: For a relaxed daytrip to get out of the big city, take a 1½-hour drive up Lake Michigan's shore to Harbor Country. It consists of eight unique small towns including Grand Beach, New Buffalo and Union Pier, which offer visitors sandy beaches, walking trails, antique shops and even wineries.
