Overlooking the river in downtown Chicago, Hotel Monaco is right in the centre of the action. Just steps away are parks, galleries, museums and famous stores, from Bloomingdale’s to Saks Fifth Avenue, while the magnificent skyscrapers that give the city its iconic skyline are all around you.
There’s a state-of-the-art fitness centre at Hotel Monaco, but if it’s wellness treatments you’re after, take advantage of the in-room spa services, where you can indulge in massages, body wraps, facials and more, all in the comfort and privacy of your own room.
The designer-decorated rooms and suites at Hotel Monaco are colourful and contemporary, and have bags of personality – from the animal-print bathrobes to the companion goldfish that can reside in your room if you wish! And with comfy seats in the bay windows, you can make the most of the incredible city views. The Mediterranean spa suite has a Jacuzzi and a separate sitting room.
There’s tons to keep you occupied during your stay at Hotel Monaco. A river or lake cruise is a must, while a short walk away is Navy Pier, where all of Chicago gathers for the outdoor shows, shops, eateries, funfair and IMAX theatre – all on the shores of Lake Michigan. Also nearby is the city’s Cultural Mile, home to the Art Institute, Symphony Hall and Millennium Park where there are always exciting outdoor events taking place.
Hotel Monaco’s restaurant, South Water Kitchen, offers bold Midwestern flavours, from local ribs to succotash, with a modern slant. A hosted wine hour takes place between 5pm and 6pm every evening in the lobby bar, where you can sample hand-picked wines and mingle with your fellow guests.
