Checking In: Kimpton Hotel Monaco Seattle

Checking In: Kimpton Hotel Monaco Seattle

I’m going to start with saying that I have never been to Seattle nor have I ever been anywhere near the Pacific-northwest. With no expectations, we landed in SEA and headed straight to our hotel. (It was about 11pm, don’t judge.) Seattle brought many first’s, but the most special one is that prior to our trip, I had never stayed at a Kimpton Hotel before. I left feeling certain I might never go back to any other brand… Kimpton’s Instagram describes their brand spot on: Unique, Stylish, Spirited. Let’s be real here though, Kimpton you had me at the wallpaper in the bedroom.

The Space

We had the opportunity to stay in a high rise standard king room the first night and on the second night we found ourselves in a spacious suite on the fourth floor. It overlooked some pretty amazing street views and falling orange leaves. The sitting area had enough space to sit 5 or 6 comfortably. Curtains separated the bedroom where the magic of the space comes to life. I loved the view, the walls and the convenient amenities. Each closet came prepped with 2 robes, a yoga mat and an umbrella.

Each night, they serve complimentary wine in the lobby with a fire blazing. Every part of the hotel was created for comfort and relaxation and having a service such as this allows a guest to feel at home. Whether you want coffee in your room or coffee on the way out in the lobby, Kimpton does their best to provide anything you might need to enjoy your stay.



Outlier aims to bring the “many faces of Seattle” together to create this unique type of ambiance. Grab a signature cocktail for happy hour  or sip coffee as you await your Eggs Benedict. (We did both). Both drinks and food on the menu are carefully created with the best ingredients. The service was outstanding and if you know me aside from the food, that’s what really makes a good experience turn great.

The verdict

If you’re looking for a hotel in the perfect location, Kimpton Hotel Monaco is the place to be. Its just a short walk away from Pike Place Market and right across the street from the Seattle Public Library. We even walked to the space needle and back. & if walking isn’t your thing borrow a bike from the front desk. This service is complimentary and is a great way to explore the city! The location, amenities and design will make your trip to Seattle one to remember.
