I loved the property from the moment I pulled up at the front door and asked the Doorman/Parking Valet if the Monaco Hotel was the same as the Kimpton Hotel (so much for my hospitality knowledge). After he assured me that it was, I surrendered my car to him for the $40.00 overnight valet parking fee and proceeded to the interior. I had been advised by the doorman that the check-in desk was on the second floor so saw some marble stairs and decided to walk up, having driven for 3.5 hours and needing some exercise. Well, it was exercise indeed - easily 30 feet up three flights of elegant marble stairs. I was cheerily greeted at the check-in desk and check-in was a breeze - nothing to sign, initial, spindle or mutilate. I went directly to my room and loved it. A fantastic thermostat system, huge bathroom by today's standards (which actually seemed to have a heated mirror I discovered the next morning after showering), a fully stocked mini-bar, luxurious bed with great pillows and bed covers - the only thing I lacked was directions to the ice machine, and a quick phone call solved that. While in the room I reviewed, on line, the hotel's restaurant (B & O American Brasserie) and while raising an eyebrow at the prices (all in the $$$-$$$$ range) as an appreciator of fine dining I thought "I'm going to really enjoy dining here tonight". I went down to the first floor. . .up one three-step flight into the restaurant, using the banister (I'm sure that word comes from the Spanish "bien estar" - to be well or good) to help me as I'm a quite senior citizen. Wow! It was kind of sticky - note to self - tell restaurant to wipe it down every other day or so. I was seated shortly after arriving and my drink order was taken immediately - "Beefeater martini, straight up, very dry, twist". It arrived shortly thereafter in a glass that I can best describe as a cordial glass - sort of a squat tulip shape curving slightly inwards at the top. Curious! Ounces - hard to say. It was OK. The twist was well executed. The volume seemed decidedly less than what one would receive in a normal Martini glass. I ordered, for starters, a gazpacho that was superb - got to give them that! Then, a key item on the menu that caught my eye was oysters - but $3.00 each? Ok, I'm an oyster lover, after all, we have Merroir here in the Northern Neck of Virginia where I live (where oysters run $15.00 per dozen at this rather expensive boutique restaurant) so I felt I needed to try them. Compared to the Old Salts or Rappahannocks that we get here, these oysters were miniatures! The oysters were brought out on a bed of. . .wait for it. . .rock salt! Come on - we're not talking Oysters Rockefeller here, which need to remain hot - we're talking iced, chilled, fresh oysters, which need to remain as cold as possible. But, wait, that's not all! No cocktail sauce, no Tabasco, no Horseradish, and no offer of any of these. Hmm. . . Also, there was a lemon wedge left over from the gazpacho delivery, but none accompanied the oysters. This was, overall, a huge fail! Still hungry, and a great fan of chicken wings, I ordered the duck wings. These were delivered fairly promptly. If you've never seen duck wings before, they are elongated spindly versions of chicken wings. While a chicken rarely flies, ducks fly all the time, so the muscles are much more developed. Two of the wings were perfectly cooked, two were over-cooked to the point of charring in the thinnest parts. The sauce used on them was extremely tasty, rather sweet, and very sticky. Since I noted no extra napkins nor a bone plate on the table I saw the chef (sous-chef?) walking by and stopped him to ask for both items, and they were delivered. It turns out that a little hand-wipe packet would have been in order as well, as it was impossible to eat the wings with a knife and fork; only the hand would do. And getting that stickiness off with a mere napkin was impossible. Which brings us back to my entrance to the restaurant, and the stickiness on the banister - now I knew the source! Breakfast the next morning, same restaurant - I ordered two eggs and bacon. They were served promptly. No salt and pepper on the table. There were two pieces of toast on the plate, but no butter or jam on the table. Come on Kimpkin - you've got some problems down there on the first floor! They are not up to the rest of your standards! But the hote - I love it! And if I can find a good restaurant nearby, I'll stay there on my next visit to Johns Hopkins! Collapse

If you like old buildings, this is a good stop for you. Former HQ of old B&O railroad, it has a beautiful entry full of marble and Tiffany glass. The room was large with high ceilings with comfortable beds. Location was walkable to Inner Harbor but not right on it. My only complaint would be that the bathroom fixtures were not up to the quality I've experienced in other Kimpton properties. I couple different items fell off in my hand. I could put them back but it was surprising. Collapse

We booked the Hotel Monaco on a recent trip to see a game at Oriole Park. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and would highly recommend it. The staff were all very nice, helpful, and eager to help out in any way possible. They may use feel at home. The room was spacious with more than enough room for 5 (the bunk beds were prefect for the kids). There even was an X-box in the room but we ended up not renting any games because we were so busy. The hotel is located within walking distance to Oriole Park or Inner Harbor. The wine reception was extra nice as gave you a chance to talk with other hotel guests. And yes, dogs are not only allowed but pampered in the hotel with treats and water. Collapse

I stayed at this hotel for work and I was so impressed that I'm looking for an excuse to go back to Baltimore and stay here again. The building is so lovely and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. It's a pretty short walk to the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards (though be careful at night but that's really just anywhere in Baltimore) and a short Uber ride to the train station. It's a nice touch that they include a yoga mat! I definitely used that for a little exercise. I also love the little touches of B&O history everywhere. My only complaint is that I called to have a little fish companion and never got one! Oh well. But yes, stay at this hotel! You won't regret it! Collapse
Historic, with style
Stay Date: 12/2016, Bob B wrote this review.
Nice hotel with historic lobby. Restaurant was acceptable but not at a level to match the hotel. Hotel was within walking distance of the Inner Harbor, which was very nice. Multiple restaurants within a few blocks.
