Memorable Wedding Night at Hotel Monaco

from A TripAdvisor Member
Our stay at the Denver Hotel Monaco in May 2004 was a perfect capstone to the most wonderful day of our lives.

We departed for a Parisian honeymoon two days after the wedding and thus debated about whether we should further splurge on a wedding night hotel. We are so glad we did! Our reception was at the Brown Palace, but we decided to stay at the Hotel Monaco when I found a $99 rate online.

When we arrived at the Monaco dressed in our wedding finery, the desk staff warmly congratulated us and upgraded our standard room to the "Grace Slick" suite. It was well appointed and luxurious in a quirky and colorful way. The suite was huge with great high ceilings and tall windows. We loved unwinding with champagne and Aveda products in our jacuzzi tub - tres romantique! We also got a kick out of the pet goldfish that was brought to our room.

We were married the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, so we were able to get free street parking (I've read that the valet rate is a bit steep). Also, the hotel restaurant was closed for the holiday, so the Monaco put on a complimentary continental breakfast spread Monday morning. These fortuitous aspects of our stay helped to make it a great bargain and lovely experience! We are looking forward to returning on our anniversary.

re laid back and we were annoyed

from girlchicago
Stayed at the Hotel Monaco earlier this month for my anniversary. Notified concierge that we wanted a special, romantic weekend. When we arrived, she had saved us a special room, except we were not warned that the entire floor was having its carpet removed. After we tried to unwind from a Rockies game, the hammering got to be too much. We complained, and the best they could do was a room with two double beds (it was our anniversary! and I paid for a king!) and a bottle of champagne. We are laid back, so we just took it. Waited 2 hours for the champagne - while enjoying the free wine service and apps - which was the BEST part of the hotel! Then complained again, and finally received a king bedroom, views of the mountains and the bottle of champagne. So although in the end it was one of our best anniversaries, it took a LONG time and a lot of complaining to get it. For the price, stay at the Oxford.

Loved Monaco hated Valet

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Monaco and loved the room. It was on the second floor and had a view of the city, which wasn't the greatest but it was quiet. The designs in the room was unusual but somehow worked into a European feel. Our bed was only turned down the first night of our stay. The main problem we had was the valet service. Each day/night something went wrong from waiting a half hour at the curb for our car to losing keys. They also treated us in a very unprofessional manor and inappropriate comments from young staff. Despite this, the management was very accomadating and concerned upon check out. We would definetely recommend this hotel but due to these incidents we only rated it average. We would stay here again just use the parking garage next door.

Great experience

from Washand
I booked a king size room at a very reasonable price ($89/night) but then on arrival, I upgraded to a junior suite for an extra $25/night. I have some experience of good hotel rooms and have stayed in suites at the Ritz Carlton for a lot more, but I have to say that nothing can beat this elegant hotel for sheer romantic appeal. If you want a wonderful environment to ignite romantic feelings, look no further. Bring your favourite CDs, close the curtains that divide the bedroom from the sitting room and pour the wine. Enjoy the unmistakably Monaco-style decor and bed and feel like a king and queen when you wake up. What more can I say?

The worst

from A TripAdvisor Member
Truly awful. The room was extremely small and faced the back. I was awoken both nights by the garbage truck. The TV offered a yoga channel, and you could get a mat from the concierge. However, the room was so small, I have no idea where I could have done yoga! The room service came wring both days and took over an hour to come (when they quoted 20 minutes when I made the order. The internet service was down with no notice, and no apology. The hotel was terrible and the service was worse. I travel quite a bit (both business and pleasure) and have never had such an unpleasant experience.

Stylish and Elegant

from A TripAdvisor Member
Every time I've stayed here, I've had a great experience. The rooms are large, and very clean. The decor is elegant without being pretentious.

The service is unbelieveable. Anything you need, they will take care of it for you.

Parking is a bit expensirve ($21/day), but given that it's right downtown, it's tolerable.

The restaurant is very nice. Great Bar.

My favorite hotel in the world!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I mean it - the Hotel Monaco Denver is my favorite hotel EVER. My husband and I stayed in a Mediterranean Suite for our wedding night three years ago and have returned for every anniversary since. The staff is courteous and professional, the rooms are BEAUTIFUL, the bath tubs are huge and room service is delicious. On top of those things are the little touches that make a hotel that much more special, like the gold fish that can be sent to your room if you're lonely. Because we visit for big celebration weekends, I haven't seen the regular guest rooms, but the Mediterranean Suite is magnificent. You won't be disappointed!

What a wonderful weekend!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just returned from a two day get-away at the Monaco. What a marvelous experience! The staff was exceptionally friendly, especially the bellstaff and front desk staff. We ordered room service a number of times and the food was both hot and delicious. I loved the room design - funky and cheerful. The evening wine hour was very pleasant - while Lily wasn't in, the sweetheart of an Italian Greyhound made everyone smile. The bed was amazing - best hotel bed I've ever experienced. My one (minor) quibble is that the concierge did not return my call in response to questions about the pet policy. And one final note -it was lovely to be in a gay friendly hotel - narry a blink at one king bed for two women!

Great Location

from Go-Buffs-Go
We stayed at the Monaco since we were seeing a show at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and didn't want to drive home afterwards. Parking is a real challenge unless you use valet ($21). The hotel was really cool although our room was right next to the elevator shaft so we heard that throughout the night. The front desk clerk had an "oh well" attitude when we mentioned it the next morning. The food at Panzano's was awesome albeit a bit pricey. We tried to get a cab to the show since it was snowing but had little luck and ended up walking.
We'd return...

Nice room, comfy bed

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed the night on New Years Eve...enjoyed the room and really thought the bed to be very comfy compared to most hotels. However the front desk didn't seem to have a clue as to what was being offered for the night and being a pet friendly place we wanted the fish bowl in our room and we had to ask for a fish three times. Little pricey but the room and our view was worth it.

Top Local Tips for Denver

Vegetarian food You're in cattle country, folks. There are options for vegetarians, they're just harder to find than on the east or west coasts. If you don't like getting all your protein from cheese, then it's time to get creative. Here are some decent restaurants that have vege options: The Watercourse (all vege/ vegan), Wahoo's Fish Taco (some vege choices & funky atmosphere), Wynkoop Brewery (vege & vegan entrees, like polenta, not some lame vege burger), Ted's Montana Grill (ok it's a vege burger, but a darn good one), Jamba Juice, India House, Rioja (wow, just... wow).

Art Museum The new Denver Modern Art Museum is not to be missed. A very cool building and great collection.

You're in the perfect location This hotel is one block off the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall. There are some many great restaurants and shopping just outside the door of the hotel. Hotel Monaco is located mid-point on the mall, so you are never far from anything in the area. All of the major sporting arenas/stadiums are very close by as well. There is a free shuttle bus that travels up and down the mall all the time.
