The Kimpton Hotel Monaco was within walking distance to most things we wanted to see and do thereby eliminating the need for a car. The room was great, the staff very helpful and thoughtful touches like umbrellas in room, a yoga mat for your use during your stay and a bottle of wine and some chocolates greeting us were most welcome. But the towels! The towels were so thin and scratchy they made me angry. The pro I guess being that they were like an exfoliating treatment. To be fair when I expressed my dismay about the prison towels in my guest survey I received a personal response from the hotel GM agreeing with me and telling me that new towels had already been ordered for the hotel (I think he meant that the decision had been made before my comment, not because of it but you never know.) There were free bicycles available for guests as well which if you feel like getting quite a workout on the hills of Seattle, are great. I did not partake in the bicycles as one hour of simply walking up and down the hills of Seattle made me feel like my ass was on fire and actually situated somewhere around my shoulders. I have no doubt that the bicycles would have resulted in a hospital visit of some sort. The concierge was great arranging a wine tour and finding us some late night Pho on the 4th of July.
