We reached Kimpton Hotel Monaco after a long, 4.5-hour drive to Pittsburgh, arriving just after 10 p.m. The front desk attendant greeted us by name, and welcomed us from behind a plastic divider for COVID purposes. My first impression of the lobby was magnificent. The eclectic décor and modern ambience were undeniable throughout, and one of my favorite aspects of the property. Shortly after check-in, I received a text from the front desk agent welcoming me and offering this text service as a way to ask questions, request amenities and so on.

Our corner queen room awaited us at the end of a long hallway lit with floral décor and bright blue doors. Large windows took over the walls and provided a great view of downtown Pittsburgh, while thick, houndstooth-patterned curtains offered privacy and shade from the lights of the city.

A pop of green color in the plush headboards tied in the diverse décor of the entire hotel. A vintage-looking armoire held the television and mini-fridge, with a matching, shared night table between the beds. However, I would have preferred more outlet access from the beds as the one built into the night table was out of use. The bathroom followed suit with yellow houndstooth wallpaper wrapping the walls around a fairly large standing shower and single sink.

Both front desk agents I communicated with highly recommended The Commoner, the full-service restaurant on site. They suggested I make a reservation as capacity was decreased due to the pandemic, which I did with ease. The brunch menu offered many selections, such as quiche, French toast and pork belly with eggs — which I enjoyed and finished every bite of. Normally the restaurant features a Bloody Mary bar, but for sanitary reasons I was only able to order one from the menu.

I received another text from the front desk agent through the hotel’s service, wishing me a good morning and asking if I needed linens or towels. I appreciated this option, a clear priority to reduce wash cycles and waste. The showers also featured large, multiuse containers secured to the walls instead of single-use bottles that waste product and plastic.

Other amenities include meeting space and ballrooms, as well as a common living area with wine service, and an on-site gym featuring a Peloton bicycle. The location of the Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Pittsburgh is ideal for anyone visiting the city. With access to downtown, the Strip District, Shady Side and the University of Pittsburgh’s campus, this modern hotel is a wonderful option for your stay.

The new hotel lies within the historic, nine-story Latrobe Building, a former 1912 apartment building with an early Italian Renaissance design.
