Luxury digs in the heart of downtown

Making up for its lack of casinos, F-1 racers, and snooty French accents with luxury rooms plopped within walking distance of pretty much every corner of downtown, Hotel Monaco's pet-friendly accommodations come with one of Portland's awesomest upscale happy hours right in the lobby.

Rooms rock ultra-plush beds, and most also feature separate living rooms with desks and flatscreens.

No matter your room, you're gonna see lots of stuff with birds on it. Because this is Portland.

There's a 24hr fitness facility in addition to free yoga classes in case you're feeling a little stiff.

There're also complimentary bikes you can use to cruise all over downtown, or, if you're lazy, the bus and light rail are just a few steps away. You could probably hire a pedi-cab to take you those 50 feet.

Monaco also plays host to Red Star, a celebrated restaurant & steakhouse that boasts a huge, under-$10 food happy hour, along with one of the larger selections of spirits in town.
