Located only two blocks from the bustle of Union Square, the Monaco Hotel maintains an air of comfortable calm.
The San Francisco Monaco Hotel has 201 rooms and suites, all of which include European linens, Chinese-inspired armoires, plush terrycloth shower curtains, and ceramic-tile bathroom floors. The vibrant decor is a feast for the senses: Lime-green-and-yellow-striped wallpaper offsets red chinoise canopies, bamboo writing desks, and high-backed chairs.
The Monaco Hotel is attached to the popular Grand Cafe, a pre and post-theater brasserie that looks like a 1920s Paris train station.
Tucked on the bottom floor of the Monaco Hotel are a workout room and a petite urban spa offering full regimen of massage and facials, a spa, steam room, sauna, and private changing rooms with lockers.
Monaco Hotel is one of the rare dog-friendly downtown San Francisco hotels.
