Finding a hotel that is both family and pet-friendly is no easy task! But we stumbled upon the perfect hotel on our recent trip to Salt Lake City, Utah – The Kimpton Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City. Located in downtown Salt Lake, the Monaco is walking distance from many of the top tourist sites. It was love at first sight.
The hotel not only allows dogs, it welcomes them! The first thing that you find in the entry is a water bowl and this sign. Our golden retriever, Oso was delighted by the dog-loving valet and the bowl of fresh water. We’d just driven from Moab, and he was dog tired!
Our teen was drawn to the bright lobby full of comfy sofas and board games. They even have bikes you can borrow to explore the town.
The Kimpton offers coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the morning and a hosted wine reception from 5 to 6 pm.
The rooms are spacious with fun decor! We stayed in a Deluxe Guestroom with Two Doubles. We were just traveling with our teen so the room fit the 3 of us perfectly and Oso had plenty of room to stretch out. We even had a great view of the city!
The room included all the small touches that make a hotel stand out: large flat screen TV, bath amenities by Atelier Bloem, complimentary overnight shoe shine, and soft robes. They even include a yoga mat in each room.
The Monaco made sure to take care of our dog. The room included bowls for water and food, a door hanger to remind housekeeping that a pet was in the room and no pet fees! They even have a Director of Pet Relations, who can help with recommendations of pet-friendly restaurants and parks.
The food at the Kimpton was excellent. The hotel is home to a New American bistro called Bambara. It is in a beautiful room with arched windows and a contemporary design. The space was once a bank and the bank’s vault is now an intimate bar. We loved the food! It was so good that we ended eating dinner at the restaurant both nights that we were in Salt Lake.
We loved our time at the Kimpton Monaco Salt Lake City. It was a fun place to stay and the staff was so friendly and helpful. We can’t wait to return!
