Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City, the host of such annual benefit events as the Red Party and summer’s Pink Party for Pride, has been named one of the top 500 hotels in the world.
Travel + Leisure Magazine named the Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants boutique property as one of its nearly 200 highest-rated U.S. hotels in its sixth annual T+L 500. In making the list, the magazine’s global staff of reporters and editors determined the best rooms, services and amenities in each hotel and what differentiates each from their local competitors.
Editors called Hotel Monaco “A hotel with personality (evening wine receptions; a Director of Pet Relations) and a convenient location.”
The hotel scored an 82.93 out of a possible 100. Rankings were based on a survey of Travel + Leisure subscribers who were unaffiliated with any travel organization. Respondents were asked to rate on a scale of one to five (one meaning poor and five meaning excellent) hotels rooms and facilities, location, service, restaurants and food, and value for money spent. Respondents were also given the option to rank the hotels on these categories in terms of appropriateness for business and family accommodations.
This is not the only honor Hotel Monaco has received at the start of 2008. The hotel just received its 8th annual Four Diamond Award from travel AAA. It is one of only 14 Utah lodgings to receive the honor.
Hotel Monaco’s general manager MaryLynn Beck said that she and the rest of the hotel’s staff are “thrilled” to get these recognitions.
“The Hotel Monaco, in keeping with all Kimpton hotels, is lifestyle driven. We support guests in maintaining and enriching their lifestyles on the road – whether they are traveling for business, pleasure or both,” she said.
