The Hotel Monaco, one of several Kimpton properties in the vicinity of Union Square, manages to achieve a certain swank despite the rooms' slightly dated dot-com–era decor. Still, the look—a riot of mismatched stripes and checks—remains fun, and there are some quirky touches that set the hotel apart: Pets are welcome, a goldfish is delivered on request to keep guests company, and bathrobes are emblazoned with leopard and zebra prints. The on-site spa, intended to evoke a contemporary Roman bath, includes a sauna, steam room, and hot tub, plus a 24-hour gym and various massage treatments. The Grand Café serves French brasserie food in a beautiful turn-of-the-century ballroom. A complimentary wine and cheese reception is held nightly in the sumptuous lobby, which has a frescoed ceiling, a large fireplace, and a sweeping marble staircase.—Updated by John Vlahides
