Expert Tip. At check-in, a Hotel Monaco Chicago signature trademark features a bowl of glimmering goldfish, something each guest is encouraged to take to guestrooms for the duration of the visit. The hotel staff is trained to feed and take care of the goldfish so all guests are required to do is name the fish.
