The Monaco is part of the Kimpton chain. This hotel opened about two years ago. Nice place. The Kimpton chain typically gets their properties right. A cool, edgy vibe to this boutique property. Great location away from Center City. In a wonderful, old landmark Building built in 1907. Staff was supportive, helpful and informative from the curb side in. We... More

Had a great experience at the Monaco, staff was very courtesy and helpful. Even brought a couple items to my room that I had forgotten to pack (toothbrush, razor) in the middle of the night. Had a chance to check out the Tavern as well as the rooftop bar, both excellent but not over-crowded. Easy cab ride to most locations... More

Why did I go to Miami for my vacation in September instead of Hotel Monaco in Philly??? I wanted to stay one more night but unfortunately they were already sold out. I wish I had booked more nights ahead of time but I will have to wait until next time. :-( I will miss the staff at Hotel Monaco. I... More

Great hotel located in a prime spot! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable! The rooms are tastefully decorated. The king size bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows! Housekeeping was very accomadating. They actually asked when it would be convenient to clean the room!We loved the Monaco and Philly!

JAS4343 - Thank you for choosing the Monaco! We can't wait for you to stay again either. Hopefully you had an opportunity to check out our nightly wine reception...it tends to make the beds even MORE comfortable. Cheers! Mark More

You have to understand, when you walk into your very nice, very hip, TINY bedroom, that this hotel is about location, location, location. Over $300 per night for a TINY (but very nice) room, that looks out over the park, Independence Hall, the harbor, and the nearby bridge. Easy to walk to everything (Liberty Bell, Constitution Center, Historic area Visitor... More

BruceandCathy - Thank you to you and your friends for staying with us on your recent trip to Philadelphia. Similar the array of views we offer, we also have a variety of room sizes to choose from. They range from our deluxe rooms to our 3 room suites. Part of the reason for the variety of sizes is that the... More

This was my second time to hotel Monico. The first time with my sister who lives near Philly and it was such a perfect place for a girls weekend! This time in town to visit my sister again with my husband. I had no doubt that he had to experience hotel Monico! We got a corner spa tub room! It... More

Murphys50s - Sounds like we're going to be seeing a lot more of each other (thank your sister for us please)! The corner spa rooms are my favorite room type - they feel like they're right on top of Independence Hall...not to mention the beautiful bathroom too. Thank you for staying with us again and again.

This was our first experience staying at a Hotel Monaco and we were extremely pleased. This particular one was quite lovely, location was superb - convenient to many historical venues and to the location of a wedding we were attending. The entire staff were extremely helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant... More

Hopefully we'll see you again soon, but it's understood if you want to give Alexandria, DC, Denver, Chicago, San Francisco, Portland, Salt Lake, Seattle, Pittsburgh a try too - we're all... More

Great location in the historic area. Trendy décor - extremely clean and fresh, unlike some of the older, rather musty Philadelphia hotels. The customer service is excellent, and complimentary wine at the end of the day in the downstairs lounge is a nice touch. Restaurant atmosphere is a bit funky, but very good food. The rooftop lounge and bar are... More

Angela B - Thank you for staying with us. A 27-day road trip with a family of four sounds daunting to say the least. Awesome but tiring. Clearly we're happy the hotel itself met your needs, but even more disappointed that the service fell a little short. Unfortunately our goldfish took a brief sabbatical this summer, but there's no reason... More

The atmosphere was funky, from the greeter at the front door to the décor. The room was small. The in-room safe was high on a closet shelf, making access difficult. The sliding door for the bathroom sometimes took both of us to open and close. No coffee maker. Rooftop lounge was closed for a private party. The location is great... More

ConstantTravelers - I think being called funky is a compliment...at least as far as our doormen go. So thank you for acknowledging their uniqueness. Sorry that you missed Stratus this time around. Hopefully next time you swing through. Next time we can also have a coffeemaker waiting in your room ahead of time - just give us a shout or... More
