Spent the weekend in the city with my wife. I am a big fan of Kipton Hotels and the Monaco is one of the best. Great location in the heart of Independence Hall area. The rooms are very cool and the amenities are great.

We stayed at the Hotel Monaco for one night and could not have been more pleased. The valets were friendly and helpful, the decor is gorgeous, the rooms are luxurious and ultra clean and the price more than reasonable. Oh, and it's pet friendly!

From the moment you walk into the foyer there is a quaint buzz. The rooms are quite exquisite, the size of the bedroom and bathroom are exceptional. The location is central to all the local exhibits.

Recent stay with my family, upon our check in the front desk, Vallet Service and Bellman were all very friendly and helpful. I appreciate a smooth check in. Loved the location and historical views of Independence Hall and other locations. Our room was just adequate however, the beds were too firm and pillows were not at a grade you would... More

My wife and I spent a few days while we were interviewing for jobs in Philly and couldn't have been happier with the Monaco! Everything was great -- interesting, well-appointed rooms, a great lounge with a complimentary happy hour (it was super cold that week and they made a nice whiskey and tea drink!) and the hotel is in a...

This hotel is always wonderful- my husband and I have stayed here multiple times including on our wedding night. Service is amazing- staff even gave my young cousins a "pet fish" for the night and asked them to name it. Wine hour is fun and access to the restaurant and roof bar make the stay feel almost like a vacation... More

I've been a kimpton member for years and the Philadelphia Monaco doesn't disappoint. We originally reserved a Parkview room but they upgraded us to the corner spa room ... for free. They said they pick one overnight reservation a night and upgrade them to the top room, if it's available. Our room overlooked Indepence Hall. The only drawback was it... More

Well appointed. Good service. Gladly would return. Corner suite with a view of the historic liberty bell site well worth it. Step right out onto the street into history. Room 902. Gym was well equipped. Starbucks and parking garage within walking distance (instead of valet).
