I went on a last minute trip to Philly with my SO and we decided to stay at the Hotel Monaco which did not disappoint. The decision to stay here was not based on the location, although the Liberty Bell is literally across the street and everything historical is in close proximity, but based rather on the price the the fact that I've stayed at other Kimpton Hotels. I really enjoy the Kimpton experience and would much rather stay at a hotel that truly cares about not only the guest but the decor. I love the tasteful decisions in every detail of the hotel; it makes me feel like I'm staying somewhere special and unique rather than somewhere bland and cookie cutter.
Like I mentioned earlier, the location cannot be beat if you're looking to be near the historical attractions of Philly. We mostly walked to everything we visited, even the nearby restaurants.
The hotel staff was lovely and the only hiccup we had was an early morning false fire alarm the day we were leaving. They got it sorted out quickly but definitely woke us up earlier than we wanted. Speaking of sleep, I think the beds here are better than the W Hotel Heavenly beds and that says a lot since the W beds are amazing as well.
Would not hesitate to recommend someone to stay here or even stay here again.
