Aren't you tired of the same old same old hotels? I am.
In Philly for business and turned to my trusted advisor - Tripadvisor - for a place to stay. The reviews for The Hotel Monaco were exemplary and the hotel was ranked #1. The pictures and reviews all described a hotel that was not the same old, same old.
I'm happy to report: it's a cool place and the price isn't in the nosebleed section. Not budget, mind you. But for a great location downtown and for a funky yet elegant hotel with great service, the price was fair.
The lobby is very unusual but warm and inviting. Check out the frosted glass hanging teapot lamps. Haven't seen that before! In fact, most of the lighting fixtures throughout the hotel are definitely not from Home Depot. Most were custom and cool.
My room was decorated in a unique, elegant but definitely upbeat and non-stuffy way. No brown wood furniture here! The bathroom had bleached wood look strip tile flooring. The linens were comfy and cool.
I had room service and it was ok - In my opinion better food would get the Monaco that 5th bubble for Excellent.
Overall - Cool!
