My husband and I live a couple hundred miles away from Philadelphia, and we often make the drive down for weekends away. We usually stay at the Palomar (another Kimpton hotel in Philly), but decided to give the Monaco a try for a change.
We booked the Parkview King Room and our initial room was disappointing. We weren't happy with a second floor room with the only view being of the people walking on the busy street. We went back to the front desk to ask for a change, and although the woman who handled our check in wasn't quite as friendly as the first time around, she exchanged our room for one on the 8th floor that was much better.
The room was wonderfully appointed. The decor is loud but really fun. Comfortable bed and good bathroom and shower.
Our only other troubles were music from somewhere in the hotel that played well into the night, and a valet who pocketed a $5 bill from our car's cup holder.
All in all, the Monaco was a good hotel, but for our next trip we'll go back to the Palomar.
