We spent one night at this hotel at the end of our vacation on the way home. The hotel itself was positive, reliable Monaco experience. I'm a frequent Kimpton guest. This Monaco is on par with other Monaco properties I've had in other cities. Plus I was celebrating my birthday and the staff surprised me with cake and bubbly. So all was good until breakfast the next morning.
We had such a poor experience at the Red Owl Tavern for breakfast that I'll not revisit the restaurant or hotel. We were consist ely ignored by or server, ended up woth the wrong food and then experienced a truly condescending attitude from the manager on duty. It was decidedly not Kimpton worthy. See my review for Red Owl Tavern.
I spent a week in Philly three months later but due to my Red Owl Tavern experience, I went to the Loews.More
