Great hotel, beds were wonderfully comfortable. The staff were v helpful and knowledgable. Pub/restaurant attached sold a good selection of craft beers and food. The hotel is very well placed to visit the historic district. Excellent overall

Thank you for staying with us whilst on holiday! The beer in Philly is no joke and Red Owl Tavern takes it just as serious as everyone else in this town. Happy you were able to enjoy both the hotel and restaurant during your visit.

Cheers -

We stayed at this hotel over the weekend while babysitting our son's dog. We were looking forward to this weekend given that we used to live in Old City. Its location is strategically located to all of our favorite places. However, Lexi (the dog) decided she was lonely when we left the hotel Friday night and needless to say we had to come back to the hotel to take care of her. After contacting Guest Services and at their suggestion, Lexi (the dog) spent a few hours with the Guest Services team in their office. Talk about a great customer (and dog) experience. Still raving about staff from the time I pulled up to the Hotel to the Guest Services Team. Also hotel made us feel special even as they successfully managed many wedding events around us. We will definitely be back next time we are in Phila.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. Decor is awesome and drives excitement from the time you walk into the Hotel l...

We won't tell your son that you snuck out for a little you time while babysitting Lexi. And frankly we are happy you did as we love the opportunity to take care of our guests' dogs...it's like "take your dog to work without having to take them home and pay for all the other associated expenses" day!

Hope you get to come back to your old stomping grounds sooner than later. Please bring Lexi too!

Almost weekly business trips to Philly have allowed me to stay at a number of different places. I've stayed at all the top places in Center City...but the Hotel Monaco is the place I call "home". I can't say enough good things; top of the line staff (especially doormen, front desk, housekeeping), very comfortable and kitschy rooms (and I've been in a great number of them), thoughtful touches and amenities, and a genuine care/concern/warmth in all my interactions across the board. Great location for transportation, a short walk to the best restaurants/bars in Center City. Awesome (complimentary) wine hour has allowed me to meet and converse with many other interesting guests and visitors. Flawless in all respects; the hotel part of my business trips is always the most fun. Will always look forward to my Hotel Monaco stay!!

You're awesome! We look forward to you coming back probably even more than you look forward to coming back. In the Kimpton family, you're definitely an immediate member. We can't wait until your next visit.

A good hotel. good service. We had a very nice stay in the city last September (2013). My husband and I were in N.Y. and took the bus to Philadelphia - megabus. Best to buy the tickets on their website. It was a 20 to 30 minutes walk from the metro station, and you wait in the middle of nowhere for the bus. could be the station's location was changed due to traffic or transport change or construction.

Thank you for visiting the Hotel last September. Definitely must have made an impression. There are a million ways to get into the city, megabus is definitely an affordable one. If you need assistance with transportation once in the city, please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly.

Safe travels -

This hotel is right across from the Liberty Bell and historic buildings in downtown Philadelphia. Everything is nearby.
They did an incredible job of restoring the building, the hotel is beautiful.
From the elevators to the lobby the decor and features are gorgeous.
Hotel staff are pleasant and informed. Bikes are free to use and they serve wine in the lobby from 5-6. How can you go wrong?
I was upgrated to a larger room with a view of the plaza.
Great bar!
Would love to stay again

"How can you go wrong?" That is probably rhetorical...but I'll answer anyhow: You can't! Thanks for choosing the Monaco. Hope to see you again soon.

We have stayed in a Kimpton hotel previously. Our experience was enjoyed this go around as they have been in the past. We love their rooms, beds and friendly staff.
Came to Philly for the night. Did not realize it was Flag Day; even more fun, but streets were closed and extremely busy. We arrived early (1pm). Our room was ready and perfect.
Enjoyed the happy hour. Great night on the town. You get what you pay for; these rooms are wonderful. Worth the stay & trip. Views of Signers Square & Independence Hall.

This town loves a good patriotic party. Not sure who else celebrates Flag Day out there, but it's definitely a Thing here. Probably helped by Betsy Ross having a house just around the corner from the hotel. Glad you were able to navigate the streets and make it here for a great weekend. Hope to see you again soon.

My wife and I could not have been happier with this hotel during our annual trip to Philadelphia. From check-in to check-out the staff made our stay comfortable and relaxing. Even though there were wedding events going on things went smoothly (although one of the wedding parties essentially overwhelmed the Red Owl Tavern Saturday night). We can not thank everyone enough for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Might wish to stay away from top floors due to the Stratus roof top lounge.

There is nothing more important to anyone's stay than their comfort. I am thrilled that we were able to deliver that to you in spite of the tumult that occasionally accompanies wedding revelers. Hope to see you again soon.
