Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia

Philadelphia, USA

The hotel

Nestled in the iconic Lafayette Building, an architectural landmark built in 1907, the Hotel Monaco Philadelphia offers luxurious accommodation close to all attractions. It’s also one of the few hotels in Philly to feature a rooftop lounge – located on the 11th floor, it’s a great place to relax with a few drinks, admiring the views as the sun sets on another day. The Red Owl Tavern is also a popular spot for guests and locals alike, serving hearty meals in a warm and friendly atmosphere. If you’re keen to keep trim, there’s a fitness centre on-site. Alternatively, bikes are available for complimentary rental on a first come first served basis – an excellent way to get around, make sure you bag yourself a two-wheeler at some point during your stay. Every evening, the hotel hosts a complimentary wine hour in the lobby lounge – not just a great way to meet and mingle with fellow guests, it’s also handy for picking up tips on sights to see off the beaten track and places to eat!

The staff at this hotel were totally inappropriate and rude, in particular to my disabled and elderly mother. The front desk staff were the worst by far, totally disrespectful and nearly caused us to miss the event that we were attending.

The staff at this hotel were totally inappropriate and rude, in particular to my disabled and elderly mother. The front desk staff were the worst by far, totally disrespectful and nearly caused us to miss the event that we were attending. After giving us a room overlooking an air shaft, we had to beg the cleaning staff to let us in the room because the front desk did not give us valid key cards. This hotel puts no priority on hospitality, and the front desk staff should be required to take a sensitivity training to learn how to treat disabled guests. Read less

The hotel was excellent. If you’re visiting Philadelphia fo see historic sites, it cannot be beat since most are within a 10 minute walk. The staff is friendly and helpful. We’ll be back, wherever in Philadelphia we plan to visit.

Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia is a fun and fabulous boutique hotel. Great location. Loved the lobby happy hour with wine and hot apple cider (spiked or without alcohol). It was a great experience for the whole family. What made the stay fabulous was the staff. Incredibly welcoming and considerate. Helped us with dinner suggestions and then followed up to see how our experience was. The concierge, Rashid, heard that my son liked super heroes and showered him with games and toys to keep him busy. Best hotel experience we have had and we’ve traveled to 5 star hotels around the world. Read less

I had a beautiful experience. My concierge was a very nice gentlemen Rashid Miledge. Very knowledge about the city and just a good spirited gentlemen. A person like him just brightens your day regardless what you may experience. You guys have a gem in him at Monaco.

My husband and I live an hour from the city so we just wanted a clean hotel that offered a restful morning sleep. 😂 We checked in very fast and ran back out the door. We did not return until 2am after partying. Staff was very professional and kind. Such an artistic hotel. We will stay again and enjoy some amenities.
