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 hotel is lovely, well-located, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Hey Kimpton management, your people are doing something right. Read less

As much as I hate to leave NYC, when I have to travel to Philly for work, it's my home away from home. From the welcome texts from the staff to their greeting, to taking care of every detail, the beautiful rooms,immaculate and gorgeous decor and a bed you sink into, it's such a treat. So many great people, Emily, Roshid, Tiffany, Nina, Abigail,… Read more

I’ve stayed at this hotel a lot for business and I absolutely love it. It has a warm, welcoming atmosphere and lively happy hour every night. It’s close to great restaurants and Independence Hall. I love it!

We stopped in Philly for one night on our way home for Thanksgiving. The hotel had the usual funky charm of the Kimpton chain. Our room was surprisingly large and nicely appointed. The bed was very comfy and the breakfast in the tavern off the lobby was great. What really set this hotel apart was the service. From the moment we walked into the lobby until the valet handed us our car keys, everyone went out of their way to make sure we had a good experience. We travel a lot and sadly good service is no longer something you can count on. However at the Hotel Monaco everyone had a smile and helpful suggestion. Everyone was knowledgeable about their specific job and the hotel in general. It made us want to come back and make this an annual stop. Read less

We truly enjoyed our stay, the rooftop lounge was a great surprise and unique experience in November. Staff was friendly and helpful!! We would definitely come back and stay again in the summer. Hotel is close to so many attractions it was hard to fit everything into our weekend.
