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!

Although I ended up getting sick and missing the event, everyone who went thought it was fantastic! The food and service were outstanding and the team at Monaco was great to work with. Would have another event there for sure!

In the middle of everything you want to see and around the corner from Farmicia restaurant which is the best. But the shining light is Rashid! Read less

Roshid was very helpful and professional arranging a birthday surprise to be delivered to her room. He also referred me to a local florist who arranged for flowers to her room. I appreciate his help and advice.

Literally across the street from independence hall and the liberty bell! Surrounded by parks which was perfect for walking the dog. They had a dog bed and dishes in the room upon our arrival. Staff was very wand professional. Coffee in the morning was wonderful!

If you want to see the historic sites , this hotel is an absolute must. Being able to use your bikes free of charge was a nice touch . One issue that kept this from being a 5 star were the doormen. They didn’t even bother to say hello to us or even open the door. I am hoping that Maybe these were the valet guys and they were just doing their “valet” jobs , but it was hard to tell, they stood there talking to each other while we maneuvered the bikes out of the rather heavy front door.
