My daughter gave us a 2 night stay here as a Christmas present. The staff is very attentive the decor is charmingly eclectic and kind of art deco. At first i thought it might be a very hipstery place but the atmosphere is warm and friendly while we were here I saw a mix of seniors and young adults. It...

My husband and I are one night into our three-night stay here, and I couldn't wait to write my review. We have stayed in some really nice hotels around the world and this one is my favorite. I just can't say enough about it. The decor is fun and interesting, and pretty contemporary, but still manages to be elegant. Our...

I stayed at hotel Monaco for a quick business trip. It's a very cute hotel and I was impressed with the decor...location was good, but that's about where it ends. My major issue with them was service. First, how come there is no toothpaste/ toothbrush? I mean the $40/ night hotel in China had it as standard. Monaco says toothpaste...

If my name was Alice...I would have been in Wonderland. This hotel was great, with a beer/wine social in the afternoon, and a full size tub in the room and a wonderland themed room...it was a great weekend getaway...it was right across the street from the Liberty Bell...exactly where we wanted to be

We just stayed at Hotel Monaco for 3 nights and were extremely pleased! The staff are very attentive and friendly, from the bellman who remembered us each time we came and went, to the front desk staff who always looked up and greeted us when we entered the lobby, to every other employee we came in contact with. The hotel...

This is a wonderful hotel, our room was so quirky and elegant at the same time- wonderful staff (said I would give George a shout-out)! They always had water on hand downstairs that had fruit infused in it... afternoon wine downstairs. Just was so comfortable and happy there!

Had a fabulous experience planning and hosting a two-day meeting at the Hotel Monaco—on the pricey side, but we absolutely got what we paid for. The events staff was really responsive and easy to work with ahead of the meeting, and persevered through our nitpicky logistical requests! The catering staff was incredibly attentive and welcoming throughout our stay, and the...

This hotel is beautiful and treats guests well. I didn't love that the doormen were on their phones a lot and I almost had to awkwardly open the door myself a few times. The restaurant is not great and the service there was bad both for dinner and breakfast. The hotel itself is in a great location. The parking is...

I don't have a single complaint about this gleaming, friendly, quirky, clean, elegant, quiet hotel. It exceeded all of my expectations, and I travel a LOT between work and pleasure. It has a really interesting and unique decor, style, and look -- this can often become kitschy and worn if not maintained. Not so with the Hotel Monaco -- the...

My family enjoyed two nights in a corner king suite (Room 416) this weekend on a tourist trip to Philadelphia. Cannot beat the location for colonial/Revolutionary history sites (across the street from Indy Hall, L. Bell, Constitution Center). Also, home base for the Big Bus tour (part of the CityPass package) is a block away. A few blocks to Ben...
