Well, reviews of this hotel are lavish but after staying there, we'd suggest trying the Franklin next door despite the 5 pm wine/beer happy hour. Check in was only after a long wait, with only one staffer, who appeared to be appeasing a family over a problem. We had chosen to spend more to get the upgraded king, and the...

Woolie, Thank you for the feedback and I truly apologize for the inconveniences you had during your stay. We take pride in being the best hotel we can be, especially for our guest; making them feel at home while away from home. Our building is old so some room décor can be a bit challenging. However we will definitely take...

Do Kimpton Hotels really need reviews? The name speaks for itself. I stayed at a Hotel Monaco the first weekend in December. This weekend was a big celebration weekend for me and all I wanted to do was escape from all the festivities and unwind. Due to all the festivities, I forgot just about everything I planned to bring with...

Had a wonderful stay here with my family of four. We had a corner king suite overlooking Independence Hall. The location was great. We were able to easily walk to all the historical locations, as well as the Reading Terminal Market and other good restaurants. The museums were a quick, $7 über ride away. The hotel is very clean and...

great hotel right across the street from the liberty bell and independence hall. Down the street from the Mint and Constitution center.The rooms are great, beds are comfortable , they give you champagne on check in and have coffee and wine in the lobby. The Red Owl restaurant is great for breakfast or dinner and is worth it even if...

We had a great 4 day stay over Thanksgiving with our Australian Sheppard. Kimpton takes dog friendly to another level. The gym and location were also great with some of our favorite restaurants within close walking distance.

Stayed for two nights. My room overlooked Independence Hall and Independence Park. Fabulous location! The hotel decor is hip and funky. Check-in was very busy on early Sunday afternoon, due to lots of people enjoying brunch in the Red Owl Tavern. My room was small, but laid out well and had all of the expected amenities - hair dryer, make-up...

Just had a fun weekend in Philly. Stayed at the Hotel Monaco and could not have been happier with our choice of hotel. From the moment we pulled up in front of the hotel until we, sadly, got in our car to head home we were treated to exceptional service. The hotel and restaurant staffs were outstanding, they made our...

Shawn and his crew greeted us properly at the door and were very efficient, even throughout the trip. Front desk had our reservation perfectly and we were in our room in 10 minutes. The room was clean and well appointed. We especially appreciated the high quality toiletries and enough towels. Room service was excellent and prompt. What's not to like!!

The lobby and our room were very cool -- all sorts of fun colors, patterns, decor. The staff was friendly. We enjoyed the complimentary wine in the lobby in the evening, and the coffee in the morning. Great location -- we walked everywhere.
