I have had the pleasure of staying here twice, for two different business meetings. When I got the invite for the second meeting I was very much hoping it was going to be at Hotel Monaco again because I liked it so much the first time! The decor is just amazing and my room was so quiet and cozy. There...

I was in town for a business meeting. I didn't arrive until 10 PM. As a woman traveling alone I felt safe and welcomed as soon as I arrived at the hotel. The folks at the desk were helpful and wanted to ensure my comfort. The room was clean and cheerful. I was able to regulate the room temperature (...

I stayed at the Hotel Monaco during Winter Storm Jonas. I arrived 30 hours before the storm. I was initially put off by the fact that there were so many doormen and valets milling around when I drove up and no one offered to assist my luggage. I had to finally ask one of them to valet my car and...

I try to stay at Hotel Monaco or Palomar whenever my travels take me to Philadelphia. From the bell hops, to registration to housekeeping - everyone on their staff is always pleasant and accommodating. The complimentary happy hour is a nice touch as is the yoga mats in each room... The rooms are always clean, comfortable and stylish.

Stayed for 2 nights. Central to the historical areas with the liberty bell and independence hall right across the street. Walking distance to many restaurants and the waterfront and also city transit. Hotel has nice perks and amenities. Friendly staff and parking garages around the corner. Clean quiet rooms

The Monaco is a little quirky and a little funky but it is an excellent hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful and make you feel welcome at all times. The rooms are modern. Our room faced the Independence Park which gave us a great view and plenty of light. The bed was comfortable with nice linens. The bathroom...
