I stayed here overnight as I was speaking at a conference/festival and the organizers had us stay here. Note that our stay was comped but I have stayed at a number of Kimptons and love that they have a tea bar in the mornings, a wine bar in the evening for complementary wine and access to yoga mats for your...

I am not a millennial and perhaps these rooms appeal to that generation. My sister and I are in the 50 -60 age range and found the decor of these rooms to fit my title. There were two competing wallpapers, both oversized for the scale of the room. The carpet looked like it belonged in a ballroom not a regular...

j0anjr - Thank you for the feedback! I do hope you had an overall enjoyable stay with us. I do apologize that our style wasn't what you were looking for. We do however, have a sister property the Hotel Palomar in Philadelphia that does have a different style to it. I do hope you come back and visit us again!

We stayed at the Hotel Monaco for a wedding recently and very much enjoyed our stay. It’s a typical Kimpton hotel, with relatively quirky décor (our room was Alice in Wonderland themed) and friendly service. Plus you can’t really go wrong with the daily wine hour in the lobby. From check in to check out all of the staff was...

I just stayed at this Hotel 4 nights ago and let me tell you that the service was never better for me ever before.

They canceled our reservation the same day of our arrival!!!! We had a reservation for a room with a king size bed; I called the hotel 3 days before to confirm my reservation - it was already confirmed by Booking.com; the concierge said that everything was set. I had to remain in NY and my husband traveled alone to Philly;...

We arrived before rush hour to check in and dress for a wedding. The hotel is located near the corner so we had to wait for the valets to jockey cars and clear a spot for us to pull in. There were only two clerks running check-in and the process was slow. Then the key to our room did not...

My kids loved this fun hotel located in downtown Philly across from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Excellent restaurant in the hotel had wonderful food. Beautiful roof deck bar. Perfect location for sightseeing and exploring the city on foot. Hotel is eclectic and very clean. My first time at a Kimpton Hotel and I will stay there again!

First off I am super picky! This place is great. Great ambiance. Great staff. Great location near everything really in central Philadelphia. I was pleasantly surprised that despite other reviews, I really liked the food. Super hipster restaurant with fun food. I will definitely be back.

I love Kimpton Hotels – wine hours, pet friendly, normally great locations within big cities. When I decided to visit Philly, Hotel Monaco was my first stop. Travelling as a family of five is difficult because most hotels only allow 4 to a room which means we have to “sneak” a kid in or get two rooms. This hotel provide...
