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...

Oh, you'll love this place! Colorful, unique decor, fun additional amenities including chess in the lobby, bicycles for local use on the Philly streets and a staff that goes above and beyond to make you feel extra special. Everyone on the staff says hello, converses with you and has a great smile! Love the option to go green and skip...

What a truly refreshing and relaxing hotel. Located in the quiet streets of Liberty Park, this hotel is perfectly located for families who want to be near the history of Old City, or couples who want to get away. The decor is amazing. It's like staying at the home of a friend who has travelled the world and brought back...

This hotel is one of the more interestingly decorated properties I've stayed in. Everything was super trippy but tastefully decorated, and one could argue chicness even. On the weekend there is a club on the roof, but we weren't bothered by any noise. There were quite a few club patrons on the elevators, but it wasn't an issue. Staff were...

Just spent one night - room was ok. The bathroom door, a pocket door, barely opened and closed and someone set an alarm for 5am. Just checked out and mentioned both to the front desk. Sha, who checked us out, had literally no reaction at all. No apology for the inconvenience, not even an acknowledged. I won't come back. That...

Allison, I'm terribly sorry to hear we dropped the ball during your stay. It is definitely not standard for an alarm to be preset or not checked by our housekeeping team prior to your arrival. Many apologies on behalf of Sha and our team that you didn't have the mindblowing experience that you deserved. I hope that one day we...

Beautiful rooms and hotel. Superb service; Sha at the Front Desk & Roshid the Concierge were very accommodating and made me feel that the quality of my experience was important to them. Perfect location for walking around Center City. This is our 2nd time staying here and it was one of the reasons that I came back to Philadelphia. The...

The hotel is right next to the historic sights. I liked the bold, eclectic design scheme of the common areas and rooms. The room was a little small, but adequate for a short stay. Beds were comfortable. The wine hour was great and family-friendly (Shirley temples for the kids). Park around the corner at Bourse parking garage, which costs $30...
