The hotel is proximate to federal buildings (court, IRS, etc.) The restaurant had a nice menu with well prepared entrees. Got finished late one night and had to use room service since the restaurant kitchen closes at 10:00. The service was about 45 minutes and the sandwich and fries were well prepared. The room service menu is a little narrow...

I am very surprised by how disappointed I am since other reviews are so glowing. When I arrived they upgraded me to a park view and a bathtub. This bathtub is literally a normal apartment bathtub and nothing special. The remote had some sort of cream on it which was disgusting. No water was provided which is a no-no in...

I stayed here for two nights for a friend's wedding a few weekends ago. I found this hotel to be overpriced, considering my experience. Where to begin? We had to call down to the front desk to receive a key for our mini-bar. Why should we even have to obtain a key? If a 80% markup isn't enough to dissuade...

The staff were absolutely tremendous as I messed up my booking. Hotel room was right next to Liberty hall. The hotel was great, the food nice and the staff were top notch. Loved my stay and my wife and I would go again. Would recommend it to anyone.

I had a wonderful stay here at the hotel for St. Patrick's Day. A special shout out to Roshid the concierge for making us feel so welcome and for the champagne. Also Alex the front desk agent and Rob the bellman. You have a wonderful team of employees here that make your stay one of a kind.

My husband and I went for my birthday weekend. The hotel is in a great location. Our room had views of independence hall. We enjoyed the first night so much we decided to stay and extra night and the staff was able to keep us in our upgraded room. Rooms are very stylish.

Took advantage of a great rate offer to stay in Philadelphia during the Philadelphia Flower Show. Friendly, efficient check-in. Lovely, decent sized room with a large bathroom and shower, king bed, dresser, and desk (which so many small hotels are missing these days!). Took advantage of afternoon free wine. Worth becoming a member of Kimpton Karma rewards for the "raid...

We have stayed several times at the sister property in Philly, but decided to give the Monaco a try. I am so glad we did! The location was fantastic-convenient to all of the Old City sights, yet very quiet. We were still just a little over a mile from Center City, which was an easy walk. The hotel itself was...

My group had a great time here. There is a cozy lounge near reception and the rooms were clean and well kept. It was nice to have a great bar on the rooftop, Its surely at its best during beautiful weather. Service in the hotel was great all around. Recommend highly.
