Probably one of the nicest hotels to stay in Philadelphia. The staff are wonderful, pleasant and very helpful. Free bar between 5-6pm and decor is eye catching. I would also recommend to do the rocky tour with YO Phili tours, it's amazing and if you have time please get a chance to book a table at Victors cafe.. This place...

This was our first experience at a Kimpron Hotel, and it was perfect. We chose this hotel in order to be close to the many attractions at Independence Mall, and it was a great choice. The rooms are beautifully appointed, and the attentiveness of the staff was first class. We particularly enjoyed the daily afternoon cocktail reception, where you could...

Honestly, I'd live here if I could. It's incredibly stylish and charmingly eccentric in design. Very modern, too.I stayed at one of their enormous one bedroom suites for a few days for my birthday. My boyfriend had concierge surprised me with DELICIOUS red velvet cupcakes with chocolate filling waiting for me in the suite as well as a bottle of...

Have stayed here twice now. Once took train from Manhattan to Downtown Philly and then took subway right to hotel. Easy check in. Very modern. Nice evening wine reception. Rooms are modern chic and have fun animal print bathrobes. Also room the essential power outlets everywhere to charge devices. Highly recommend this hotel. Right by Independence Hall.

I stayed for two nights this past weekend. We never had any service from the cleaning staff the whole time we were there. We were out of our hotel room for 7 hours one day! I ran into a maid in the hall and got some fresh towels, but for the cost of the room the services were very minimal....

This has been our 3rd stay at the Kimpton Monaco. Excellent service and atmosphere in this uniquely decorated hotel in the heart of Old City. Steps from great restaurants and Constitution Center, Liberty Bell etc!

Great location near center city, we loved the Corner King Spa room. Highly recommend signing up for Kimpton rewards, as they have great member specials. With that said, if you're a Karma member, you receive $10 towards the mini bar each stay--if you can find something under $10 :) The only issue we had with the hotel was an unannounced...
