Haven't stayed yet, but called ahead to advise of a special occasion for an upcoming stay. The concierge - Rashid is AMAZING. So thoughtful, hones and knowledgeable. Cant wait to stay here is he is any indication of the level of service and employees.

My son-in-law surprised my daughter, my wife and I with a couples retreat at the Hotel Monaco. From the valet parking, to the front desk, to the ambience in our rooms, I can only think of one word: STELLAR!!!! Room was funky (in a good way) and modern! Great location near the birthplace of America. Within walking distance to neat...

Excellent service and beautiful hotel. We enjoyed the events they held in the lobby (lived the hot toddy) and even had the chance to get a quick meal from the food truck they brought in. Hotel is close by with historical landmarks.

I visited with my four grandchildren, ages 6-13. I requested (and got) two large adjoining rooms overlooking Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell park. The rooms were lovely, but the best thing about this place is the staff. Incredibly accommodating and helpful and made us feel very welcome.

My daughter and I spent 2 nights here over the Fourth of July holiday. We have stayed in numerous Kimpton Hotels and have found the majority to be extremely attractive, spacious (compared to most city hotel rooms) and very accommodating.

Stayed here for business. I loved the room. A nearby business had their alarm going off all night. I called down and the manger let me know that it had been addressed. The next morning they apologized about the night before and had the manager come out and address their efforts. Additionally the roof top bar was amazing. I'd definitely...

LaNeicia - Thank you for the awesome review and thank you for acknowledging our efforts with the alarm from the nearby business. It is so hard when it was out of our control, but still upsetting because it disturbed our guests. I appreciate your kind words and we hope to see you again for business or pleasure!

We had no idea how cool this place was until we got there AND THEN.....they offer free wine or beer in the lobby to guests from 5-6. Great staff with a funky, hip decor, and it's all right next to Independence Hall.

This Kimpton property is lovely and worth a stay. Though I'd probably give it four stars compared to some of the other Kimpton properties I've visited. The staff at this hotel just wasn't as friendly as at other properties and the bellmen were generally more interested in looking at their phones than in helping guests. (There was one exception, though...

I thought the ambience was a bit weird, however the staff was great, it has a good little restaurant associated with it, and we had a pleasant stay right in the heart of downtown within walking distance of most e very thing you'd want to see it do.
