Enjoyed a 2 night stay at a very nice location. We had a Deluxe King room, very comfortable, but the view was...well... horrible. It was very dark in the room, and when we peered out the window, we saw other windows looking back...not very private, and again, very dark. Felt like being in a chimney. Guest services were helpful, and...

This hotel lived up to expectations. Lovely decor throughout, large rooms, friendly staff. Perfect location for sightseeing Philadelphia with the liberty bell being on the doorstep. Free wine 5/6pm daily which is standard at all Kimpton hotels. A great little treat. We used the restaurant for breakfast and was pleased with the service. Would definitely recommend. You won't be disappointed....

I had an amazing stay at Hotel Monaco, while there celebrating my 25th birthday...from the time I stepped in the door...from being greeted by the bellman, to the beautifully designed lobby, which looks more like an art exhibit with eclectic furnishing, I was in awe. I was then greeted with champagne while I checked in, which was a fabulous touch...The...

What a great location cross from the park and Liberty Hall! If you are lucky enough to get a corner room you have a splendid view of Liberty hall and can enjoy the sunset. The decor of the hotel is in line with the Kimpton tradition, "elegantly quirky" is how I best sum things up, the bar is excellent and...

Excellent location near restaurants, historical sights, parks and shopping. Can't find a better location. This is a great hotel with neat clean rooms and modern decor. Good food and drinks in a very pleasant atmosphere. Parking, like in most large cities, is expensive but the stay is a good value overall.

From the moment the entrance to the hotel was opened for us, we were treated as if we were royalty. The front desk staff was friendly and courteous. The hotel is uniquely decorated. HH had a nice selection of wines. A table was set up for children (adults) with 4th of July treats. The hotel is dog friendly and I...

Martha P - It sounds like you were able to enjoy almost every aspect of our hotel. I am glad you enjoyed our 4th of July treats (candy isn't just for children), and had such a great stay that you extended three more nights! We look forward to seeing you again soon on another extended stay!

I've been travelling to Philadelphia for years and this may be my new favorite hotel in the city. The hotel is uniquely decorated and has a top notch staff. I had a room with two beds and it is quite large with extremely high ceilings and tall windows overlooking the street. Large well equipped bathroom and very comfortable beds. Would...

Took my girlfriend here for a romantic getaway, and we both loved it. Had everything we wanted and more. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Restaurant on site had some of the best food in the city. Would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone.
