The location was great! It was in close proximity to a lot of local attractions, and public transportation was close by (about a block away). The hotel had a great atmosphere and the decor was really fun. They were really great at accommodating me with a cot ($20 or $25) when I needed one for one night. I even requested...

The hotel was fantastic to work with. Everyone was super friendly and accommodating. The food was fabulous and so was the atmosphere. I would highly recommend this hotel for an affair of any sort. Next time I have a special occasion, I will call the Hotel Monaco.

We had our wedding here in August 2015 and were so pleased with everything about Hotel Monaco Philadelphia. Located in the heart of historic Old City, it was the best possible location for our guests to do a little sightseeing on the side and see all Philadelphia has to offer. The food at the hotel (whether from the Red Owl,...

If you are staying in Philadelphia looking to be close to many of the historic sites - this is it! Walking distance to almost everything! As expected, traffic to get there can be a challenge, what with one way streets, etc, but well worth it! We valet parked, and I don't know if there were other reasonable parking options available...

Staff and rooms were great, but the location is amazing! Very stylish theme to the hotel. The bar/restaurant seemed cool, but I didn't get a chance to check it out. Room was cool and comfortable. I upgraded to a room with a view (room 407) and it was worth it to me (may not be for everybody). When you look...

Stayed very comfortably here with family (wife, 2 small kids, 1 big dog). Located across the street from Independence Hall, it is perfectly located for historic walking tours. Room was large and very well outfitted. Great bathroom with big tub. For pet friendly it was upscale and comfortable.

The room was very clean and the tub was amazing. Unfortunately the walls were very thin making it disturbingly noisy. The location was great, but you pay for it in parking. The valet is really slow to get your vehicle when you leave.

“Ask for an Independence Park View and get as high as you can. Try 8th fl. Room 803 or 802.”

“I stayed on the 10th floor right below the rooftop bar. The noise shut down around 1 am, but if that could bother you ask for a lower room.”
