Overview

The Monaco Philadelphia a Kimpton Hotel occupies the Lafayette Building, which was constructed in the early 20th century. The facade of this historic property is a prime example of Empire architecture. Hints of Greek revival styling are also visible on the exterior. Button-tufted headboards, fleur-de-lis logos on furniture and etching-style art emphasize the European splendor in each guest room. For business travelers, 13,000 square feet of space is dedicated to hosting conferences and special events.

Highlights

Key facts

Overlooking Independence National Historical Park, the Monaco Philadelphia a Kimpton Hotel is steps away from the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and National Constitution Center. In addition to being near some of the most important landmarks in the United States, this boutique hotel is surrounded by other cultural attractions such as the National Museum of American Jewish History and Betsy Ross House.

When you're ready to exercise, grab a bike from the hotel's lobby and ride around the Old City. There's also an on-site fitness studio that's open 24 hours. A day of sightseeing in "The City of Brotherly Love" could end with a relaxing massage in your room. The skilled massage therapists use Kerstin Florian ingredients to pamper your body. To get an authentic taste of Philadelphia's cuisine, try the dishes at the Red Owl Tavern. Al fresco dining is available at the Stratus Rooftop Lounge.

Perfect location for historic sightseeing

Would recommend Tue, Dec 8, 2015
Helpful friendly staff always willing to do whatever they could. Nobody ever acted as if that's not my job. Perfect location to step right out the door and step into the historical sights of Philly. Yummy food venues very close to walk to. Very safe day and night. Rooms, fitness center, lobby, everything comfortable and pampering after lots of walking. Would come back without any hesitation!

Great Customer Service but...

Would recommend Sat, Nov 14, 2015
I only stayed for 1 night. The front desk employees were PHENOMENAL however my room was extremely dusty. The room looked like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks. Dust on window sills, beds, desk, and end tables. Room service did eventually come to dust but they only spent 45 seconds doing it. I ended up doing it myself. I also had to request a room service menu and had to call down to the front desk twice for it. If you ever have stayed here you know that they give you a book to read (Alice in wonderland). There was no book in my room. I had to call down to the front desk again to make sure I wouldn't be charged for it in case they thought I took it home. The charge would of been $35. Seems more like a house cleaning issue. Everything else was great minus the filthy room. Even the bartenders at Red Owl and the roof top bar went out of their way to make everyone happy!
