A gem of an experience

What a gem! The decor, the atmosphere, the wine gatherings (and Opening Day for the Philadelphia Phillies brought beer, cracker jacks, and soft pretzels as well) were the icing on the cake. The hotel staff was professional and warm ... A special call out to T who found me juggling shopping bags and an umbrella and coffee and rushed over to lend a hand and a smile! The room was spacious with a great view of The Liberty Bell, and had outlets galore. Many thanks for a great visit!

Nice hotel but they forgot to clean our room

Would have loved the hotel. It had a good restaurant. The room was quiet. The bed was comfortable. Shower pressure was great. Free champagne hour. Dog friendly. Great location! However, they definitely didn't clean much, if any, of our room. The sheets looked clean and the bed well made, but the bathroom counter and the inside of the sink itself, had hair and dirt. The night stands also had noticeable crumbs and glass rings. The housekeeping manager apologized and offered us a different room. I chose this hotel because it's supposed to be one of the nicest in Philadelphia, so I was confident that I'd get a clean room. I was disappointed and surprised, and never quiet comfortable after seeing such poor housekeeping.

Hotel Monaco, My Home Away From Home

Each time I stay at this hotel, the experience is always better than the last. Quality, luxury and most important, customer service, makes Hotel Monaco my first choice for getaways when I dont want to travel too far from home. It is indeed my "home away from home"....

Red Owl Tavern is definitely a great spot to dine at. The crabcake appetizer was pleasing to the palate and the Trout w shrimp and lemon aioli was that to be desired...

Great stay for the marathon

The room is clean and very luxurious - modern and cool. The staff... They went Above and beyond. They put out coffe and bagels for the marathon crowd at 3:30 am and made sure everyone had knowledge of how to get to the race course. Convenient location, would stay again

Fun Place to Stay

The hotel has a very fun and interesting decor. Great for a girls night! Perfect location for checking out the sights. Great 5 o'clock wine hour and morning coffee bar. Beautiful hotel and great room service. A little pricey but a great splurge for a special occasion.

Failure to serve

We arrived around 9:30 p.m. and were greeted by a manager, who told us they had overbooked so our reserved room was not available. Their plan: to send us to an airport hotel, no where near where we needed to be. We were given no other options, even though a quick Web search showed other hotels in Philadelphia and NJ with vacancies. This hotel failed on three levels: booking system, service, and plain old intelligence.
