Close to perfect

Very pricey by my standards, but not in comparison to other hotels of comparable downtown location... See full review

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.

Best area to stay!

The hotel was amazing. The staff was always there to help with the bags or anything we needed. It was right in the heart of the historical district. The only think that would of made it more enjoyable would be a coffee pot in the room. The room had everything from fuzzy socks, robes, free use umbrella to pure luxury but no coffee. It was free if you went down to the lobby. I would recommend this hotel to all.

Mini-Vaca

Fantastic experience! The hotel is in a great location to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall- right across the street- just steps away. The staff is outstanding- very helpful and nice and there is always fresh fruit water available in the lobbey. The rooms were extremely clean and very well decorated- we'd love to interior decorate our own home the way their hotel is decorated. We loved our stay and can't wait to stay there again if we should ever visit Philly. Lastly, we loved that they were dog friendly- made our mini-vaca just perfect!

Business Traveler with Family

This hotel was convenient to the historical sites of Philadelphia. It was also within walking distance of the convention center to make this a good blend of taking the family on a business trip and providing activities for the kids throughout the day while I am at work.
