Great location, high quality

This hotel has a great location, next to Independence Hall. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The rooms are very nice and have been recently remodeled. The rooftop bar is not to be missed. It is a little pricey, but a very nice hotel.

Short and sweet

Only on a one night stopover but it was a good experience. The hotel had only been open a week so everything was fresh and new. The bed was extremely comfortable and shower etc worked well. The decor was not my taste and combination of some colours was mind bogling! The hotel is in a very good location and we had a lovely view of the liberty bell from our room. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.

I am a loyal Kimpton Hotel brand fan. I love the hotel's for their cutting edge design and comfortable rooms. If you are a member wi-fi is free and you get a $10 bar credit. Love that! I am disapointed with their customer service. The last few visits I have not been impressed. I am quite tolerable but I felt for the price point of the Monaco in Philly (really) should have come with superior customer service and sadly it did not.
