Awesome hotel convenient to old city. Fantastic staff Great experience

Great hotel in great location, but they don't tell you about the fifty dollar parking fee!!!!

Best hotel ever... Great staff especially Ricky... Great service, have never been treated so well by any hotel. Can't wait to go back.

Freindly staff, great service and steps to historic sites.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Kimpton Monaco. The location is perfect. Very close to Indepence Hall and other major attractions and great restaurants. I don't love their "dog friendly" policy. However, our room was clean. The valet parking is very slow. If you can park somewhere else, do so.

Amazing customer service. Glass of wine at check-in was a stress relief. Lovely surroundings. Modern decor with ambiance.

Fabulous, modern hotel with many amenities. Loved the decor. Loved the wine happy hour (Shirley temples for the kids). Across the street from Independence Hall and Liberty Bell. Many cool restaurants within walking distance.

Staff is helpful. The decor is wonderful.... really great long weekend.

High end dog welcoming hotel in the city. Great central location to all the sites.

Wonderful staff and super cool hotel! Wonderful for family or for business. I loved the art deco design and the location was superb!

This was my first time in a Kimpton hotel, expectations were exceeded. The room was perfect. AC was ice cold which was a welcome relief as it was about 90 degrees outside and probably 90% humidity outside. The room wasn't huge, but it was well laid out. Furnishings were nice. Was able to check in at 2pm with no issues. Your mileage may vary. One amazing thing that has never happened before for me in any hotel was that for the entire night from 1AM - 8AM I did not hear one noise at all. It was dead silence. I am a very light sleeper myself and I get annoyed to hear door slammings, ice makers, people talking in the hallways, etc. So for whatever reason, not sure if it was pure luck or what, I didn't hear any cars, planes, people or anything. My room was an interior room and didn't have much of a view except the other rooms windows. I am certainly looking forward to my next stay at a Kimpton.

Loved this hotel especially our room. It had a modern, elegant but with a few quirky fun surprises. They thought of everything to make your stay comfy. Highly recommend the bar next store too.

Hotel staff are great! Especially, the people near the registration (registration people were helpful too) and at the door. A shout out to the tall guy with beard (Forgot to get his name)! Our kids liked him with his help with the bikes!

Great location and cool feel as well as nice staff

Hotel overall was excellent. Notes for improvement. Detail cleaning was a little low in that there were stains on the dusted ruffle and on the cylindrical pillow on the bed. There where dirty marks on the outside door frame in the hall way. Probably something only I would notice. Water pressure in the shower was just ok. Bed was very cozy. Resturant down stair was top notch. For breakfast and dinner. The raw juice at the breakfast was awesome. Location was great parking garage on behind the Franklin next door is cheap.

Everything was nice but I wish they had had a coffee pot in the room.

It's a good hotel, average only, with $46 parking fee - valet only - unless you park elsewhere, $25 each time you enter/leave. No breakfast is included. The rooftop bar is nice. No Keurig in room. The only available coffee and hot chocolate are in the lobby, served in the morning. Not bad, but I would stay elsewhere next time.

I love this hotel. It has a very convenient location, wonderful decor and lobby, extremely efficient and friendly staff, useful amenities, and beautiful/ modern/large rooms with a view. You really get a sense of the unique location in Philadelphia as well as the modern style you expect from a Kimpton Hotel. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Nice hotel with great location. Room was smaller than expected and some of the bathroom fixtures were a little rusty. Great overall but seemed a little overpriced.

My friend and I decided to visit Philadelphia for Christmas. This place has it all: great location, amazing amenities, and one of the best values of any hotel. Next to independence hall and the visitor center. Restaurants are just two blocks away. And don't forget the wine happy hour EVERY day from 5-6, great way to end a day in the city. Beds are super comfy. Everything about this hotel is excellent and the rates were reasonable. In a big city with many great hotel choices, you should definitely give the Kimpton Monaco a try.

Bob! Thank you so much for the feedback and the awesome title. I will follow up with our Valet team to ensure they are telling every single guest upon checkin. The valet fee is displayed on our website and is definitely not meant to be kept in secrecy. I hope that business or pleasure brings you back to the Old City sector to have some more fun with us one day.

Mari! Very awesome to hear that you overall enjoyed your stay. We do have a couple of pet free floors that we can put you on so you do not hear our little furry friends bark and meow during your stay. Hopefully we can have you back again sooner than later. That's always great stuff to do here!
