Hotel Details


The hotel has a medium lobby.


From the outside, we're an Empire- and Greek Revival-style gem- a picture of classic grandeur. Inside, we pour on contemporary comforts, including plush guest rooms adorned with white tufted leather fixtures and suites with Japanese soaking tubs, and a sweeping living room lobby where complimentary wine is offered every evening. We're big on preserving the building's historic integrity, from the original marble elevator banks up to the coffered ceiling.


To honor our storied architecture and the neighborhood's rich past, we've seasoned our guest rooms with early-period design accents, like spacious marble desks with carved column bases, and massive mirrored end tables. But the decor is not all pomp and circumstance. We like to have fun, too, and our playful side unfolds in plucky details like gold-and-blue wallpaper with bold, geometric patterns.


You don't have to go far for a delicious, honest meal. Red Owl Tavern adjoins our hotel at one of the most animated corners of historic Philadelphia and peppers your stay with seasonal, local ingredients. It's a spot the entire neighborhood takes note of for its welcoming outdoor wraparound café and warm, polished service. That's not to mention our rooftop lounge, Stratus, which overlooks Independence National Historic Park. We promise that, as night draws near, the lounge becomes more animated than a firecracker on the Fourth of July. We'd even venture to say it's the place to be in Philly.

Best location but didn't meet expectation for kid services

This hotel was very nice. definitely a 4 star in many ways especially the location which is perfect if you want to see the sights around the liberty bell and independence hall. you are literally across the street.
the service was very good, but kimpton advertised a number of amenities for kids that turned out not to be available during our visit which was very disappointing:
- no gift for kids provided
- no fish friend as advertised by saying 'guppy love'
- no robe his size
- no kids treats on friday during wine hour. only offered on saturday during our stay which was ridiculous to provide wine and seafood item for adults and nothing for the kids to eat.
the decor of the hotel was charming, but the room was very small. i think i over paid since i booked a room a week prior to my stay and the rooms were almost gone.
other than the false advertising for kids, we had a good stay and would recommend this hotel due to its charm and location.

Fancy place

I checked in at 230 and checked out at 630. wish i could stay longer. very, very professional staff. it's not the newest or trendiest. i would mostly say this is a place for the business traveler.

Great stay in a beautiful hotel!

Our room was beautiful - nice decorations and very comfortable. we enjoyed the wine hour in the lobby, as well as the lovely roofdeck. the neighborhood around the hotel is lovely for walking.

What a happy & delightful hotel

after booking a king size room with hotelsclick, and reading advice on line, we phoned the hotel to arrange for a park view room. i was told that because we usied a "third party", requests might not be possible. however, a day or two later, we received a phone call from the hotel telling us that they had indeed upgraded our room to a park view and that it would be gratis!
this hotel is just one year old. its spirit and friendliness abound. from the moment we arrived, the staff was happy to make our stay wonderful. we drove up to the front of the hotel, and were instantly, and delightfully greeted by brad who made parking arrangements for our car, took our bags, and escorted us to the front desk.
rob w., the guest service, surprised us with two tickets for complimentary breakfast at the red owl tavern, located inside the hotel. this breakfast was not a small continental one. it was a complete one, of our choice, made to order by their chefs, with juice and coffee included.
the hotel monaco is decorated with a flare of creating delightful visual effects. our accommodations were small but luxurious, modern, tasteful, and eclectic. amenities abounded with a large walk-in shower, elegant toiletries and bathrobes. our room faced the park with a view of the liberty bell, and independence hall, plus the location was perfect, in walking distance to museums, restaurants, and horse carriage rides. the hotel has a complimentary 5pm wine hour and offers a rooftop lounge that is a special attraction.
it was my husband’s birthday, and to his delight and utter surprise, rob w., at the guest service took note of this and had wine, a slice of decadent chocolate cake, and fruits, placed in our room, along with a hand written happy birthday card from rob! what a thoughtful surprise! nothing could have made his birthday happier. what thoughtful management!
the service, the atmosphere, the location of hotel monaco and especially the staff, made this trip memorable and wonderful. we cannot wait to return again.
