Pros: location, cleanliness, style of the rooms, etc.
Location: across the street from Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, and within walking distance of great shops and restaurants in Society Hill, Old City, South St
loved the location, within walking distance of all of the historic sights. The room was clean, bed was really comfortable, and décor was unique! Staff was friendly and helpful. Next time I am in Philadelphia, I will be staying at this hotel.

Jeff! We already can't wait to have you back at the Monaco. The location is definitely fun and there's always something to do. Old City Fests just happened and 2 weeks ago there was an Opera in Independence Hall right next to us. Let us know when you are coming back.

Center of all things historic in Philly

Posted Sep 30, 2017
Location: Literally, a stones throw from the liberty bell, Franklin Museum (which is NOT the Franklin Institute), the unique Liberty Museum.
From check in to check out, this hotel offered perfection. Gorgeous lobby, well appointed, funky rooms, close to history, but surprisingly sound-proof. The entire staff were amazing, helpful, and friendly. The Red Owl restaurant on the property offered the traditional, yet unique dishes for every meal and taste. In all, a highly recommended experience!

Perfection!? Wow. Thank you for your awesome review. It's amazing to hear that you had a great time while hanging out in Old City with us. It sounds like you have every reason to come back and see more of our City. Also, next time you are in Red Owl Tavern make sure you check out the Calamari!

Quality Service and Comfort

Posted Sep 12, 2017
We were greeted with a smile the minute we got to the Kimpon Hotel Monaco. Check in was quick and our room was very nice and colorful and clean. This was a different location in Philly from where I normally stay and will want to stay here again. If anyone is visiting Philly for the first time, this hotel is a must.
