Across the street from the Liberty Bell and Independence Park, the four-star Hotel Monaco Philadelphia comprises 11 floors, with 268 guestrooms including 17 suites and 27 King Spa rooms. With 13,000 square feet of meeting space and a 3,300 square foot stunning ballroom, groups and event planners will have plenty of options to create the most inspiring events. Street-side dining at the Red Owl Tavern and the city’s only rooftop lounge, Stratus, offers a departure from the daily routine to sit back and relax. Conveniently located a five minute drive from the city’s business and financial district, Hotel Monaco is close enough to the hustle and bustle but enough removed to feel like a retreat.
“The Hotel Monaco Philadelphia is a game changer for the city and for Kimpton,” said Nick Gregory, General Manager, Hotel Monaco Philadelphia. “The neighbourhood welcomed Kimpton with open arms with our first Philadelphia hotel, the Hotel Palomar, and we’re thrilled to introduce more family members here with a new unique boutique hotel that has the city’s only true rooftop lounge, top-notch chef-driven dining and catering, and unmatched programmes and services. This all chalks up to what we envision as an enriching and captivating Philadelphia experience.”
Each and every stay at the Hotel Monaco Philadelphia offers the same level of warm, welcoming hospitality, but, with a stream of over-the-top amenities, no one stay is the same as the last or the next. Kimpton pampers not only its InTouch Members, but all guests (those of the two- and four-legged kind) and offers a number of perks and services like complimentary Wi-Fi, nightly manager-hosted wine hour in the living room, and on-site fitness centre. For adventure-seeking guests, the hotel provides bicycles to scout the neighborhood, and, paying homage to its historic location; kites are available in every guest room for complimentary use in Ben Franklin’s backyard, brass keys not included.
To top it off, the hotel is within walking distance to some of the city’s hottest boutique shops, theatres, restaurants, and art galleries encouraging exploration and discovery not just within the hotel, but all around it. This adaptive reuse project of the Lafayette Building, which upheld its historical significance in the early 1900s, will transform the northeast corner of 5th and Chestnut Streets into a locally-loved and traveller sought-out hospitality and entertainment destination.
