Hotel Review: The Kimpton Monaco Philadelphia

kimpton monaco philadelphiaThe Michael W Travels family recently stayed at the Kimpton Monaco Philadelphia thanks to an IHG Anniversary Free Night.

When we checked in, I gave the Kimpton Social Password. Due to this, we ordered room service at a hotel for the first time ever. We also received a jerky IHG Rewards Club elite benefit.

For those of you curious about the Kimpton Monaco Philadelphia, here’s a photo tour of our stay.a man behind a counter in a storeWe received a warm welcome at the reception area. There was ample seating along with complimentary iced tea and some flavored waters available.

There’s also a nightly wine hour which we did not attend. In the morning, you can come down for complimentary coffee (hot and iced) and tea.

Our room was on the sixth floor. Here is the view when we walked into the room.a room with two beds and a deskOur room had two full beds which were a bit smaller than a queen size.two beds in a roomI have to say that this is one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept on in any hotel. Yes, I got a good nights sleep.

Theo also enjoyed the bed and made himself comfortable right away.a child lying on a bedView from the far side of the room, by the windows.a room with a bed and a deskWe really loved the style of the room.

We really enjoyed the style and comfort the room provided. Due to this, we were in no rush to check out! I’d definitely recommend a stay at this property for your visit to Philly.

The Kimpton Monaco Philadelphia is located at 433 Chestnut Street. It’s across the street from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Penn’s Landing is also a short walk away.

  1. I stayed in a spa room across from Independence Hall and the bathroom was amazing. The fuji soaking tub was the main reason I chose the property. Try it next time.

  2. This is such a great hotel. Try and get a room on the west side of the hotel and you’ll have an amazing and unique view of Independence Hall. They also have a rooftop bar with excellent views of Old City.
