Philadelphia, Pennsylvania—reported by Coleman Bentley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has brought its newest boutique hotel to life with contemporary design, a rich cultural setting, and the brotherly love of a city know for happily dolling out exactly that. Situated in historic Philadelphia, just across the street from the Liberty Bell, the Hotel Monaco Philadelphia is sure to be ringing with modern amenities and classic American atmosphere when it opens this October.
Climbing from the outskirts of Independence Park the Hotel Monaco Philadelphia repurposes 11 stories of historic Lafayette Building, filling them with 268 guestrooms, 17 suites, and 27 King Spa rooms. Each residence comes accompanied by complimentary Wi-Fi, nightly manager-hosted wine hour in the living room, and an on-site fitness center. Need a breath of fresh air and freedom? Take a cruise through the pages of American history on one of the hotel-provided bikes or let one of the complimentary kites fly in Ben Franklin’s very own backyard. InTouch members get a bevy of additional touches but one thing remains certain: Both you, your family, your business partners, and, yes, even your tag-along pet will not leave unspoiled.
With so many relaxing, individual activities to pursue one couldn’t be blamed for forgetting the glut social opportunities that the Hotel Monaco Philadelphia offers. Kimpton, however, has made sure to imprint these in your memory as well. A sprawling 13,000 square foot meeting offers the perfect venue for business conventions while the intimate 3,000 square foot ballroom allows couples ample opportunity to rekindle their romance, just add champagne. Take off the tie and roll up the sleeves for dinner at the street-side Red Owl Tavern or take in the sprawl of a classic American skyline from Philadelphia’s only true rooftop lounge. Work hard, relax even harder. These were the principals that both the Hotel Monaco Philadelphia and America itself were built upon.
And when it finally comes time to pry yourself away, the Hotel Monaco Philadelphia—sitting a simple five minute cab ride from the bustling business district, as well as a variety of boutiques, shops, and cafes— makes it as easy as possible.
