From the perfect location in Old City to the amazing staff and beautiful decor this hotel is a complete class act I would definitely return here to stay Not only does the hotel host complimentary morning beverages (tea and coffee) but they also host an evening cocktail hour in the reservation parlor

The staff were all polite and professional from the curbside valet attendant (David) to the front desk I did not encounter any issues during my stay Check-in was a breeze If possible on short stays, opt in to not have your room turned over for a bill credit at the adjacent Red Owl restaurant Red Owl restaurant is located adjacent to the lobby at Kimpton Monaco The food is good as well as the service

Miles Bolland

The Monaco is an elegant and well appointed hotel, surrounded by the history of not only the city, but the country From Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, to being able to see the USS New Jersey on the river, the views are something elseThe common areas are beautiful, from the ship chandelier in the entrance way, to the furniture around the reception area

The rooms are comfortable and look amazing The showers are okay and while not stand out, they shouldn’t be marked down on them However in 2/3 rooms we stayed in we had baths, and one was fantastic while the bath/shower in the suite was incredibleOne thing I will say that was a nuisance, the TVs were basically the same as you’d have found in a hotel 15 years ago Cable and movies on demand A smart TV or any provided ability to use streaming services (whether through a wireless phone connection or signing into the service on the TV) would have been much better Likewise an odd area is that tea/coffee facilities for the room had to be requestedThe thing that absolutely stands out though was the staff Every single one of them was friendly, knowledgeable and happy to help Regardless of number of questions asked they were patient and accommodating From door staff, to cleaners, to reception, every single one I dealt with was a credit to the hotelWithout a doubt the Monaco would be my first stop were I in Philadelphia again, and it has also created an interest in the Kimpton brand as a whole

Great experience start to finish Greeted warmly, room clean and comfortable, breakfast seemed to be gone when we arrived, as the hotel was full and there were many people eating, but then they brought out fresh food and refilled all of the stations Was helped with a much needed toothbrush from the front desk

Bottom line, even though they were fully booked, they took the time to make sure every guest was taken care of

Cayla K. Slaughter

TERRIBLE experience checking in Melissa O, the front desk representative, that checked my husband in was probably the rudest representative I’ve ever dealt with

I booked the room for my husband through bookingcom, not realizing that I needed to be physically present to use the card on file Instead of helping us problem solve, Melissa was rude, demeaning, and created more problems for us When we asked to speak with a manager, we were told there was no one else available that could speak with us When we started to get angry about her attitude, she told us that she could deny us checking in for any reason and if we didn’t do what she said, she would not let my husband check in When asked for the policy stating she could do that, she refused to give it to us and continued to tell us we were wrong The whole experience dealing with her was just absolutely awful After all this, my credit card, the one she told us we could not use, was ultimately charged for the stay causing us to be double chargedTo top it all off the room was only moderately clean, but we didn’t dare bring it up to Melissa as she would have likely just told my husband to leave the hotelI was finally able to get a contact for the manager and left her a voicemail expressing my displeasure However, no one called me back Rather than remedy the issue, they ghosted us I will never stay here again and am extremely disappointed in Hilton Hotels service

Chelsea B

It’s a pretty new hotel but you can tell they do the minimum to keep the hotel looking nice We were called by a man from the front desk at 930 in the morning asking us why are belongings were still in the room because housekeeping needed to get in We stated we booked for 2 nights instead of 1

We asked him to hold while we found our booking confirmation He hung up, we called back and he said there was an error in the booking system You’d think he’d apologize but nope! If you’re looking to stay at one of the “nicer” Hampton Inn’s head over to the one off Route 73 in Voorhees The hotel is nicer with better customer service

A wonderful experience from beginning to end

Communication was excellent, and our suite was just beautiful Big windows, well heated, nicely furnished, and spotless It was really like a studio apartment We were within walking distance of many restaurants So much better than staying in a chain hotel! We highly recommend Local Hotel-Fishtown

Marian McDermott

Spotless, beautiful and great location! We really enjoyed our stay at this “hotel” Easy entry, safe and a wonderful experienceThe only warning I have is that the steps were pretty steep inside our apartment

It was fine for us, but for anyone with limited mobility, the steps might not be desirableWe would stay here again in a heartbeat

Shawn Green

We stumbled across Lokal looking for a place to stay for a rowing competition on the Schuylkill river We only stayed overnight but can’t compliment the place enough It was super clean, extremely well appointed and very comfortable

Parking for the hotel is a paid lot about a block away and at the time of this review was $25 overnight We had a 2 bedroom on the third floor This is a converted older building so I didn’t see an elevator If you have a mobility issue I’d reach out to the staff before booking If I were coming back to Philly, this would be near the top of my list of places to stay

Rooms were ok Shower was nice and bed was comfortable Sofa pull out was a nightmare so my daughter just slept on it as a couch

Pool was broken and didn’t know until we checked in so kids were bummed Tried to get a discount but no go They charged a daily deposit on our credit card, after we checked in Usually hotels don’t charge your card until you check out We had an extra $500 charged to our card at check-in over top of the cost of the room for 4 nights Glad that wasn’t all of our vacation money Guy at the counter said every hotel does it this way Not true, that was a big charge all at once And the refund of the deposit would take 3 to 5 business days So be prepared to have deposit money tied up for a while

Jamie Wong

If I could give this hotel (if it can even be called that) 0 stars I would I’ve stayed in motels that were in less disrepair than this The price is ASTRONOMICALLY OUTRAGEOUS compared to what you get

My husband and I paid almost $200 per night for a room that had WET and musty carpets throughout Many things did not work in the room including: the coffee maker and the hot water The shower was dirty with hair and had mold in all of the cornersThroughout the hotel, there was more “under construction” than there was in operation, including: the pool, the gym, and the laundry facilities The entire upper floor was also under construction, but no work was ever seen being done, so it makes one wonder why the upper floor was under construction in the first placeWhen we addressed these issues to hotel staff, we were brushed off and ignored Both managers were suspiciously not at work nor available to discuss these issues We insisted that we could not stay for the full duration of our originally booked nights, as the conditions were clearly unsafe and unfit This hotel is pet-friendly (one of the main reasons I booked here in the first place), however, I feared my cat would get sick from the musty, moldiness accumulating throughout the roomWe left after staying only one night and luckily found a room at another hotel nearby that was satisfactory We even learned from one of the hotel staff at this 2nd hotel, that Hyatt House has had NUMEROUS Health & Safety violationsAfter calling Hyatt customer service FIVE TIMES, the only resolution we received was 5,000 points toward our Hyatt account No refund No apology nor compensation for the risk to our health and safety, not to mention the emotional stress we were put through, just to come to some sort of resolutionI sincerely hope this hotel is permanently shut down one day very soon I honestly don’t ever want to stay at ANY Hyatt hotel ever again after the way we were treated throughout this experience

Scott Calkins

I desperately needed a place to stay on my way down the coastGreat location to the highwayvery comfortable roomIt was just weird that I had to go upstairs instead of an elevator, having bags with me, but I will definitely use this place again

Howard Klions

The Thomas Bond house is a great place to stay The rooms were a little small as you would expect in the historic house but our room was very comfortable The houses clean and well kept

Craig was very helpful, making suggestions on places to eat and things to do, but also but also giving us some of the history of the house The location was excellent, with an easy walking distance of everything in the historic district and from the waterfront We would certainly stay there again

Devyn Honbo

Staying at Thomas Bond House was my first experience at a B&B and it was outstanding! We stayed for one night in the Benjamin Franklin room and it thoroughly exceeded my expectationsWe decided to stay at a B&B over a regular hotel because the pricing was comparable to any of the chain hotels in the downtown area and the photos of the rooms online looked so charmingThe innkeeper, Craig, is funny, warm, and welcoming

We asked to drop off/pick up our bags outside of normal check in/out times and they were more than accommodating! Staying here feels like staying at an old friend’s house, not to mention the absolutely gorgeous décor in every detail of the house!My favorite part of the stay was definitely the hot breakfast which they serve on weekends As we came down into the dining room, the staff cooked our breakfast fresh and it was such a lovely experience I highly recommend the French Toast if you are luck enough to stay on a morning it is served!If you are looking for a unique, personalized, lodging experience I cannot recommend Thomas Bond House highly enough!! We will definitely be staying here again the next time we visit Philly!!

Ashlina Chin

We LOVED our stay at Thomas Bond House! What a cool and unique little spot to stay while visiting Philadelphia We felt that the room and bathroom were on the smaller side, but with all the extra amenities (eg

, homemade cookies, breakfast, wine happy hour, etc), we really didn’t mind Craig, the innkeeper, was extremely hospitable and charismatic He had so much knowledge of the area and great recommendations for food and attractions Can’t ask for better customer service! Also, we really loved the resident cat who was extremely friendly and sweet If you’re looking for a unique stay with great service in the heart of historic Philadelphia, this place is for you!

David Pringle

Ideal spot to stay if you’re interested in American History One block from Independence Hall and plenty of historical sites Rooms at different prices to fit your budget

Very nice rooms Rooms on higher floors have good views of the area While checking in you will find some of the most respectful people behind the counter that make a great impression Also provides maps of the areas historical spots within walking distance

Jacob Parnell

Pretty terrible experienceThe good:Great location: the hotel is in old city and is walking distance to many historic locations and great restaurantsThe bad:The service is terrible Housekeeping didn’t visit our room once

We specifically asked for a duvet cover and no one brought us oneThe shower didn’t work very well and switched between hot and cold water in the middle of the showerOur bed had stains on itThe hotel and parking is very expensive for what it isThe hotel is understaffed Front desk would constantly put us on hold or even not take our callsOverall, the hotel is not great You’d be better off finding a cheaper name brand hotel elsewhere if you didn’t care where you were staying However, if you want to be able to walk anywhere in Old Town, this hotel is in a fantastic location

We had a nice stay Our original room had an odd odor, so we asked to switch and was accommodated without issue The 2nd room smelled also, but not as bad

Smelled like old food The bed was comfy and the breakfast was pretty good The hotel needs a lot of updates Stained and old furniture, old fixtures in the bathroom The major downside was that the pool was still closed due to COVID, they said Staff was very nice

Mass Engineer

Would definitely stay here again Highly recommendedWe wanted a suite with 2 separate bedrooms and 2 bathrooms because the 5 of us included my son and his girlfriend

We also have a dog so we needed pet friendly (dogs allowed) Staybridge Suites Mt Laurel NJ is one of the few places in the Philadelphia area that met our needs Clean, quieter than most motels (which was good because our dog barks when he hears a sound outside the room, and he didn’t when we were in the bedrooms trying to sleep) Hot breakfast was pretty good with delicious sausage or Canadian bacon, hash browns (also cheese omelet or scrambled eggs (I didn’t try these)), oatmeal looked a little watery, 3 kinds of cereal (cheerios, corn flakes, fruit loops) – I’d prefer a healthier (higher fiber) option like raisin bran or frosted shredded wheat Orange and apple juice ran out 1 day when the motel was full, and they had no refills I mean this as constructive feedback, not a big criticism, shortages happen sometimes Considering we stayed after the “big quit” this motel was well staffed and run Multiple front desk people were very good eg Asian woman, black guy – sorry I didn’t get your names, but you probably know who you areWe stayed 3 nights over 4th of July weekend The Saturday night room price was about 80% higher than the Sunday or Monday night price; I wish there wasn’t as high a premium price for the one night, but other motels did the same or even higher

We booked our hotel room block for our wedding here through Devyn and we couldn’t be happier! The hotel is clean, the rooms are quiet, and the amenities were great The hotel lobby bar was great for our after party with a pool table, giant connect four, and plenty of space to mingle Stephanie, the bartender, couldn’t have been more helpful and kept everyone served quickly all night long

We couldn’t be more pleased with our stay Book your room block here if you’re getting married close by! You won’t regret it

Kerri Goust

I travel a lot for my job I love Marriott but I wouldn’t ever stay at this one again Several of my nights had the awful pungent smell of marijuana coming from one of the neighboring rooms

Several of the hotel staff was very rude Additionally, our door was open one day when we returned The door did not close properly Maintenance did come up to check it and he arrived fairly quickly He tried to get it fixed but wasn’t able to do much at that time He was nice


Aloft Mount Laurel handled by 72 room wedding block with ease Devyn, is an absolute angel and was amazing to work with The bar is great and the courtyard space is perfect for enjoying a beverage from the bar

Not a single complaint from our guests Would highly recommend them to any one looking for a wedding block in the area if you want a seamless and stress free hotel!!

Retta’s Raw Necessities

We stayed for (thankfully only) one night at this hotel The front desk staff was very welcoming We even received warm walnut/choc chip cookies that were delicious! Unfortunately, that’s where the compliments end

We were asked to sign an acknowledgment statement that this is a NO SMOKING policy hotel No problem, none of us smoke As we went up to our room, there was a strong smell of weed and cigars wafting through the hallways When showering, the water did not drain properly so we were anklet deep in water There were dust bunnies in the corners in the bathroom areas The phone in the room did not work There were no batteries in the TV remote And the ice machine on our floor did not work My friend, who stayed in another room had food left in her fridge by the previous guests I brought this to the attention of the front desk clerk upon checkout The only thing that was offered was to add points to my Hilton rewards For the amount of money they charge, I would not stay at this particular hotel again

Jillian Gundersen

The rooms were decently sized and clean However, we were part of a group booking for a wedding and were staying at the hotel Only half the wedding guests who checked in received their “Thank you” bags provided by the couple with the weekend itinerary and also didn’t receive their breakfast vouchers

This meant multiple trips had to be made to the front desk which is a very far walk from the rooms We also tried calling the front desk multiple times with no answer We assumed they were busy but when once again walking to the front desk, no one was in line with only one person behind the desk This person did not have the answers we needed as it didn’t appear he actually worked the front desk and must have just been manning the counter for the time being I wouldn’t recommend this hotel for a wedding group booking There are so many better hotels in the area

Scott Aaron

The hotel is a bit dated but for the most part everything seemed maintained The room (#204) was spacious and clean A table and chair would have been nice on the balcony but other than that it was good

There was a small issue with the carbon monoxide detector low battery beep in my room and it did take a while to get it corrected the General Manager reached out the next day to make sure it was all taken care of, nice lady BTW Restaurant was actually pretty good for a hotel Wayne in the bar is awesome, do stop by and see him!

I would give no stars but one is the only option This Marriott used to be great for a family stay or just a solo vacation to relax or travel to The thermostat didn’t work and the ac was blowing out hot air

The dishes were stained and not properly cleaned As you look around there were knobs and holes in the rooms Hotel staff were friendly at the main office but yet facility was disgusting The room had a crack bag in there and also blood and bodily fluids on the sides of the sheets Breakfast was limited and ran out quick Great staff in the kitchen but wouldn’t change out the trash bins and would let it overflow Pool not open to customers of course of COVID standards but still charge you for the luxury of it Wouldn’t recommend to anyone at all Laundry room everything was closed or not in service very high prices for a 2 star motel experience

Allegra Trice

Upon arriving, staff was very respectful and polite Once I entered my room, I noticed carpet was not clean, found a glass mixing bowl in the oven with an odor, old dried out rice and ground beef in it The fitted sheet had a stain the size of a cantaloupe

I asked for my sheets to be changed, the staff told me it wasn’t my day for my floor to have room service They sent someone up with a set of sheets to give me That set had a rip in it As I pulled the first set of sheets off, 90% the mattress was STAINED NEVER again!!!!

Very disappointed Definitely not a value for the $ they charged Weak management

Breakfast marginal at best Institutional eggs, pre cooked single meat choice , packaged everything else Toaster did not appear until day 3Water leak appeared on 2d floor and made it to the first floor Hotel shut off the water but no messages sentRooms tired and need an update Cracked tiles, carpet undone, mattresses not flipped, toilet paper holder fell offFront desk staff were very pleasant and helpful, as best they could They were the bright spot in a stay that was tolerated but will never be repeated

This hotel is in a spectacular location but has a mildly dysfunctional front desk staff During my two day stay we had issues scheduling housekeeping with the front desk and then after my stay we found nearly $120 in extra, erroneous charges On the bright side, the valet personnel was pleasant and professional

But, clearly, it is not a well oiled machine at the Renaissance Philadelphia Downtown Hotel and anyone that values good service and accurate billing should be aware of this


Had a lovely stay because the staff is so kind, friendly, and helpful I will go back Superb location in walking distance of independence Hall, Liberty Bell, lots of restaurants and anything you need

My 4 star is because hallways and rooms and gathering areas are dark I see this as a trend in my Marriott stays this year Thankfully, in the rooms, the bathroom was bright The opening area in the room was bright, too Huge full length mirror! 5 star mirror! It was better for makeup than the bath mirror with that perimeter lighting around the edges that leaves your face darkened and you can’t lean over the counter close enough to see what you’re doingIn the bedroom and gathering areas like the lobby, big windows make it ok in the daylight, but after dark, you have to use your phone as a flashlight if you drop something on the floor in the bedroom The walls are black, the floor is nearly as dark, and the only lights are reading lights at a chair, the bed, and the desk No reflected light to see what’s in your suitcase No luggage rack Put it on the chair and turned on the reading light In the hallways, there was no direct light at my door Even the overhead hall lights are dim Fortunately, I felt safe in the hotel No complimentary coffee On Sat there was a $17 breakfast buffet with only 4 items: scrambled eggs, French toast and white bread, potatoes, bacon and sausage Nice 3-4 Juices! Coffee, no decaf No fruit, no oatmeal Online there’s a nice menu, so maybe you should check to see if this was a one time occurrence If not, Frieda a block away has a nice European breakfast Really, a great weekend!

From the second you walk in, you feel welcome and taken care of It’s dimly lit and has a creepy feeling to it from the elevators to the hallways It’s great The decor fits this vibe There is a nice restaurant and lounge as well in lobbyThe room was very nice As someone else mentioned they were a little worn but not a big deal You can’t overhaul them every year and be profitable BUT, it was clean Our room overlooked Independence Hall which was out of this world I was not expecting that Only thing I would have liked differently is a fan in the bathroom, one for obvious reasons and two because of the moisture and steam from the shower But again not a big deal It’s apparently a dog friendly hotel as wellBottom line, if you are there for history, this hotel can’t be beat for its location, price and it’s condition Literally right next door to Independence Hall, Liberty Bell and blocks from the Betsy Ross house All Museums are no more than a 2 mile walk as well I’d highly recommend this place

Room was dirty, hair in shower, dust all over, disgusting “spray” on the headboard They refunded me a $100 But we couldn’t shower & we slept at the end of the bed

It is a gorgeous view but was very disappointed with how dirty it was for the money If I had the money to get a different hotel, I would of The staff was super friendly though For hundreds of dollars for one night, I should of been able to shower & sleep normally!

Very clean and historic Everything is near by so you can hit the night life and enjoy yourself My only issues were the tub, it’s so high so don’t climb in there if you cannot take a big step

Also the walls are very thin so prepare to hear your neighbors conversations Lastly it doesn’t have microwave, refrigerator or things like that but other than that I like this hotel

Rae Morse

From the moment I arrived the service was wonderful The gentleman at the front desk let me check in 4 hours early, which was so kind He suggested the restaurant on site, the Panarama, and it was amazing

The hotel stay is comfortable, they had coffee and muffins downstairs in the morning The bed was perfect The location was close to the subway station and many sightseeing spots I the building is a historical landmark I am very glad I picked this hotel

Stephanie Jacobs

I booked this hotel for a last minute visit to Philadelphia for Fourth of July We were so pleasantly surprised with the room and extremely happy with the accommodations It was clean, very cutely decorated, and the staff was extremely helpful

The location was amazing because it was close to pretty much everything around Penns Landing and market Street We had to walk everywhere due to traffic and you couldn’t be this location I would definitely stay here again

We liked our stay at Hyatt Place; it was very clean, and they did offer breakfast When we got there the staff was friendly courteous and professional They informed us that they had implemented a policy of no contact with the cleaning staff because of COVID19, but we could call to receive fresh linen, unlike some other hotels where they offered nothing

No clean linen or explanation for anything Our only problem had to do with remodeling and refreshing of the hotel The Hyatt is in need of an update other than that I would recommend this hotel as worth the stay

Savannah Taylor

I would definitely stay here again! Good service, comfortable room with really lovely modern furnitureOnly complaints were that the bathtub could have been cleaner (found a couple loose hairs and dirty spots that would have easily been rubbed off), and there were a couple mold spots on the shower curtain But I still felt comfortable taking a shower and otherwise everything was great

This was the perfect spot for us because we were on a road trip and we were leaving the Philadelphia area the next morning for Connecticut So we completely missed the Philly traffic the next day by staying there and it was really easy to get going onto our next destination

David Hedrick

This is really a great place to stay Clean rooms Comfortable beds

The only thing lacking was a more expansive breakfast option They’re still operating on mostly prepackaged items, which is a surely a relic from the pandemic But many other hotel chains have returned to normal in that regard And we’ve long since determined that COVID doesn’t primarily spread through contaminated surfaces, so it just seems like unnecessary overkill at this point Masks are optional, but we can’t have a regular breakfast? Seems odd Otherwise, I’ve never had a bad Hyatt place experience, and this lived up to that record

Would never stay at this hotel again!! There for my sons wedding Should have realized what I was dealing with when they gave the bridal suite to one of the other guest at check in More than 24 hours after check out, they tapped my credit card again for approximately $300 and can give me no explanation whatsoever what this charge is for…fraud?? What they have mastered is the art of “a manager will speak with you later tomorrow “

You didn’t take my money out “tomorrow “ so why do I have to wait to get detail of charge?? The rooms were all left in impeccable condition at check out They were not staffed for wedding after party and guests were waiting 30+ minutes to get a single drink Very unorganized to say the least Their service did not meet basic necessity Half of the rooms had no hair dryer, none of the rooms had refrigerators or microwaves I will certainly be speaking to the wedding venue who referred us there to inform them of the disgraceful manner in which they treat their guests Maybe time to connect with a hotel that reflects their upscale values and the Westin Mt Laurel is bottom of the scale in my opinion as well as many of our guests

There were several opportunities for the hotel to make my husband’s stay right No steps were taken If 6 of your housekeeping staff called in sick – if should probably call your guests to let them know check in would be delay or find different accommodations

But that wasn’t done My husband arrived at 5 pm – well after check in time Took over 40 minutes for him to get “checked in” to an in uncleaned room He just needed to take a shower before going to a family event and was told by the time he came back the room would be cleaned He arrived back at the hotel around 2am Room still hadn’t been cleaned There was no call from the hotel to let him know So he went to the front desk No solution was provided so he slept in an unclean roomSo then I call the hotel in the morning and spoke with a Carolina – told me she was a manager She seemed sympathetic and offered points Stated that it would take a couple of days to adjust I wait the requisite number of days No points Called back the hotel – she’s on vacation so I asked to be transferred to the customer service line Spoke to a rep on the phone and was told no points had been entered in nor had any notes been added Got to a supervisor who was rude, spoke over me and hung upWorst experience ever

Logan Smith

DO NOT STAY HERE This place ruined my wedding day from start to finish The front desk lady with greasy red hair was beyond pathetic and extremely rude

Our room block for our wedding guests was so messed up and we could not have been any more embarrassed Our bridal and groomsmen ready rooms were booked on the wrong date and had to be moved last minute, the fault of solely the hotel My husband was promised his things would not be touched and when we returned to pick them up, they were thrown in another room This hotel has no respect for its guest and honestly should be shut down It’s completely run down and the rooms are dingy Do yourself a favor and run the other way from this property You too, will have the worst stay of your life I will never go back or recommend this place to anyone We were charged multiple times for our rooms because the front desk has no idea what they are doing STAY AWAY
