A Visit to Philadelphia's Hotel Monaco

I'm a huge fan of Kimpton Hotels. They're scattered around major cities with names like Monaco, Palomar, or locally inspired monikers. The hotels usually have a bold decor scheme (there are exceptions) and I can't help but take pictures when we visit a new one. We're loyal Kimpton fans for many reasons, but the biggest is their pet policy. Kimptons aren't just pet friendly, they're pet enthusiastic. At many properties, Baxter is greeted like a preferred guest with treats and gifts. Any business that is sweet to my dog has a client for life in me.

Here are a few pictures of our last visit to Philadelphia's Hotel Monaco. We had a very short visit, but it was wonderful.



 



I normally wouldn't bother with a picture of doors, but this sunny yellow was so unexpected that I had to snap a picture.


Closets usually don't get much attention, but the ones at the Monaco were so cool.



This room had pattern layered on pattern and it all worked beautifully.



Mr. Bear loved it.


And the view made me want to sing songs from 1776.

    1. We only got to stay overnight (we stopped there to break up a trip to Boston) and I had been sad at the thought of not being able to go see Independence Hall. The view fixed that!

  2. Lovely room! Pick up any inspiration for back home? ;)

    And Baxter is such a handsome dog! My goodness.

    1. Kimptons are always full of inspiration...but their color schemes are often a bit too fun for my home. The exception is the Lorien in Old Town Alexandria. It's incredibly soothing.

  3. I really need to find a reason to stay in one of these hotels! We love to travel with our dogs.

    1. We LOVE the Kimpton Hotels and you will, too. There are treats everywhere, they bring beds and bowls to the room, and at some hotels, there's even a house dog.

  4. Is it bad that I have a shirt that's the same pattern as the wallpaper? I think it might be, with the exception that my shirt is a lime green vs. the gray wallpaper... :-/

  5. I actually love that blue and white paper/fabric anybody know what it is?
    We stayed at Hotel Monoco years ago in Denver and because they are pet friendly but we didn't bring our dog from Philly they put a goldfish in our room.
