The Hotel Monaco is second to none. The staff, location, food and planning was excellent.

We just had our daughter's wedding at the Hotel Monaco and it was spectacular. Fortunately, the weather cooperated and we were able to have the ceremony on the roof at the Stratus Lounge which was so unique and special. As far as the planning is concerned, Katie was beyond exceptional and I cannot say enough good things about her. She was kind, reassuring and extremely timely in her responses to our multitude of questions. There is no situation that she cannot solve. The staff was amazing including the valet, reception, reservations coordinator and the waitstaff for the wedding. No issues at all. And a special shoutout to Bernardo who was the maitre-d for the tasting. He was so much fun and made the experience very special. The food was abundant and excellent. Our guests raved about the cocktail hour and some were stuffed by the time the meal was served. The hotel is located in Old City directly across from Independence Hall and easily accessible from the airport for out-of-town guests. Consequently, there is a multitude of sites to visit and restaurants for guests during downtime. I would not hesitate to recommend the Hotel Monaco to anyone. It is superb!

Our Magical Day

Words cannot explain how magical our special day was thanks to the team at Hotel Monaco. Katie our coordinator was extremely responsive and gave great ideas for our special day. From the server Bernado who served the wedding party and guest to the bartender Brittany we received exceptional service. Bernado was very high energy with his amazing voice! Katie took a ton off our plate in what is a very stressful experience. The morning of our event, Katie came to my suite to assist with decorative items and ensured everything was perfect! I truly appreciate the service we received and can't wait to visit Hotel Monaco for our 1-year wedding anniversary.

November wedding

We just had a wedding here early November and they executed everything so flawlessly. Katie was so responsive and helpful through over a year of planning. She got back to us with any question, doubt or change so quickly and went above and beyond for helping us organize things with our vendors from the dj and timeline to the flowers and officiant. They know what they're doing at hotel Monaco and you won't have to worry about anything cause they will be very hands on helping you along the way. We had our ceremony of 74 people on the roof and then went to the ballroom for our reception.
Everything looked really beautiful in our pictures.
People loved the food, the vibe and atmosphere and the hotel itself. Communication was always clear and we ended up doing a rehearsal dinner with them which they did a great job with. They catered to my special diet and worked with me with the cocktail hour making sure I could eat and enjoy the day. Katie made us feel confident any time we saw her during the wedding and rehearsal dinner that she had us taken care of and things would be alright.

Hotel Monaco is a great place to get married. We did one of the first weddings there right after they opened, and have been back many times since. As in all Plimpton hotels, the staff is passionate and dedicated: they are committed to making your wedding a success. They are easy to work with and well organized. And their coffee is excellent.
