Cannot recommend enough!
I cannot recommend working with Hotel Monaco highly enough!! My fiance and I are transplants to Philadelphia within the past 10 months, so we know nothing about this city or any vendors. Hotel Monaco, besides working with us to make our day at their venue beyond special, have been EXTREMELY helpful in finding additional vendors and just recommending places within the city for us to try. Jackie has been lovely to work with! I would host any event at Hotel Monaco!Sent on 07/24/2019

Perfect wedding 10/10
I got married on June 8th, 2019 at Hotel Monaco. It was truly the most amazing wedding ever (I may be a bit bias) and exceeded every single one of our expectations!!!!! Desiree Sklar was our contact throughout the planning process and was there for us on our wedding day through the entire day/night. She is AN ANGEL! Truly she was made for weddings. She was so chill to work with and totally understood the vibe we were going for. Thank you so so so much hotel Monaco for bringing our vision to fruition and making it a day we will never forget. Also - can't forget about Bernardo, our server. He is THE MAN! I even convinced him to do a solo on the mic, absolutely LOVED it!Sent on 07/08/2019
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.
