Monaco Hotel Philadelphia
The project is an adaptive reuse development of Philadelphia’s historic Lafayette Building at the corner of 5th and Chestnut Streets in the heart of Historic Philadelphia. The conversion is dramatically transforming the 11-story office building located across from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall into a 268-room, four-star Hotel Monaco.Not only will this brand new hotel property bring more than 260 awesome new guest rooms to Historic Philadelphia, it will also add a cool new restaurant to the ground floor of the hotel on 5th Street- The Red Owl.
The real attraction that most people are excited to see is the rooftop deck & lounge overlooking Independence Mall. It’s going to be big and spacious, with more than 300 seats, both inside and outside, 11 stories above the city. And it will be open to local residents to take advantage of as much as visitors staying in the hotel. This place is going to be great for happy hours, office parties and local Philadelphia residents to visit at their leisure. This will be the second new Kimpton hotel property in Philadelphia, joining the very popular Hotel Palomar in Rittenhouse Square.
The hotel’s theme of “History in the Making” has a large design role in the overhaul of the stunning Empire and Greek revival building. The hotel’s interior design features millwork treatments that include periodic inspired wainscot, wall treatments, moldings and coffered ceilings in keeping with its historical surroundings. The design of the guest rooms and suites are contemporary and sophisticated, featuring a bold and vibrant color palette.
