  • They have gone above and beyond since day one! Our wedding was canceled twice due to COVID and they were extremely helpful and accommodating. Every single person that works there is so nice, especially Desiree Sklar. The hotel is beautiful, welcoming and fun. Plus, they’re dog friendly so our fur babies are able to be apart of our big day.

  • Booking the Kimpton for our wedding was the best decision we made for the big day! Desiree and the rest of the Kimpton staff is a delight to work with, especially when postponing our wedding from 06/27/2020 to 06/20/2021. Desiree was in constant communication to help make our new day special with all of the necessary COVID precautions. We love the retro and classic feel of the Kimpton in the heart of Philadelphia. We're so excited for the big day coming soon!

  • My fiancé and I have been planning our New Year’s Eve dream wedding since last year around this time. ( pre-Covid) during that time Desiree kept us informed and was able to help us make decisions regarding our dream wedding. When we were told that due to state guidelines we would have to postpone our party Desiree was with us each step of the way! She helped us to feel at ease with the changes and was even able to help us weigh out our options. We were able to move our reception to June 2021 which we cannot wait for! Thank you so much to Desiree and Hotel Monaco for helping us navigate through Covid and still have the magic of special wedding day we truly appreciate you and call you family.

  • We have had the most amazing experience with the Kimpton. The last year did not go remotely as planned and Desiree and the entire team at the Kimpton always took care of us and made us feel supported. We could not be more grateful to have chosen Hotel Monaco for our wedding.

  • My husband and I just had our wedding here this past weekend and it was absolutely PERFECT. Desiree and Carly were so professional and went above and beyond. Besides the venue being beautiful, these two are the reason why I had the most perfect wedding. Can not express how thankful I am for their help!

  • 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!

  • I honestly don't even know where to begin when reviewing the Hotel Monaco as a wedding venue. We booked the venue because of the beauty of the space and the competence of the team there. The cocktail hour on the Stratus Lounge and reception in the Lafayette ballroom is the perfect setting for a wedding, especially if you have out of town guests staying at the hotel as well. We loved having everything in one place. We even had our welcome drinks at the Red Owl Tavern, which made it so easy. Mid-way through our planning process, the team actually changed out, and Jackie became our new go-to person. I can honestly say that having Jackie become our wedding coordinator/manager was the single best thing to happen to us during the entire planning process. She has an incredibly rare combination of intelligence, patience, diligence, and excellent client management that makes you feel taken care of. We really trusted her, and we know she played an integral part in the success of our day. To give... Read more

  • 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!

  • Bernardo was our waiter as we went through the taste testing for our wedding this spring. He was knowledgeable, good- natured, and professional. We really enjoyed the experience and know our guests will have a great evening at our wedding. Thank you Hotel Monaco!

  • Our wedding venue search started and ended with the Hotel Monaco. Literally we went to look at one other venue after seeing the Hotel Monaco just to be polite as it was too soon to cancel but we knew we found the perfect spot right away. We initially worked with Matt Bassant although he left half way through the planning process. We had a completely smooth transition and began working with Jackie DeLawrence. The building, convenience of hotel and venue in one, decor and vibe were exactly what we were looking for. The food, alcohol and accommodations were above and beyond and every request we had was fulfilled without batting an eye. It was truly customer service at its finest. The bell hops and valet will know your name and remember it after your first meeting and somehow knew we were a bride and groom hosting an event there every time we pulled up. The best part of hosting your wedding there is you can tell everyone who works at the Monaco loves their job and this truly translates to ... Read more

  • We had our wedding here in January of 2018. We had about 100 guests. Everything was amazing from the food, the staff (especially valet attendants!), appearance of the hotel, and the service. The catering sales manager, Matt Basset was also nothing short of amazing. He quickly answered ALL of my MANY emails and kept me calm and feeling good about all of our decisions for the wedding. We had a lot of out of town family come to our wedding & they stayed at the hotel. They raved about how great everything was. There were a lot of things locally for them to do in Old City Philadelphia as well, which was a plus for people wanting to explore the city. We highly recommend you look into Hotel Monaco Philadelphia for any event!

  • We're getting married here in 2021. From the very first interaction (thru planning, etc.), Desiree and her team rolled out the red carpet. Beyond their expertise, they are truly human - setting our mind at ease about everything (both normal wedding-related worries and added complexity of the pandemic). They also recognized the importance of our culture by agreeing to prepare a special Filipino dish for our guests. Highly recommend.

  • We booked Monaco exactly a year before our wedding, and couldn't be happier with our decision. We had multiple events at the venue, and Matt and his team were more than accommodating to our random requests. The ballroom is beautiful and with a little bit of decor, the reception came to life! My tasting experience with them was phenomenal! I couldn't decide on what to chose but loved tasting every dish that they prepared. We had a few guests staying in the hotel and they all couldn't stop gushing about how much fun they had at the hotel. Let me just say that if you want a city wedding with a guest list that isn't crazy long, Monaco is perfect! The only challenge I had, and maybe this is my fault, that I didn't get all my stuff back from the venue that I used for decor and other things. I should have been more upfront about wanting it back! Matt is amazing though, you will live every moment of working with him!
