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!

Hotel Monco is AMAZING! We blocked our room, the bridal suite, and a few other suites for the wedding and they were so easy to work with and everything is done online. We also are using them for a good-bye brunch and we're using the rooftop lounge as the afterparty location ..... They have been a dream to work with I'm so happy with the service.

A huge thank you is owed to Janet and her team at Hotel Monaco for an absolutely perfect reception! From the start, all of our interactions have been exceptional. Janet hosted my now-husband and I for our initial meeting and we instantly fell in love with the hotel and the ballroom. Janet has been in the business for awhile and helped us novices navigate wedding planning (she even helped us select our rehearsal dinner venue). She gave a full list of preferred vendors, all of which turned out to be amazing! We used the Girard room for the cocktail hour and the Lafayette Ballroom (across the hall) for the reception dinner, all are located on the ground floor and were convenient for guests, the majority of which stayed at the hotel. The ballroom is absolutely stunning, with beautiful banquet chairs and decor. You don’t need to purchase or rent your own linens or dancefloor or tables! In addition, the food is divine. Philip and I had such fun at the tasting with Janet and Bernardo (our server) and fell in love with every dish that was served. Everything tasted even better on our actual wedding day and my husband and I were spoiled with our own server who made sure I had a drink in my hand the entire night! Hotel Monaco made everything so easy for us because everything was taken care of for us - including a day-of coordinator, which allowed myself and my friends and family enjoy the day with no responsibilities. In addition, when the bridal party was stranded in the limo because of a crazy thunderstorm, the staff at Hotel Monaco formed an umbrella tunnel for the bridal party to enter through. These little details, as well as the grand-scale coordination, are what makes Hotel Monaco so special. Best wedding ever!

The Monaco more than lived up to its status as the “#1 Wedding Hotel” in Philadelphia. Every inch of the hotel was beautiful and made for a perfect backdrop for our pictures. The staff was attentive to our every need, going above and beyond to address small issues and surprising us with chocolates, wine, and prosecco. Our guests loved every moment of their stay. Highly recommended.

We had an amazing time here at our wedding. The staff was on hand every step of the way and we had what we needed every step of the way as we planned and coordinated. Samantha had started going over everything with us however, she wound up accepting another opportunity elsewhere and Matt had stepped into oversee the rest of our event. The transition was flawless and needless to say our ceremony and reception was truly amazing thanks to their planning and the venue itself. We can't thank them enough. Highly recommend!

The Hotel Monaco was a great choice for our wedding room blocks. We did not have our actual wedding at the Monaco because we were going for an industrial look for our wedding and had to book elsewhere. That said, we had our rehearsal dinner, after party dinner/drinks, farewell brunch, and guests room blocks at the Monaco and I have nothing but great things to say. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, as are the rooms and the views. The corner suite I used to get ready housed all eight of my bridesmaids, three hair/make up people, two mothers of the bride, and a few others comfortably. My friends and family were able to bring their dogs with them, and used a service through the hotel to get their dogs walked while we were at the wedding. The staff is super helpful and friendly, I worked with Katie who was a great help and very responsive. The rehearsal dinner at The Red Owl Tavern was wonderful, albeit pretty expensive. It would be ideal if they had a more private room at the tavern for a party of our size (50 people) but regardless it was a great meal with friendly staff. We went to the Stratus Rooftop after the rehearsal dinner and used one of the lounges. This was one of our favorite parts. Everyone was able to mingle and the atmosphere was amazing. The Farewell brunch was also a great add-on we did, using one of their smaller ballrooms to host our guests. Everyone kept talking about how great the food was and how beautiful the hotel was. And let's not forget the location.... right in the heart of center city. Would highly recommend the Hotel Monaco to any bride!

My husband I had our wedding at the Hotel Monaco one Saturday night this past August. From start to finish everything was absolutely incredible! The wedding coordinator Janet and her entire team went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding was perfect. Specifically, bar service and table service were more professional than any wedding we have ever been to AND the room looked absolutely stunning. The decor matched so perfectly with our flowers and we were thrilled with how quickly they converted the room between ceremony and reception. The food was delicious too, especially the passed hors d'oeuvres and the short ribs. Additionally, guests adored the hotel rooms especially the fact that the hotel staff hand delivered each individual welcome bag to each hotel room! I can't thank everyone at the Monaco enough, it truly was the most magical night!!!!!

We got ready the morning of our wedding at Hotel Monaco, had our Cocktail Hour on the Stratus Rooftop Lounge, and held our Reception in the Lafayette Ballroom on the Sunday of Memorial Day, 2016. Hotel Monaco was the first venue we looked at. Being very indecisive, I felt the need to explore practically every other option in the city before deciding to move forward with the Monaco. But, really, there was no comparison. The combo of the Stratus, the beautiful Lafayette Ballroom and the Old City location is unbeatable. I should also say that holding our wedding on a Sunday (even though it was Memorial Day weekend), the Monaco offered us an AMAZING deal. Honestly, we would not have been able to afford this venue if we held our wedding on a Saturday, and Janet was truly accommodating in tweaking our menu to get us in right where we wanted to be, budget-wise. Our families were coming to Philadelphia from all over the country, so this was the perfect spot for us to host our pseudo-destination wedding. The Monaco gave us an excellent room block rate compared to other (less-nice) hotels in the area, and our guests loved the free happy hour every night in the lobby! Throughout the entire year and a half planning process, Janet was incredibly responsive, helpful, and patient with my constant questions, and was present on the day of the wedding, making sure everything we had discussed was in place. Our guests raved about the food (the short rib!! the crab cakes!) and the service throughout the evening was exceptional. My husband and I felt so well cared for and the catering staff had taken care of every detail. Another huge plus was that the Monaco only hosts one wedding a night. I would highly recommend the Monaco to any bride. The venue goes far and above a “standard” ballroom and the staff are phenomenal.

We had our cocktail hour at the Stratus Rooftop Lounge and our reception at the Lafayette ballroom. Janet and her crew were amazing, they helped us with every detail and everything went smoothly. The food was AMAZING especially at cocktail hour, our guests couldn't stop talking about it. The ballroom was beautiful and the servers were so great, i have nothing but great things to say about this hotel and the staff. They all were attentive and very prompt with answering emails and phone calls. Our hotel room was huge and so beautiful for the pictures. - Marianna and Bryan (4.30.2016).

We blocked rooms at the Hotel Monaco Philadelphia for our out-of town guests, used a suite for bridal party hair and make-up and hosted a brunch the morning after the wedding in the Lafayette ballroom. I was thoroughly impressed with the service and professionalism of everyone I worked with throughout the process. From the initial set up and booking of the room block with Brian Brazina, to selecting the catering options with Samantha Levy, to the responsiveness of the staff at the hotel all weekend, I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone to use this hotel on your wedding weekend.

I recommend this venue HIGHLY. If you are even considering another venue, quickly come to your senses and go with the Hotel Monaco. We had the best experience with this hotel largely due to the people we dealt with. Everyone was genuinely kind and very helpful. Every detail was handled and I feel like I just showed up at my own wedding and everything was perfect and handled as if I'd done the smallest detail myself. This boutique hotel is beautiful and all options for venues are excellent (and unique). We did the Stratus Lounge which was awesome and totally out of the ordinary. Couldn't have been better. Samantha Levy ran our event and you should have her run yours too!! Thank you Sam, Brian, and Matt! You guys made our day amazing.
