The historic Lafayette Building located at Fifth and Chestnut Streets in Center City has been converted into a Hotel Monaco, a luxury boutique hotel brand for Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants. Facing Independence Hall, it is the hotel in closest proximity to Independence Mall. Hotel Monaco is a 270-room hotel with an upscale restaurant, a ballroom, and over 12,000 square feet of meeting space. The signature Hotel Monaco theme is brightly-colored, whimsical space focused on the world traveler. Given Kimpton’s eco-friendly focus, the Hotel Monaco implemented environmentally-conscious practices into its design and operations. This project has achieved LEED Gold for Commercial Interiors.

“There have been very few firms that I have worked with that are as dedicated and committed as you are. Thank you for your energy and passion on our behalf.”
