If William Penn could navigate this turf on horseback, we're confident you can do it by foot, by bike or by car. Our address at 5th and Chestnut streets drops us in a highly walkable zone—smack-dab in the midst of the Birthplace of America, across the street from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall (and around the corner from the home of Betsy Ross). The Philadelphia International Airport is just a 15- to 30-minute ride away (based on traffic), and we're not far from several SEPTA train stations, too. We find ourselves at the crossroads of historic and happening culture, meaning you can head in most any direction and find a destination you'll love.

Hotel Monaco in Philadelphia is easily accessible from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). From PHL, a cab takes 15-20 minutes depending on traffic.

SEPTA Train:
Taking the train around Philadelphia can be a convenient way to travel (if walking isn't your style). Hotel Monaco is located close to the SEPTA Market-Franford line which can take you Center City and Rittenhouse Square.
