Monaco Philadelphia is promoting sustainability and reducing single-use plastic waste at the hotel by offering aluminum water bottles and providing refill stations in common areas like the lobby. Aluminum water bottles are durable, reusable, and recyclable, making them an eco-friendly alternative to disposable plastic bottles.

100% Renewable Electricity

Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia purchased renewable energy credits (RECs) for 2023 and 2024. These credits help produce one megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity from renewable sources like wind or solar.

They bought enough RECs to match their usual yearly MWh usage, and all the RECs are certified by Green-e Energy. This means that in 2023 and 2024, Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia will use only 100% renewable electricity.

Farm Fields

Farm Fresh

To reduce carbon emissions from long-distance transportation and contribute to our local economy, we prioritize sourcing from nearby farms and other local food suppliers. This approach not only benefits the environment but also guarantees exceptionally fresh cuisine for our valued guests at Red Owl Tavern. Our esteemed partners in this endeavor include FarmArt, Samuels Seafood, Indian Ridge Protein, and Baker Street Bread.


Smart Air

To ensure optimal energy efficiency and adhere to the original manufacturer specifications, we diligently conduct monthly maintenance on the heating and cooling systems in our guest rooms. This regular upkeep guarantees that the systems continue to operate at their highest efficiency levels, providing you with a comfortable and environmentally conscious stay.

Plant in Hands


Guess what we do with all the recyclable materials such as paper, plastics, glass, cardboard, crates, pallets, and more at Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia? We actually recycle them instead of sending them to the landfill! We use biodegradable utensils and containers, and compost as well. To make it convenient for you to reduce waste, we provide in-room recycling bins. This way, you can easily contribute to the cycle of reducing, reusing, and recycling during your stay with us.
