Though much is known about s-lecture hall polytopes, there are still many unanswered questions. In this paper, we show that slecture hall polytopes satisfy the integer decomposition property (IDP) in the case of monotonic s-sequences. Given restrictions on a monotonic s-sequence, we discuss necessary and sufficient conditions for the Fano, reflexive and Gorenstein properties. Additionally, we give a construction for producing Gorenstein/IDP lecture hall polytopes.
