This was my first trip to Washington D.C..My boyfriend and I came here for vacation and to see a little history from August 17-21, 2014. We booked this hotel through hotwire for $130 a night and have no idea what to expect. We took transit from Reagan Airport, I recommend buying the $10 card from the machine it paid for... More

The service was absolutely awesome, I can't stress that enough!!! My husband, myself and our 8 yr old son spent 2 night and 3 days altogether. From the moment we pulled up the valet, the doorman the front desk were fabulous! Took our car immediately, helped with the bags from the car to our room providing information on our surrounding...

Really loved the location right in the heart of DC! Thaxton and Abby at the front desk were wonderful, a real treat when you arrive. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to go to a Wizards/Capitals game as the arena is directly across the street.

From the moment we stepped into the lobby, we were made to feel at home at the great hotel. The room exceeded my expectations too and the location is just great. I am looking forward to coming back again!

I stay at the Monaco about twice a year when traveling for business. The staff are always pleasant and helpful. The rooms are small but very comfortable. Morning coffee service and afternoon cocktail hour are welcome amenities. The exercise room is small but open 24 hrs/day. The location is near the metro so there is easy to access to the... More

The service at Hotel Monaco was exceptional and the amenities lovely. The decor is quirky and fun and much more interesting than most. They have a large and lively courtyard restaurant with good food and drinks (though it's pricey). It's close to the convention center and across the street from the national gallery. When I mentioned I liked the NY... More

Stayed on Friday/Saturday evening w/spouse and our children aged 15 and 10. Booked a Mediterranean Suite which was a lovely accommodation, with separate bedroom for us, queen pull-out sofa bed, and the addition of a rollaway bed. The latter was a little squeaky but that's to be expected. Room was spacious, clean, no disturbance from city noises even though it... More

The location is very central. We walked past the White House, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial and the Smithsonian in a couple hours. The Metro stop is on the corner and takes you straight to Reagan Airport. The staff was friendly and we loved the Wine Hour. The room was large and well decorated. Reasonably priced and... More

The hotel is situated a couple of blocks away from White House and is center to everything. Very close to metro. It is tastefully decorated, without overdoing it. The front office staff is very helpful and seems quite engaged & happy with their work. there is free coffee and tea downstairs, as well as lemon scented fresh cool water.
