We were lucky enough to get a great deal at the Monaco in DC. It was amazing! The location is perfect, we barely needed to use the Metro because it was so close to everything! They upgraded us to a suite, which was perfect for our family of 4. My kids loved the goldfish in the room, what a cute... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Monaco for New Year's Eve. It was absolutely fabulous. We had a corner room which had very high ceilings and a nice, huge bed with a super tall headboard. I requested the goldfish, which is such an awesome touch that Kimpton Hotels do at all of their locations (I believe). Lots of windows in... More

We are loyal Kimpton customers, staying almost exclusively in their hotels when we travel to cities where they are present. We had stayed in the DC Palomar about 18 months and had such a wonderful experience that we decided to return. However, when we saw the pictures and reviews of the Monaco we decided to give it a go. And... More

I am a VERY frequent guest of this hotel. I have also recommended it to many people, have had large groups stay there for events, etc. I cannot say how disappointed I am that despite (1) a year of alerting management and (2) assurances from management that the problem would be dealt with, I again arrived at the Monaco last...

Classy cozy restaurant with great dishes and Happy Hour menu is neat as well. Love Hotel Monaco for casual lunches with friends and is great for romantic get away, too. The service is always great and I like the feeling of MONACO for a day.

July 9-11, 2014 visit. Great location, tending toward the Capitol end of the Mall. Classy, well done refurbishing of an old building that occupies a full city block. The layout is a square with a sizable courtyard area occupying the center. Lovely, wide hallways, our 4th floor room looking across F St at the Natl Portrait Gallery. The hotel's gracious... More

Thank you so much for your thorough review Sheeshman_13! I'm glad you enjoyed what we've done with the place, and the location is truly one of our best assets I agree. And after all, who doesn't have time for a little romance? We hope you do again soon! Cheers Ed - Monaco DC GM More

We stayed at Hotel Moncao in Washington DC from June 27 through July 1. We were in town for my cousin's wedding (for which I was the Best Man), which was taking place in one of the ballrooms in the hotel so we figured it'd be most convenient to stay there. We are a family of five, with three young... More

Awesome visit to DC! Hotel Monaco is sooo convenient to everything-metro, mall, monuments, museums. Because the hotel is in an old post office, the walls are thick and the interior a quiet oasis from the busy city life. I slept 12 hours, enjoyed runs on the mall, shopping nearby, and took the metro across the street to explore the city.... More

Picked this hotel through the reviews from Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. We were even given an upgrade at no extra charge. The service was excellent from all the staff. This hotel is close to all the major attractions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone whether for vacation or business.

Our location is truly second to none Pjtribolet, and thanks for your other great observations as well - the staff is the "secret sauce" that really gets things cooking! And speaking of cooking - did we mention that Poste Brasserie has a new Chef? Come back again soon and sample! Yum! Cheers Ed - Monaco DC GM More
