We stayed here for 4 nights. Enjoyed the brilliant service, especially from the door men. VERY helpful and it was snowing. Kimpton hotels have a fab reputation for a reason, we try to stay in them as much as possible. This hotel is located so close to the sub way, restaurants, bars , museums etc.....

Liked staying here so much that I booked a room for myself on a solo trip to DC. As a female traveling alone I was a little wary of being given a 1st floor room near the lobby but OTOH it had its pluses. Super quiet, comfortable, felt secure. Can't beat this location in DC and I think we will... More

I stayed at The Hotel Monaco the weekend of the Rock N Roll Marathon. My friend picked it out being it was so close to the start of the race. The location was perfect for that but the Chinatown location was fabulous. Close to amazing restaurants, the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, and all the National museums! The Verizon Center... More

Stayed in this hotel with my husband when we attended a conference. Great location, as it was close to the Smithsonian and very easy to get a cab to travel to Georgetown or other locations. It's almost walking distance from the convention center and and basketball arena; however would definitely recommend taking cab during the winter months or at night.... More

We're happy to be your getaway spot Marisa R - we hope its only one of many to come! Though I can't change the space available in this 1839 National Historic Register building, I can heartily recommend a Monte Carlo room or one of our great suites for more space on your next visit.

Just stayed one night here... Wished I had spent my other two nights here, instead of conference location. Hotel Monaco was so cool and the service was fantastic. It's in a great location. Close walking too many sites and near red line metro. LOVED the leopard print robes!. Only wish there was Kurig coffee maker in room. They'll bring you... More

Stayed two nights at the Monaco while my husband had business at the Capitol. I can't say enough about it. The ambiance is great... Love the history of the hotel. Hot cookies upon arrival, free wine and lemon water. The decor is gorgeous and the rooms large. I love the long, gorgeous hallways. The bed sleeps well and the room... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in order to meet up with some friends in the city for dinner. We were greeted warmly by the valet and front desk staff was professional and friendly, as was the bellman. Room had a very odd layout and we definitely did not have a view, but we were spending very little... More

The Monaco used to be an old post office and oozes history. As such, it does have a few annoyances that go along with being in an old building but I liked it a lot. Check-in was very easy and pleasant and the lobby has a hard to describe hip but old school style to it. There are free cookies... More

We visited in early May. I did a lot of research on how close I could get to the National Mall, but I did also have a caveat of trying to stay at a Kimpton Hotel. We found this hotel chain a few years ago, and try to support whenever we can. The reason: they allow pets, but more specifically... More
