Walking down the halls of the Monaco feels a bit like walking down the halls of a much hipper Congress. Lots of marble and high ceilings accented with giant lampshade chandeliers. The rooms do not disappoint either, great decor and more high ceilings. Service is wonderful and the location is great for business or tourism. This is a gem in... More

I am a fair reviewer, not high maintenance and acknowledging that things can't always be perfect....but, this hotel had so many slips in service I wish I had chosen another hotel nearby for the $500 it cost. Here is what we saw....valets who not only ignored our car when we pulled up (my husband had to go call one over)... More

First class service from the moment I checked in to the moment I left. The front desk was courteous friendly and quick with check in- the doorman was amazing with taxi service, umbrella in the rain and directions. The restaurants were great for breakfast and the happy hour in the lobby is such a nice touch! Great choice for DC!

My client put me here. I was staying in their smallest room-type and it was tiny but absolutely fine for my needs. The rooms look perky and stylish but a bit tired. Wallpaper seams are lifting. My room (312) had a serious ceiling leak stain showing. The housekeeping in the room was 100% spotless and perfect. I can't say the... More

A family wedding brought us to the ceremony and reception at the Hotel Monaco. This hotel was once the US Post Office and the room in which the wedding took place was once the Postmaster General's office. The decor is gorgeous.....very eclectic. The food was amazing. The hotel rooms were quite small when compared to the "standard" hotel, however this... More

Valet parking, bell hops, front desk all very friendly and helpful. The valet found my house keys in the street and held them for me. I'm sure it is not typical but my room was ready for an 8:00AM checkin.

I travel to the US from the UK on business quite regularly and always stay in a Kimpton hotel. The level of service is just so consistently good - I wouldn't expect to walk into a hotel in the UK and the recdeptist greet me by name immediately but that is what the Manaco delivers. It is in a great... More

My husband and I were here for two nights for a conference. Our room was small, on the 4th floor, but very sunny and large windows. I normally travel with my own coffee press and kettle and almost didn't pack them. Good thing because there is no in room coffee maker. Perhaps they would brought a machine up, I did... More

Thanks for the review Mary R, you're absolutely correct, we would have brought up a coffee maker, yours for the asking. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay (and fear not - the wine hour wine changes every month), and we hope to see you back again soon. Cheers Ed More

Hotel is in a great location - The Metro, shopping, restaurants and the National Portrait Gallery all within extremely easy walking distance. The neighborhood felt very safe - even after dark. There is a CVS within a block, so you can get supplies as necessary quite easily as well. The week that I stayed, it was quite expensive, but it... More

Stayed here for a week earlier this month. Before highlighting some negatives, I will focus on the positives......the staff are excellent (friendly, professional, welcoming, and engaging). The location is brilliant for exploring DC. They have a lovely tradition of serving local wines at 6pm in the reception area to guests. The hotel bar is quite a cool place to hang... More

Well Mark S, I agree about your towels - and Poste is a busy place no doubt - no excuses whatsoever. As for the restrooms, there is nothing we would like more than to be able to add some, but the Monaco is on the National Historic Register, we aren't allowed to add any additional ones - we've tried!
