My wife and I just returned from our trip to NYC and DC and enjoyed our stay at Monaco. We stayed 2 nights and found the room to be clean and comfortable. We took advantage of the nightly wine reception and snacks and enjoyed our wine on the patio. We took the DC Metro to Kings Street/Alexandria and took the... More

Hotel Monaco Alexandria provided a great business trip experience from valet parking and delivering my bags to the room so I could get to my business appointment on time to providing a $10 minibar voucher and free wifi with stash membership. Missed having coffee in my room however a lovely complimentary coffee is provided in the lobby in the mornings.

I took my best friend on a getaway for her 40th birthday. We arrived on a Thursday and left on a Tuesday. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. We never took advantage of the 'wine meet and greet' or the pool and gym, which were big selling points for me when I was researching where to stay. We did... More

The Hotel Monaco in Alexandria is situated right in the heart of historic old town Alexandria. We were there for my niece's wedding in June, and it was really the perfect venue for this event. We stayed two nights, and everything was wonderful. The hotel itself is really pretty, from the lobby to the rooms themselves. Some wedding guests even... More

Check in and meet the friendly and professional staff, then enjoy your wine at happy hour. We had a large and very clean single room with a comfortable king bed. It was outfitted with very attractive furniture, a well stocked mini-bar and a safe. The Wi-Fi was very good and temperature control for the room was very consistent. Before your... More

We visited the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria for three nights in early October. It was our first visit to the DC area, as well as our first time traveling with our golden retriever (and my first roadtrip). I did a ton of research ahead of time regarding traveling with your dog and what to expect, as well as what services... More

Beautiful place in middle of everything. parking very expensive $27 a day +tax room tax excessive. Glad we went to Alexandria and took water taxi to monuments but not again. Love the place and location. Plenty of places to eat some quite reasonable.

A great location if your aim is to stay in Alexandria and don't care that the closest DC Metro System station is nowhere near the hotel. (Think taxi service here people.) Our room was basically well appointed but a tad on the small side; for the "best available rate" of almost $200 per night, we got a double bed and... More

Having become annoyed with the Hilton Alexandrias policy of charging for internet and closing their pool I thought I would try the Monaco and was very pleased. At the bottom of Kings Street it is in the heart of all the attractions of Old Town. The rooms are on the small side but quirky and comfortable although there was no... More

I have stayed here previously and had a reasonable experience, however I have learned that this property is guest beware - if you check in after 6 pm, you will probably be given a postage stamp size room. I am currently still here, my room is 5 steps (15 FT) by 4 steps (13 FT?), and that is generous as... More
