My wife and I spent 4 nights in Old Town Alexandria at the Monaco Hotel. Great location - close to the metro, excellent restaurants and shops. Hotel staff was excellent. Valet parking available, but recommend take advantage of the public parking off Pitt St (around the corner from the hotel entrance) as it is much cheaper. Room was very spacious,... More

I booked this hotel for a last minute business trip and was impressed. The hotel was lovely and convenient. It's almost a mile from the metro, but the free trolley runs regularly (although not early mornings). Accommodations were nice. The $1-extra continental breakfast was OK, but not great (fruit and a muffin). I would certainly consider this hotel when visiting... More

We planned to spend several days as tourist in DC but preferred to stay in a quieter place. So we chose Alexandria, in the heart of Old Town, and an easy Metro ride to anywhere we wished to visit. e chose The Monaco based upon its being a Kimpton Hotel, conveniently located, and with excellent rates when we stayed six...

Hotel Monaco's culture is one of customer service, courtesy, and relaxation. We really enjoyed our beautiful room with luxurious bed and chaise. The pool is really clean and has a life guard. Happy hour for adults with free wine takes place at 5pm while kids play games. The hotel was located close to restaurants and shops. Breakfast at Jackson20 was... More

The hotel is located close to Old Town Alexandria. This puts in within easy walking distance of a large number of good restaurants. It is also close to a trolley stop which provides free service to the metro stations. This makes it easy to use the metro to get down town to visit the monuments. Note that the journey via... More

This is the second Kimpton property at which I've stayed (the other on Miami Beach). Great hotel with easy access to Old Town. Nice, well appointed rooms , super friendly and helpful staff, and of course the nightly cocktail hour in the lobby shouldn't be missed. Next time I'm in Old Town I'll definitely stay here.

I brought my kids (ages 11 and 16) to the Monaco for a few days so we could go to DC. The hotel is in a great spot in downtown Alexandria, walkable to many shops and restaurants. A trolley runs every 15 minutes and will take you anywhere on King street or to the metro station. It has a great... More

Stayed for a few days on vacation. Great location (walkable) to the many shops/restaurants in downtown (Old Towne) Alexandria. The trolley passes right by the door to the Metro for hops to Arlington, the Pentagon, or downtown DC. Unique decor and clean, spacious, contemporary rooms -- lots of activity in the lobby -- great for people watching. The staff was... More

We chose this hotel for several reasons. It seemed to be in the best location to wander Old Town. It also had an attached restaurant and they had a happy hour every night with free wine. The location is ideal. It is a few blocks to the riverfront and close to many restaurants and bars. The free trolley will take... More

Stayed for three nights in February 2015. Very nice service, along with clean rooms. Also enjoyed early morning coffee and newspapers in their main lounge area. Excellent beds, good water pressure. Only disappointment was being awakened several times late at night by "happy" residents talking loudly as they returned to their fifth floor rooms- sound really carried well into the... More
