My husband and I stayed at this hotel in mid October. The reservations were made several months ahead of time for the wedding we were attending in Old Town. Check-in went extremely well and the front desk staff were extremely friendly. We arrived several hours earlier than the check-in time, however, our room was ready and we were able to... More

We stayed at this hotel on Halloween to be close to downtown for a Fleetwood Mac concert. We had to work late and forgot to print the tickets so I called the front desk and spoke to Rachel, she was lovely and happy to print the tickets for me after I emailed them to her. We had a great check... More

We travel often and staying at this Kimpton Hotel was by far one of our favorite spots! The hotel was centrally located, and close to the metro for us to travel into DC for day trips. (I recommend taking the free trolley to the station.) The scent in the lobby, design, decor, service, wine nights, and value were all wonderful.... More

This is a great hotel in the heart of Alexandria, within walking distance to everywhere you want to go. The room was larger than we expected and was very nicely decorated. The rate was very reasonable for our 3 night stay. Next time we make it back to DC area, we will be staying at the Monaco.

My wife and I wanted to spend a weekend in the heart of Old Town Alexandria - and this hotel fit the bill perfectly.

We stayed here while attending a family wedding. We thought the hotel was great. The rooms were an adequate size, very clean, and had a nice decor. The hotel location can't be beat. It's in the middle of Old Town and convenient to restaurants, the waterfront and metro. We will definitely return to this hotel on our next trip to... More

This is a nice hotel, quality service and offering some pleasing amenities (wine hour) and clean rooms with quality linens. Our room however was small, no chair other than the desk and not big enough for two. Further when we checked in we found it at the back of the hotel and the extreme end of the hall.
