Excellent hotel. Right in the middle of downtown Alexandria. Near all the King Street restaurants. Staff was exceptional. Room was clean and very nicely decorated in the "Hotel Monaco" style. Front desk was very helpful. I will stay hear again.

I stayed at the Monaco for a short business trip. We had a meeting on King Street, so we stayed here to be able to walk to our meeting the next morning. We walked down King Street to eat dinner. There were lots of people walking around, including families with children. I would love to go back to this area... More

Stayed here for two nights while on business in DC. I normally stay at the Madera, but there was no room this time. The Moncao is nice, and well located, and has the usual Kimpton advantages. I did however find the room too small (surprising), and the choice between a stuffy room and a noisy aircon unit right next to... More

I travel a lot with work, and the last few years a hotel has been more of a home, that my home itself, with this in mind, I always try and book into one chain of hotels that I have found always go above and beyond when it comes to service. That chain/brand is Kimpton, not only are their boutique... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a business/pleasure trip to the Washington DC area. Loved the free wine in the evening. Location is great if you want to be in downtown Alexandria, but it does not work well for visiting the museums and monuments in DC. It was a surprisingly quick trip from the airport (Reagan National).

I am loyal to the Kimpton brand because I enjoy the boutique hotels they offer and this one is especially nice. Wonderfully efficient room design and warm and friendly staff. Frequent guests get free wi fi and a $10 mini bar credit. You also can't best this location in Old Town Alexandria right on King Street.

I had heard great things about the Kimpton "boutique" hotels, and had an opportunity to stay at the Monaco Alexandria on a recent business trip. When we arrived just before 6pm, the lobby was packed for the wine happy hour, and the place had a cool, fun vibe. Room was fine, although my bed felt somewhat slanted, and I couldn't... More

I used the hotel valet for my car. When I checked out and asked for my car to be pulled around, I found my window mounted GPS unit was missing, as was the matching charger and mount. My auxiliary cable was also gone, as was my iPhone car charger. It was obvious that someone had plenty of time to root... More
