Normally I find Kimpton hotels to be among the best out there. Great atmosphere's, attentive staff, and generally really good service. Unfortunately, this property did not hit on any of these. First, upon arrival the valet was sitting inside reading the paper and did not come out to get the car as I was checking in. Second, upon checking in... More

I can’t say enough good things about this hotel! I was due to fly home from Reagan National but after hours of weather delays, the airline told me they couldn’t get me home until the following morning. I quickly looked up Kimpton’s Last Minute Offers for their properties in the DC/Alexandria area and found a great rate for the Monaco-Alexandria.... More

This hotel is elegantly appointed, but in the most playful way - it's use of fun prints, patterns and colors everywhere you look is a refreshing welcome change from the "usual" chain hotels. The rooms are spacious, immaculately clean and filled with designer touches in the bedding fabrics, wall coverings and color palate. The bathroom is large and lush also.... More

We stayed at the Monaco during our recent visit to Washington DC. We loved the location of this hotel in Alexandria. Close to so many great shops and restaurants. Easy walk to the metro to get to DC. The staff was super-friendly from the moment we arrived until the time of our departure. The valet service staff was very helpful.... More

THe Monaco Alexandria is first class in every way. The front desk staff went out of their way to make sure we were satisfied with our room. Parking is a little pricey, but due to the snow and ice on the streets, it was the best option. The location is right in the center of the historic old town. Planning... More

Very pleasant hotel, friendly staff, located right in the center of old town. The room was very comfortable and quiet. I liked how the décor reflected the historic nature of the area, and the striking use of color in the lobby was so refreshingly different! Lots of great restaurants and interesting shops within a few blocks, plus near the waterfront.

This is a charming hotel in a great location. The lobby and the rooms have the extra personality and fun flavor of a Kimpton without scrimping on the amenities. The room was lovely, the cleaning staff excellent and the location is unbeatable. Be sure and join the in-touch loyalty program for the bennies like a $10 credit to the mini... More

I live in DC and my boyfriend and I chose to get out to Alexandria for a night staycation. When we first arrived and checked-in, Calvin at the front desk was super efficient, helpful, and friendly. Got upgraded from a queen to a king and got two free cocktail coupons. Awesome. The room was quite big for a hotel, but... More
