Hotel is a nice old hotel in "old town" Alexandria. Rooms are clean, well done with comfortable design and bed. The hotel sponsors a wine tasting party in the lobby area every evening around 5. Has a pool but no hot tub. Got bill messed up and charged for daily parking even though no car. Similar billing issues happened to... More

Such a great hotel, pricey but you get what you pay for: a superb location within walking distance of attractions and a clean, luxurious hotel. I've stayed at just about every hotel in Old town Alexandria for business and the Monaco is by far the best. One of the few hotels in Old Town that have great customer service.

The Kimpton was very nice, but what I appreciated the most was the service, specially for my kids ;) I couldn't believe it when complementary cookies and milk (u know how kids love room service) were brought to our room for our kids+ movie night & popcorn + tv by the pool+ juice n chips...really 1st hotel were it felt...

Awesome hotel. Great customer service. The morning room service could have been warmer but it was good food from Jackson 20. Clean hotel and wonderful decor. The wine hour from 5-6pm was great to have when we arrived from the airport. Cute town. Great getaway.

From the staff to the beds , all your needs and wants are comfortably managed at the property. This is my 5th stay there and from straying a couple of times there is no reason to choose another hotel right smack in the middle of Old Town with an easy walk to the waterfront of the Potomac.

We stay at this hotel every year for the Thanksgiving weekend. We look for a Kimpton hotel wherever we go as they are a little different from other chains. Every afternoon they have a free wine get-together for the guests. The hotel is very convenient to Washington, DC and is only minutes to Reagan Airport. They have free pick-up and... More

The Monaco performed superbly - across the board. As for the wedding, the overall arrangement, food, atmosphere, service were excellent. Central location in Old Town allowed guests to park their cars and enjoy what the town has to offer. The hotel itself was reasonably priced; the staff friendly; the room spacious and well maintained. Now that I've joined the Kimpton... More

My husband, son and I stay at this hotel every time we go to Alexandria, VA. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. The town itself offers great shops and eating establishment. We always try a different place every time we go. Can't wait to go back.

Booked in 'a bundle' with US Airways flights, for convenience to King Street. Free shuttle for Reagan National Airport, and less than one block to the free King Street Trolley to the King Street metro. VERY convenient for shopping and dining along King Street.

The Hotel Monaco in Old Town is a pleasure. The people are friendly and helpful. Always a smile. The hotel is also pet friendly. It's fun to see people with their dogs in tow. The whole town is pet friendly. They have coffee and tea in the am and wine in the pm at the hotel.
