3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great location, really cool decorations (Kimpton usually does), and reasonably priced. Absolutely no pet smell (very pet friendly hotel/chain). Service was very good at times, and negligent at others. Front desk was good, but doorman/valet was ignoring customers frequently. Our room faced King St., so we expected some noise but we could hear casual conversations all day/night. Taxi's line up... More

Located on King Street in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, this clean, kitschy, trendy gem is only a few blocks from the water. The staff welcomed us into a funky reception area and quickly checked us in. The room was small but nicely designed and very comfortable. We chose this hotel, only miles from our home, for a quick...

I booked the Monaco Alexandria on Priceline, not knowing what a gem it is. We were delighted with the service, accomodations, and restaurant, not to mention the fantastic shopping opportunities that were in easy walking distance. The beds and pillows were the best of any hotel.

Anyone staying here without a dog, might be in the minority ... there were quite a few canines of all sizes on premises (and around the town itself)! Even though the hotel was informed at the time of our advance reservation that we were traveling with our dog, the room was not prepared in advance with dog necessities. This posed... More

Super clean, super comfortable in a charming historic building. Ideal location for walking around old town. Friendly attentive staff. Cozy living room (their term for the lobby). Free wine hour for guests. Dog friendly. Be aware of the $27/day parking fee. But the room rates were very reasonable. I will stay here every time I come to Old Town. Pay... More

I was looking for a hotel that was nice, walking distance to local shops, had a nice restaurant and most importantly allowed my 50 pound dog to stay for free! I kept finding there were pet charges between $50 - $150 for your pet to stay. Not only did my dog stay for free, the room was lovely (beautifully decorated)... More

This hotel is perfectly located if you want to easily visit and enjoy Alexandria. You can walk to tons of restaurants, the water front, and it is pretty close to the main high way. My husband and I were in town for a long weekend and this hotel perfectly suited our needs. Everyone was very friendly and there is a... More

A nice hotel - great decor (contemporary design featuring a historic twist given the location), great service (smiling and friendly staff at every corner), and very comfortable. Room clean and quiet (never heard anyone around us), and bed very cozy. Don't mind the dog friendly atmosphere - the town is absolutely dog friendly so if having dogs around isn't your... More

While pricey, like all other Kimpton hotels, the Monaco Alexandria is beautiful, clean and staffed with friendly employees. Dog friendly and the decor is definitely unique and fun, again, in line with the Kimpton Brand. I particularly love the choice of colors. The location is perfectly situated on the main strip of Old Town Alexandria's King St. It's nice being... More

Deep in Old Town Alexandria is a gem of a hotel! The staff was welcoming and helpful. You can take the free trolley from the King Street metro stop. The meeting rooms and my personal room were very comfortable, relaxing, decorating is very eclectic and fun, and dogs are welcome. I had a corner room on the sixth floor and... More
