I was a little skeptical before we arrived at the Monaco as I knew it was a pet friendly hotel. We love pets and have 2 dogs, but I am also aware of the smells and noise that come with them. The hotel was immaculate and the decor was beautiful. I saw many dogs, but didn't smell or hear anything.... More

We recently stayed four nights at this hotel. The pros are it's in the middle of King Street and has lots of choices for restaurants and entertainment. The room was a good size and clean and the hotel is quiet. The prices fluctuate at this hotel so the first days we were there it was reasonable but when we came... More

This was our favorite (by far) hotel that we stayed in on a six city trip. From the eclectic lobby, to the very walkable location, to the friendly staff. The room was large and well appointed. We would definitely stay here and try the other Monaco hotels where we can find them.

We stumbled across this piece of heaven away from home, by accident. Our initial reservation did not book our room selection properly, and after getting in at 4:00am all of the other rooms were booked. Luckily for us, he rebook us at the Monaco. It was a true blessing. Not only was the service attentive, and available at 4:15am, they... More

This is a lovely boutique hotel right in the heart of Old Town. The room was lovely, comfortable & spacious. The staff at the front desk were very polite & helpful. However, I attended an event in one of the ballrooms and it was HOT (I truly don't believe the air conditioning was turned on at all). Several people left... More

Loved the location, loved the ambiance of the rooms, but we were sweltering in the summer heat. Heard from an employee that management made sure rooms had good ac, but stopped there -- so the function we were at was MISERABLE. So, I love them for their location and the rooms. I would NEVER recommend them for an event in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. It's a gorgeous hotel. The room (2 doubles) was spacious and spotless. The AC worked well in the room, a slight bit noisy. The beds were on the firm side but not hard. The pillows were comfortable, but to me they smelled like plastic (kind of like bandaids) but my friend said they smelled... More

My wife and I were visiting Alexandria because our son was stationed nearby. We were pleasantly surprised with all the city had to offer and very pleased that the Monaco was in the middle of everything. The hotel is a short walk from the waterfront and is located on King Street, near the restaurants and the historical sites. The room... More

My husband and I stayed here only 1 night but enjoyed the hotel. Very nice room, great location, nice staff, very clean. WiFi is not free, which we thought was strange for 2015. It was nice seeing people with their pets. I would stay here again, but make WiFi free please
