Last week I had the opportunity to stay at this property. It was my first time at a Kimpton Hotel, but it will not be my last! Everything about this place was fabulous, starting with the decor. Bright colors, interesting fixtures, comfortable furnishings. My room had a king bed, a "fainting couch", big desk, great bathroom amenities, but the best... More

the hotel is cute and clean, rooms are quite small but well appointed. Bathroom in the room is lovely. Good location in old town. But... I'm now sitting in the room waiting for breakfast that I ordered 98 minutes ago!!! Bad enough that it occurred, especially since I was told I'd get my order "within 45 minutes" but when I... More

As is typical with Kimpton properties, this hotel is very pleasing and in a great location (on King St. in the heart of Old Town, amidst the restaurants and shops. The rooms are large and comfortable, mattresses good. The hotel has a garage underground, but you pay extra to use it. Amenities include free wine in the lobby daily from... More

Dear Mike B, Thank you for coming back! And for taking the time to share your comments here. I'm sure the designer didn't place those ottomans at the end of the bed to cause pain I promise! We can remove them for your next stay if you like, and help create a clearer path for those late night strolls! Thank... More

We flew in to Reagan International and this hotel was just a short $20.00 (including tip) cab ride away. They provide a free shuttle, but somehow we missed it, we were told to just hop in a cab and we'd be reimbursed, I was handed a crisp twenty as soon as I walked in. The lobby is very pretty with...

Great location and friendly staff, but we definitely had some glitches during our stay. When we checked in, we were given a room on the fifth floor that was already occupied. Had to traipse back down to the lobby to receive a new room assignment and happily the front desk staff handled the issue very well by providing us with... More

We had a fantastic one night getaway at Monaco. We had never stayed at a Klimpton property but will certainly stay at some in the future! We were surprised by free passes for breakfast, and half off parking since we drive a hybrid. The wine hour also included some great hors d'oeurves. The in-room yoga mat and free fitness programming... More

Stayed here with gals as a weekend getaway and had a fabulous time. The hotel is charming with friendly staff and attention to details. We loved the roaring fireplace as the snow fell outside and the lobby happy hour was convivial with gratis wine and salty snacks. We had dinner and brunch next door at Jackson 20 and have only...

I stayed here twice and I will definitely be back. The hotel is beautiful inside I loved the way it's designed. Most importantly it is in the best possible location in Alexandria and it's very easy to get to DC from here. I'll definitely be back! The indoor pool is also a very nice touch. Best hotel in Alexandria.

Stayed a couple of nights here gratis my boyfriend's company. I toured around while he sat in meetings. We started the day with the wonderful selection of teas (and coffee) in the eclectic but cozy lobby. Wine is served with salty snacks in the late afternoon. And you can bring your dog! I love that!
