Though our four-night stay at the Hotel Monaco Alexandria got off to a bumpy start, I can say without hesitation that the facility’s management addressed all our concerns professionally and quickly. Since we wanted some outside space, we reserved and pre-paid for an upgraded Monte Carlo room months in advance with a balcony and courtyard view. Unfortunately we were told... More

We had a multi-day reservation for a large one-bedroom suite and when I called with a few questions about the size of the room and the configuration for a crib, the staff was dismissive and unable to give me a straight answer. To my question about the size of the room, the young women said, "what do you mean, like... More

This is really nice hotel in Old Town Alexandria. I arrived early, and they graciously let me check in at 10:00 am. I lost my room key not once, but twice, and they cheerfully replaced it both times. It's the little things that make you want to come back to a hotel. The room itself was nice, with a spacious... More

I came to Alexandria for a business conference and booked the Hotel Monaco for my stay. The staff was very courteous and helped me get checked into my room early so I could set out to see the city. Room service was very helpful when I requested items that I needed. Cleanliness, friendliness and comfort were all above and beyond,... More

I visited this hotel based upon a promotion from Wyndham. Initially I was advised the promotion was to simply visit Wyndham's locations and see their property. Only after I gave Wyndham my credit card was it disclosed the promotion was a time share presentation. In short, it was a bait and switch. I decided to go to Alexandria and visit... More

Dear dougandivy, Thank you for staying with us, and for providing your feedback here.

This is my favorite kimpton hotel in the DC area, I've stayed at most of them. Hotel Monaco Alexandria is the best and I've stayed here several times! Why?

From the driver who picked us up at the airport to the cleaning staff, this is the friendliest hotel. Loved the amenities, the restaurant/bar. Great location and they make everything so easy for you. Pet friendly and will dog sit if needed.
