My husband and I stayed one night at the Monaco in October before taking the Auto Train out of Lorton the next day. Brad at check-in was very helpful with restaurant suggestions. The staff we encountered were all very friendly. Valet overnight parking cost $27. The wine hour from 5-6 in the lobby area was a nice touch. From the... More

I wasn't sure what to make of this hotel when we arrived. Our first hour in the hotel was not stellar. There is an indent at the curb in front for the convenience of unloading. There are several luggage carts by the front door. There is staff to help if you are so inclined. They will valet park your car... More

Overall our experience was great. Upon check in we were greeted by a gentlemen who was courteous but did not offer any suggestions such as how breakfast worked, the fact there was a happy hour, anything about the Wifi, etc. Later that day we spoke to another person who was terrific, offering many tips about the hotel and the area....

OK - I didn't book the room until late - so I wound up with a premium room. It was very nice - but more expensive than I would have liked. The location of the hotel is fantastic. Right in the heart of Old Town. Old Town has a great New Year's Eve celebration - so I was staying here... More

We've stayed in a Kimpton Hotel many years ago and really enjoyed it. We booked this one purely for the location as we wanted one night in Old Town before we headed off for the rest of of our vacation. Perhaps it was partially due to the Christmas Season, but WOW oh WOW - what a fabulous reception. Boutique -... More

My husband and I stayed at the Monaco for our anniversary and it was a lovely 2 nights close to home. Alexandria is beautiful at Xmas time and the area is super pet friendly. This hotel takes seriously the care of your pet and you will find bowls and a bed and a treat waiting for the 4-legged friend in... More

My husband and I stayed here during the Scottish Walk weekend in December. We were greeted immediately at the door and by reception, and were offered a free bottle of wine when I provided the secret Kimpton code. Our room was a standard room - very clean, well decorated and smartly designed. The weekend was a bit rainy, so I... More

We stayed in this hotel December 30th. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The staff is very nice and we loved that they were so friendly with our children as well as pets. The room service was great as well. The only complaints I have is that there was dead goldfish in a bowl when we entered the room and... More

In addition to being an excellent hotel in its own right, with friendly, efficient and helpful staff and large, comfortable and beautifully decorated rooms, it is a property that welcomes pets with open arms. This was our second visit, and the acceptance we experience on the first visit was repeated this weekend. Byron, the Skye Terrier, and Pinkie, our Silky,... More

Not only is there a wine hour, but there's also a kids' hour--all free. The rooms are decorated quirky, & guests can even borrow a goldfish during their stay. Bikes are available to borrow. The hotel is right across the street from the longest farmer's market in the U.S. It's about 13 blocks to the subway & train station and... More
