we stayed at the Monaco which is right in the heart of Old town and 4 short blocks to the Potomac River. The area is cool and eclectic. The room was nice. The TV was too small and seemed outdated for such a nice hotel. Service was excellent! We also took a 10 minute boat ride over the Washington D.C.... More

A recent stay at the Hotel Monaco Alexandria had mixed results. The hotel is in a perfect location for visiting the historic area of Alexandria, Virginia. I had always stayed in other areas when visiting D.C. This was my first stay in Alexandria and it did not disappoint, but that's another review. As far as the hotel, Kimpton does a... More

Always stay in Kimpton when I can because of their consistent excellence. LOCATION--nearly perfect. Within walking distance of unlimited restaurants, bars, and shopping. Reasonably located to the metro and Amtrak station. STAFF--everyone was very friendly and responsive, from the bellmen to the maids. DECOR--very modern and clean. ROOM--normal Monaco funkiness, although my room was the smallest hotel room I have... More

It's very loud late at night if your put at the end of hall near the doors. I think it was workers going through with stuff. Witch would be normal if it wasn't late. It's not worth it at all because the hotel is highly price and they also make you pay for parking it in their garage. We paid... More

Stayed two nights on business, including using a meeting room, in July 2014. Hotel is tucked into a charming part of the city and it's easy to walk anywhere. They conveniently provide umbrellas in the closet of each room (which didn't help me when I left it in my room one evening!). This is a pet-friendly hotel but you'd never... More

My family and I traveld to the DC area recently and decided to stay at the Monaco mostly due to the location in the middle of King Street. Having never stayed at a Kimpton property before, we were not sure what to expect, but this turned out to be one of our most favorite hotels we have ever stayed at.... More

First time to Alexandria with the family. Had an absolutely fabulous stay at the Hotel Monaco. Perfect location in the heart of "old town." Easy access to the Mount Vernon Trail system for running/biking. Short metro ride to DC. Great indoor pool for the kids. Great "free wine" happy hour every afternoon for the parents! No complaints at all. Would... More

My husband and I always try to stay at Kimpton locations. They are all lovely and unique, and the service is always excellent. The Monaco in Alexandria was no exception. We stayed in a lovely terrace room (this is a step up, pricewise, from the basic room). We enjoyed the small balcony and had room service deliver breakfast one morning,... More

Even though I was staying on business, my stay was extremely comfortable. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is located in the middle of King Street which is full of history and shopping. Nightly happy hour with wine tasting is also a plus! It is a pet friendly hotel and does not smell like pets at all.... More
