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

I stayed here with two of my daughters to visit their friends in Alexandria for a week. It was a great hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Having lived here for 10 years, we never really he experienced Alexandria by hotel. But this location was great, right near Old Town with a good shot into DC as well. And it... 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

The Monaco is a great example of the Kimpton brand. It boasts a fantastic location right in the heart of Old Town Alexandria which makes walking around town a breeze. Additionally, the hotel is just blocks away from the Metro station, so DC is easily reachable in less than 20 mins. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, my terrace... More

The front desk staff seemed helpful and welcoming, and our room was clean and well-stocked with mini bar items. We had room 312 with a window at the side of the hotel. We woke up to a lot of street noise, as if the windows were open (they weren't). The pool is nice, though it seems like the room is... More
