I have been staying at this property for more than 20 years since it was a Holiday Inn and you absolutely can't beat the location and the ability to walk to numerous attractions. I actually work in Old Town and stayed the night for my wife's recent birthday. Kimpton Hotels did a complete upgrade several years ago and transformed the... More

Paid for an upgrade and received a double upgrade to the Mediterranean spa suite. It is a corner room of good size. There is not a coffee maker in the room. The fitness facility is lacking; only two treadmills, two ellipticals, and some dumbbells. Service was mostly great except having to request linens for the pull-out sofa three times.

It's well appointed, very clean and comfortable, and the staff is very courteous and friendly. This place is very convenient when visiting DC. There is a trolley that you can catch right outside the hotel and it can take you to the Metro station which then can get you to almost anywhere you want to go in DC. On the... More

Hotel Monaco is a beautifully designed hotel. Kudos to the decorators and carpet designers. Loved the subtlety of the historical elements in the designs yet keeping things modern and trendy were noticed. The rooms were very nicely done. Nice comfortable beds and very clean. Nice touch with the fish bowl in the room. Kid friendly (under 10) with special areas... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights in Old Town Alexandria at the Monaco Hotel. Great location - close to the metro, excellent restaurants and shops. Hotel staff was excellent. Valet parking available, but recommend take advantage of the public parking off Pitt St (around the corner from the hotel entrance) as it is much cheaper. Room was very spacious,... More

I booked this hotel for a last minute business trip and was impressed. The hotel was lovely and convenient. It's almost a mile from the metro, but the free trolley runs regularly (although not early mornings). Accommodations were nice. The $1-extra continental breakfast was OK, but not great (fruit and a muffin). I would certainly consider this hotel when visiting... More

We planned to spend several days as tourist in DC but preferred to stay in a quieter place. So we chose Alexandria, in the heart of Old Town, and an easy Metro ride to anywhere we wished to visit. e chose The Monaco based upon its being a Kimpton Hotel, conveniently located, and with excellent rates when we stayed six...

Hotel Monaco's culture is one of customer service, courtesy, and relaxation. We really enjoyed our beautiful room with luxurious bed and chaise. The pool is really clean and has a life guard. Happy hour for adults with free wine takes place at 5pm while kids play games. The hotel was located close to restaurants and shops. Breakfast at Jackson20 was... More

The hotel is located close to Old Town Alexandria. This puts in within easy walking distance of a large number of good restaurants. It is also close to a trolley stop which provides free service to the metro stations. This makes it easy to use the metro to get down town to visit the monuments. Note that the journey via... More
