Stayed for three nights in February 2015. Very nice service, along with clean rooms. Also enjoyed early morning coffee and newspapers in their main lounge area. Excellent beds, good water pressure. Only disappointment was being awakened several times late at night by "happy" residents talking loudly as they returned to their fifth floor rooms- sound really carried well into the... More

First, there is a shuttle from DCA. King St. Metro not too far. Second, the hotel looks great. Third, the staff was great. Fourth, room comfortable and cute. Fifth, nice pool. I always love Kimptons and this one did not disappoint. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. And Charlie, the pet ambassador :)

Had a one night biz trip to DC and chose Kimpton Monaco for its location and price as I have enjoyed staying at others in the chain, and they claim to offer free airport shuttle. First issue was that even though I confirmed several times(!) re my flight arrival and that I required shuttle transportation, it didn't turn up when... More

Centrally located in "Olde Towne" Alexandria, this hotel offers exceptional amenities and competitive rates. In addition it welcomes pet dogs and is "dog friendly". The staff were highly informed regarding such details as restaurants, including hotel restaurants, historical sites. local entertainment and waterfront activities. The hotel is physically attractive, featuring Georgian architectural appointments. The rooms were spacious and the beds... More

The lobby is beautiful; exotically decorated, as the hotel's name implies. Our room was small, but beautifully appointed. The wallpaper, carpet, and upholstery look really new and fresh - no wear and tear. The bed was extremely comfortable. When I inquired about the free wine reception, we had missed it, but the desk clerk gave us 2 coupons for free... More

No surprise, beds are very comfortable. The rooms are clean. We had a little accident, breaking a glass. Housekeeping was extremely prompt at arriving and cleaning up the glass. No quick sweep a true clean the floor moment occurred. The décor was also very tasteful. sleep quality should be rated over the allotted 5 stars.

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to DC, and the fact that we could bring our dog with us. There are no breed or size restrictions, and no pet fee. We took advantage of the promotion to upgrade our stay to a Premiere King room. The Fuji soaking tub with jets, complete with bath salts, was a wonderful... More

I rarely give a five star review. This hotel is deserving of that rating. First off... We are big fans of Kimpton. We have stayed at a few and only had a bad experience at one (which, to their credit, Kimpton has resolved), To start- Kimpton is known for their edgy boutique hotel design and this one doesn't disappoint. It's... More

Our weekend getaway at the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria was fabulous. The rooms are well appointed. The service was excellent and the location can't be beat. Walking distance to excellent restaurants, shops, and the waterfront. It was my birthday and we were greeted with a bottle of sparkling wine and a chocolate torte! Definitely will go back! The only complaint... More

March 12, 2015 What a wonderful stay. The staff, (evening) were excellent. Friendly, helpful, patient and kind. You can tell they are proud of their property and that they enjoy their jobs. I enjoyed their impeccable service. The location is awesome. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by. The area is safe. You are able to walk around at night.... More
