Good location, rooms were well appointed, pleasant staff but thin walls as we could hear everything in the next room (TV on all night).Loved seeing all the dog "guests." Close to the water and shopping.

The room was comfortable, attractively decorated, clean as can be! The staff was helpful and the location is perfect for exploring historic Alexandria or going in to Washington, D.C. I ordered breakfast from room service and everything was delicious and well-prepared. The hotel atmosphere was friendly.

The hotel is low key and refined,but comfortable and friendly. An excellent choice if you want to be in the heart of old town Alexandria. Convenient to numerous restaurants, shops, and all that makes Alexandria a special place. Check-in, park your car, and walk to everything. The staff at both the hotel and the restaurant are also excellent. If you... More

Hotel Monaco is a boutique hotel located in Old Town Alexandria. This was my first stay in Kimpton Hotel property. The hotel is just blocks from the Alexandria waterfront as well as the historic Gadsby’s Tavern. The location is excellent with tons of shops and restaurants in any direction. Your first impression is the eclectic, sapphire blue lobby. The lobby... More

My wife and I visited Alexandria and stayed here based on the recommendations of others on Trip Advisor. I agree with those views. This is a very nice hotel. It is in a great location and walking distance to all of the small shops along King Street. We had a suite with a balcony. The furnishings were comfortable leaning toward... More

Overall stay was excellent and would definitely stay there again. It was our first stay at a Kimpton and would certainly look at staying in one of their hotels again. Only downside was... More

The rooms are amazing and the bed is so comfortable!!! The service at the front desk was impeccable and they matched the room to my needs. If you can get a corner room, well worth it. This is an absolute stay again for me or for friends. The decor is too cool - hip and eclectic.

Centrally located a few blocks from the harbour on King St., which is the main street that runs from the Harbour to the Washington Masonic Temple. You can catch the free King Street Trolley that runs up and down King Street. The hotel is very nice and clean. We have stayed there omany times and bring our dog with us.... More
