This is a wonderful boutique hotel within walking distance to the Duke Street metro in Old Town Alexandria. The rooms are small and cozy, but nicely decorated and furnished. I was surprised by the overall layout of the property once inside. I highly recommend it as an alternative to the more expensive hotels just up the street. Parking may be... More

This is a little upscale moderate hotel to stay at in Old Town Alexandria. The location is great and if you are staying there without a car there are plenty of places to walk to eat and shop.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in mid October. The reservations were made several months ahead of time for the wedding we were attending in Old Town.

We stayed at this hotel on Halloween to be close to downtown for a Fleetwood Mac concert.

We travel often and staying at this Kimpton Hotel was by far one of our favorite spots! The hotel was centrally located, and close to the metro for us to travel into DC for day trips.

This is a great hotel in the heart of Alexandria, within walking distance to everywhere you want to go. The room was larger than we expected and was very nicely decorated. The rate was very reasonable for our 3 night stay. Next time we make it back to DC area, we will be staying at the Monaco.
