Ratings always befuddle me. I don't think of this as a 5-star hotel, but my experience was exactly that--5-star. If your visiting purpose is for Old Town tourism, this location can hardly be beat. It is very accessible and convenient, evenly spaced between the upper and lower blocks of King Street (the main tourist street). (Business travellers might prefer to... More

This is a wonderful hotel with a great staff. You feel important the minute you walk into the lobby. The rooms are nice and you are within walking distance to most everything in Alexandria including Metro. If your not a walker everything is just one free trolley ride away. Once you are at the Metro Washington DC is just a... More

I stayed at the Hotel Monaco while in Alexandria for a friend's wedding and fell in love with the hotel! The staff and service was impeccable, my room was gorgeous, and I felt like a queen. Definitely a bargain for the location and the level of service. Great location in historic Old Town, Alexandria, within walking distance to shopping, restaurants... More

Lovely hotel! Price goes up and down from a nice $130 to some nights being $250. I've stayed many times at this hotel and it's always a lovely evening with lots to do!!! Definitely a nice place to stay to end your night whether you're on vacation or on buisness.

Nice hotel with decent amenities in a good location to explore Old Town Alexandria. Average service. The beds were not comfortable. Did a nice job hosting a wedding.

We stayed here for a wedding. The staff were very accomodating and kind. They allowed us to check in early. The hotel is in a central location right in downtown Alexandria. They have a free shuttle to the airport. The wedding setting was beautiful---a courtyard surrounded by hotel rooms with balconies. The decor is art deco style. We very much... More

I was traveling alone to attend a wedding and was a little nervous doing this all solo. When I arrived at the airport, I called Ahmed for the shuttle to the hotel. This was a wonderful free service the hotel offered. I was too early but he said he did not want me to wait for the next shuttle and... More
