A super clean, nice, and friendly hotel. I love the Kimpton credo of reducing resources and using organic products. They also have the coolest, funkiest deco. The staff are helpful and sincere. Also, you can't beat the membership rewards. I will not stay anywhere else, as nothing can compare.

We are Kimpton regulars and actually checked this hotel out the last time we were in town, when we stayed at the Lorien (another Kimpton hotel up the street). The lobby is a little dark, but it's funky and the decor is very interesting. Service at the desk was quick and we were up to our room within minutes. As... More

Excellent customer service where you are greeted with a smile. A simple good morning, good evening and please let us know if you need anything, Business traveling for over 20 years this is the best by far. Clean, great rates, exceptional service.

We had an amazing stay at this Hotel. Everyone from the doormen, to front desk to the waitstaff at the attached restaurant were amazing. We were traveling with a 9 year old, 11 year old and 4 month old puppy. They found a dog sitting service for us - and if it they could not - the doorman was going... More

We were here for a girls' weekend and loved it. The staff was young, professional and eager to please. The decor was fun and elegant and I loved the modern touches, the happy hour for adults (and another for kids). We will be looking at Kimpton Hotels first from now on.

For off season prices this hotel was good but I never would have wanted to pay peak prices for what it was. It was clean enough but the bathroom could have been cleaner. The outlet in the bathroom didn't work and it wasn't just a case of pressing the reset button the the GFI outlet either. I told the woman... More

This is our third stay at the Monaco. We love it. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, especially Thomas at the desk. We like the rooms and the amenities offered. The restaurant is great for dinner and for breakfast. We feel like this is our 'home away from home' in Alexandria.

The Hotel Monaco served as the perfect launching pad to explore DC. It is convenient to shopping and great restaurants in Old Town. Also very convenient to Metro stop. The staff was frindly and helpful at every turn. We especially enjoyed the wine hour! We will definately stay here again. Hopefully, we'll return very soon!

The Monaco is another example of a great Kimpton Hotel. It is clear that they care about making you feel warm, welcome, and comfortable. The rooms are beautiful. The staff happy and helpful. Location is just a couple blocks from the water.
