Can't say enough good things about this boutique hotel! It is our new fav place to stay when we come to DC! Cozy and beautifully decorated (and well kept), and in the heart of the famous historic Old Town district-- we did not touch our car all weekend and could walk to fabulous sights, stores and the river. Stayed here... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Monaco for a weekend getaway and enjoyed everything about this hotel! The complimentary drinks during the evening social hour, the extra touches in the rooms (fun robes, nice toiletries, iPod dock, boutique decor), and the relaxing indoor pool add a tremendous amount of value to the stay. Every member of the staff... More

Check out their website -the hotel is excactly as described. The rooms were cozy and clean. I did not check out the pool, so I can't provide information about that. Otherwise, it was a great hotel. If you plan on using the King Street Metro station, it is a bit of a haul to hoof it, but it is a... More

Despite asking for a baby cot at the time of booking and well in advance of arrival it was still not there when we arrived at 10:30pm with a jet-lagged baby after a trans-atlantic flight. Many phone calls to reception later we were told they were "looking for it" It eventually arrived just before midnight. The restaurant did not open... More

Dear Dubliner2007, We love babies too! I'm truly sorry to read about the difficult experience you had during a recent stay and assure you that kids are as much a focus for our hotel as pets. We'll ensure that our Guest Services team has an adequate inventory of cribs and playpens and knows where they are. I know from personal... More

Booked reservations on their very user-friendly website. Greeted at the curb by very courteous staff. Happened to arrive during the wine reception. Was handed a glass of wine before I even checked in. Check in was smooth, staff was very friendly & helpful. Room was great. Only negative was dry air at night. Asked for a humidifer but they all...

We arrived on Friday evening to a staff that seemed to know us and had been waiting for us all day. Check in was incredibly quick and our young man that took us to our room was engaging. He was from Morocco and after our brief encounter with him describing his home country we decided that would be a place... More

Stayed for two nights last weekend for a visit with family nearby. We find the Kimpton hotels to be comfortable and a large step above the "chains" without having to pay 5 start hotel prices. There is an eclectic feel and they do allow pets, which was our first consideration but we ended up leaving the puppy with friends so... More

Easy to get to from Reagan Airport. Shuttle runs for free every hour. Call to schedule. Rooms are always fabulous! Roomy, clean and wonderfully designed. Free internet if you become a Kimpton’s Reward member which is super easy. Wine hosted social in the lobby every evening. Great indoor pool. Location Location Location can't be beat.
