We just returned from a great stay at Hotel Monaco in Old Town Alexandria. I booked this trip through Snique Away and was a little nervous, but everything was perfect. The hotel is in a great location of Old Town and the hotel is a wondeful boutique hotel and did not have that impersonal chain feel. Room was clean, nicely... More

Dear p0rter, Thanks so much for the great feedback about your recent experience at our hotel. I'm particularly grateful for the comments about the look and feel of the property and our wonderful community. As you mentioned, the city owned parking garages are a great option. For those guests that may need the car before they reopen in the morning,... More

When my husband and I decided we wanted to try the highly-rated Restaurant Eve in Alexandria for Valentine's Day, we thought it would be more fun to stay overnight in Old Town rather than driving home to Silver Spring afterward. That way we could really savor the wine with our food! We found the Hotel Monaco online and were intrigued... More

The Hotel Monaco makes you feel like you are staying at a world class hotel without world class prices. The location is wonderful with all the charm of Old Town right outside your hotel door. As members of Kimpton's rewards program we were notified of a weekend special at the Hotel Monaco which made our winter weekend get-away a greater... More

Just spent a night at this property in Olde Town Alexandria... The hotel is located in a great location right in the heart of Olde Town close to everything. We had high expectations due to previous stays at the Hotel Monaco in DC. It did not take long to be disappointed. The front desk staff at check in did not... More

Dear smnlefty, While I'm happy you didn't reach strike three, I'd like to apologize for what was clearly an off night. It's our goal to ensure that every guest preference is followed up on. If anything keeps us from doing that you should get an explanation, apology and options in that order. That's our job and we clearly didn't deliver... More

After a long day of work I got stuck in Alexandria due to a cancelled flight and snow. I knew there was a Kimpton hotel in the area so I called and in less than 5 minutes got a reservation for that evening at the Monaco. They also connected me to a cab company that actually answered the phone (I... More

Welove the Kimpton chain and always choose to stay in a Kimpton when we can. the design is always modern and the interiour decorater adds all the right touches. The wine reception is always grat, always good wines at the kimpton and nice to meet other guests and their dogs. The rooms are large amd beds very comfortable.
