Stayed for two nights over new years in a suite after a lovely stay at the Helix in DC. In that we have a disabled son and a dog with us we wanted to check out of the DC hotel and check right in at the Monaco, drop the dog off in the room and bring our children for lunch.... More

We stayed at the Hotel Monaco once before with our pup, and it was fabulous. We decided to stay again with our pup and with other friends on New Year's Eve. It was a delightful stay. Rooms are well appointed, clean, and attractive. Very friendly reception, quiet, and a central location for enjoying the Old Town Alexandria area. I would... More

After a pleasurable stay at the Kimpton Madera Hotel on DuPont Circle in D.C. late last summer, I chose to select another Kimpton for our stay for Christmas in Alexandria, where our daughter now lives. The Monaco was superb in all ways. I booked a few months in advance, directly with the hotel's internet site, and got what I consider... More

If your looking for a first class stay at a first class hotel without spending your last dollar, the Hotel Monaco is the place. My family stayed at this hotel during the holidays while visiting family. A great stay mostly because of an outstanding staff but also a great location. We came from Indiana and had a very relaxing stay.

Now I should start off saying that I would not normally be able to afford to stay at such a nice place, but booking a great deal through Sniqueaway made it possible-it was my Christmas present to myself and boyfriend. That being said, I've never felt so spoiled at such a luxurious location. This was my first time to Alexandria,... More

We chose the Hotel Monaco because we were traveling with our two little Papillons (dogs). This hotel is fabulous. Upscale, modern decor, immaculate and friendly, friendly staff. Because we are pet lovers, being able to bring our dogs was the main draw, however, with or without our dogs, we will stay here again. We spent Christmas in Alexandria and had... More
