My husband, dog, and I stayed here over 4th of July weekend and absolutely loved it. First of all, we were so thankful to find a pet-friendly hotel and we could immediately tell that not only were animals allowed to be there, they were welcomed with open arms, treats, and happy hour. It was clear that the staff members liked... More

I have a thing for nice hotels and have stayed in many beautiful ones in my travels. However, this hotel still impresses. It has a more casual vibe than a Ritz or Four Seasons, yet is still beautifully decorated with excellent service. The room was spacious, spotless and very well appointed. People were helpful and friendly. It was an excellent... More

I previously stayed at other Kimpton properties, most notably the Lorien Spa and Hotel in Alexandria, Virginia and was trying to get a reservation there again but they were fully booked. The agent suggested the Monaco and I tentatively accepted it. I checked the website and saw photographs of the decor but still had no idea what to expect. When... More

"Best trip ever!" This was the feeling in the car as we drove home to New Jersey this past Monday after a 5-night stay at the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria. Everyone was over-the-top nice.

More pros than cons for this stay in Alexandria. Pros: 1) fun, funky decoration and spacious room 2) kind staff...although valet guys were perhaps too flirty 3) pretty decent room service food (of course it was overpriced, but that wasn't a surprise. the quality of the food was the surprise) 4) noise factor pretty minimal 5) gorgeous bathroom, big tub,...

This was our 2nd time staying at this hotel, and they are certainly" top notch" in treating BOTH the owner and their pets like royality! They upgraded us to a suite so we were able to spread out with our 3 dogs, and we had a wonderful, restful time in Old Town Alexandria!
