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

I arrived Sunday at 1pm but my room wasn’t ready (shucks). I returned at 3 and checked in. I had booked a Monte Carlo Terrace room via Snique Away but I didn’t see a terrace. I called down and they said oh yeah, we don’t have any left. I said I booked this room over a month ago. They basically... More

I loved the location in the heart of Old Towne, adjacent to a great restaurant, Eve (make a reservation!). I loved the warmth, genuine hospitality, and artfulness of the hotel. The room was so comfortable. The only drawback was the noisy heater, so much so that I turned it off to sleep (and the room got chilly as it was... More

My friend and I have been staying at this hotel since before it was a Kimpton. The Kimpton remodel was excellent and the rooms are lovely with nice marble baths.

Drove up for a "girls night out" on a Friday for my birthday. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the staff friendly. Upon arriving to the room there was a tray of petite dessserts and champagne to start off our evening. It was great!!

I was surprised that the hotel is newly built as I expected it to be refurbished given that it is in Old Town Alexandria. The location is perfect - right near the courthouse which is in the center of town. The rate was very reasonable given that it is in a high tourist area and close to Washiington, DC. The... More
