First off, the hotel has a great location. We were traveling with our 4 kids, and wanted to be in/near DC. This is close enough to see everything, but a GREAT neighborhood for food, shopping etc. Service is good to so-so. The biggest issue was when we went to check in. The room was not ready (it was an hour... More

When I learned I had the opportunity to stay at the Hotel Monaco on King Street in Old Town Alexandria for work, I was quite pleased. Their web site is pretty well done and based on what I was seeing, I couldn't wait to experience the place. Upon arrival, the parking garage was full so I was directed to use... More

I love this hotel. Nice people who seem to also enjoy working there. I typically stay ay chain hotels but now when I get a chance to stay at a Kimpton Hotel it is a delight.

This was our first time to Alexandria and the Monaco Alexandria, a Kimpton Hotel. We were presently surprised that the hotel was even nicer looking than it was in all the pictures on Trip Advisor. We received the royal treatment from the beginning of our stay to the end. The staff was awesome, professional, polite, and provided great information of... More

Incredible! Right away I got a great feeling from the web site but was just not 100% sure of staying in Alexandria instead of DC. It seemed so family friendly and fun and colorful! Well I can tell you I will never again stay right in DC for I will stay here for all future trips to the area! It... More

Stayed for 4 nights. The hotel is in a great walkable area of Alexandria. Lots of restaurants close by. The commute to DC via trolley and metro can be a little long depending on connections. Staff were really welcoming, really made an effort to treat guests warmly. I preferred staying in Alexandria over DC, a nice respite from a busy... More

All was well done. Clean. Comfortable, with just the right touch of luxury. Location in Alexandria is convenient to metro to Washington and delightful Alexandria Old Town.

I had a surgery around the time of my birthday this year, so instead of going away like we try to do in January, my husband surprised me and took me to this local hotel for the weekend.

Stayed for 8 days in June 2011 on a business stay. At least three maintenance issues with the room, the parking arrangement is less than adequate for a quality hotel, and the obvious focus on group functions made us question our choice. Staff acted indifferent unless you had cash in your hand. Very nice physical structure, but a pretender to... More
