The room was very clean and, like the rest of the chain, eclectic. The front desk folks never smiled and were not "welcoming." I had booked a special package, they did not deliver any of it properly until I called. Champagne with no glasses, forgot the sweets package completely and only one breakfast vice the ordered two. But the room... More

The accommodations were excellent! Upon entering the building, every staff member showed genuine concern for our stay and well being. The staff, on every occasion, wanted to ensure that everything that was needed or required from us was addressed and immediately taken care of. The professional staff was courteous and provided prompt and exceptional service. This made for a truly... More

I love Kimpton hotels, having stayed in several in the DC area. The decor and ambiance are unmatched. We arrived on a cold evening to find a fire in the fireplace and a complimentary wine reception in the lobby. The staff provided a wagon for my 2 young children to ride in. They were thrilled! Throughout our stay the staff... More

We came to Alexandria for First Night and the fireworks show, and we were not disappointed! Got a tremendous last-minute rate at the Monaco, and they've done just wonderful things with the property. Made me proud to be a Virginian and show off the wonderful city of Alexandria to my fiancee. The check-in was fantastic. The morning room service was... More

Have stayed here several times before, staff at the front desk were very personable and warmly welcoming when I checked in. All in all a great place, but a couple of cautions... Was in Rm 541, lovely room, but the balcony was pretty much unusable because of the ventilation intake on one wall. Don't know if that applies to all... More

Dear Tracy98110, Thanks for your feedback about your recent stay at our hotel. I wanted to let you know that I ran up to room 541 to look at that balcony as well as some of our other '41' rooms. The intake on the balcony of 541 is for the air handler that serves the 5th floor corridor temperature. It's... More

I recently had a fantastic stay at the Monaco in Alexandria! The staff was incredible, the room spacious and well-decorated, and the ambiance provided a nice escape from the business side of my trip. The location of the Monaco is perfect - it's quite close to shops, restaurants, sights, etc. I'll definitely be staying there again!

2 adults, 2 kids: 11 & 13, the suite with sleeper couch and king size bed in bedroom worked out well. Only thing I could say is that there is only 1 bathroom and it is located in the bedroom so our early riser kind of woke everyone up but that is far from a deal breaker. The in house... More

I have stayed in several other Kimptons and liked them. Free valet parking, free wireless, free coffee in the morning and free wine in the evening plus Aveda products all at a good price--what's not to like? This one is even better than most. We stayed in a King room with a balcony overlooking the courtyard and, with the exception... More
