Stayed here on business, great location to DCA, Metro and dining. The staff was at the top of service levels and the room small but very nicely done. This is a great place to stay in the DC area!

We planned a trip to Washington DC with friends. We stayed with relatives while in DC, but wanted to spend our last day in Old Alexandria touring. We booked the Monaco Alexandria because of its location and were not disappointed. The hotel, with beautifully appointed rooms,very attentive and friendly staff, made our last day just the perfect end to the... More

I travel to DC frequently and have never had a better hotel experience than at Kimpton's Hotel Monaco in Old Town, Alexandria. I can't say enough positive about it. Right down to Mabel the goldfish! I'll be back!

I stayed here for a wedding, and was quite taken by the decor. The lobby has dark wood floors and teal walls, with comfortable velvet furniture scattered around. The rooms have geometric wallpaper, with a similar geometric carpet, comfortable beds in white linens, and marble bathrooms. All pretty chic! Plus, there are Aveda products in the bathroom. Our room overlooked... More

Stayed at the Monaco for one night at the end of a long weekend in the DC area. Let me start by saying that before I even checked in, the service I received from this hotel was amazing. I was trying to plan a special evening for a birthday dinner and everyone I was in contact with at the Monaco... More

I consider myself very fortunate to have paid a very reasonable amount to be given a chance to stay in a beautiful hotel in this side of town. Its a uniquely designed hotel with shocking but delightful colors on its walls, in unison with odd shapes and patterns strewn all over the place, from the wall decors, paintings, sketches, elevator...

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for 4 days and it was wonderful. The service from the staff was excellent. The hotel has a restaurant attached to the hotel, that serves awesome food. We ate breakfast there twice, and enjoyed sitting outside bistro style enjoying the friendly people in the neighborhood. The hotel is dog friendly to all... More

We were two of the very fortunate soles to have gotten married during Hurricane Irene!!! After months and months of planning the “perfect wedding”, all our plans were thrown out the window just days before our big event when we heard how bad Hurricane Irene was expected to be. The Friday before our wedding, 1/3 of our guests cancelled. The... More

Perfect place to retreat to after a long day of work in the DC center. Wonderful location to walk the historic downtown area and great location to catch the Free Trolley. The staff was extremely helpful in making my commute to the Metro simple and stress free every morning. Definitely make sure you attend the free wine hour every night--... More
