This is a wonderful hotel!! From the room to the restaurant to its location it is amazing. You can take advantage of the King Street trolley and it is located in Old Town in the best part several blocks from the waterfront. It also has...wait for it....free happy hour from 5-6pm every night including weekends! I will absolutely, definitely return... More

I booked this hotel because of location. Location really is the best thing this hotel has going for it. I don't know why people were complaining of too many door men - because we got no assistance ever - we had to handle our own bags, open our own door and find out own taxis. I don't mind doing those... More

What a delightful experience. We met up with family from all over the country for a wedding and this hotel could not have handled the events nor the guests any better. We were a bit surprised at the number of dogs in the lobby at different so if you are not a dog lover this is not a good fit.... More

Stayed at the Monaco for a site visit for a meeting. I loved the ambience of this hotel and the rooms were huge and beautifully decorated. The air conditioning was a little noisey but not so much that you it kept you up at night. The bathtub is deep, clean and wonderful (huge bathroom - double doors a nice touch)... More

I stayed here for three nights with my kids ages 6,6, and 10. The room was beautifully decorated and roomy. We even got a pet fish during our stay that the kids really enjoyed. They especially liked "Kids hour" which they had in the lobby every evening with lots of board games and Wii. They even let the kids continue... More

Dear nunu102, Thank you for joining us and your kind feedback about our hotel. I'm glad you enjoyed our signature 'Kids Hour'. We launched it earlier this spring and we couldn't be happier with the results. We think everyone should feel welcome in a 4 star boutique hotel, especially families and kids! Thanks again for staying with us and we... More

My husband and I and our two daughters spent 5 days at the hotel Monaco in July and had a wonderful time. It's in a great location where you can walk to the waterfront, walk to many restaurants and shops and there always seemed to be something going on at the market square across the street farmers market, musical performances,...

I chose this hotel because of the many great reviews that I read because I wanted a fabulous place to spend our honeymoon. First off, Alexandria (the area) is such a beautiful place. So many shops and restaurants. Beautiful people and quaint buildings. Fabulous. On to our stay: As you enter the Monaco, you feel like you've transitioned into another... More

This hotel was everything you could imagine. The staff was always smiling and the decor was amazing. This was one time when I think the hotel exceeded the information on the internet. The photos are spot on and you feel like a million bucks when you are there!

The hotel is a older than anticipated. Our room was nice, yet on the small side. The bed was very nice and the bathroom was large. There had been a storm the night before and several floors had to be shut down due to "flooding of the rooms". We stayed on the fourth floor for 3 nights and there were... More

My husband and I managed to have two days alone to celebrate our 16th anniversary. The staff at the Monaco did a fantastic job of making our stay exactly what we had hoped for! (2nd time in 9 years we have been without our kids, so we were really hoping for a romantic, relaxing getaway!) The room was very comfortable... More
