My wife and I have stayed at the Hotel Monaco on five different trips to Alexandria. It is close to where our daughter and son-in-law live. It is right in the middle of Old Town Alexandria on King Street, close to several restaurants, historical sights and the waterfront (Potomac River). The staff has always made us feel very welcomed and... More

We arrived at midnight due to Thanksgiving travel, and we were greeted by a full staff of friendly and courtesy professionals. We were traveling with two children and two dogs, who were welcomed with a Thanksgiving book, "Pardon That Turkey" and dog biscuits -- in respective order. The next day breakfast at their restaurant, Jackson 20, was delicious! Our group... More

The Monaco Hotel consistently delivers a first class experience right down to the smallest detail. I planned a surprise birthday stay for my sweetheart prior to her travel to Europe. From the moment of arrival as the bellman enthusiastically greeted her with smiling birthday tidings, to the moment of our departure, it was the most wonderful experience in every detail.... More

This was the most accommodating hotel I have ever been in. Every request was met with - yes or absolutely. All the staff were very friendly and the hotel was beautiful with lots of nice extra special touches. The bed was very comfortable and I found our stay to be very peaceful. Great for dog lovers.

I am a seasoned business traveler (U.S. primarily), and I couldn't possibly do the Hotel Monaco Alexandria justice, so you should just check it out for yourself. Every single member of the staff genuinely seems to find joy in exceeding guests' expectations, (they certainly did mine on my recent stay), the hotel is beautiful and unique, and the location is...

First time we ever stayed in a luxury hotel that allows barking dogs. We did call down to the front desk once about it, then we sort of gave up and got used to it. But it's not what we'd expect from such a fancy place. Also, they charge $24 a night for parking! And $10 a night for wi-fi.... More

Dear DnD27, We do love dogs, but not when they impact our guest in such a negative manner! I'd like to apologize the the issue you encountered during your recent stay. We certainly should have asked the dog's owner to get more involved, or taken other actions to make you comfortable. We would never want anyone to have to get... More

I really enjoyed my recent stay at this hotel. The staff were friendly and informative. The hotel was clean and comfortable. My grandchildren really enjoyed swimming in the pool. We enjoyed the town and the close proximity to Washington. In the afternoon there was a social wine gathering in the lobby. That was nice because we got to meet other... More

A Kimpton Hotel is an experience like no other. I've stayed at the Hotel Monaco three times in the past two years, and each has been genuinely comfortable and satisfying. The location is prime, a mere five blocks from the river, so walking out the door allows you ample access to fine dining and shopping. Take the trolley from the... More
