My wife and I have been big fans of Kimpton hotels for more than 15 years. All of their hotels have a genuinely upscale flair, superb service and represent tremendous value for the price. And if you're a pet owner, this is one of the few chains that sincerely welcomes furry family members. Our border collie mix always feels special at a Kimpton.
Formerly a Holiday Inn, The Monaco has been transformed from a drab, generic facility into one of the nicest and most unique hotels in the DC area. Despite the building having some age on it, the rooms of The Monaco are near-luxury, large (our suite was 800+ sq. ft.!) and designed for comfort. The location on King Street is excellent, within walking distance of the neighborhood's best restaurants and shops. The Potomac is less than 8 blocks away, and DC is only a 15-minute drive away.
And, as with all Kimptons, the service is impeccable. The general manager was extremely responsive and generous with a special request we made before arriving, and everyone from the front desk to the doorman to the maintenance folks were sincerely friendly, polite and eager to help. This is the type of superior service you get at a five-star hotel. Yet the The Monaco costs much less.
We've stayed at almost all of the Kimptons in DC and Alexandria, and love them all. The Monaco in Old Town may be our new favorite, however. Everything about our stay was so close to perfect we can't wait to return.
Highly recommended for business travel, vacationing families and anyone wanting a great place to relax.
