I used to travel to Alexandria nearly monthly for work and have stayed in my fair share of hotels in the area. The Hotel Monaco is definitely my favorite for the following reasons:
1) Room - Nice clean room that you would expect from a Kimpton Property. Bonus: the towels are actually soft, there are outlets everywhere, good personal care products (including makeup remover), and did I mention clean?
2) Location - It's close enough to the King Street Metro Station, smack in the middle of Old Town, and across the street from a 24 hour CVS. What more can you ask for?
3) Hotel Perks - Free coffee and tea in the morning! Free generous wine reception in the afternoon! Worth hitting up before going out to dinner.
4) Restaurant - Jackson 20 is good restaurant, worth going to even when not staying at the hotel. This also means their room service is better than most.
It's a little new than the Morrison House (which is also a good hotel in Old Town) so if you're deciding between the two, I'd definitely go here for its great location.
