We stayed at the Monaco last year on a driving trip south with our two small dogs. The experience for us (and the dogs) was just great, so we booked an overnight stay this year on our way to Georgia. Service personnel are friendly and helpful, the room was beautiful and very clearn, enhanced by a dog pillow and a water bowl in place when we arrived. We always stay at pet friendly Kimpton when we can. They often are the best hotels around, be they in Washington,, Miami or San Francisco. We highly recommend this hotel group and the Monaco.
