The Monaco Alexandria is an exceptional experience all on it's own. It's situated in Old Town Alexandria which is already a plus, but the hotel has its own wonderful dining area, a courtyard with evening special events, a morning courtesy coffee time, an evening courtesy wine hour and many room amenities. Our room had a private balcony with a table and two comfortable chairs that overlooked the courtyard. The staff is wonderful and helpful. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms and community areas are always clean and well kept. An extra bonus is that the hotel is located in a perfect place to do anything you would like for entertainment, touring or dining. A perfect spot to stay.
