The Hotel Monaco Alexandria is a beautiful property and was the perfect choice for our girls weekend accommodations. The decor in the lobby and throughout the hotel as well as the rooms is modern and the colors are bright and fresh . The Location is perfect and many places within walking distance. We had a lovely room on the third floor. We were very close to the elevators and just wish that guests would be a little more respectful when walking down hallways, as loud voices travel. Other than that, our room was perfect and well kept. The staff was very friendly and accommodating except for the lifeguard on duty at the pool, she could use some much better people skills and work on her friendliness. That was our only con during our stay. I look forward to returning to this property on my next trip.
