We stayed at the hotel Monaco for four nights in late July 2014. What a nice place if you want to experience Old Town Alexandria. Perfectly centered in the restaurant and shopping area of the historic district, this charming historic hotel was clean, quiet, and convenient. Everything you could want is within walking distance and if not, there is a free trolley that runs up and down King Street to get you to the Metro or the waterfront. We walked to the Metro two days to go into Washington DC to see the Monuments and museums. It was six or seven blocks to the Metro, but a pleasant walk with shops and eateries all along the way. One day we took the free bicycles provided by the hotel down a most pleasant and scenic trail along the Potomac River to Mt Vernon. It was a 18 mile round trip and not for the weak or out of shape, but well worth the aches the next day. If I were returning to Alexandria I would definitely stay at the Monaco again.
