Hotel- Kimpton Monaco DC (Washington, DC) Date- April 2021 (2 nights) Overall: 5/5. Excellent. This was our first experience at this hotel, and we will definitely be back! Rewards Club Recognition- 5/5. Excellent. Upon arrival we were verbally thanked for our loyalty, and a credit of $20 was offered to be applied to our bill for minibar or restaurant purchases. Our room was upgraded, and as Inner Circle Loyalty members, an amenity was present in our room (bottled water, Perrier water, sprite, pretzels, a dried corn snack, and a small can of pringles). We were also proactively offered a late checkout. We genuinely felt like valued guests at this property. Staff- 5/5. Excellent. Sergio, who checked us into the hotel, was stellar. He was efficient yet thorough, and he was a model for customer engagement. As we observed him and the other reception staff members interact with guests during the evening social hour, we could see their genuine intent to please the hotel guests. Property Appearance & Maintenance- 5/5. Excellent. Exterior- The edifice is in great shape, and the hotel is well branded. Interior- The lobby and hallways were clean, stylish, and interesting to behold. Some of the baseboards in the guest rooms could use cleaned up, but for a historical building, maintenance does a great job. No outstanding maintenance items of substance were evident. Accommodations- 5/5. Excellent. We were assigned a “Premier Monte Carlo Guest room,” and we were happy. The high ceilings really added to the spacious feel of the room. The headboard of the bed was dramatic, as was the large stone lion face above the headboard. The bathroom had a shower/tub combination, which was quite clean. Housekeeping- 5/5. Excellent. The room was immaculately cleaned, and all toiletry items (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap, toilet paper, facial tissues, etc.) were provided in a supply adequate for the length of our stay. The carpet was vacuumed and in good shape. Daily housekeeping service has resumed, and guests who would like their room refreshed can arrange with the front desk so that a housekeeper can enter the room while unoccupied. Pool/Gym- 4/5. Very good. No pool at this property, but the fitness center was available and contained a reasonable set of equipment. Access was provided by the front desk to ensure appropriate limitations on usage during the pandemic. Breakfast/Meal Options- 5/5. Excellent. The Dirty Habit restaurant was open for dinner service during the days of the week while we were present, and a weekend brunch service was available. Morning coffee service and the evening wine hour went smoothly and were appropriately modified for the pandemic (served from the front desk by a gloved representative behind plexiglass barriers). Laundry- not evaluated. A pricing sheet and laundry bag was present in the room, and the pricing was appropriate for a hotel of this category. Computer/Printer/WiFi- 5/5. Average. The WiFi connected easily, and the speed was adequate for smooth streaming of music and video. Other- Pandemic operations were appropriate and included social distancing protocols, sanitizing stations, and appropriate barriers to protect the staff and guests. The staff reliably wore masks over their nose and mouths. The sole drawback we could find with this property was that there is no way to load your belongings into a luggage cart from the street; stairs are required for entry; be mindful that you will have to get your belongings up the stairs in order to get inside the hotel entrance. Although an ADA entrance is present, it is not available for usual guest usage.

Great location for downtown. Very old building, but classy and well kept! Staff was attentive and accommodating. Rooms are smaller. But decorations are very interesting and fit with the hotel. Didn’t go to the bar or restaurant, but it looked nice.

We spent a few days in DC over Spring Break during Covid. The Hotel Monaco wasn’t crowded or busy at all, and yet we were given an awful room. The minuscule room (#246) was was dark and cramped. Our view featured the trash dumpsters (see below) and we could hear employees dumping garbage when we checked in. I’ve been an IHG member for years, Kimptons are my favorite hotels, I even held my wedding at the Kimpton Eventi in NYC and I would NOT recommend this one. The room was so small we could barely fit our two open suitcases into it. There is no privacy as the toilet is about 4 feet from the foot of the bed. That said, the bed was comfortable and the room well decorated. The front desk staff isn’t particularly friendly and the happy hour is from 4-5pm - I don’t know many people who start drinking at 4:00 but they do here. Valet parking is outrageously overpriced. I’ve stayed at the Madison Hotel and the Georgetown Inn, and I would recommend either of those over this hotel. If you want a downtown hotel, look elsewhere. I’m sure you can find better.

Very cool hotel, we loved our room. The hotel is located centrally and the staff was very happy to welcome us when arrived. The room space was more big than expected, design items and everything was very clean.

My husband and I stayed here for our 10 year anniversary. The hotel is absolutely beautiful with such character. Our room was amazing!!!! The staff was very accommodating and helped with loaning a straightener for my hair since mine was forgotten. They text us prior to our arrival to determine if we had any needs. The restaurant/bar was fabulous. We had drinks there on one night & watched an athletic event on tv and had breakfast the next morning. I tried the rice crispy coated French toast with coffee butter....a must to try! Our 2nd floor room (which is actually on the first floor) was extremely quiet. The location of this hotel was perfect for us. It was less than 10 minutes to the White House, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, etc. It is also approximately 10 minutes from the Ronald Reagan airport. However, we flew into Dulles which is approximately 45 minutes away. I highly recommend staying here and hope to be able to visit again!!!
