This building dates from 1834 and you can tell from the bones of the building - quirky shapes from the pressed metal ceilings and arched-roofed rooms, and solid, solid walls and doors. Grand marble staircases and intricate soft furnishings set the mood of a Grand Hotel. Converted into a hotel circa 2001, there have been recent renovations and upgrades in... More

This historic hotel has great "bones" and is near the National Mall, the Convention Center, and neighbors with the Verizon Center, the National Portrait Gallery, Chinatown, and the International Spy Museum. Great location for shopping, dining, and nightlife scenes. I had a Queen Deluxe room and the amenities were everything that I needed to make my stay comfortable. Staff was... More

Traveled 2 months ago for 2 nights for some sightseeing after a business trip. Gotta love that lemon/lime flavored water in the lobby! Some bikes in the lobby I assume you can borrow, in a good part of town pretty much walking distance to all the major sights. Mini bar well stocked, free wifi through kimpton rewards. Great staff, welcoming,... More

First the good: I'm currently sitting in my comfortable bed in our Mediterranean Suite room. So comfy bed-check! Room character-check! Lots of architectural details that make you realize you are in an old building (designed by same architect that designed National Art Gallery across the street). Beautiful soaking tub-check. Large shower-check. Sofa bed horribly uncomfortable for our daughter so had... More

Good morning Laura D! I am so sorry to hear that we really dropped the ball during your stay. Service is one of our main concerns and certainly something that we pride ourselves on, so this was very disappointing to read. I am glad to hear that you loved your room, though!

Once found myself in DC and stayed at the Monaco. First time back in a while. Rooms and common area remodel is great. The historic building is the draw plus the location in Penn Quarter and near Verizon Center. Hospitality is always top notch. Unfortunately Poste the restaurant is no more but it looks like they are creating a very... More

Excellent, friendly, knowledgeable staff who care about your stay and getting to know you; beautifully renovated rooms; wall-tall windows that allow gorgeous sunshine to flood in; comfortable beds; great location -- funky, historical, sometimes chic and sometimes eclectic. Hotel Monaco is located inside the historic General Post Office, designed by architect Robert Mills who also designed the Washington Monument. The... More

I never thought I would give a hotel with no lobby bar such a strong recommendation! (I think it was being remodeled?) This property is a little larger and old school than the Kimptons in L.A. and San Diego, but still had that eclectic charm. The staff went above and beyond at every turn - especially Kelly and Sarah. They... More

My fiancé and I arrived in DC by airplane around 8 am. We were pretty tired and hoped that we might be able to check in although we knew the probability was low seeing as how early it was. To our surprise they did have a room available but it was on the first floor which is partially underground. We... More
