The hotel is very pleasant with complimentary drinks late afternoon and a good in room menu. Unfortunately at the moment the restaurant is being refurbished so the only menu within the hotel is the room service one. The room is spacious and clean but only a single wardrobe as hanging space. Plenty of drawers though. We arrived yesterday afternoon and... More

Only been here for just over day, room located on 1st floor which I would call a basement. Room clean and well laid out, disadvantaged us that you have to keep curtain closed unless you want people looking down know your room as they walk passed. However this can be slightly offset that the windows are black with dirt and... More

I loved this place. Having just come from NYC and staying in Times Square the size of the room blew me away. Facilities: fantastic, everything you'd need and if you forgot something, they'd bring it to you. They have a cocktail hour where the hotel shouts you a drink in their lobby for guests and staff to mingle (great idea!).... More

We liked everything about this hotel; great location, friendly service, refreshing lemon water at the front desk, complimentary wine and appetizers, complimentary rent-a-bike, comfortable room, and ....a yoga mat:) Smithsonian is just a few minutes walking distance.

Stayed here with a friend so we could attend the Barbra Streisand concert at Verizon Center. Location could not have been more perfect.,,right across the street. Only down side was that their restaurant was under renovation; however, there was a bar set up for drinks after the event and for ordering breakfast in the morning. Would definitely stay there again... More

This attractive hotel benefits from the perfect location for exploring the key tourist sites in Washington DC being immediately opposite the Gallery Place metro station. Based on other reviews, we had requested (in advance by confirmed email) an upper floor room facing a quiet street and this request was honoured upon check-in. Our room was an attractive comfortable & sizeable... More

I am quite sure when this building was a post office it never imagined that some day it would be decked out in the funky style of the Kimpton Monaco. Think Alice in Wonderland meets MadMen. It sounds strange, but it works beautifully. Its location is perfect if you are catching a concert at the Verizon or catching a hop-on,... More

The recently renovated Hotel Monaco in DC is......well, quirky. The aesthetics of the decor are eclectic; not the usual Kimpton classy and unique, but more like scenes from the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland movie. Not bad. Just very very different. The building itself has the lovely bones of an old post office with the original marble floors and stairwells,... More
