Staff were very friendly, helpful and did their best to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The location is great for exploring Alexandria, getting into DC, or down the parkway to Mt Vernon. They provide free coffee and news papers in the morning to start you day off right and from 5 to 6:30 they have an open wine... More

We had a deluxe room with two double beds. From the second floor, our view was of the street, which was perfectly acceptable. The room was very pleasant and well maintained. Fixtures seemed recent and everything was kept quite clean. The bathroom shampoo/conditioner/bodywash were in large pump bottles, which were a very nice touch. There was no fear of running... More

Overall a nice hotel. The staff at the front desk were friendly and the lobby was quite large. Elevators were quick and room service was good. My room was a bit small but nicely appointed. The hotel is located on King Street right in the heart of Old Town. It's built on the site of one of the first Union... More

Upon entering our room next to the tv was a note with coloring books and crayons for our boys along with a pet fish. how absolutely thoughtful! Per usual the room was very clean, upscale and just lovely. We are loyal to Kimpton, but each hotel we stay at has its own twist. Alexandria reminded us of old town. So... More

We have stayed in a Queen room twice now and it is always a great experience. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. Location is perfect if you want to explore Old Town Alexandria during your stay or take the free trolley to the King St metro to explore DC. Great hotel for couples

Very accommodating staff. They will take care of every detail, Even if you forgot it, they will get it. Overnight valet parking $29/night though. The only thing that kept this from being five stars was that there was not enough drawer space, no dressers to put you clothes. You have to live out of your suitcase. Baring that. Everyone bent...

Old Town Alexandria is the colonial heart of the nation's capital. This is George Washington's city. The Monaco is in the heart of the city. It should be outfitted in the attire of colonial America to fit the location. The service is exemplary. There are many exemplary restaurants in walking distance from this hotel. On Saturday there is a farmers... More

We spent 2 days at this hotel for a wedding. The hotel is very interesting with a sort of Arab meets Riviera décor. We had a very large king room facing the street. The street is busy during the day, but settled down after 10 pm so that noise is not a big issue, Our main issue is the fact... More
