This is a great boutique hotel in the heart of Alexandria. Was here for a business meeting- the rooms are clean, comfortable, and modern. The furnishings are very nice and the staff were wonderful. The courtyard outside is inviting and the happy hour was a great way to start my trip. The only downsides (for some) may be that they... More

Dear receptor, Thank you so much for the review, and for your business! I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay (including the complimentary wine hour!). Please accept my apologies for the lack of an alarm clock in your room, that is an oversight on our part as they are standard in all of our guestrooms. We'll make sure... More

We chose this hotel as an alternative to Downtown DC during a business trip. The location is perfect - in the heart of the historic district, lots of shops and little restaurants with great variety of choices. The Saturday market is just across the street. You can take a watertaxi to Georgetown from the nearby waterfront. The hotel is very... More

We stayed here on a trip to DC. Alexandria is a wonderful little town on the water and easy access to the metro gets to you Washington in about 20 minutes. The hotel is on the main street, King Street that has just about everything you could possibly need. Park the car in the hotels garage ($25 per day) and... More

I was expecting a nice romantic date night with my significant other so I decided to book a night at the Monaco since I had seen it many times driving by King Street.

Wanted to show our 7 & 10 year old boys DC for a few days, but didn't want to stay in DC. While there were hiccups (key didn't work/movie service went out) all were resolved almost immediately. And when my husbands car battery died, the staff spent over an hour helping. Room was very clean - and pretty too! Pool... More
