We've been staying at Hotel Monaco for years, and the standard of rooms and services at this charming hotel has not changed. Why we love it: The hotel is in a great location, and within a short walking distance are many restaurants and stores. Monaco's lobby and rooms are always warm and inviting, plus their beds and bedding are really... More

I can't say enough great things about this hotel. First of all I couldn't believe the great deal we got on our 3 night stay.

We visited family over the holidays and stayed here for a few nights. The Lobby had festive decorations for Christmas with a fireplace. The ambiance was warm, fun, and funky (the furniture is a bit worn), but definately clean. We missed the wine receptions, but enjoyed the delicious coffee each morning. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was a... More

I chose the Monaco on my last visit to beautiful Alexandria, VA, for its outstanding location in the middle of Old Town. When my travel partner and I left, the bellman hugged us goodbye. In decades of travel for business in pleasure and managing premium corporate events throughout the country, I have NEVER experienced the level of service this hotel... More

The hotel was intimately nestled in the heart of Old Town. There was access to shops and restaurants all within walking distance. The hotel had a warm "old town" feel along with an eclectic atmosphere. The staff was ready and willing to help with whatever we needed. Our room had robes and a chaise by the window that I thoroughly... More

Why would a hotel lock the mini bar on New Years Eve?

I used to travel to Alexandria nearly monthly for work and have stayed in my fair share of hotels in the area. The Hotel Monaco is definitely my favorite for the following reasons: 1) Room - Nice clean room that you would expect from a Kimpton Property.

This Kimpton is an excellent hotel & an excellent value. They are extraordinarily dog friendly -- a sleeping cushion and a doggie bag with treat and ball are hand-delivered to your room, among other things. (And, if you're allergic to pets, the third floor is off-limits to *all* pets, even goldfish.) The staff is well-trained, good at helping, and fun... More
