Stayed here for three nights with my husband for a business conference in DC. Loved the location -- easy to walk to a myriad of restaurants and shopping. Our room was great -- had a terrance but too cold to sit out there. We never returned in time for the wine reception but I had tried it in other Kimptons....

Dear drlearn, Thank you for staying with us while your husband was in the area on business, and for the kind words about our location and the guestroom. I'm very dissapointed that we didn't follow through on your requests to fix the shower however, certainly that was a huge inconvenience for you and I sincerely apologize. Please reach out to...

We stayed five nights for a combined business fun trip. The service from the airport shuttle through check-in and room service was very good. Slightly on the expensive side but overall I would rate it as very good. Good size room. Decor is a mix of old and new. Some minor maintenance issues with the shower......maybe just didnt fit right...

We stayed for four nights with our two kids and had a wonderful time. The hotel is lovely and the service is amazing. The staff, in particular Jennifer, went out of their way to make us feel like elite guests. This is the third Kimpton hotel I've stayed at, and frankly, I'm hooked and will try to stay at Kimpton...

Spent 2 nights at the hotel, with a room on the 2nd floor. Extremely 'funky' decor, good size and all the amenities you would need. Room, hotel and area was extremely quiet late at night, so you should be guaranteed a peaceful sleep. The location of the hotel is also good, with the option of many places to eat within...

Stayed during a family visit to Alexandria and truly enjoyed the Monaco. Every staff person was incredibly gracious and unfailingly helpful, the room was lovely, and while cozier than some, it had a large closet, plenty of drawers for unpacking clothes, and a nicely appointed bathroom. The hotel restaurant has fine fare (we were there for dinner and a breakfast),...

Hotel rooms in DC are outrageously priced. You will find a better value looking in Arlington or Alexandria, VA. I stumbled on this property while searching for a room when the conference rooms I was attending at the JW Marriott in DC was sold out. While not located downtown DC, it is only a $20-25 dollar cab ride, or a...

Rooms are quite nice. Front desk staff is outstanding. It's definitely a boutique hotel, but not over the top. I was there on business (and have been several times). Rooms are spacious enough to get work done, WiFi is good (and free for In Touch members).
