Stayed at this property during an anniversary trip with my hubby. This hotel is well appointed and comfortable like a small boutique hotel. The complimentary wine hour was a great start to the evening..leading to a great dinner at the hotel restaurant of braised goat and plank salmon. Unfortunately we used our complimentary drink cards an didn't make it out... More

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. Bonus: the towels are actually soft, there are outlets everywhere, good personal care... More

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

We recently stayed at the Monaco for the annual Scottish parade in Old Town Alexandria. The location of this hotel is superb. It is right in the middle of all the action and just a few blocks away from the Potomac. The hotel itself is very nice: well kept, large-ish rooms, nice bathrooms. The staff was very friendly and it... More

Overall we were pleased with our stay. I did expect top notch customer service when in reality it was mediocre. Check in lacked some basics like a smile and an offer of information as to where to park, which key was for what and what direction was the elevator. I called room service for some towels only to have the... More

We were really pleased with the Monaco- the hotel we stay at often in Arlington had raised its room rates to a point where we decided to look elsewhere.

The hotel is in a wonderful location with many shops, restaurants, bars, and nearby waterfront. The lobby is decorated beautifully. The only hiccup we had was slight and almost not worth mentioning.
