We took a bus tour of DC on the hottest,most humid day of the year, most people were melting by the time we returned to the hotel.The staff was waiting at the door with ice cold towels, I could have kissed the guy that...

I’m a huge fan of the Hotel Monaco, but they definitely weren’t firing on all cylinders. My wife and I felt a sense of malaise among the staff. Though there were no incidents of critical mass, the attention to detail we’ve experienced in the past was missing. The check in process was smooth, and we were upgraded; so like the... More

We recently stayed for four nights. The hotel is only four blocks from the river. There are a lot of restaurants and bars on the lower end of King Street, It is about a 15-20 minute walk to the train station from the hotel. You can ride the free trolley, but it does not begin until around noon each day.... More

First the Bad: Very poor service. We expected much more from Kimpton, the hotel did not live up to our expectations because: 1. Upon check-in employee refused to honor my In-Touch benefits (such as raid the mini bar) because we booked through Priceline. Upon a bit of back-an forth, he pronounced "I don't care, I can give it to you."... More

We have been staying at this location for over twenty years, long before it was totally remodeled by Kimpton into one of their Hotel Monaco properties. The changes made by Kimpton significantly improved the rooms and the lobby layout. We had a terrace room overlooking the courtyard, which can be very entertaining when they host doggy happy hours during the... More

Great hotel -- wonderful location in Old Town Alexandria. Service was fabulous. We had a terrace room which had a nice balcony overlooking their courtyard. Very comfortable beds, good coffee in lobby in morning, 1/2 price parking for hybrids, and quiet rooms. Very clean, good shower pressure, and everyone was friendly. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will return.
