This is one of the most delightful, whimsical, unique hotels I have seen. There is attention to details of guest comfort and enjoyment throughout the hotel. On short notice Meliana [sp?] was able to get reservations for Valentine’s Day at a delightful restaurant. We were in Alexandria for my husband’s surgery for a knee replacement, when we returned the bell...

The rooms and amenities are the highlight of Kimptons, esp this property. I love the decor, robes, healthy snack options, easy-coffee bar in the morning. I'm a sucker for the fuzzy socks in the mini bar. Old Town is at your fingertips, but the hotel restaurant is worth a meal. Definitely my first choice in Alexandria:)

We just spent one night here for a little pre-baby getaway, and wished we had the to stay longer. The hotel is impeccable, well-appointed and in such a great location. We loved it. Even though we travel often, we never use the lobbies of even the most opulent hotels, but the fireplace drew us in. We sat and talked for...

The welcome in the evening by a very friendly lady was very warm and helpful. The guy at the front-desk who handled our check-out the next day was way less friendly. Maybe it were the shaggy clothes I was wearing? The hotel is (apart from some noises by ventilators at the backside of the hotel) a very pleasant place to...

Had a brief 1-night stay at the Monaco in Old Town, and am pleased to report that it is still one of the best hotels around. I've stayed here before, but it was several years ago (October 2009). However, based on that stay I have suggested it to many friends and family members who have traveled to the area, and...
