We stayed at the Monaco Alexandria for four days for a wedding celebration. Right from check in, we had a good experience. The registration was quick and we were in our room within minutes of walking in the front door. We stayed in a king suite. It was a nice sized room-adequate closet and storage space, room to lounge. Modern decor. The bathroom was large and I really enjoyed the high quality shampoo/soap/conditioner.
It is a pet friendly hotel. Although we occassionally heard dogs barking while we were in our room, it wasn't any more disruptive than hearing doors slamming or children crying. There was absolutely no "pet" smells in the hotel.
The location is fabulous. Lots of restaurants/coffee shops and shopping within walking distance. It's about a 10 minute walk to the Metro and maybe a 15 or 20 minute ride down to the Capitol or monuments. Excellent running/biking trails nearby. If you are visiting on a weekend, check out the farmer's market on Saturday morning about a block away--produce, fruit, art, and music.More
