Only good things can be said about our anniversary/vacation experience at this hotel. We had a beautifully decorated room with a small balcony overlooking the courtyard - wonderful for sipping coffee on cool mornings. The room itself was larger than most DC area hotel rooms and was furnished somewhat eclectically. The bed and linens were very comfortable. The bathroom was large, but not overly convenient for two people trying to get dressed at the same time (only one sink and a small vanity).
Our room was located directly next to the ice machine. I was worried about noise, but after 4 nights, I can honestly say our room was very quiet with no ice machine or hallway noise.
The wine hour was very pleasant! We had a chance to chat with others also on vacation and were able to compare notes about restaurants and local attractions.
The staff was wonderful! We were especially impressed with the bell staff and valet parking. Also, even though the hotel was booked solid the entire time we were there, the front desk did everything possible to make our anniversary a special one!
The hotel's location is excellent - we were right in the middle of everything Old Town has to offer! Just minutes walking distance to the water front and historical attractions, great restaurants all around, and even a fantastic farmer's market is located right on the corner on Saturday mornings.
Overall, the trip was excellent and we will stay at Hotel Monaco during future trips in the area.
