We enjoyed a quick night in November to celebrate our anniversary. We have stayed here before and love The Hotel Monaco. It was a busy weekend, but we were still able to grab a seat for the free happy hour in the lobby. I was disappointed to be woken up several times in the middle of the night by drunk...

As the other reviewer said, they changed owners and we had to make sure we got the deal that we booked months ago. The happy hour and 'in-room goldfish crackers' and other amenities being taken away stinks. We should've gotten a better rate since they took away some of the services. The restaurant staff and hotel staff were very nice...

We booked the Hotel Monaco, a Kimpton hotel, months ahead of New Year's Eve and were looking forward to a great NYE in Alexandria. When we arrived we saw the signage was off the hotel and little niceties that we are used to seeing at a Kimpton hotel were gone - the front desk informed us that earlier in the...

Missing furniture, lack of basic services, confused and rude staff I can't recommend this hotel due to the subpar service. It appears that the hotel is undergoing or has undergone a change of management and the result is a very confused, rude, and all-round disappointing staff. For example, while checking out, I overheard a guest come back and tell the...

Had a fantastic stay at the Monaco. The hotel is beautiful and my dog was even warmly welcomed. Its so nice to stay somewhere that they make it easy for you to bring the pup. Checking in and out was a breeze and the room was so nice and comfortable. Always someone at the front door of the hotel to...

Clean comfortable room, located near everything old town, good service, nice bed, I will return. I elected to park my car in the lot across the street in 'Court House' parking, saves about $10 per day.

Hotel Monaco in Alexandria has been our "go-to" hotel whenever we need a fun little getaway with the our kids and dog (we live in DC and there's an indoor pool so great winter break getaway!). Unfortunately, I learned over the weekend that it will no longer be a Kimpton hotel as of Tuesday (12/13)! I called the hotel and...

The lobby is eclectic with a cool chicness about it. There were so many interesting things to look at. I sat in a chair off to the side and was able to literally people watch. Before long, I felt transformed as if I were in a movie. It's hard to describe but so cool as you watched people walk through...
