Stayed three nights at the Monaco to take my 14 year old to Washington D.C. for a summer trip. They offered a free shuttle van for pick up and drop off at Ronald Reagan International which I used. The shuttle was on time and the drivers were very courteous. Check in was very smooth and the staff were polite and...

This is a beautiful Kimpton Hotel with a large comfortable lobby. We were very happy with our room which was a double double; plenty of space, very clean and beautiful marble bathroom. Two sitting chairs in our room as well. We stayed three nights. We had some issues with service, however. We received a 4am wake up call on Saturday...

We don't travel with a dog (our cats prefer to stay at home) but were surprised at how many guests at the Monaco in Alexandra, VA had dogs, well - behaved dogs at that. I've since read that Alexandria is a very dog-friendly town and that many lodging places accept them. I liked sitting in the comfortable lobby here watching...

We stayed here for 5 nights while visiting Washington DC. The location was great in Old Town Alexandria. Easy walk to tons of restaurants and shopping. CVS was across the street for anything we forgot to bring! It's clean, very comfortable and nice service. Parking is $25 per day, whether you valet or not. That's the only weak point. It's...

We had an attractively furnished double-double with a spacey desk and room to walk about. The good sized bathroom was stocked with soft towels and great make up mirror. As a Kimpton member (no charge) one gets free Internet and a $10 credit at the mini-bar. Parking ($25 per night) located under building. The reception staff was very polite and...

You envision your wedding night as something you will remember for the rest of your life. Well unfortunately we will remember this one for all the wrong reasons. I will not bore you with all the details other than to say we had no air conditioning in our room. The way it was handled by the staff that night was...

My husband and I live in Northern Virginia and we LOVE old town Alexandria! We decided to book the romance package at the Hotel Monaco for a night (on the weekend). Check in: Wonderful!

We really liked this hotel at first glance. It has a lot of style, the rooms are quite nice, and we enjoyed the outdoor courtyard. The location could not be more perfect for old town.
