I had originally booked the Kimpton Lorien and due to a broken fax machine they never received my reservation. (Extremely unprofessional.) I was stuck with nowhere to go and it was Inauguration weekend but this hotel had a room for me. I was already en route and got a little worried after reading recent reviews. Well, my stay was not...

We made our reservations the minute we found out we had tickets to the Inauguration. We were surprised to get a reservation. After reading all the reviews since the changeover, I was a little worried. We had a wonderful experience we arrived at 9am and were able to check in and our room was ready. The room was fine, the...

We were so disappointed with our room. There was a blood stain a dark red stain (potentially blood) the size of a quarter on the headboard. The bathroom was recently remodeled but not complete...the shower head was disconnected from the wall and the both faucet almost fell off. The picture frames were splintered and cracked. We paid $300/night for the...

Stayed here, unwittingly, the first night after the hotel transitioned from Kimpton to Marriott. Hard to review given that the room seemed the same (nice), but, as one would imagine, the front desk was a disaster.

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...

Location! Location! Location! I stayed in the Kimpton Hotel Monaco, Alexandria, VA for 3 nights in early December . The hotel is well located and in old Town Alexandria.

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...
