We stayed at the Monaco for one Saturday night, family of 4, double room.. The hallways are somewhat dark but once you entered your room, it was cheerful, colorful and eclectic. The room and bathroom were a nice size. Very roomy for the 4 of us! All we truly cared about are clean and comfy beds and a clean bathroom...

We spent the night of July 4th in Old Town Alexandria (VA) and stayed at the Hotel Monaco. Did not bring my dogs this trip but will next time. They do not charge a supplement for dogs. The rooms and bathrooms were very nice. Perfect location in Old Town.

We spent one night at the Monaco for a fun weekend away. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and helpful and we loved the free wine hour. Our dog loved it too! The location is definitely the best of the three Old Town Kimptons (we stayed at the Lorien over Christmas). There are lots of restaurants, bars and shops...

Service needs improvement, pregistered the two dogs using the online form website suggested so they could prepare, got in the room only one bed and one bowl was in it. Not a big deal, we just had to call front desk to...

Hotel Monaco is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Old Town Alexandria. The staff is very helpful and friendly and we could even bring our dog.

There is a free trolley that goes up and...

This hotel charged my credit card for $29 for snacks from the mini bar. I noticed this a month later on my credit card statement. We didn't even have a key for the mini bar. They removed the charges. However, I was pretty disappointed by this.

We stayed here at the end of April for the Alexandria Garden Week Tour. This was the perfect location for the tour--a very short walk to many of the historic homes. The decor is funky, but in a tasteful way. I think artistic would be a better description. Our room was good sized, and came with the pair of fish...

By no means was this a bad experience, although it started out a bit challenging. For starters we wanted a room on a non-pet floor. None was available. We adjusted, but it took a while to get used to the smell of room deoderizer used to get the doggy smell out of the room. In the elevator, a dog licked...

This is a really nice old hotel with excellent customer service. Its in a great location, but you want an upper floor. The bar can be noisy for for some visitors. We looked into Jackson 20 but found it to be overpriced. That said, there are plenty of good restraunts within a couple of blocks. Another good thing about the...
