The Hotel Monaco has a primo location in Old Town Alexandria, and meets all the standards of a Kimpton property - beautiful rooms, wine happy hour, etc.. What really sets this property apart from others are the staff. They go above and beyond to help guests with any special needs or requests. We experienced this with both the front desk...

We just hosted five couples (and a baby!) at the Monaco for a family event and this hotel was the perfect location with everything we needed. Our room had a balcony that was so pleasant to enjoy in the morning and evening. Room service was fantastic and surprisingly affordable - breakfast for the two of us was less then it...

Had a very nice stay over Memorial Day weekend at the Monaco Alexandria. Staff were friendly. Daily wine reception was quite nice (and I enjoyed the dog watching in the lobby, wine glass in hand). Funky decor that runs throughout common areas and the room itself. I was happy with my room. Had a goldfish waiting for me in the...

This was my wife and I's first trip to the DC area, it was great. A lot of that had to do with the accommodations. Staying in Alexandria was really nice and quiet yet there was enough around to see and do, along with many great restaurants close by. The only negatives, and they weren't severe, was the walk to...

The location is ideal - walking distance to great restaurants, shops and the waterfront area. It is an easy 10-15 minute drive (or subway ride) to Washington DC. Parking is easy and convenient. The room was great - we even had a goldfish! The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgable about restaurants. It is both pet friendly and kid friendly,...

My wife and I stayed here 3 nights to attend a reception following a wedding in Alexandria. Our room at the hotel was spacious and nicely decorated. (Our room was on the floor where dogs are allowed, but we heard no noise from any dogs.) One problem we did experience was that the maid service was slow. The reception was...

I stayed two nights at this hotel. I always try to stay at a Kimpton hotel because I like the room decor and overall style and feeling. I also like their environmental friendly practices as well as their complimentary wine happy hour. It really makes a guest feel welcome! My stay at the Monaco in Alexandria was most pleasant. Nicely...

Location is great in the middle of old town Alexandria. Staff is very professional and helpful. Well run hotel. The rooms with a balcony are very nice--you can relax on your balcony, overlooking the courtyard. Kimpton frequent stay program is free and provides free Internet.

- One of my requirements is that a place be interesting style/feel-wise, NOT generic. This place was very cool looking, sort of Gatsby-like or old Hollywood Glam, but not over-the-top kitschy at all. Beautiful. - Location couldn't be more perfect. You can easily walk down to the water, walk all through Alexandria, wall to very cool nearby parks, and next...
