Stayed here for two nights on business; exceptional hotel with stunning rooms, great architecture in overall building inside and out; fine restaurant and service. Hard to beat the Hotel Monaco due to location, upscale design and detail, fine rooms and excellent service. I will definitely give it a go next time I am in the nations Capital.

The architecture and history of this building is absolutely spectacular and breath-taking. It makes you feel very lucky to be there. As the Kimpton Hotels always do so well, is that they add style and flair mixed with elegance. The hallways and staircases are magnificent. The halls are wide and the ceiling are high. The rooms are very comfortable and...

Love the hotel. Love the room. The bed is comfortable. Like the amenities. I am giving this a Lower rating totally because of valet parking. The time it takes to have them get your car checked in to checking out. Over 20 minutes to get my car. The valet told me they park four blocks away and they have one...

GSNova thank you for staying the Hotel Monaco Washington DC and for taking the time to complete a TripAdvisor survey. I'm glad you enjoyed our hotel, but am sorry to hear you were inconvenienced on December 1. We did have some logistical issues primarily due to the National Tree Lighting Ceremony and worked very hard in preplanning to insure the...

Our Thanksgiving travel plans were dashed at the last minute, so we pivoted on a dime and found a great rate at the Kimpton Monaco Washington just to get away! I had searched for a resort like hotel to indulge ourselves with rest, relaxation and good food. I wanted to plaster myself in a chaise lounge and have someone bring...

Stayed at the Kimpton over Thanksgiving weekend. The staff was courteous and friendly. The girl I think Lacey is her name was very helpful and told us where to go and what was going on in DC that weekend. The room and here lies the problem! So minute it was ridiculous, the door basically opened to hit the bed and...

Hello Leah S and thanks so much for taking the time to reply. I'm glad Lacey and our front desk team were helpful and courteous. I'm so sorry you didn't like your room. You are correct some of our hotel rooms are larger or smaller than others. It's due to our hotel being on the national historic register and that...

From the moment we checked in, we were amazed by the warmth and promptness of the staff. Every request we made was handled with expedience and professionalism. The rooms are clean and comfortable - even the very small, least expensive rooms. The location is wonderful. There are many sights within walking distance. There is also a metro stop only one...

Kimpton Hotels always offer a pleasant experience, and we were extremely pleased with our stay at this one. We chose the Monaco for this particular visit because of its location across the street from the Smithsonian American Art Museum. It is also convenient for other Washington, D.C., attractions and literally steps from some of the city's finest restaurants. The Monaco's...

PennyW44 thank you for your great comments I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. And that you were able to enjoy the Smithsonian Museum of American Art across the street. It's a fabulous, smaller Smithsonian and stays open later than others. Please don't hesitate to reach out if I can be of any assistance in a future stay.

We wanted a central location and picked this hotel solely on that basis. What a pleasant surprise. The hotel is nicely decorated, the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was small, (we booked based on price), comfortable and clean. No coffeemaker ;-( but the hotel does have a coffee bar in the lobby and wine in the evening,...
