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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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,... More

The location is near ideal. Walking distance to major attractions, Metro and great eats. The hotel staff is what really makes this place shine. Everyone I dealt with, from the reservationists, the car valet , the front desk, even the person who poured my wine during the free "cocktail" hour---everyone was kind, courteous and smart!

Simply an elegant experience in the heart of Washington DC. No over-the-top glitz, no pretense. Excellent, professional, polite service from the moment we arrived at the valet. Ultra-comfortable beds and linen. Cozy, inviting rooms spare no amenity. All staff are eager and prepared to serve guest's needs from an extra pillow or two, to organizing safe transportation. No surprise, extra... More
