Location superb. Room size and functionality superb for 7 night stay. Room has good lighting, chair seating, nice size desk, good AC/heat system, black out drapes, and clean linens. Only place for improvement might be in updating mattresses before long. Major praise for a staff that showed integrity in promptly and fairly resolving a couple of problems. Their integrity and...

What an amazing, fun and funky hotel! Awesome location - we were right in the middle of the city and had a range of restaurants, monuments and museums right on our doorstep. We had bikes with us but everything was so close we just walked. White house is only a few blocks away. Hotel has an amazing history to it...

We recently visited this hotel for a wedding, and wow, what a cool venue! Did have a chance to see the rooms, but the amenities were great for an older building. The outdoor bar/back patio also made for the perfect spot for the after-party.

Try to get a room away from the function rooms. It can be noisy, so not great as a business hotel. The set up of the building means there's little division between residents and revellers. There are frequently large rowdy groups roaming the corridors. Facilities ok, although not the best Monaco I've experienced. A few of the finishing touches are...

Awesome location, very easy to stroll around to sightsee, dine out or enjoy a glass of wine. The restaurant downstairs is tasty and the staff was lovely. The patio seating is outstanding. The building is very historic (I believe it was once an old post office) so the rooms are configured to fit the space. You'll feel the balance between...

The Hotel Monaco is perfectly situated - across the street from the Verizon Center, the Smithsonian Art Museum and the subway line. Beautiful historic building and the front desk staff is great (we were shocked that our room was not only ready, but we were able to access it almost 5 hours before normal check-in - thank you so much...

This Hotel was very historic and the location was fabulous! It was just a short walk to great sites & restaurants. The room was huge and quiet. We ordered room service the very first night and was disappointed because the food was ice cold. If we hadn't been so tired from traveling we could have gotten much better at many...

This hotel has a fantastic location in DC right on 7th street. It is easily accessible to Regan as well as to the Capital Building. The staff was fantastic, friendly and helpful.
