Loved this hotel! The service was outstanding and the room was unique and everything we wanted. The location was walkable to Old Town and the free trolley got us to the metro in minutes. Of course the complimentary wine tasting was a plus. We met interesting people both nights of our visit. Stay here when going to Alexandria!

I stayed here for a week last year and I'm sure glad that this is the place I picked! It couldn't be anymore central in Old Town and the Metro is a pleasant 15 minute walk up the street (or the free trolly stops outside). The room was really big with a spacious bathroom to match and a quirky decor...

They thought of everything at this hotel. Bright umbrellas (yes, I was excited about the umbrellas), cool towels and cucumber water as you walk in, a fun wine hour, a well-stocked mini-bar, and fun robes--this hotel was awesome! The rooms are well-appointed and decorated in a manner that is so much more exciting than your normal hotel. The staff was...

I'm a loyal Kimpton Hotel customer and was pleased that the quality of the Monaco was as expected. The hotel is super cute and the rooms and bathrooms spacious and well appointed. Given the prime location of this hotel, I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone interested in staying in the Alexandria or greater DC area....

Spacious room, decorated with whimsy and great taste -- one of the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in.

This was our second visit. Great room and the staff is very friendly, do not think we have missed a wine social since day one.

“So colorful and lively, and the hotel’s King Street location really puts you in the thick of it, next to the Metro Station and an easy walk from area offices, local restaurant, and bar scene. My room was cute and comfortable - fun and bright decor, super comfortable bed, and wonderful bathtub (loved the jacuzzi jets after a long run!)....

Great location, pleasant service and rooms. Restaurant Jackson 20 is terrific. Hotel is dog-friendly, but seems to have no provision for dogs that aren't hotel-friendly. We had a yapster across the hall who barked night and day. Repeated complaints changed nothing.
