Location location, location!Posted Apr 22, 2015
Really enjoyed this conveniently located hotel on arguably the best street in Alexandria. It might not be as close to the Metro as some of the big name hotels but being closer to the waterfront was nice and there's a bevy of fine dining, pubs and such to keep the entire family happy.

Seriously, no free Wi-fi?Posted Apr 17, 2015
Pros: The decor is great. Beds comfy, nice bedding. Yoga mats.
Cons: Do more to make the customer feel they're not being gouged. Free Wi-fi, a couple bottles of water in the room, a tiny bit of breakfast in the morning
Location: A nice area for walking, eating shopping. 15 minute walk to the metro, about 30 minute ride to DC.
Okay, you can access Wi-fi, but only after becoming a Kimpton member, which involves writing a book and giving up substantial amounts of data about yourself. Data that is apparently worth about $12.99 to Kimpton, since that's what they charge for 24 hours of access. I found it insulting after paying this kind of money for a room, when almost any of the 'lesser' chains would provide it for free. Fortunately there are cafes nearby if you don't have a data plan and need to check a flight. Valet parking was a disaster- very disorganized and we had to go find our own car after waiting on the sidewalk for a long while.

Wonderful HotelPosted Apr 16, 2015
The Monaco is located on Kings Street, the Main Street in Old Town Alexandria. Walk along King Street to wonderful shops and restaurants. A short walk to the waterfront. If you drive into town the hotel has underground parking which wonderful because parking downtown can be difficult.

Great Place to StayPosted Apr 6, 2015
This is an interesting hotel in a great location with lots of restaurnts, shops, and attractions within an easy walk. Although we didn't have our dog with us, we were pleased to see it was pet-friendly, including having pet sitters available.

Birthday StaycationPosted Apr 5, 2015
Pros: Room, decor, hospitality
Cons: It was after 2pm and the parking garage was already full. Luckily, the courthouse parking garage was across the street and was cheaper.
thoroughly enjoyed it. It was my birthday and I came back to my room to a cupcake and bottle of wine. A nice touch! Room was spacious and the bed was huge and comfortable. Ordered room service and dinner (bbq salmon, Mac n cheese, and collard greens) was better than expected.

Great hotel with best Old Town Alexandria locationPosted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: Location! Friendly staff and free vino!
Cons: Heater...the fan was loud and went on and on all night!
Location: Be sure to have at least one meal at the Warehouse and another at the Columbia Firehouse. There are dozens of unique shops and plentiful restaurants
My daughter and I had our first get-away alone since she started her family. We live in Baltimore so the journey was short. I love this hotel and its lovely staff, great wine reception, dog-friendliness. We enjoyed the large pool and sat in front of the reception fire place to warm up and meet interesting guests.

The hotel was located in a convenient area for old town area of Alexandria. it has been updated beautifully and was extremely dog friendly. I was most impressed by the staff, which was welcoming and attentive in every way. A welcome respite after a long drive!
