great location, good value

Would recommend Wed, Aug 19, 2015
Our stay was perfect except for a room key issue at first arrival, but they gave us a slight upgrade in return. It's within walking distance to the Mall attractions & museums. It's also steps from the Verizon Center if you're there to see a game or an event. Metro station is across the street and only 3 stops from Nationals Park. Great restaurants and bars nearby. Excellent staff...valet parking is half off for hybrid cars...bonus! Good value, incredible location.

Would recommend Mon, Aug 10, 2015
Located just up block from Archives and Mall. Walk everywhere. Wine at 5 each night. Bikes to use in lobby. Great way to survey the mall. Breakfast in restaurant great. Room a little small. Check out Luke's Lobster just down the street. Paul's croissants on the way to the Archives are the best. Wonderful!

Comfy short stay

Would recommend Fri, Jul 17, 2015
I was in DC for a workshop and chose the hotel for its proximity to my class. I was not disappointed! Front desk personnel extremely friendly and helpful! Room service was quick and delicious - always love the nice touch of the cookies and infused waters in the afternoon and the wine hour every evening. The only strange thing was that I was told to call room service when I was done with my meal (which I did) but then the tray was left further down the hall next to an armoire where it stayed for two days. Otherwise, I love Kimpton hotels.

From the minute I got out of the car the staff took care of my needs! The bellman and front desk agents were fantastic. The history of the building was I chose to stay there, was a former post office dedicated by President Lincoln!! Easy walk to all of the historic sites.

Nice botique hotel but on the expensive side. Nicely located near the White House and other major monuments within walking distance. A nice addition is the nightly wine hour.

Great Trip

Would recommend Wed, May 27, 2015
We just spent Memorial Day Weekend at Hotel Monaco in DC. The hotel is fabulous, staff courteous, and customer service outstanding. They have a wine reception every evening, and a great restaurant downstairs. The metro in right outside the door. We will definitely be back again!

Relaxing trip

It was a nice trip. Hotel was centrally located which made it easier to find many places to eat in walking distance and to catch sight seeing buses. Staff was very nice and accommodating.

great location but small room

Would not recommend Tue, Mar 24, 2015
The location is superb: very near the National Mall, good restaurants, theater, and shopping. The hotel staff was great and the room was fine, though quite small: bed, desk with one chair, and not much floor space. It was awkward to have the shower and sink separated from the toilet area. So if you're going to spend much time in the room, and if you're going to spend this much money anyway, you might want to spend a bit more and get a Monte Carlo room or one of their suites. Join the hotel's loyalty program to get free wi-fi, but for any other benefits of the program you have to book with the hotel directly, not via a travel site.

Would recommend Fri, Feb 20, 2015
Stayed here with my significant other for a long weekend. The hotel itself was clean, updated, welcoming and located within walking distance of the Mall. The staff however, is exceptional. Wonderful, upbeat attitude. They take the time to fully answer you questions and address your needs total professionals. Will return again next time we are in DC.
