Great vacation!!!

From the first minute we were impressed by the friendly staff and the fantastic location. Very clean room. Fitness room with good and new equipment. Continental breakfast - plate with fruits ( can be boring after few days). Wine tasting - every day at 5 PM. Homemade cookies and good tea.

You can't beat the location for walking to the museums/capitol. The room was gorgeous but it might be time for a new mattresses. Kid friendly and the staff was great. The complimentary happy hour was aggressive but located in the hotel is Poste. This restaurant was a great place to relax and unwind. Also, proximity to Chinatown, restaurants, theaters, movies, bowling and shopping make this the must place to stay.

A great way to start the day is around the corner at Lincolns waffel house. Sit at the bar, enjoy the crowd and we loved the blueberry pancakes.

did not meet the description on this site

This site characterized the room as being 525 square feet in size and having a "separate living area". The room was small enough that the king sized bed took up nearly all of it (i.e., nowhere near 525 square feet) and the "separate living area" was a small desk and single office chair, both hemmed in by walls on three sides. A lot of noise from the hallway intruded into the room at night.

A weekend Away!

The town was fully booked due to Cherry Blossom season. Our first night we had a basement queen sized room which was small with basement type windows. I went to the front desk and requested a room change if possible. They accommodated us almost immediately on the top floor with a much roomier queen sized space and called us to make sure that we were happy with our new room and also gave us complimentary round of drinks at the bar restaurant. The service alone would make us return and the downtown location was phenomenal!

Perfect location

Great choice to stay at for a Verizon Center event. When leaving the concert, everyone was pouring into the subway and parking garage and we had a short stroll 200 yards. Very accessible to the Metro.

Fab Hotel in the heart of Penn Quarter

Hotel Monaco is a fun and funky renovation of monumental postal building in the heart of DC. Close to a large number of restaurants, the Metro, and several Smithsonian museums.

The Shakespeare Theatre is one block away on 7th St, and Ford's Theatre is a few blocks in the other direction. Take in a play if you can; both are lovely and historic venues.

Great Location Quiet Room

Excellent location for the activities we had planned. The hotel staff was helpful and understanding when we asked for a different room (I wanted a bathtub and the first room, very large, only had a large shower). We were disappointed that the bar was so crowded we could not find a place to get a light meal .... but I guess that is a sign of how popular the hotel has become. I would recommend this hotel -- especially if you can get a bargain rate.
