Good DC hotel

The Monaco is a revision of the classic Greek Revival Central Post office of the first part of the 19th century. It is right across the street from the National Portrait Gallery and only about 2 blocks from the National Archives. The Capitol is about a 15 minute walk. The old building is nicely adapted; the room is nice, not large and not elaborate, but perfectly adequate.

Fantastic location for all activities

Wonderful stay from our room being ready early to our departure. Gracious and attentive staff with many amenities from wine tasting, wi-fi, and fabulous on site restaurant. Well appointed and exceptionally comfortable room. Across the street from the National Portrait Gallery and less than 4 blocks from the National Mall and the National Gallery of Art. And a short cab ride from the Kennedy Center. Our short weekend getaway was perfect.

DC Trip

Hotel is o.k. Overpriced for the value. The location is good but the hotel is not a warm or friendly place.

Exceptional style. Delicious food and very comfy

Location is absolutely perfect. In DC it is great to walk and use the metro, so location can sometimes be less of a priority. We visited on this occasion in the end of March and it poured, very thankful that we were right in the mix. The portrait museum is directly across the street. Poste, the on site restaurant was delicious. Great and breakfast and a Bloody Mary bar, reasonably priced room service and a great experience overall.

Good

Staff was great, room was comfortable. It was a b-day and they brought up wine and chocolates unannounced. Very good location for going out on foot.

Good location but significantly overpriced

Decent Washington DC location however, Significantly over priced for what it was. Charging €500 per night even for a Capital City is a bit much.

Great Place for Business

Hotel stay was great the restaurant, Poste, is incredible. The free Hotel Happy Hour is a plus and the staff was great. No place to change after checking out though, the bathroom was very busy and cramped. Great location and puts you right in the DC mix.

Location, location, location

You simply can't beat the location. The hotel is right where you want to be for great strolls through the city. The building is amazing. It's like staying in an old government building. The interior has so much charm. The staff is very friendly and accommodating without being intrusive to your privacy. Poste is not to be missed! I loved this place and will be back!

Poste! Very cool place. The food is amazing and very fresh as it comes from the garden on the patio. Don't miss drinks at the patio bar at night. It's like a cool patio party. Great atmosphere!
