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.

Fantastic location

rooms have 15 foot ceilings in country's first federal post office. My 3rd stay there. Really a fun place to stay. Very good restaurant located in hotel. Across from the National Gallery of Art and the Verizon Sports Arena. Junos is a good tapas restaurant also across the street.

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.

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.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

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 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.

Outstanding experience at the Monaco

Beautiful facilities; staff was incredibly friendly. The little amenities were superb, like complimentary bikes and umbrellas, evening happy hour, a lively restaurant and bar, yet a lovely, quiet atmosphere.

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!
