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.

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.

A few minor glitches

I have stayed here many times. Nice little touches, like a yoga mat on the floor. But this time I experienced a few glitches: the bath tub did not properly drain, there was difficulty in flushing the toilet, and the mini-bar refrigerator died. However, they brought a second refrigerator and put it in the room immediately. Staff was excellent. I will definitely stay again and hope these issues will be resolved.

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.

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 to See People

In the heart of downtown, in the center of the action, Hotel Monaco is the perfect location for drinks, meetings, or even the right place to stay if you're meeting people all over the city. The only complaint could be that the rooms are a little small, though very comfortable. However, the Hotel has great character. Will stay here again.

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.
