exceptional staff

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.

Awesome Weekend Getaway

Great location in a safe neighborhood, within blocks from the National Mall monuments, the Smithsonian museums, etc. Great choices on dining nearby. Hotel is clean and staff is friendly.

Best of Both Worlds

In one direction, this hotel is within an easy walking distance to the National Mall, monuments, Smithsonian, and US Capitol; in the other direction you can be in the food and entertainment zone of gallery place/china town in only a few steps. And if metro rail is your preferred means of travel, the gallery place station is out the front door and across the street. For history buffs, it is fun to stay in this historic building that used to be the Tariff office and also served as a hospital for wounded union soldiers during the civil war. The soaring ceilings and marble hallways are enough to set your imagination free. On top of all the history, luxurious amenities have been added and are fine if you are into that, but at some point, you have to concede that you are still spending the night in what used to be a government office building. Our bathroom door was a sliding pocket door with no lock, so if you are staying with a business partner, beware. The A/C seemed to have a hard time cooling the room with its huge ceilings. The room was very clean and the housekeeping staff was amazing. They offer a 5 dollar a day voucher if you decline housekeeping services. Which we did because we don't care for folks coming in with our stuff anyway. Hotel has bar and restaurant on site but it is more economical to ease down to all the eating places in the neighborhood. Also, there is a convenient corner store nearby with all your basic needs. (Sodas that don't cost six dollars each, etc.) We had a great time. I would think this hotel would be best suited for adult travelers, as children might become board with this particular place.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a short walk to the corner store on the first evening or morning of your stay and stock up on a case of cola and some bread, muffins, and other snacks. It's nice to have the non ten dollar dessert or breakfast item in the room with you all week!

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.

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.

Close to the Verizon Center

The Hotel Monaco gave us a small room. They provide only a king size bed so they weren't family friendly. The king size bed took up much of the space. There was a narrow hall like space and at the end was a desk with no space to either side of the desk. The room did not have any windows but had large drapes from ceiling to floor to cover the fact. They had a nice bathroom and the Hotel was convient to the Verizon Center but I wouldn't stay there again. It was not a good value for the money.
