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.

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!

Excellent

Great hotel, great location. Hotel Monacos are always good and good value. Only negative I can think of is that the restaurant needs restrooms on the main floor.

Quiet getaway in the heart of Penn Quarter

Loved our anniversary getaway - gorgeous old hotel with historic scale and architectural details, beautifully transformed to hip and quiet* (no street noise!) --- with a great restaurant (highly rated) and very nice courtyard and bar scene. We are locals who wanted a getaway and found a real gem downtown! Too bad anniversaries only come once a year....

Our favorite Smithsonian museums are right across the street - Museum of American Art and National Portrait Gallery. We visit these museums (conveniently in the same quad) almost every other month with our kids or friends -- always something to discover and a nice part of town to have lunch or brunch on the weekend.

Great Stay

I highly recommend the Hotel Monaco. The hotel itself is a beautifully restored historic building in a great location to Chinatown - the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Portrait gallery directly across the street. Safe clean area. The room was way beyond expectations - high ceilings and beautiful furnishings. Very rich feeling. The bed was so comfortable and the room was quiet. We'll definitely stay here again.
