Great Experience

Very Clean room. Great central location. You can pretty much walk to everything. Helpful and friendly staff ! It would've been great if they provide you microwave and refrigerator also.

Excellent choice

This was our first time at the Monaco. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is only a few blocks from the waterfrtont and King St. is lined with quaint shops. Our only complaints were that hotel staff did not, nor does the hotel's website offer options for parking other than the valet parking offered by the hotel (there were 3 parking garages within 2 blocks of the hotel) and the room temperature seemed warm compared to the temperature set on the thermostat--65. That said, all the staff we encountered were superb.

Three parking garages within two blocks of the hotel offered 24-hour parking for $2.00 a day compared to the valet parking charge of $25.00 a day.

Great Experience

Already a very big Kimpton fan so, this one was easy. Perfect location in Old Town. Very eclectic as usual. Nice room that rivals the Ritz.

Adorable, artsy, great staff

We stayed here when our power went out in Falls Church. I LOVE THIS PLACE. Super friendly and helpful staff. Great location near restaurants and the harbor. Great wall colors and design. Child and dog friendly. My friend recommended hotel Monaco because of the free wine 5-6 pm and great service. The staff did NOT disappoint. Cool pool with swanky chaise lounges! Excellent value in a great American city.

Fine for vacation traveler

My experience at the Hotel Monaco was just what I expected--clean, professional, courteous. The staff was friendly, the free airport shuttle a plus, and the nightly wine reception delightful.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

This hotel is 12 blocks from the nearest Metro station. There is a free King Street shuttle from the the hotel to the metro, so keep this in mind, especially if you plan to use the metro a lot. On the other hand, the hotel is very close to the waterfront area.

great spot

Have stayed here before and chose to return. The wine hour is always well attended. I went to the pool. While it is beautiful--it is way dark up there. More lights would be helpful My shower/tub faucet was a little cantankerous, but engineering showed up immediately to fix it.

Large comfy room, lovely marble bathroom

We stayed in a king deluxe room. The location is perfect. Many restaurants and bars within walking distance. 15-20 minute drive to DC. Hotel rooms are very clean and one of the biggest rooms I've stayed in. Bed was very comfortable. Large marble bathroom. The heated indoor swimming pool on the third floor was a major plus. Definitely check it out if you are bored of the "classic" hotel look.
