Good stay

This hotel has a nice charm; not your cookie cutter luxury hotel. The staff was nice, the location in old town is perfect.

Irish place down the hill. Cliche in that it's yet another Irish pub, but it was comfortable with good food and drink.

If the staff were on point, this would be a 4

Set in beautiful Old Town, the setting for this hotel is quite calming and as a dog-friendly establishment, bringing fido was another plus... however, all the outdoor beauty and stylish hotel esthetics cannot mask how awful our customer service/staff experience was. From requesting room service, or inquiring about an AC issue, nothing was timely. Most of the time we had to call back after 30 minutes to ask for service again otherwise it wouldn't have come!

Don't valet. There is a parking garage right next to the hotel and it is much cheaper.

Nice stay

I only stayed there a night, but found everything to be very comfortable. I am not completely sold on the "discovering your wild side" theme. I prefer white robes over robes with animal prints. But after I got over the animal print, I found the robe very comforatable. I enjoyed my moring walk to the USPTO down King Street, which took me about 15 (fast NY walking) minutes.

Heart of the Action in Alexandria

Posh Hotel right in the heart of the action in Alexandria, VA! We loved our stay at the Monaco on King Street, just steps from everything. While we were in town for business, this place made us feel as comfortable as a resort property. Evening wine receptions, morning coffee in the cozy but posh lobby appointed like a large living room. Business folks, families and dogs all mingling like invited guests at a party. It was wonderful!

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.

I ate a late dinner at the attached restaurant...can't remember the name of it, but I had an amazing seared trout with spinach and shrimp on top. I made a happy plate.
