I have stayed at this property a number of times over the years. Its location is well positioned for events in Penn Quarter and Chinatown. Easy walking distance to the National Mall and the White House. Numerous restaurants and bars nearby. The rooms are decent sized and comfortable, but please avoid the bottom floor which actually is below street level....

My husband had a conference in the hotel so this is where we had to stay. I had walked past this hotel on previous occasions (it's a block away from Shake Shack!) and never been in. The public space is nice and our check in was warm - until the guy said that he had us on the 1st floor...

We went on Labor Day weekend last year. We were greeted by a friendly man at the front desk. He took a look at our crew (parents, toddler twins and a Boston Terrier), sized us up and said he was going to upgrade us to a King Suite—no charge. It was a very kind act and unexpected for a big...

The Monico is fabulous vintage hotel complimented by the Kimpton updated style. EVERY aspect of my visit met with ideal service. For example, I was overheard speaking of a technical challenge and staff responded with a call to engineering who graciously ascertained that the glitch was with me. Several mundane requests are addressed it professionalism. Doormen and bellmen go above...

Fun hotel in what used to be both the US Post Office and Patent Office. The hotel takes up an entire city block. There are a lot of things done well - a few issues need improvement. If you're used to concierge service, you won't get it here. One room had used drinking glasses sitting outside the door during my...

The Kimpton is a modern, well appointed hotel in the immediate vicinity of the Smithsonian and Capitol Hill. I was initially inclined to mark it as 3 star but felt that might be rather harsh. My concerns were as follows: - "Musty" atmosphere in the room, almost as though it was a smoking room. - The food for dinner and...

Magnificent hotel! Hotel Monaco is IDEAL for families, couples, singles, anyone! It's decorated beautifully inside--modern with a twist. If you are staying, be sure to join the Kimpton Hotel rewards club, Karma. With it, you get free wi-fi, a 10 dollar bar credit and a nightcap service. Back to the hotel...the staff...VERY courteous. We had a cocktail in the bar...

Booked the Hotel Monaco because it is a Kimpton property and that they have a great pet policy (as I brought 3 dogs). Celebrated my sister's birthday and wanted a great place to stay. When checking in, I was informed that I booked the wrong room. I had mistakenly booked a single queen room instead of a double queen. The...

This hotel is one of a kind. The folks at Kimpton took the original federal post office building and transformed it into an amazing hotel. The staff is on point and always willing to go the extra mile with a warm smile. Dirty Habit, their new restaurant, is delectable! Small plates to share with friends so that everyone can enjoy...
