University Place, Washington
Reviewed 7 February 2014

Love the location and the staff. Tiny rooms for the price. Love the happy hour, and the restaurant is wonderful. You need an entrance that has a ramp or less steep stairs. I was with someone who could barely get into the bldg. due to surgery. What about disabled/older people?

GM1004, General Manager at Kimpton Hotel Monaco Washington DC, responded to this review

I love that you loved so many things about the Monaco LAT46, our stately Monaco is on the National Historic Register, which really limits the things we can do with ramps and stairs though. For your next visit - there is a ramp at the Poste Courtyard entrance, and the added bonus of Chef Marron's great food and drinks while...

I've always had a nice stay and enjoy the location of the Monaco. It's a terrific hotel, with great service. I've stayed several times and had a wide range of room types. If you get a big room, they are terrific for a DC hotel and it really enhances the stay.

You offer great advice GGTraveler, and our Monte Carlo rooms are such a small addition in price, they are one of the best bargains in town! Come back soon please. Best Ed - Monaco DC GM

Our 3-night stay was delightful. Everyone on staff goes the extra mile to make your experience easy, fun and memorable. The hotel is gorgeous inside and out with spacious, comfortable, luxe lobby and accommodations. The neighborhood is close to everything - restaurants, sights, the E Street Cinema (a favorite), and right cross the street from the National Portrait Gallery (just...

This was a long awaited 'no kids' night away and the hotel did not disappoint.

There are a lot of good reviews of the hotel on this site. I can't say the place doesn't deserve a lot of them. However, once you get past the fantastic architecture and amazing ceiling heights, there isn't much there to distinguish this place above an average hotel. The architecture is cool and you probably won't find anything else like...

Spent 3 nights at the hotel at the end on November 2013. Can't fault the hotel, staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. The building itself is lovely, side corridors, sweeping staircases and good sized bedrooms with tall ceilings. We only had breakfast at the hotel, couldn't fault it. It may not be a cheap hotel, but well worth the price...
