Hotel Monaco in Alexandria has been our "go-to" hotel whenever we need a fun little getaway with the our kids and dog (we live in DC and there's an indoor pool so great winter break getaway!). Unfortunately, I learned over the weekend that it will no longer be a Kimpton hotel as of Tuesday (12/13)! I called the hotel and...

The lobby is eclectic with a cool chicness about it. There were so many interesting things to look at. I sat in a chair off to the side and was able to literally people watch. Before long, I felt transformed as if I were in a movie. It's hard to describe but so cool as you watched people walk through...

Stayed at this property on business. The staff was very accommodating, the room I had (King Deluxe) was quite spacious, as was the bathroom, the meal at Jackson 20 was delicious (as were the drinks), and overall the hotel and room was very clean. I enjoyed a glass of wine at wine hour with a friend. This location can't be...

Stayed here against my better judgement. When hotels are described as "Boutique " that's really just another word for old or dated. First things first, what hotel of this day and age does not provide a bar of soap in the room to wash your hands? This hotel. There were bath/shower items but a bar of soap had to be...

Your visit feels a little more personalized than the bigger chains...the staff seem friendlier, and there was always enough folks at the front desk who were glad to help...Very dog friendly, but they do have a no-dog floor if you ask....nice accomodations, slightly hipper than the big chains. Don't particularly like to have to pay more for a king bed,...

First time I had stayed in a Kimpton and there is not much price difference to larger chains but everything feels upgraded; the hotel itself, the rooms, furnishings and many nice touches like robes and yoga mats

We loved our stay here- The staff is friendly- the rooms are nicely decorated and clean. The lobby is really nice and a great place to grab a coffee in the morning or wine a night- its living roomish. The location is key too- we were really close to everywhere we wanted to visit in Alexandria and we enjoyed having...

We stayed here for our 2nd time for the December Scottish Walk, which end right by the hotel. As there are several Scottish dog organizations in the parade, there were a lot of dogs in the lobby during the wine hour (5-6pm). Our Scottie was warmly greeted by the staff, and given her own welcome baggie. I liked the décor...

A really great hotel with one or two abraded areas. Nothing really horrible compared to some. Kitchen help was a little surley following a request for a bagel. Don't ask for room service during supper prep time! We were starving. We would have been happy with some toast. But no. We were left with our free chips from the room...

This hotel is a great alternative to the large chain hotels. Excellent location and beautifully decorated. This was my second visit, and it did not disappoint. Great indoor pool with a lifeguard is an unexpected bonus. The hotel restaurant is very good, especially the breakfast.
