I stayed here a week for business and although it is a nice hotel, I probably wouldn't stay here again. The first night, I was in a room where I was woken up by the outside traffic around 5am. They kindly allowed me to move rooms to be on the inside of the hotel overlooking their courtyard bar/restaurant. That was...

We wanted to stay somewhere fancy and luxurious for New Year's Eve. This place had been recommended to us and judging by the pictures we saw on the website it looked pretty amazing. We got the premier King room which is usually $339. I got a discount for being a triple A Member which brought it down to 289 so...

I love grand buildings, and the don't come much grander that this old Post Office building. The Monaco not only resides in a grand exterior, but it has preserved the great details in the better rooms, especially the suites.The rooms are large (for Washington, especially), well appointed, and very comfortable. Of course you get Kimpton's great service as well, and...

We simply love the Kimpton hotels. Unique, often in wonderfully renovated and historical buildings, great beds, lovingly appointed rooms, exquisite toiletries, excellent food, and fantastic customer service - I mean, really fantastic. This one, the Hotel Monaco in DC has never disappointed us. It's also right across the street from 3 national museums, 3 blocks up from The Mall (on...

Located in the middle of Penn Quarter, across the street from the SAAM and National Portrait Gallery, and diagonally across from the Verizon center metro exit. This hotel has easy access to DCA airport, and anywhere else you'd like to go around the DC metro area because of it's good access. It is also a 15 minute walk from almost...

This was our one and only stop in Washington so i have nothing to compare it to, but after the confines of a New York hotel this place was the definition of spacious lol. It was still only a one room wonder but you could actually swing a cat...don't do it though. The walls arent the most soundproof so the...

Gorgeous, historic building.. spacious, beautifully-appointed rooms.. fabulous, fun restaurant.. and unmatched Kimpton hospitality -- that's the Hotel Monaco in Washington, DC. My recent experience at this property is a great example of why I'm a longtime Kimpton fan. Front desk manager Kelly and her team went above and beyond expectations in securing the return of a book/travel journal I had...

Prior to our visit this week I emailed a few questions and received a response within minutes. When we arrived yesterday at 10:30am, we were planning on just leaving our car with the valet and getting started on our sightseeing, but we were told our room was ready! From the valet person, bell staff to the front desk staff, everyone...

The Kimpton hotel chain is known for their quirky, but charming and highly individual hotels. With the Monaco, they've gotten nearly everything right. In a restored and repurposed former Post Office, the hotel has high ceilings and amazing architectural details from the original building that provide a basis for lux that Kimpton builds on in savvy fashion. The staff are...

Well located close to Gallery Place Metro station, this grand hotel has what you are looking for in classic style. The rooms are on the small side, but incredibly decorated. The staff is prompt, professional and classy.
