Hotels in DC are an all-too-often reality for some business travelers. Aside from the very upscale hotels in the beltway, most are business oriented but cookie-cutter places that get blurred together in one's memory. Not the Monaco! It is a retro-decorated establishment that is a refreshing change of pace. The decor betrays its origins but not in a bad way....

This was my first vacation in over 16 months and first time in DC. The Monaco was fantastic, the history of the building and location were great. I was able to walk to all attractions and know that when I got back to my room I could just relax. I can't wait to stay at another Kimpton Hotel.

I'm a Kimpton In Touch member and really love the Kimpton approach. The nightly happy hours; the happy employees who take pride in going above and beyond; the happy pets; and the unusually happy guests. But the Monaco DC, with it's fabulous location and wonderful historic building -- just doesn't rise to the standard of the Kimpton group. This is...

Ouch - this one was like a punch in the gut, and it looks like I deserved it ajfanning. I'm glad Thaxton took great care of you - but that's really not the standard we're looking for. I'd love to touch base if you're in town again, please reach out. Best Ed Virtue - DC Monaco GM

Great location, just a couple blocks from Mall. Nicely appointed room in a quiet corner. Clean, modern room, with all the amenities. But, all the staff was exceptional, especially the front desk! We will go nowhere else when we visit DC.

I booked a "queen room" through Expedia and asked for a room on the fourth floor, based on reviews on Trip Advisor. They put us on the fourth floor, exactly as requested; and apart from the occasional elevator stoppage and a bit of noise from a wedding reception on the Saturday night (we were three doors down from the rear...

We had a great family vacation at this hotel! It was close enough to walk to the Capitol and the museums on the Mall. Plus the building is so beautiful. I love the wide, dramatic hallways and the high ceilings. The staff was fantastic, of course (it is a Kimpton, after all!) There were welcome gifts for the kids and...

I was in Washington for a wedding and this was one of the hotels recommended up by the wedding organizer. Overall, I was very pleased with my very large well appointed room (huge ceilings) and the comfortable bed & linens. Room service was excellent. Front desk was great. And I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent food in the restaurant....

Stayed at the Hotel Monaco for four nights and was impressed with how soundproof the rooms were for being on the streetside of busy 7th street in Penn Quarter. We slept soundly all nights and never heard any noise from adjoining rooms either. For the most part, Kimpton properties are pretty consistent in their service and the Monaco in DC...

This hotel is a converted Post Office so bathrooms may be quirky and closet space may be minimal in some of the rooms. The warmth of the staff, the general ambience, and the prime location more than counterbalance small inconveniences. Grandchildren got welcome bags when checking in,coffee or tea in the morning, cookies available in the afternoon, wine in the...
