Nice folks, rooms feel very grand and the folks everywhere from front desk to room service were all really great. Would stay here again!! The location can't be beat if you're going to a concert at the verizon center.

I'm glad you enjoyed it so much Anon5552013, we'd love to have you back for another concert - or we also have Capitals and Wizards packages available if you'd like to catch those Rangers out of town! Come back again soon, Cheers Ed - Monaco DC GM

Great stay. Couldn't ask for a better location. Located around the corner for Verizon Center and nice mall with Clydes restaurant. Quiet room with great décor. Helpful staff. Good food. Central to DC attractions. Two blocks from the Newseum.

First, I have to say, this experience completely made up for my previous week on a SAILING TRIP FROM HELL! I've been meaning to post a review, but am still too wiped out to think about it... but onto the KIMPTON!!

...small (but handsome) rooms, and lovely public spaces. I wish the room lighting was better; otherwise, I have absolutely no complaints. The National Portrait Gallery, right across the street, is my favorite Washington museum.

Elton John performed on 14 Nov at Verizon Center in DC. As a birthday present for my favorite female we got tickets to the Elton John concert and stayed at the Monaco across the street.

Loved this earth friendly boutique hotel. Location was perfect for our quick weekend in DC. Tore up the Mall on the bikes that come with our room. Kudos for yoga mats and recycling. Loved the long hallways and classic feel that comes from renovating and old building. We are now Klimpton fans

My company hosted an event here and I stayed one night. The location is perfect, could not get much better. Right next to Spy Museum. Hotel room was small and I was put on a basement level.

All in all it was fine is a little less than we are hoping for LRapkin, next time we'll have to get you into one of our fabulous Monte Carlo rooms, more value - in space and luxury - for a small value in price. Please call us if you're headed back soon. Best Ed - Monaco DC GM

You have a myriad of fine choices when choosing a place to stay in DC. The Hotel Monaco is my first choice, however. The rooms are unique and extraordinarily comfortable. The staff is polite, ready and willing to do whatever necessary to make your stay more comfortable. The location is steps away from a World of entertaining things to do....

Excellent. Elegant excellence. Adjacent to the Metro. 15 minute stroll from the White House. Steps away from scores of great dining establishments. Superb front desk staff, great restaurant called POSTE, fun atmosphere. Close to everything in the heart of DC. And the building itself is AWESOME. Our weekend experience was worry-free, priced right, and very, very comfortable.

I stayed at the Monaco for one night on a business trip. The hotel is well located but the service was below par for a reasonably expensive "boutique" hotel. The following were the major difficulties: (1) checked in and given a room in the basement with no window (although they obliged with a room with a window when asked); (2)...
