Great location in Penn/Verizon Center/Gallery/China Town area. Back door empties out to Jaleo. Excellent room rate both times I have stayed there. Room is a bit tight but worth the great ambiance (and happy hour!). Comfy, soft mattresses both times.

On my second night, I was getting ready for bed and found bugs under my pillow. I asked for a room change and that was arranged. But, no assistance was offered to me. The next morning I received a call from my bank explaining credit card fraud. I cancelled my card asap! When I mentioned this to the front desk, they failed to inform me that their charges go through New York. The clerk waived my fees but I still had to leave with a destroyed credit card. I'm still waiting to hear from the manager regarding the bugs in my room or just a courtesy call would have been nice. I'm not sure I would go back. I may select another hotel and pay extra, I'm not sure.

Historic charm with modern conveniences

Pros: Character and location; pet friendly
Cons: More valets, especially during peak times or when there are events at the Capital One center,
Location: Concerts and games at the capital one center, walking to the Mall to visit the Air and Space Museum and Botanical gardens.
We loved this hotel! They've kept a lot of the character of the original building but it is stylishly decorated. The LONG hallways may have a "Shining" vibe to them but not creepy! Unfortunately, sound does travel down them so it is not the quietest hotel (and probably not the best for young children). They've done a great job retrofitting the bathrooms into the rooms. The rooms are not huge but still have a desk, minifridge, safe and armoire. The staff were very friendly from the valet to the front desk to the restaurant. The location is great-1 block away from the Capital One center and walking distance to the Mall. There is mandatory valet parking with a charge and it is not in/out parking so you'll want to leave the car and walk or Uber/taxi around. While we did not bring pets it was nice to see that they are a pet friendly hotel!

Muttmagnets: Thank you very much for this awesome review. I'm glad you enjoyed our services and facilities during your recent stay with us. I fully agree with you, I love the hotel decor as well! Next time you come back, I recommend the Monte Carlo room type for you, these rooms are spacious and have enough room for everyone to stretch. I look forward to welcoming you back to the Kimpton Monaco Washington DC in the near future.

Beautiful hotel conveniently located

The Hotel Monaco is a beautiful hotel with warmth and charm. The architecture was stunning and the staff was lovely with whom to interact. My hotel room was clean, very comfortable, and I was surprised how quiet it was given the hotel's busy location. I would highly recommend the Hotel Monaco to anyone visiting the DC area. It is conveniently located and the amenities exceed those of most other hotels.

1st floor is the basement

Location: close to Verizon center and Chinatown.
Surprisingly small room. I expected more space for the money. No chair or lamp in the room, since there's no space for it. Small desk w/ a desk chair tucked in an odd corner. If I was a business traveler, might be Ok. But not with two. Leopard and Zebra print bath robes. Interesting. Lobby's nice. Free coffee and newspapers. Cool bar/restaurant.

Excellent Experience.

From our arrival to departure, the staff and accommodations were exceptional. I was greeted by a smile and sometimes by name at every encounter with a staff person; even my dogs were greeted with pleasure. Upon arrival we were offered an upgrade at no charge.. a very pleasant surprise. The hotel was well maintained, the rooms stylish and comfortable. The building has quite a history and I loved the architecture, especially all the marble steps. The front desk staff took a personal interested in what we had seen and offered suggestions for our next day agenda, they provided free tickets to some events and were readily responsive to all our needs. The location was perfect, medium and high cost dining available within a few blocks, a nice little jaunt to the Mall. Overall, I was very thrilled with my experience and will definitely stay there on my future visits. Regarding pets, the hotel was wonderful with my dogs, but keep in mind that area of Washington DC itself did not seem very pet friendly. Minimal outdoor dining available and no actual dog parks in that immediate area. Brueggers bagel was a great stop on the way to the Mall. Ella's pizza was great, seafood place 2 blocks away began with a Mc something was the best dining experience. The Chophouse was our worst experience; filet was just average, service poor. The hotel lobby had complementary drinks from 4-5pm ? every day and ice cold tea and lemon water during the noon hour which was very refreshing as the temps were in the 90s.

We LOOOOOVED this Hotel

This location cannot be beat. Easy walking to anywhere. The Smithsonian Portrait Museum is directly across the street which I thought I would hate and it ended up being my favorite Smithsonian. The Metro is across the street. Lots of wonderful restaurants all around. The staff is composed of over-achievers. As in, "oh, you want flowers? I will pick them up on my way to work from Whole Foods". That kind of over-achieving. Over and above. It is an old and interesting, very DC-ish hotel. Room service is lacking. It took 3 hours to get a well-done burger for a teenager on a Saturday night but the hotel manager on duty comped wine and did his best to stay on top of the kitchen to get the burger. The failure was solely in the kitchen. The experience ended up being a blessing in disguise because that experience prompted us to eat all other meals at the nearby restaurants instead of our usual method of having room service for every meal. Everything you need is right there. A CVS pharmacy, A great Spanish Tapas restaurant, Fabulous Mexican food (not the Tex-Mex one), the kids were insane over the Red Velvet Cupcakery across the street, a Farmer's Market on Thursdays. Perfect location.
