After getting settled in at our 'shoe free' hostel on H Street NE, we headed off to Dupont Circle. We watched a sweaty salsa lesson on the circle for a few minutes before going in search of a bar for a bite to eat and a few beers. We ended up being classy at a bar with $2 PBR tall cans and $3 philly cheese steak (Fi's first). The following morning we decided to hire bikes as we only had one day to fit in the hundreds of monuments and museums DC has to offer. First off we headed to the ...

We talked for over an hour, mum looked really good as did the girls. We skyped Becca, spoke with Max and Twizzle, unfortunately Becca has got boils all over her back and some parasite under her skin from her trip to Fiji. We had a late night, once again as with all of our hotel rooms, the bed was ...
... so we’d be all set for a drumming presentation and then an introductory docent led tour. I wish I was better at remembering tidbits of an hour tour, or at least one of the many stories.

My first week in Washington D.C. is now complete. It was a week of adaptation of my new environment and I think it's not so bad. I had and I have to continue to adapt at the type of life that my host family have and we have to adapt ourselves to each other because even if we get along well, the language barrier is still there and it’s difficult sometimes. It’s a fact; I understand pretty well what they are saying ...

This was a great source of anger for General Lee, who insisted that officers should never be treated as such, and is actually listed as a reason he continued his campaign for as long as he did. The Tudor Place is sprawling, well preserved thanks to the efforts of the last Peter male, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Monaco Alexandria, a Kimpton Hotel
Very clean. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Their complementary shuttle service was a big help as we travelled around the area. The location is unbeatable. There are dozens of great restaurants within walking distance (we enjoyed Cafe Salsa and La Tasca). The rooms were nicely decorated, and the beds were very comfortable. We had 2 issues during our stay. It appearred that some of our TV stations didn't come in. This did not get resolved, but we were too busy enjoying Old Town to bother with it again. Later we realized that our A/C unit wasn't working, and this time it was fixed when we got back from dinner an hour later. So there were some hits and misses.
I made this reservation in order to visit some friends in DC, and because the cost ($99 per night) was much better than anything I could find in DC. In general, this was a nice hotel, as long as you expect 3.5* service. The hotel has been operational for about 2 or 3 months, and it turns out that the grand opening was the first night I showed up; unfortunately, I had other plans for the night, and either there was some sort of snafu in the communication between the hotel and me, or they were likely very busy and forgot to put up the Inner Circle preferences (I did have sparkling water, a little fudge, and some fruit on arrival, so I can't say it was bad).
First I want to thank rafab1 for the Travelzoo tip! It just so happened I was going to Alexandria for the weekend and I was able to book this hotel for $99/night which is probably close to $75-$100 off the regular price.
Newly Opened Hotel in Alexandria
The newly opened Hotel Monaco is a large property that has been completely rennovated. While the decore is a little loud and garish for Alexandria, the staff is nice, the rooms comfortable and the service good. The room service menu is limited but I think they are still getting up to speed. The parking is expensive ($20 per day) but otherwise a good value at $166 per day through Expedia.
The First Lady was eating at the restaurant during our stay.
My spouse and I stayed at the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria VA for several days on a recent trip to Washington D.C. It's really nice. The hotel had been open only about a week before our stay. The location is in old town Alexandria, so you can walk to shops and restaurants easily. We needed to take the Metro into D.C. each day, so we took the hotel shuttle to the Metro station each day, Upon returning to Alexandria, it's probably easier to take a cab back to the hotel and not that expensive considering the convenience.
We stayed at Hotel Monaco, a Kimpton hotel, for four nights in early February of this year. Not only was the hotel offering "grand opening" discounted rates at just over $200/night, we'd found even deeper discounted rates via TravelZoo.com. We paid $169 for Wednesday & Thursday nights, and $99 for Friday and Saturday nights. The hotel had only been open for about a week when we arrived.
Decided to try the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria VA this weekend and we were very impressed. It is a pet friendly hotel (we brought our two small dogs with us - the first time we've traveled with them).
I Want to Go Back
I travel 3 weeks out of a month on business, i have stayed in a lot of hotels. The Hotel Monaco is a wonderful place. This was my second stay at The Monaco. I loved the first visit so much I had to come back. The rooms are large, bright and the beds make you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud (Sealy Posturepedic Dynasty Plush). I pulled the sheets up to see who made this marvelous bed. I had a room with a balcony which open onto a courtyard. Truly this hotel feels more like home than any hotel i've stayed in. All the staff are very helpful and pleasant. The resturant attached has a great breakfast and dinner menu too. There are some kinks because this is a brand new hotel, but you can't beat the atmosphere at the Hotel Monaco. I will definately return again and again.
Hotel Monaco in Alexandria, VA just opened in January 2008. It has a few kinks (which I'll mention later) but there are many good things to say about it.
