Initially could not find my reservation. It took over 10 minutes to find. My name was completely distorted. I asked for a room change because of noise. Told me the noise would stop after the game, so really not a problem. Generally left me with an unfavorable feeling.

We arrived 15 minutes prior to check in and were told out room was not ready and to wait in lobby for just a few minutes. At 3 PM we again approached the desk clerk and she basicallytold us to sit down and she would call us when the room was ready. At 3:20 we approached the desk again since people were checking in and there we still sat. As my husband approached the front desk we saw the same clerk leaving for the day. When we talked to a different desk clerk they were not aware of any issues and immediately gave us a room. This certainly was not the level of service I expected from the Kimpton Monaco. Immediately upon entering the room we had to call the desk for a light bulb that had burned out in the bathroom vanity. This was addressed immediately.

The staff was very attentive/responsive to my needs. The hotel worked perfectly for our family of 4 and was in a great location.

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.
