We stayed at this hotel June 8, 2019. My boyfriend and I are locals of the DC area, and enjoy weekend getaways. The Hotel Monaco is perfectly located, the Metro is across the street, there's a Matchbox restaurant behind the hotel as well as a CVS. The Capital One Arena is a few blocks away, and many restaurants too. We got a great price on Hotline, $98 for a king.
We were given a first floor room, which was really partially underground (one level below the lobby). The room was well maintained, a little small, and the bathroom was kind of weird. It seems like they built a bathroom in the middle of the room, and it stuck out. The pocket sliding door on the bathroom was worn, didn't close all the way so not much privacy. The king bed was a little hard, and there was a huge lion statue above the bed (which creeped me out, but I got used to it).
They served complimentary wine in the lobby from 5-6pm, and while the room had no coffee maker, there was a stocked fridge. The best thing about this hotel was the restaurant, "Dirty Habit." They made excellent cocktails and the venue is huge, there is a large courtyard in the back of the restaurant, with a separate bar, very cool vibe there. Valet parking was pricey, $40. When we checked out and got our car, we found an empty can of Mountain Dew in the back. Not cool, but all in all, a good stay.
This was my first time at this hotel and while the location is perfect, it is the architecture that makes it unique and a visual pleasure. The rooms are, quiet, comfortable, and airy with beautiful old floor tile, self standing bathtubs, and fabulous Baroque wallpaper throughout the hotel. There was a wedding right down the hall from my room and I literally did not hear any noise that evening.
The staff are completely accommodating. My flight had arrived very early, at 7:30a.m., and I thought I would just leave my bag at the front desk but they found a room that was ready and I was able to check in early without any problem. All staff were pleasant and ready to assist but I really appreciated the sincerity that was added to their conversations.
Complimentary coffee in the lounge in the morning, wine served in the evening, a nice outdoor bar to meet up with friends.
I go back to D.C. in two months and I will always stay at The Monaco.
