"Lovely stay, great location"
The rooms have a lot of character and it is in a great location in Old Town but the hotel didn't really knock me over - at least not 5 stars worth. Breakfast is not included and I think that for the price this is not too much to ask. The WiFi was fine - no issues - and I had hot water.
"Great Sunday Brunch"
We didn't stay here but stopped in for brunch on Sunday. The food was delicious and the service was totally lovely. This was when it was the Kimpton. We had a baby and after eating were very comfortable sitting for awhile in the lobby waiting for our ride. Very welcoming.
"Nice hotel in a great area"
I come to the DC area often on business and have stayed at this hotel several times in the last few years. It's a neat place, a historical building that has been appropriately renovated but maintains the historical charm. Staff has always been friendly and accommodating. This is my first stay here since the brand transition from Kimpton to Marriott, and I can't say that I've noticed a change. Rooms are clean. There is a fitness room that's pretty small but it will get you by. There's also an indoor pool that looks nice, but I've never used it. King Street is a great area to stay, and this hotel is right in the middle of it. You can walk out the door and head either direction, you'll find shopping, food, and entertainment. There is also a free trolley that runs up and down King St that stops right by the hotel. Parking is available for a fee (expensive, but normal for the area) right under the hotel.
"No Hot Water!"
Location in old town Alexandria was great. I spent the weekend here with my husband. The hot water never worked properly during our stay. They sent maintenance up twice. Neither time resolved the issue. I got tired of complaining and decided to just enjoy my time as best I could, with or without a hot shower. It would have been nice if the hotel could have offered something to me for the inconvenience. Hot water is one of those things you just kinda expect to have. Especially with such a hefty nightly rate.
"Doing well after transition from Kimpton to Mariott"
I've stayed at this hotel many times when it was the Hotel Monaco and run by Kimpton. Kimpton is great company, and I always had a great stay, so I was a little concerned when it was sold at the end of 2016 to Marriott. But, no worries, the staff is still friendly and helpful, the rooms are great, and you cannot beat the location on King Street. The only reason for not giving this hotel 5 stars is that they no longer have the 5pm happy hour, and that is a big loss.
