The Monaco is located on Kings Street, the Main Street in Old Town Alexandria. Walk along King Street to wonderful shops and restaurants. A short walk to the waterfront. If you drive into town the hotel has underground parking which wonderful because parking downtown can be difficult.
The staff are very helpful and decent people.
It's a sweet little hotel just a couple of blocks from the king's street metro line, with easy access to the greater Washington area. It's located in old town Alexandria which is safe, clean, quiet and a great break from the Washington buzz.
Eminently walkable, Old Town Alexandria offers a glimpse of early America through its 4,000 historic homes and businesses. Many visitors begin their tour at the Ramsey House Visitors Center, near the center of Old Town. One highlight is The Athenaeum art gallery, a Greek Revival structure where legendary Civil War Gen. Robert E. Lee once banked. Don’t miss Mount Vernon, George Washington’s estate.
