Downtown Washington good location, could walk everywhere on the Mall or use the Metro or the Circulator bus
Lots of places for meals, slimmer pickings on the weekend as many places cater to the working employees.
Only down side was the renovations going on at the hotel, hopefully over soon, as no real lobby/reception, computers set up in the entrance.

Lovely building that was formerly a post office. The Kimpton Hotel Monaco is in an ideal location, across the street from the Verizon Center, great restaurants, and the National Portrait Gallery. Most of Washington's historic sites are within walking distance. The decor is tasteful and somewhat funky.

"Great location for site seeing - highly recommend "
Really beautifully decorated elegant hotel with excellent service. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated. My only issue is no hot water in the shower in the morning, two days in a row. My sister showered at night and had hot water, so it must be a capacity thing. There wasn't much of a view from the window, but we just took a basic level room. Everything else was fantastic - especially the staff. The location, so close to the White House and the Metro was perfect for site seeing.

I was very happy with my choice. It's located right in the middle of everything. Parking was good. We were able to see everything by walking. Gift shop on the Lobby sells the tour bus tickets. The staff was very friendly. Room was clean and we were able to get a room with two queen and one single bed. We had three kids with us. Perfect!

Lovely stay. Great staff, comfortable room. Room service menu, however, left a lot to be desired. Not enough choices or variety. Service was excellent, regardless, just wish there were more of an offering.

Downtown DC is awash with culture. The Smithsonian Institution museum complex flanks the National Mall. The Washington Monument bisects the Mall, just south of the White House. Federal agency headquarters house bureaucrats of varying stripes. Moneyed and powerful lobbyists help create (and quash) laws from K Street. Chinatown and the Washington Convention Center lie east of downtown.
