Alexandria Hotel Monaco, A Kimpton Hotel Review: Located on King Street in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, this 241-room Kimpton hotel is close to local museums, restaurants, and the historic Mount Vernon. Washington, DC, is just a ten-minute drive away. The boutique-style guestrooms feature colorful and charming details in its décor, including red-and-charcoal houndstooth print ottomans, miniature busts of historical presidents, and chaises in contemporary black-and-white graphics. Internet access (wired and wireless) is complimentary. Over 5,000 square feet of stylish meeting space is available at the hotel, as well as an indoor swimming pool. For dining, the modern-Colonial style Jackson 20 (a nod to the country's seventh leader, Andrew Jackson) serves regional American cuisine.
