Hotel Monaco Washington DC Hotel Review: This block-long, four-story structure was designed by the architects of the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capitol. It is made entirely of marble and dates back to the 19th century. It is a National Historic Landmark and is still listed as a federal building. It opened as a hotel in 2002, and its lobby impresses with vaulted ceilings, alabaster and chrome details, spiral staircases and creative light fixtures. When you check in, the receptionist hands you your complimentary goldfish, ready to keep you company throughout your stay. The inner courtyard offers a peaceful respite with attractive greenery. Rooms also feature high, vaulted ceilings that provide a spacious, airy atmosphere. Décor is hip and trendy, with retro color schemes and furniture. A unique feature is the offering of tall rooms with oversized beds and higher showerheads. Views from all sides of this building are attractive---they look onto either the courtyard, downtown Washington or the Smithsonian. There is a fitness center within the building, and those wanting to swim can hit the neighboring YMCA. Little extras include complimentary morning coffee and evening wine.
