The Hotel Monaco puts you in the heart of Washington, D.C.’s, Penn Quarter. Fashioned from the former post office and the Tariff Commission buildings, the property retains the governmental wide marble floors, 19th century columns, and high ceilings, but softens the feel with well-chosen fabrics and art as well as a living-room like lobby.
Children and pets are also welcome. Upon check-in, youngsters receive a KimptonKids gift. As a Kimpton Hotel, the Monaco follows the chain’s pet-friendly policy. No matter the size, weight or number of pets, they are welcome and you don’t pay any extra fees. It’s wise, however, to check ahead with the hotel.
Dirty Habit, the Monaco’s on-site restaurant, specializes in craft cocktails and small plates to share. In warm weather, opt for the urban patio lounge.
Metro: Gallery Place/Chinatown on the Red, Green, and Yellow Lines. 7th and F St. exit.
