At Kimpton Hotel Monaco Washington DC, life gets painted with a vibrant brush and a colorful palette. Nothing is ordinary in our grand downtown building, built in 1839 as the city’s original General Post Office. It’s since been beautifully modernized (with a very recent refresh) to flawlessly meld the old and the new. Guests delight in our period architectural details, soaring ceilings, tall windows, and long, wide hallways that create an aura of drama and grandeur. At the same time, from the moment you enter our welcoming living room, you’ll find that our style is eclectic, bold, and playful, and our service highly personable. In this warm and social environment, the lines between work and play often blur, and our delightful hospitality carries over into every aspect of our hotel. Whether you’re here for business or pleasure, you’ll appreciate thoughtful and whimsical touches that make your stay luxurious and fun, and you’ll covet our address in bustling Penn Quarter, too. Welcome, new friends; we’re so glad you’ve come.
