A Boutique Hotel Near Old Town VA

In the heart of Old Town Alexandria

Prepare to be wowed; Old Town Alexandria has a charm that's hard to shake. Situated on the waterfront just across the Potomac River from the nation's capital, this beautifully preserved historic district was George Washington's adopted hometown and held great historic significance during the Civil War, too. Today, bits of the past rub up against trendy boutiques, dog-friendly cafes and gourmet hubs with patios overlooking romantic brick-lined streets. While here, you might want to wander the 82 artist studios of the Torpedo Factory Art Center or enjoy live music at Murphy's Irish Pub, practically an Old Town institution. Whether you're craving cozy and intimate or sophisticated or sleek, this destination promises to please.

Hotel Monaco Alexandria offers easy access to Alexandria's many treasures, as well as to downtown D.C. Explore Old Town by foot or by bike, or ride the free King Street Trolley to enjoy nearby shops, restaurants, bars and attractions.
