The New and the Renewed in Hospitality in Old Town

The New:
The Hilton Garden Inn is Alexandria’s newest hotel and the brand’s first property in the city. The new hotel, owned by Carr Hospitality, is located at 1620 Prince Street, in the heart of Old Town.

“We look forward to introducing our guests to the vibrant history and modern flair of Alexandria,” said Mary Anne Russell, general manager. “Guests can experience chic dining, boutique shopping and sophisticated art galleries. The unique attractions of Alexandria are all within walking distance of our new location, and our nation’s capital is only a short subway ride away.”

Additionally, the hotel will be LEED certified, demonstrating the property’s commitment to sustainability through water and energy efficiency, material selection, environmental health and innovation in design.

The Renewed:
Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Alexandria just completed a multimillion-dollar renovation to all guestrooms, suites, hallways and the living room, including the addition of a ridiculously awesome bridal suite named the Eleanor Suite, after Martha Washington’s granddaughter Eleanor Custis – one of Virginia’s most well-known brides and socialites.

In the heart of the Colonial seaport George Washington once called home, Monaco Alexandria, a Kimpton Hotel stands out as a landmark four-star luxury destination. Following an extensive renovation by Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, the six-story red-brick property has emerged as a 241-room jewel known for its high style and whimsy, pet-friendliness, and abundant amenities. General Washington’s legacy and the Civil War era subtly inform the spirit and décor of this boutique hotel, but its pampering personality and bold style are very much in the now. Monaco Alexandria is located at 480 King Street.
