Not the most attractive neighborhood
The 202-room Hotel Monaco is a stunning historic property in the business district neighborhood of Mount Vernon. Rooms have modern amenities, such as flat-screens and iPod docks, and funky decor that extends to common areas. All the features one would expect from four-pearl Kimpton property are here: a 24-hour fitness center, a stylish restaurant, a free evening wine and cheese hour in the lobby, a pet-friendly policy, and ample kid-friendly amenities.
A historic Beaux Arts building with quirky modern decor
The Hotel Monaco is housed in a beautiful historic Beaux Arts building that was once the former B&O Railroad headquarters -- and there are plenty of preserved historic details that allude to this past. Among them: Tiffany stained glass windows, a dramatic marble staircase, and crystal chandeliers. But this grandeur is contrasted against the quirky, modern style that is typical of many Kimpton properties; surprisingly, the mix of modern and historic blends seamlessly.
The hotel also offers the Kimpton freebies that make the boutique hotel experience more personalized, including a free wine and cheese hour, free bike loans, and free in-room yoga mats.
