We just recently held our wedding at Hotel Monaco in Alexandria and it was the most wonderful day of our lives. We knew we booked this place for a reason but Hotel Monaco exceeded our expectations. We held the reception outdoors in their courtyard and it was beautiful. The brick walls and the windows made the pictures look great - very classy and unique from a typical ballroom or country club indoor setting. The food was phenomenal and the waitstaff and bartenders were exceptional. Everyone kept coming up to us and telling us how wonderful everything is. We really can't think of a single complaint. The reception went off without a hitch and there was not one problem - even down to every single person got the correct entree. The place was simply outstanding.
Trisha Murphy worked with us since day one and she was a tremendous help. We felt confident the whole time that things would work out as planned because she was leading the planning. When I had questions, she answered them for me immediately or just took care of it on her own. We are extremely grateful that she was in charge of our special day from beginning to end.
The hotel accommodations were also top-notch. You can't beat the location - being next to tons of restaurants and the water. Guests definitely took advantage of the proximity. We booked the bridal suite and it was gorgeous!! It's like having your own salon to get ready in. There were about 8-10 of us throughout the day getting ready and there was plenty of space to lounge around and hang out. Hotel Monaco provided us with a complimentary honeymoon suite for Sat night and it was wonderful. They had a bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries waiting for us.
Above all, your wedding day will be one of the most important days in your lives and Hotel Monaco truly made us feel like we were special. We are so glad we chose Hotel Monaco for our wedding, we 100% recommend it and will most certainly have future events here as the years unfold.

Trisha was a dream. She was down to earth, and we knew we could get along with her well throughout the process. Getting ready to leave for the church, the limo company called and said the air conditioner in the limo broke and they had to order a new limo to pick up the bridal party. This was going to push the ceremony back by an hour. John had to coordinate with Trisha about the delay with the cocktail hour, and the entire reception. Trisha worked with John to re-adjust our entire timeline, and we only had to extend out the reception by half an hour. And Trisha, to again show how incredible the customer service is, gave us a complimentary 30 minutes to our reception. This eliminated so much of the stress incurred by the delay. Throughout the reception, Trisha communicated to us on timing, and eating. She was amazing and we feel so blessed to have her on our side for one of the most important day in our lives.

The Hotel Monaco was the perfect venue for our wedding. Not only is the venue perfect for a wedding, its location in Old Town Alexandria make it the perfect destination wedding location. We had 50 of our guests staying at the hotel and they all had a great time even though the weather was not very cooperative. There was plenty to do and see for those who had dogs or kids to entertain. Our wedding contact at the hotel was very responsive and professional at all times. She gave great advice and all the references she provided were stellar, from the photographer to the cake baker. Due to the cold weather, the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all had to be inside and we loved the set up for all of it. There is really nothing I could think of that would make me hesitate in my recommendation. The Hotel Monaco is really the perfect venue, especially for a destination wedding .

I really wish we had the words for how happy we are that we chose Hotel Monaco as our wedding venue!! From the very first meeting to the perfect day itself, Trisha Murphy and her talented team went above and beyond to make everything absolutely gorgeous. The hotel is in a great location, and it is so uniquely beautiful, with bright vibrant colors and stylish, contemporary rooms. I wanted to DIY our wedding, so I had a lot of items I brought to Trisha. I feel silly now for ever worrying about ANY of the details, because Trisha and her team took care of every last thing! Trisha always responded immediately and put me right at ease. She also coordinated with all of our vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page. The reception was so much more beautiful than we could have imagined, and all our guests and family members can NOT stop talking about how classy and elegant it was! We were treated like royalty. We were working with a budget, and let me tell you, Trisha kept to it! Every penny we spent was worth it. As for the food... where do we start?! We can't even call it "wedding food" because it was too superb for that kind of title. Stop by Jackson 20 (the restaurant in the hotel, which caters the events) to see for yourself! And, our wedding package included a "Mixologist" appointment with head bartender, Andy. He concocted the most interesting and delicious drinks for our "signature drink" choices which added a fun touch to our day! Special shout out to Trisha, for answering all of my crazy emails and worries and making our dream day a reality! I would recommend the Hotel Monaco for ANY event - our wedding was absolutely perfect and something we will cherish forever!

Everyone at the hotel was incredibly professional. They went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was perfect. No detail was overlooked, the food was wonderful, the courtyard was a beautiful place to get married and have our cocktail hour, and the ballroom was the perfect size for our 120 guests. I am sure I emailed them dozens of times over the months leading up to the wedding and I always got a quick response. We felt incredibly special and looked after on our wedding day, just as you should!

I absolutely love the Hotel Monaco-Alexandria. We worked with Allison and Trisha (when she took over for Allison). Trisha made a seamless transition. The staff at the Hotel Monaco was fabulous and very attentive. We had about 90 guests at the wedding and this venue was the perfect size. I would definitely recommend this venue if you have 120 guests or less. They say they can seat about 150 but I do think it would feel a bit tight with the dance floor. Allison and Trisha responded to all of my emails very quickly and were so helpful throughout the whole process. It happened to snow/sleet/hail on the day of the wedding and having the ceremony inside worked just great. The food was amazing! Everyone loved every dish that they had and the appetizers were to die for. I absolutely would not have changed a thing. The wedding went so smoothly.

The Hotel Monaco is a beautiful, unique venue. The outside courtyard (that now has permanent hanging lights!) is a great option to have as part of the cocktail hour. The lobby provides guests with the perfect first impression.

Our event manager, Allison, was absolutely wonderful. She was always available through email and phone for any question, big or small. Her attentiveness throughout the planning process and the day of was superb. She kept my on schedule, which was appreciated.

The reception space was perfect for our guest count (130). If you need to keep your guest count down, this is the place for you! And the food was absolutely amazing. We received many compliments on the quality.

We had the most beautiful wedding and service at the Hotel Monaco Alexandria! Allison (our catering manager) was so efficient and replied to emails very quick. She is unbelievably organized! She made the planning process easier, especially at points when we were confused and stressed she was always one step ahead of us. On the day of, Annee was with us and was there from the beginning of the day helping with details and organization. Little things of course come up that a bride and groom may not think of and between Allison and Annee they took care of all that stuff so we didn't have to worry.The hotel itself is gorgeous and the food was AMAZING! They put together Indian menu options for us too since we wanted to combine both our cultures. We have no ties to Alexandria but chose this location based on the hotel and the amazing service we knew we, and our guests, would receive. Can't thank everyone there enough for being so helpful and making our wedding day so perfect!
