We enjoyed staying at Hotel Monaco, staff was great and helpful during our three day stay. The hotel was an old railroad business building with old pillars and tiffany stain windows that provide a quaint environment. We got a goldfish during our visit. The rooms were comfortable and roomy.
From the time we arrived to the time we left the staff was there to do whatever it took to make the stay a wonderful experience the where friendly and very helpful and knowledgeable The food and service was excellent as well .A great place to stay and relax
Our first room had a gross rust stain around the stain. The bedroom and bathroom doors were either to lose they didn't stay shut or too tight you had to lift up to shut. Large amount of dust on TV stand shelf. Could use new couches! Wasn't aware I would have only a mini fridge in a suite! Staying for a week with a baby we wanted a regular refridgerator. No supplies for the kitchen like paper towels or sponge or even dishes. Safe in our room did not work. Bed was comfortable. Small vanity space in bathroom. For the most part staff seemed nice and our request for more towels was met quickly.
We were looking for a clean, safe hotel in Mount Vernon for one night. Overall, we enjoyed the room. There were some maintenance issues, but nothing terrible.
Our biggest concern was the hidden costs. $29 for overnight parking - and you're not going to find much on-street, so you're pretty much stuck. PLUS there's a 20% tax on that - didn't reveal that. That's a big percentage of the cost of a room that's $89 a night! The listing indicated breakfast was included, but confirmation didn't include it, so we ended up with a $30 breakfast bill we weren't anticipating. disappointing for those two reasons.
However, if you're aware of those things - this was a nice hotel in a good, safe location.
