Hotel Monaco is a boutique hotel housed in a historical 1839 general post office. Found near the Chinatown metro, the building was designed by Robert Mills (designer of the Washington Monument) and the architect, Thomas U. Walter, who helped make the Capitol Building. The hotel is lavishly decorated with Victorian, modern and classical furnishings, and every room hosts a lion head statue on the wall. The first all-marble building in D.C., Hotel Monaco is certainly unusual, and quite an experience.
