Concierge.com's insider take:

The West Coast–based Kimpton Hotel Group brought its successful Monaco brand into D.C. with a flourish when it took over the distinguished 1839 Tariff Building. Designed by Robert Mills, who also created the Washington Monument and the United States Treasury Building, the neoclassical property is now a stylish boutique hotel (and a registered national landmark). Located in the art-gallery-and-restaurant-filled Penn Quarter, the 182-room Hotel Monaco combines grandeur and hipness, exemplified by the six Robert Mills suites. These corner spots have vaulted 20-foot ceilings and ornate moldings, and are decorated with contemporary but not severe furnishings. In a surprising innovation, the 36 Monte Carlo rooms are designed for tall guests: King-size beds are 90 inches long, and showerheads are set higher than standard nozzles. There's also complimentary wine in the evenings, a pet-friendly policy, and a companion goldfish (on request) to keep you from getting lonely.
