Do you believe guest and staff rumors that ghosts haunt the sixth floor of the historic Hotel Monaco in Alexandria, Virginia? Want to add a little spookiness to your family vacation this October/November? Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco, in Alexandria, Virginia, is the location where two martyrs, Union Colonel Elmer Ellsworth and secessionist innkeeper James Jackson were killed in a battle that is often considered the unofficial beginning to the Civil War.
This October and November, the Hotel Monaco Alexandria is offering a Ghosts of Alexandria Family Package, which includes the following:
- Deluxe accommodations in a King or Double Room on the “haunted” sixth floor
- Two tickets to the “Ghosts and Graveyards” tour of Old Town Alexandria, where you’ll follow an 18th century costumed guide by lantern light through Alexandria’s historic district – with ghost stories and tales of the Civil War
- Complimentary valet parking at the Hotel Monaco
- A “Key to the City” Pass featuring special discounts on historic sites throughout Alexandria
The Ghosts of Alexandria package starts at $150 and is based upon availability through November 20, 2011. To book the package, call (703) 549-6080 locally or (800) 368-5047 toll free. You can also book online using the rate code GHOST.
