The on-line photos gave me the impression that the hotel sat alone at the end of a sweeping driveway. The reality was that it is tightly packed among other buildings. The front actually faces a narrow side street. It does look like the photos, just on a less grand scale. That aside, our stay was quite pleasant. We had a... More

I stayed at the Morrison House in Alexandria while I was attending a painting workshop at the Torpedo Factory. From the moment you walk in the door of the hotel you are greeted politely and there is a strong feeling of a concern for your well being during the stay. The staff behind the desk were always willing to give... More

I would highly recommend staying at the Morrison House the next time you are traveling to Alexandria. Not only is he service, rooms, restaurant above the bar but the location is stellar. It's in the middle of the historic district, a quick walk to the waterfront & to top it off only 3 blocks to "Hanks Oyster Bar". We will... More

This was my second visit to the Morrison House. It's quite a special little place. It feels more like you're staying with friends than a hotel. As expected with a Kimpton hotel, the service was personal and top notch. The staff is always friendly and ready to please. The rooms are spacious and clean. The location in Alexandria can't be...

We enjoyed our night here. The staff were very friendly, especially Fanta who parked our car. Our room was on the 4th floor and was fine. The hotel was well placed for us to explore Alexandria. There was only one server at breakfast when we went down but she dealt with us promptly - our rate included the continental breakfast... More

Small hotel with high degree of personal service. Room was comfortable but a little tight on floor space. Liked the spa robes, dimmer in the bathroom for convenient night time lighting, and lighted makeup/shaving mirror that was adjustable to different heights and angles. Wish ALL hotel rooms had these. Best service was from the "butler" who was also the car... More

I've reviewed Morrison house before, but wanted to add that in addition to being my favorite hotel, it is also my dog's favorite place to stay in Old Town. The staff warmly welcomes you and your pet. It's nice to stay in a high-end hotel and bring your pet. They make sure you have what you need so that you... More

Perfect location, a block off the King Street in Alexandria with so much to do, see, and great restaurants. Still, not being right on King Street gives the hotel just enough distance that you don't hear street noise during the night! It was easy to take the Metro to Arlington National Cemetery and other special places to visit. From photos... More

First impression of room did not meet my expectations. There was nothing wrong with the room, but I had wanted an upgrade and there were none available. I guess I was comparing our room to another Kimpton Hotel. I felt bad asking about another room, but the Gentleman at the desk was more than understanding. He could have easily just... More

The hotel has a distinctive B&B feel to it. The lobby and check in area are quaint and cozy. The room is a decent size with a superbly comfortable bed. The attention to detail is a little lackluster. The soaps and toiletries were not refreshed daily. I had a mini bar diet soda one night. The mini bar was not... More
