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

Great stay! From making the reservations and modifying them twice, to check in, to great rooms, nice happy hour and morning coffee, great location and gracious staff; Morrison House can't be beat for an excellent choice and value. The location is terrific, one block off of King Street and fun shopping, good coffee shops and taverns, only 6 or so... More

This Alexandria hotel is part of the Kimpton group, a chain of boutique hotels that are each a unique experience. At the Morrison House, the service is unmatched. The old colonial house is wired for all of your electronics with ample receptacles in the rooms, speedy and seamless wifi, awesome bathrooms, plush robes, and dimmer switches for the wall sconces...

True to the Kimpton reputation, this hotel is stellar, both in service & location...with a delicious restaurant. The free hop-on/hop-off Alexandria trolley stops across the street...& a short drive to everything Washington, DC has to offer.

After staying in both the Westin and Hotel Monaco in Alexandria previously, I just returned from my first time at the Morrison House and would return in a heartbeat. Excellent service, a beautiful atmosphere, and hands-down the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept on! I knew I selected a good hotel when I discovered cookies on the bed to... More

The location, right off King St., is excellent and the staff are great. The bartender makes a great martini and the hotel is a great size. When we go to Alexandria, this is where we stay. The rooms are comfortable and clean and they have a cookie waiting for you in the room. The restaurant is also excellent, good menu... More

This is a wonderful historic hotel in the heart of Alexandria. We stayed there in the winter and couldn't really enjoy the surrounding area but would go back in the spring or summer. The room was very large with a comfortable king size bed. The only complaints I would have is that the view was of a back alley and... More

This really is a wonderful hotel. It's clean, beautiful, has a kind and efficient staff and a great location. We wound up booking online for $150 a night, so it was a good value for the experience. Room service was lightning fast. They even do a complimentary wine hour each day. Lovely! However, though the food is delicious, I'd recommend... More

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome. The room was lovely. I especially thought that the yoga mat in the room was a nice touch!
