Our room was not large, but was very comfortable; bathroom wasn't wildly fancy, but very clean & quite nice (lighting could be brighter, but loved the built-in magnifying mirror!); public spaces are lovely. Best of all, every member of staff we dealt with was enthusiastically helpful and pleasant. Young man at front desk whom we had asked for DC Metro... More

We arrived for my daughter's bridal shower this afternoon to find the room not set up with the exception of tables. There were no chairs, or China in place. Mimosa bar was not set up. The service team appeared to be unorganized. Our coordinator Katie was no where to be found. Several times we had to leave the shower go... More

My husband treated me to a long weekend at Morrison House. A beautiful boutique hotel in Alexandria. It's pet friendly, so feel free to bring your fur children! The most comfortable bed and a beautiful view of the Masonic Temple. Coffee and tea available in the morning, fruited water during the day, and a hosted wine hour in the evening.... More

I stayed at Morrison House for two nights when I was in Alexandria a few weeks ago. I loved the location of the hotel, right in Old Town. My room was absolutely lovely and extremely quiet. I was in a King room in the corner on the 3rd floor and had a very nice view of the yards and buildings... More

We stayed at the Morrison House in Alexandria while visiting family. We loved our time there and the room was very comfortable, but was in need of a renovation particularly in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and provided a great nights rest. The air conditioning was very good in terms of room comfort, but was louder than one... More

Ok, so my daughter was hell-bent on having her wedding in Old Town Alexandria. She decided on Morrison House. The rates for a 40 person wedding and reception seemed, if not reasonable, then "do" able. There are certainly other places, closer to home, that are cheaper and more beautiful, but. . . Superficially, Morrison House seems like a quaint and... More

We stayed at the Morrison House for two nights (and hosted our wedding there). Many of our guests also stayed at the hotel. All of us were impressed with the location, decor, and most of all the service. Rooms are spacious, all the staff are very friendly, and you can't beat the complimentary wine hour!

Spent 3 nights at this Old Town Alexandria icon. Location is but one outstanding characteristic...within walking distance of the entire Old Town venue. Room comfort remains utmost now that Kimpton owns this property. The hotel's lounge, The Grille, is still as charming as I recall from my 21 years living in Alexandria. The staff is top of the chart in... More

The Morrison House is an outstanding choice for lodging in the Washington DC area. It's in a quiet location just off King Street about halfway between the King Street Metro Station and the river. Both are easily within walking distance. Staff is extremely helpful and responsive. Rooms are well appointed. The hotel offers a free shuttle to Reagan.

This is an historic boutique hotel in the heart of Old Town, just half a block off of King Street. The entrance is a grand stairway up to the main entrance and lobby. Once you enter you have the feeling of entering a grand old mansion. The main level has a living room-style meeting area, a small game room, computer... More
