This hotel has it all - beautiful rooms, perfect location, great service and best of all - free happy hour! It is located right in the middle of the action on King Street. It isn't a cheap place; but certainly worth the money if you can get in.

We've stayed here several times, and have not been disappointed. Even had a room in the "dreaded" downstairs (recommended if you want quiet). Kimpton amenities abound. Others have mentioned the wine hour, pet friendly, etc. But, a small (and important) point is the location - it's just off King Street, so parking to unload / load luggage, or just to... More

This is our go to hotel stay in Old Towne. Love the historic building, the attentive staff and the comfy rooms. Dog friendly, wine hour and lots of Kimpton amenities. Always a great value and perfect stay. Will be back again in the spring. If not sooner. Well done Moriison House.

As other reviewers have noted this is not a typical Kimpton in terms of appearance. However all the service and professional qualities associated with Kimpton are here. I stayed two nights for a wedding. The reception was held at the hotel. Food quality was excellent, service was excellent and the rooms used were beautiful. The property is ideally suited to... More

This hotel is different from other Kimpton hotels I have been to in that it is a bit old-fashioned, but in a charming way. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the bathrooms are modern. The hotel has a great bed and breakfast feel to it, which I found to be ideal for a weekend stay. The common areas off... More

We are frequent visitors to Alexandria and have finally found our home away from home. The Morrison House is tucked away on a quiet street and is well situated for navigating around the city. We were greeted warmly by the staff and immediately enjoyed the relaxing ambience of the hotel. The sitting rooms in the lobby are a lovely place... More

Morrison House is ideally situated for visiting and enjoying Alexandria. I have stayed there several times and am always impressed with the gracious hospitality and friendliness of the entire staff. A few short steps up the street to the trolley to visit all of Old Town and connection to the Metro to DC or the boat to Mt Vernon. A... More

This lovely hotel is less expensive than chains that offer much less. It offered a wonderful complimentary breakfast, an evening glass of wine, and the staff was as skilled and helpful as I've found in a five-star. Amazing. With hourly rides to the metro and great surrounding restaurants and taverns, this is about as good as it gets for a... More

Having chosen this hotel to stay at in Alexandria I was looking to staying at a hotel that would be appropriate to the theme of Old Alexandria, and represent that period in it's decor while providing the amenities of today. I was also looking for something with good quality. I was not disappointed in that the decor of Morrison House,... More
