Even though it is being renovated, it still was a wonderful quiet stay. I can't imagine how they could make the rooms any better, but I checked on an updated room and they have. The restaurant or bar were not available, but there are lots of places within walking distance on King Street for food and drinks and some in-room... More

I usually prefer very contemporary styled hotels. I'm not a "chandelier" and "bed posts" guy but Morrison House actually pulls off "traditional " well. The front entrance is a double sided staircase. It was extremely cold the night of my visit and the front door didn't close well. Front desk is small but staff is super friendly. After checking in,... More

The room was spacious and the bathroom was adequate. The bed was comfortable. Our daughter's family was in a suite which included a king room and a queen room with a... More

The Morrison House has it all - location in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, wonderful ambiance, comfortable and spacious room with every amenity, a welcoming staff that is as efficient... More

What a delightful property. Being a local it was a mini vacation and the restaurant is a destination on its' own. The meals are exquisite with flavors that dance on your palate. Definitely worth the trip for visitor and locals as well.

the service, like Washington dc itself, had no smiles. how can you be 5 stars if you don't have a hot tub and you have to walk half a mile to get to a pool. id say the bathroom fixtures were dated but they did work. rather than a friendly greeting I got a written document about my dog. only...

We stayed here to visit some friends. The location is really good and the promo rate we received was very reasonable. The building is beautiful. The bathrooms are clean but need some updates. The mattress was larger than the box springs. Next time I would try Hotel Monaco.

This was our first time at this property. It is very different from the other Kimpton locations in that it is off of King Street on Alfred which is a very quiet area. The hotel has the appearance of being historic but it actually isn't. The rooms were very nice and spacious. I flew out separately from my husband so... More
