We chose the Morrison House for it's central downtown location and affordability. Was very pleased with the excellent, friendly service and comfort of our room. Definitely become a Kimpton reward member to enjoy free room Wi-Fi and a credit toward the minibar or hotel bar. Valet parking available. Tea/coffee provided in the morning as well as wine in the lobby... More

This was the first time we stayed at this hotel. Great location ! Has valet parking, which makes it easy. This hotel has it's own restaurant, and also they offer free wine and hors d'oeuvres from 5 to 6pm in the lobby. If you need to talk about any subject, this hotel has the nicest general manager, she is one... More

I had just a few qualms about making this place even more popular, but adding one more 5-star review to 410 shouldn't exactly upset the apple cart! My wife, son, his fiancé and I just spent 2-4 nights here as we were in town for a grandchild's baptism. My daughter had mentioned Monaco House (another Kimpton property), as it was... More

Great hotel located in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. Staff was super courteous and helpful. While I usually don't prefer "historic" hotels, this one had all the charm of history coupled with all the modern conveniences. The best feature: an actual guide for the TV that worked! My wife and I would definitely stay here again.

We were in Alexandria awaiting our grandson's arrival and returned to the wonderful Morrison House. It was just like we were returning home. Everyone is so very friendly and bend over backwards to make your stay as perfect as they can. Also the location could not be any better for shopping , sightseeing, restaurants etc. When the baby arrived and... More

Please note that the rooms shown on the website are misleading to say the least. My 3rd floor room was really different than the lovely king with the fireplace I was told I would have. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. To say they charged my credit card 4 times and I had to spend 40 minutes... More

Good pedestrian location to walk around Old Town . The King Street trolley makes it easy to get around but is a very popular idea so prepare for delays. You can take the trolley to the King Street Metro and from there navigate the entire DC area. You can also take the trolley to the River and ferry over to... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Morrison House several times in the last 3 years and, because of our repeatedly superb experiences, have made it the only place we stay when we are in the DC area. It is a very comfortable, well-maintained inn. The staff, from top to bottom, are always friendly, helpful, and recognize us when... More

We booked an hour before on a Saturday night and got half price. Beautiful hotel! Within walking distance of the famous King Street area of Old Town. Quick walk to Murphy's Irish Pub! My only dislike of the hotel was our room on the ground floor - half a window looking out on car tires. This is not a property... More

I purchased a two night stay in a king sized room and I called ahead and informed the staff that I was staying for the evenings of my rehearsal dinner and wedding night. The photos of the room on-line led me to believe that not only would I have ample space to prepare myself and put on my dress, but... More
