Just spent several nights at this boutique hotel in Old Town. The location is a half of a block from King Street and easily accessible to all of the great restaurants and shopping. You are 9 blocks from the Metro and the trolley doesn't operate until 10 or 11 a.m. so to get to DC for all of the activity... More

We are a Canadian couple who travelled to Virginia for a family reunion. Because it was a special occasion, we did spend more than our normal travel budget, and so we splurged a bit on this trip. When selecting a hotel, we chose the Morrison House because we enjoy the unique personality and warm customer service of boutique hotels ..... More

First we drove right by the hotel, as the entrance is on a smaller alley! After a long drive it was nice to get a class of cold white wine at the check-in. The common areas are excellent. We did not try the restaurant, but had a couple of drinks at the bar. Our room was just roomy enough: the... More

A nice boutique hotel if staying in Alexandria. Conveniently located a few blocks from the waterfront and from the bars and restaurants. Had a third floor master bedroom, so thankfully no problems with the basement rooms that others report.

We've stayed at this charming, historic hotel in the past and loved it. It is well located in Old Town--walking distance from everything you'd want to see and do--the shops, restaurants, and port--while in the area. It's also a nice choice if you have any business in Virginia in general as it does not feel so corporate; it's not a... More

My husband and I stayed here for our first wedding anniversary. Everything was great! From start to finish, the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Our room was nicely decorated and had lots of light through the windows. The other areas of the hotel are also very nice. We enjoyed sitting at the bar one night while a live pianist... More

We went up to Alexandria for an overnight trip. This was our first stay at Morrison House, and it exceeded our expectations. This property is just off of King Street in an historic neighborhood. The free trolley on King Street is just around the corner. This runs from the Metro station to the waterfront. The entrance is beautiful with twin... More

I booked a three night weekend with my wife while visiting our daughter who lives in Arlington. When I booked the room, I noticed that the room was described as a lower level room. I thought - oh well no skyline view - when I booked it. What I learned when I arrived was that a "lower level room" is... More

I'll start this review with the caveat that I didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel. But what I did experience was awful on many levels. It began on a bad note when after a long and tiring day of travel, the free shuttle took nearly two hours to get to the airport. Then when the shuttle did... More

A cozy, older hotel with excellent service. It's employees are prompt, friendly and courteous. They really go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Our room was adequate, clean, and comfortable. The restaurant is outstanding both as to service and excellent food at a moderate price for the area. I made a reservation for a family of eight...
