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...

Very near Old Town, Alexandria is this quaint boutique hotel. The hotel is close to many of the restaurants nearby. Way back when it was built, it was part of Relais & Chateau designated but no more. Air conditioning was unit and noisy when running and service was not like it used to be. Didn't like the fact you needed... More

Right in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, the Morrison House is a very traditional boutique hotel that feels like a B&B. This has to be the smallest Kimpton Hotel in the chain. Compared to the more contemporary Lorien, this feels a little stuffy and formal. The hotel has smallish rooms, but the main shortcoming is the outdated decor. The... More

Dear Pete C, Thank you for your great feedback out our service. We are a bit different to the other Kimpton's of Alexandria, as well as the smallest in the company, and we like our style fitting with the Federalist look of Old Town. We're glad that we can provide options on King Street that will offer something for everyone.... More

We met friends for brunch early on a Sunday. The restaurant area is very small. Need to ensure that you make a reservation. The food was good and the restaurant was conducive to conversation. We were not in a hurry so the lag time in service was not noticed; however, if we were on a time schedule, it would have... More

This is basically a nice hotel but make sure you don't get a dreary cave-like basement first floor room with tiny window, as in "first floor" is corporate-speak for the basement below the lobby level. I would never book this place again without assurances of a higher-floor room. Not happy. Don't know if it was hotel policy not to ask... More

Perfect location off of King Street, within walking distance of the waterfront, pubs, and restaurants. Staff was excellent and helpful. Lovely outdoor sitting/dining area. As a solo traveler, I would definitely recommend it!

I have stayed at other Kimpton properties, but this was our first stay at Morrison House. It is a lovely, smaller hotel in Old Town Alexandria. It is just off King St., so the location is ideal. The staff are wonderful.
