From the moment I arrived to the moment I left - - magic. My brother booked his wedding here and many of us stayed the night. It is a beautiful bread and breakfast style hotel built in the 1980's but feels exactly like an historic home. The staff is friendly and efficient. Several downstairs rooms to hang out in that...

Soon to be part of the Intercontinental chain. Very comfortable and clean, terrific staff, excellent location in the Old City. Traditional room. Some wood furniture in need to refinishing. Hotel interior being repainted when we were there. Hotel has a great future. Would happily stay again.

Stayed at the Morrison House over Thanksgiving while visiting my brother in Alexandria. The front desk and doorman were very friendly and helpful. The room was simple but nice and clean, and for my stay everything was more than adequate. I was surprised that they still use actual key's for the rooms and not electronic cards. That was no big...

I stayed at Morrison House Hotel and was very pleased overall with the hotel. The hotel is quaint and a beautiful restoration of an old town Alexandria building. My room was tradition in decoration (not typical for Kimpton but understandable given the location and building). It was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The bath was functional and clean as well.... More

I have held board dinners at this location and my board always wants to return. I had occasion to spend the night for an anniversary and couldn't be happier. This is no ordinary hotel, The rooms are ultra clean with each room being somewhat different. Even though it is an older property, there were generous electrical; outlets where you need... More

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.
