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

This was an unexpected surprise. I have stayed at Kimpton hotels before, so I had positive expectation prior to our arrival. However, the Morrison house far exceeded our expectations. We arrived very late at night and the Valet was right there to greet us. With three young kids we were kind of "scattered" with our luggage and kid's toys and... More

This hotel is well-located in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Walking distance to everything. The hotel is a historic home. Very charming public spaces, which include a living room and study. Great spaces to enjoy the evening happy hour and morning coffee/tea. Our room was on the lower level and so wasn't fabulous, but it was well-appointed and comfortable, and it... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and couldn't be happier with our choice. We had walked from the Metro on a very hot day and while checking in, the thoughtful desk clerk gave us bottles of water, saying that we must be hot and thirsty. We were very happy with our room which was on the 3rd floor. Some reviews... More

We could not be more pleased by our stay at the Morrison House. It's a beautiful spot in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly; they went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed and that our stay was stress free. The room was lovely and clean, though...

This mansion-like hotel manages to achieve a sense of intimacy foreign to most luxury hotels. The ground floor features a number of well-appointed sitting rooms, with coffee and newspapers available all day, as well as a bar and restaurant (which we didn't try). Our room was comfortable if not overly spacious; what we saw of our friends' suite was impressive.... More
