Small hotel with high degree of personal service. Room was comfortable but a little tight on floor space. Liked the spa robes, dimmer in the bathroom for convenient night time lighting, and lighted makeup/shaving mirror that was adjustable to different heights and angles. Wish ALL hotel rooms had these. Best service was from the "butler" who was also the car... More

I've reviewed Morrison house before, but wanted to add that in addition to being my favorite hotel, it is also my dog's favorite place to stay in Old Town. The staff warmly welcomes you and your pet. It's nice to stay in a high-end hotel and bring your pet. They make sure you have what you need so that you... More

Perfect location, a block off the King Street in Alexandria with so much to do, see, and great restaurants. Still, not being right on King Street gives the hotel just enough distance that you don't hear street noise during the night! It was easy to take the Metro to Arlington National Cemetery and other special places to visit. From photos... More

First impression of room did not meet my expectations. There was nothing wrong with the room, but I had wanted an upgrade and there were none available. I guess I was comparing our room to another Kimpton Hotel. I felt bad asking about another room, but the Gentleman at the desk was more than understanding. He could have easily just... More

The hotel has a distinctive B&B feel to it. The lobby and check in area are quaint and cozy. The room is a decent size with a superbly comfortable bed. The attention to detail is a little lackluster. The soaps and toiletries were not refreshed daily. I had a mini bar diet soda one night. The mini bar was not... More

Great stay! From making the reservations and modifying them twice, to check in, to great rooms, nice happy hour and morning coffee, great location and gracious staff; Morrison House can't be beat for an excellent choice and value. The location is terrific, one block off of King Street and fun shopping, good coffee shops and taverns, only 6 or so... More

This Alexandria hotel is part of the Kimpton group, a chain of boutique hotels that are each a unique experience. At the Morrison House, the service is unmatched. The old colonial house is wired for all of your electronics with ample receptacles in the rooms, speedy and seamless wifi, awesome bathrooms, plush robes, and dimmer switches for the wall sconces...

True to the Kimpton reputation, this hotel is stellar, both in service & location...with a delicious restaurant. The free hop-on/hop-off Alexandria trolley stops across the street...& a short drive to everything Washington, DC has to offer.

After staying in both the Westin and Hotel Monaco in Alexandria previously, I just returned from my first time at the Morrison House and would return in a heartbeat. Excellent service, a beautiful atmosphere, and hands-down the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept on! I knew I selected a good hotel when I discovered cookies on the bed to... More
