The Morrison House is perfectly located in the middle of Old Town Alexandria, midway up and down King St. This property, one of the three owned by Kimpton in Alexandria, is a classic Federal style building with corresponding furnishings in both the public and private rooms. All of the staff make it very clear that they want your stay to... More

We lucked into a stay at this lovely property by way of the Hotel Monaco (an overbooking situation). Normally I would have been very put out with this inconvenience but the staff at both hotels could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Location is excellent, close to upscale shopping and a variety of restaurants - within walking distance. Convenient... More

The Morrison House is a beautiful hotel. The location is perfect. Go right out the front door and you are in Old town. Lots of shops and restaurants. The rooms are small but well appointed. If you want to stay somewhere outside the city of DC with charm and sophistication this is the place.

We love staying here, quick walk to all the shops. Very nice having valet service. bellman, is always on top of everything. My only disappointment was that they have open mic with the piano on Saturday night instead of Friday night, so we missed the big show. We would have had breakfast on Saturday morning, but they did not open... More

Birthday overnight for two. Check in greeting from valet and bellman was quick and attentive . Room was not ready but proximity to central shopping and pubs made it no problem. Corner room on top floor nicely appointed , although the claim of a fireplace is " technically " true, but it was inoperable, so......... Bed, linens and electronics all... More

Dear networkConnecticut, Thanks for celebrating your birthday with us! I'm sorry that we aren't able to offer operating fireplaces and the fact that they are decorative was not better conveyed to you. We appreciate your comments about our staff and hope that we will see you again next year, if not before! Best, Kate More

I stayed here with my 50lb aussie shepherd dog for several nights. It was a fantastic experience all around - the location is great for walking the Old Town, the hotel is elegant and comfortable, my room was everything I had hoped for, and my pet and I were treated wonderfully. This was my first introduction to the Kimpton Hotel... More

The Morrison is a lovely, intimate inn with warm, accommodating staff. My waiter at breakfast was a fountain of knowledge about the history of the area, and gave me some great tips on sites to include in my walking tour. The location is perfect, not touristy - halfway between the Potomac and King St Metro Station, with good restaurants nearby.... More

I stayed here during a recent work trip. The customer service and warmth of this hotel are amazing! The best way to describe it is that you feel "cared for" and "welcome." The decor is beautiful. You feel like you're staying at a fancy inn. There is a nice sitting room and library off the lobby where they serve coffee/tea/hot... More

From the moment we picked up our luggage and called for the hotel shuttle until the shuttle left us off at the airport five days later, everything was perfect. This is such a friendly hotel. The location is perfect as there is much to do nearby. We will definitely be back. Thanks Kate (the manager) for all your kindness!

The level of service at this hotel is the equal of hotels many times more expensive than the Morrison House.
