Can't say enough about the friendliness and service-oriented character of the staff. The facility itself has comfortable public rooms and one of the nice features was a 'wine hour' at five where you have the opportunity to - perhaps - have a conversation with some of your fellow guests. There's a grill with a very nice small bar and a... More

I stayed at the Morrison House in Alexandria, VA overnight for a board meeting that took place in one of the hotel's conference rooms. Getting to Alexandria was about a 2 hour drive and when I arrived at my destination, according to my GPS, I could not find the Morrison House. That's because the front of the hotel is located...

We've stayed at Kimpton hotels in the past and just love the experience! The Staff is just so nice and accommodating. We also love the free wine hour in the afternoon. The room was so quiet I think I've never slept better. We ordered room service for breakfast and our meal was delicious and the price was really fair. The... More

My wife and I had a lovely brief visit to Old Town Alexandria at the beginning of the holiday season. Morrison House is perfectly positioned in the middle of Old Town, within steps of wonderful restaurants and shops all decked out for Christmas. The staff was consistently gracious, the room charming and comfortable, and breakfast in The Grille was delicious... More

This hotel is not at all what it used to be. I grew up in Alexandria and it has seen a better day. I am VERY surprised Kimpton does not do more to get it back to a higher standard. Although sheets are great the facility is old and showing too many signs of running down hill. The elevator wood... More

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
