Morrison House is a very nice, upscale smallish hotel perfectly located to get around Alexandria by foot in good weather. Our room was on the 5th floor corner and was very comfortable. The service is impeccable. Very friendly staff. We found the restaurant to be too stuffy and expensive to be enjoyable. But the piano bar on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday is fantastic.
The piano player worked at the White House for 30 years. Neighborhood folks come in on these days each week and sing. Everyone treated us like we were regulars too. Lots of fun. Go for the piano bar and quality service. Go elsewhere for good food at a reasonable price.
