I read reviews of this hotel prior to booking and it seemed like the reviews were even so I decided to try. I was happy that we did. From the outside it looks very stately with its grand entrance way until you open the front door to find Kelly green walls behind the front desk. I knew this hotel would... More

We stayed here Wed and Thursday nights. The staff was great, our room was good, a little tight for 2 people, but to be expected when you stay inhotels like this. The breakfast self serve was delicious and the evening bar was most accommodating. Stay if you want a quiet place with easy access to anywhere you want to go.

We were in town for a family wedding and we stayed at the Morrison house. To start, the shuttle from the airport took quite a while. The location was perfect as it was a half a block from King St and you could walk to everything. The rooms were nice with nice beds and pillows. The elevator was slow at... More

Morrison House is a charming property with much going for it..... if they don't put you in a room in the basement(cleverly labeled "First Floor"). Do not accept a room on this floor. Our room smelled heavily of mold. There was no bedside table! So phone etc had to go on the floor next to bed. Dark room with a... More

I generally do not write hotel reviews where I have had a bad time that was just due to transient problems. But my last night's stay at the Kimpton Morrison House was dismal. I had to wait 40 minutes (after 3pm) for my room to be ready. And when it was . . . I discovered it was in the... More

We stayed at the Morrison House for five nights in October. It is a very nice hotel with relatively affordable rates considering its convenient location in Old town Alexandria. Many of the staff are competent and provide considerate service. HOWEVER, this hotel has serious problems to overcome. First, upon check in at 4 pm on a weekday there was no... More

This used to be a stately old hotel. It's been modernized (Kimptonized) past recognition. The do-over may have been overdue but I really miss the old library and the colonial-style ambience. The bar is an improvement, however.

Overall we had a very nice stay. The hotel staff was awesome and accommodating. In comparison to the other Kimpton hotels in the area, I would probably return to the Monaco or Lorien instead. The rooms are nice, but there aren't any balconies and our view was an alley and parking lot, for this reason I give it a "very... More

Clean, comfortable,good location. Since this is a boutique hotel, I would have expected coffee/tea pot in the lobby 24/7. That was a little disappointing, since there is no where (but room service) to get a cup at night..

A very nice hotel situated in Alexandria outside of Washington. We really enjoyed the saty. The staff in the reception was really helpful to all our queries, and sorted out all our enquiries promptly. The room with a Kinfbed was with good space and comfortable. The bed could be percieved as a little to hard, but we slept quite well... More
