Let me start by saying that if you want to stay in Alexandria this hotel has the perfect location - It's located about a half a block from King Street which runs through the heart of Old Town - It's also far enough off of King Street that its still very quiet. The hotel is the smallest I've ever stayed... More

When I booked this hotel/inn, I did so based upon the excellent location, the look of the hotel, and the fact that it was recently renovated/remodeled, as well as proximity to my daughter who lives in Alexandria. The pictures of the hotel and rooms were beautiful, and when we booked, the room I had thought I was booking ended up... More

As with almost every Kimpton stay I've had, this excelled in every way. From friendly staff to squeaky-clean room, all was top-notch. Little things like a full bucket of ice when I returned on a really hot day, a bottle of wine and fruit in the room when I checked in: these made me feel well taken care of, not... More

Great hotel. Loved it. The restaurant is fantastic. They had a wine tasting one night for happy hour, which was a lot of fun. The staff is exceptional. Amanda is amazing and will give you great advice. Just a block to King Street and it is about half way between the waterfront and the Metro Station. A free trolley goes... More

Without a doubt, the Morrison is the cool "new" kid in town—absolutely the top property in Alexandria. Don't mind what some post-renovation reviewers have written. The design is spectacular and tasteful: modern when it needs to be, traditional when it should be. From the public spaces to the bedrooms, they got it right. I'm normally very picky about bed comfort,... More

In a nutshell: the rooms are pretty, the staff is friendly, and the hotel is pet friendly! I had stayed at the sister property (the Monaco), and as enjoyable as it was, I would come to this hotel first. There was no pet fee, which was wonderful, and very nice outdoor seating with nice ambiance.

We were a party of 4- 2 rooms- for a short one night stay over the weekend. The hotel was excellent, the beds extremely comfortable, the price very reasonable, we got a free upgrade due to having to wait for our rooms for 30 minutes or so. We would- and more than likely will- stay here again the next time... More

We stayed at the Kimpton Morrison House last night while traveling for an overnight stay in Alexandria. We stayed at the Monaco last time, but decided to switch it up this time.

By far, the greatest gift this hotel gives to its guests is a staff who understands that customer service is a philosophy and not a corporate policy.

Located in old town Alexandria, the exterior is beautiful. Just underwent a massive interior renovation which made it more modern and while the new fixtures are really beautiful and the changed floorplan (moved restaurant etc.) flows nicely I think it lost the old world charm and coziness we were so impressed with when my daughter booked it for her wedding....
