We would not think of visiting Alexandria and staying anyplace else. Service is courteous and professional. Location is perfect. Charm abounds. The nicer rooms are comfortable and spacious. Housekeeping is excellent. They renovated since out last visit and painted the entire lobby area a bright hi- gloss green. I don't know why they did this, it is not, to me,... More

Such a great lovely boutique hotel off of King Street. The staff are great and the hotel is so Old Town quaint. I actually got married here and they did a lovely job. I have stayed here a few times. The rooms on the upper floors are way better than being in the basement (try to avoid those). They are... More

Big disappointment. After coming here for years, this will be our last time. Many changes since the renovation including decline in customer service and attention to detail. Running out of coffee. Running out of Chardonnay in the first ten minutes of hospitality hour. Room keys having to be constantly rekeyed. Had to call room service to have room cleaned. What... More

I hose Morrison House because it just looked like I place I'd like to stay, and it didn't disappoint. I was pleased with every aspect of my stay from the moment I walked in the door. I arrived at about 12:30pm, and, surprisingly, my room was ready! I was in a King Premier room, specifically 403. I had plenty of... More

I only stayed one night and did not check if there was coffee in the rooms! When I asked they said it would be available in the lobby at 6am. I checked twice and it did not show up until 615am! If you need your coffee in the morning bring your own pot!!!

Beautifully restored boutique hotel in the heart of Old Town. Couldn't be better. Clean pretty rooms and top customer service. We usually love the experience of Kimpton hotels and this one is no exception. I would highly recommend.

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
