My first night at the Morrison House was during the recent melee in downtown DC, which made my stay somewhat different than my later stays, as you can imagine. There was a lot of commotion, which is far different than my later stays where an atmosphere of quiet elegance has been the norm. With all that was happening, there was one person seemingly doing it all. Her name was Aryelle and she remained completely calm in the midst of the activity, checking people in and making sure that everything operated as smoothly as possible considering the circumstances. Because of her I have come back to the Morrison House a few times while home remodeling is occuring at my house, and have continually been impressed by the way she does her job. The rooms are nice and the lobby area is a jewel to lounge in beside the fire, but at a hotel you can only interact with one person at a time, and when that person is Aryelle, it is always a pleasure. Autograph is lucky to have her.

We had a fantastic stay at the Morrison House - the manager (Angelouise?) was very nice and accommodating. Charming property, very clean, excellent wine hour in the lobby with a fire in the fireplace and a delicious selection of wrapped breakfasts, even though the restaurant is closed during COVID. The inn is within easy walking distance to the pier and excellent restaurants and boutiques - the rooms are comfortable, clean, and airy. Will definitely go there again for a weekend getaway.

We were so delighted with our stay at the Morrison House in Old Town Alexandria, Va. The hotel looks like a grand southern home from the outside . . . then once inside . . . so cozy and beautifully appointed. It felt like we were visiting family. Loved it !!! Monique greeted us pleasantly at our late arrival and couldn’t be nicer. She was so warm and helpful. She immediately served us glasses of wine which we sipped in the sitting room by the fireplace and the elegant Christmas tree. Our room was neat as a pin and newly renovated. The gentleman at the front desk in the morning was very helpful and courteous. We look forward to coming back when we can spend some time in the town.

We were happy to spend a cold Friday night at the Morrison House as a Covid-19 getaway. The hotel is charming with well-designed rooms and a lovely lobby that resembles a library with a gas fire. The restaurant was closed, but they offered complimentary wine from 5-6 pm, which we took up to our room. The grab & go breakfast was one of the best I have seen. Everything was pre-wrapped, and there were lots of selections, including freshly baked pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt with granola, and hard-boiled eggs. The location is good, just 1/2 block off King Street. We enjoyed walking all over Old Town, window shopping and admiring the architecture. Best of all at the Morrison House was the excellent service.

The bed was a bit to firm for my husband, fine for me. He missed the in room coffee maker - there was coffee and tea in the lobby. He would prefer in room ice bucket instead of asking for it at the front desk. The room was very clean and comfortable. The water pressure of the shower was low causing me to spend a lot more time showering than normal. No water saved, just my time wasted. Walking distance from all our favorite places.
