We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The front desk manager was so kind and helpful. Sam made the visit a real pleasure. The room was comfortable and very clean. I found that this hotel was more like a visit to a home.

I stayed at this property for three nights. The location is excellent. The room was small but I expected as such for an old hotel. The room was also clean. The AC/Heating unit was very loud. Loud enough so that I couldn't sleep. On the last day I set the temperature very low while out and turned it off during the night. But it was a warm weekend and it got uncomfortable over night. I suggest bringing ear plugs. The restaurants were closed. Grab and Go breakfasts were offered as were coffee and tea. I felt like water and juices could have been offered as well. A little more effort would have gone a long way. It was recommended that hotel guests go to the Alexandrian about a block away for full service. Although not totally a bad experience, for an Autograph hotel I expected more.

We spent one night at the charming Morrison House. Our room was comfortable (though not large which is to be expected in older properties), lovely, quiet and included robes (which I always appreciate). For an older property, our bathroom was nicely updated. We stayed on the top, fifth floor, and had a good night's sleep. We appreciated the hotel's valet parking service. The hotel's location is excellent, about a half-block from the main street with numerous dining options. We wished that we could have spent another night in Alexandria to enjoy its charming, dining scene. One note: We initially drove by the hotel, ignoring our GPS, not realizing that the hotel's main entrance does not face Alfred street. Instead, a side of the property runs along Alfred Street, so we mistook the hotel for an office building at first. The hotel's entrance is on a smaller, brick street perpendicular to Alfred. When visiting Alexandria in the future, we definitely will consider staying here again.

We received so much help from Ariel. She carried our heavy luggage, gave us good restaurant suggestions and made us feel at home. She helped us with breakfast. There was wine available in the lovely sitting room fro 5 to 7 pm.

OK- Here we go! * Been a Marriott Titanium elite member for a long time- very loyal to the Marriott brand. *This was a Sat nite stay- hotels have a different character on the weekends> --- The good: - The lady on the front desk, also she was the bartender and did the valet parking- Very upbeat and an excellent example of a welcoming employee --- Location is within 1/2 block of King St which has some 10 restaurants per block all up and down the street. Plenty of places to dine. The Morrison House has closed their dining room. --- On this Sat they had free wine for a couple hours for their guests. --- The room was very nice with a comfortable bed on the 5th floor --- The walk- in shower was excellent- thanks for no bathtub!! * The not so good --- The greeter/doorman was hiding behind the door- you pull up in the ally and unless you know where to go, the hunt begins.- You climb the steps- about 10 or so, check in, go get you own luggage and cart it too your room- NOT UP TO AUTOGRAPH STANDARDS- AND I READ THIS PROBLEM GOING BACK TO 2018.- Fix this! --- You are in the center of Alexandria- the room windows are not soundproof and you can expect to be awaken by the emergency vehicle noises- probably a couple times a nite --- Remember this is a weekend- So you will have fellow travelers who like to stay out late and adjust their voice volume to match their beverage intake. They will also wake you a couple times in the evening- The room door isn't soundproof and has about a 2-3 inch gap between the carpet and the door- Lets in the noise. Also the automatic door closers slam the doors unless the guest helps reduce the SLAM So, next time in to Alexandria will stay at another Marriott property.

Response from Wilson Garcia, Guest Services / Front Office at Morrison House, Autograph Collection
Responded Feb 15, 2021
Dear Bear H, Thank you for taking the time to share about your experience with us during your recent stay. We are thrilled to hear that you found our front desk agent to be an excellent example of a welcoming employee, thank you! Also, it is good to know that our complimentary wine hour is being enjoyed by our valued guests. I am glad to know that the room was comfortable and the walk-in shower was excellent, but I understand the frustration with noise levels in and around the property. For this, I sincerely apologize. We do our best to ensure everyone has a memorable experience exactly like nothing else, and we fell short. We will be sure to use your feedback, especially about the ambient noise from the non-soundproof windows, the slamming automatic doors, and the noise-level of other guests, into serious consideration as we continue to grow and learn to become the best property we can be. We understand these are unusual times, and we thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your loyalty as a Titanium Elite Marriott Bonvoy member. We do hope you will consider giving us another try in the future. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns. Stay warm and healthy! Respectfully, Wilson Nathan Garcia Front Office Manager
