My wife grew up in Alexandria and had always wanted to stay at Morrison House. She remembered it being "the" place to stay. I thought there would be no way ANY hotel could live up to a lifetime's worth of expectations.
Morrison House proved me wrong by being the most elegant and inviting place I have ever stayed (and I do a lot of traveling). The hotel staff is very friendly without overdoing it. The comfortable amenities like complementary cookies in the main level lounge area were a real treat. The colonial era decor is beautiful and warm; befitting of Old Town Alexandria.
The hotel sits right in the heart of Old Town. It was perfect for an evening stroll through the shops and restaurants. We took in a comedy show about a block away after dining at Morrison House's (apparently) famous restaurant. While it was a little more than I would usually spend for a meal, the food and service could not be beat. We enjoyed our romantic getaway; but I think you would love to stay there for business or pleasure.
