This lovely hotel is tucked away behind King Street and holds all the charm of a historic yet modern hotel. From the checked carpet, creamy wall paper, crisp white linens and fresh pillows, to the exceptionally clean bathroom, I enjoyed every moment of the stay. The staff members were courteous and helpful, and so pleasant. I appreciated little details like... More

The pros: Rooms were very clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and service oriented. Central location in Old Town Alexandria on South Alfred Street near the geographical middle of the main retail/restaurant drag of King Street. The cons: Was expensive, but I am assuming everything in this part of Alexandria is expensive. 24 hours of Wifi service was... More

Stayed here on a visit to DC and found the 'old school' style and service lacking in most hotels here in spades - it was just such a nice place to stay and our room was quiet and huge - loved the quintessential style a lot

The Morrison House is a small hotel but it is big on service and the staff is excellent. We visited DC for an interment at Arlington and it was a hot August 5 days. The hotel provided cold bottled water at the front desk for all it patrons. The rooms were quite large and well appointed. This hotel was just... More

Stayed here for the first time in many years and was pleasantly surprised at the updates to this property. Fresh and funky while still retaining it's sophisticated charm. Staff was exceptionally friendly and our room was clean and comfortable (if a bit small due to the building's age). The location is excellent for enjoying all the area has to offer.

In comparison of the other 2 hotels that are on the same street within blocks from each other, and the price point, I'm more of a fan of the Hotel Monaco and the Hotel Loren which are more spacious when it comes to room size, This hotel often runs deals at $130 dollars, but for this cost, its a room...

My husband and I spent the night at Kimpton Morrison House to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. We were treated so well! The staff couldn't have been sweeter, from wishing us a happy anniversary to telling us we looked nice when we dressed up for dinner. At night they sent up happy anniversary beverages, desserts and a card. Totally unexpected... More

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.

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
