“Morrison House is the Jewel of Alexandria”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

My husband and I have been going to the Morrison House for many years, often several times a year. In fact, we had our wedding festivities there nearly 19 years ago. It is an elegant boutique hotel, filled with warm graciousness. There are employees that we have known for many years, and though they don't see us for a year sometimes, welcome us with hugs. We love this place. And we are crazy about Kimpton hotels generally, the Morrison House having become a member of the Kimpton family in recent years. Over the years, our only wish was to be able to have our yellow labrador with us and once the Morrison House became part of the Kimpton family, our wish was granted. The Morrison House, and other Kimpton hotels are not just dog-tolerant, they are truly dog-friendly. I will never stay in another hotel, if I have the choice of staying here.

Room Tip: You cannot go wrong with the rooms at the Morrison House.

Dear McKenziesMom,

Thank you for being so loyal to the Morrison House. I guess it all started with your wedding at the Morrison House 19 years ago. It means the world to us that after all these year we are still your number one choice in the area! We cannot wait to welcome you back and I promise you and your family more hugs upon your return. Are you going to celebrate your 20th wedding anniversary with us?

If you are just looking for a place to sleep in the Washington Area, this experience may not be for you. But if you are interested in a wonderfully appointed, charming and restful abode to remove the stress of the day, I can not recommend a better choice. The staff is unbelievable, the rooms are unique, and the food is top notch.

Please visit this wonderful hotel as a visitor or resident of the area, you will not be disappointed.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Morrison House and found it clean, comfortable and beautiful! The staff, especially Willie, Abdullah and Fanta were so kind and helpful with suggestions for nearby eateries and transportation into D.C. And, Anwar, from the other hotel who shuttled us to and from the hotel the airport kind and helpful too.

We had a king size, corner room, highly recommended.

The hospitality made our stay restful and enjoyable!

My return stay to Morrison House ~ again proved wonderful! Their service indeed is ~ Superb! Gracious, very helpful hosts from doormen to front desk to fine dining servers. Location is ideal
in Alexandria’s lovely Old Town ~ on a very quiet peaceful street.Just ½ blk off King Street so easy access to historic spots, shoppes, & Alexandria’s free Trolley. Also ideal 10 min access to Reagan Airport with complimentary shuttle. Their restaurant offers quality cuisine plus 1st class service.
The Manager likewise is to be commended for providing an atmosphere excelling in consideration. Though only mins from Washington’s hurried pace & traffic,the Morrison House offers a lovely escape ~ to a quiet, restful ambiance.
