Even though it is being renovated, it still was a wonderful quiet stay. I can't imagine how they could make the rooms any better, but I checked on an updated room and they have. The restaurant or bar were not available, but there are lots of places within walking distance on King Street for food and drinks and some in-room bottles can be found. We are always greeted with smiling faces here.
We came in at the beginning of the week when a huge storm was moving up the eastern coast, so it was a quick visit.
If I have a choice, we son't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: It is on a quiet street, so there are really no bad rooms.

On-line reservations easy and no problem. Arrival and courteous welcome-check. Stored luggage and took to room when room was ready+called to let us know room was ready-check. After a wonderful lunch and enjoying the shops on King Street arrived back at the MH, cordial welcome again-check. Went to room, just as described on website-check. Received a surprised knock at the door with a complimentary birthday treat and bottle of spring water-check! Had a wonderful stay at the Morrison House-Kimpton Hotel-in Old Town Alexandria, VA. Very pleased, highly recommend, we will definitely stay there on our next trip to Alexandria. Two thumbs up!

Room Tip: Ask for room on 5th floor (that's the top floor) with a view.

I usually prefer very contemporary styled hotels. I'm not a "chandelier" and "bed posts" guy but Morrison House actually pulls off "traditional " well.

The front entrance is a double sided staircase. It was extremely cold the night of my visit and the front door didn't close well. Front desk is small but staff is super friendly. After checking in, I was given my room key. And it was a REAL KEY! Not a key card. A true, locksmith created key. I went to my room and was initially surprised by the "colonial" style of the room. Chandeliers, bed posts, wall sconces and small chairs. But once I get settled in, the style seemed "right". They did a good job of including modern touches with keeping the traditional style. Flat screen TV, plugs by the bed and nice bathroom amenities blend perfectly with the traditional style.

The restaurant was closed for renovations during my stay but there's plenty of restaurants near by (I recommend Nando's).

It was a surprising visit that I really enjoyed. Morrison House is a great way to enjoy the style of classic Alexandria without sacrificing modern touches.

My husband and I and our daughter and her family stayed at Morrison House over New Years 2025-16. We were in a deluxe king room on the fourth floor. The room was spacious and the bathroom was adequate. The bed was comfortable. Our daughter's family was in a suite which included a king room and a queen room with a sitting room between. The hotel hosts a complimentary wine reception each evening. There are no coffee making facilities available in the rooms, but coffee is set up in the lounge in the mornings. The location is perfect!

Room Tip: This is a small hotel, so there can't be a bad room.

We were looking for a place to stay while celebrating the new year with nearby family members. We found the perfect place to stay for future visits as well. The Morrison House has it all - location in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, wonderful ambiance, comfortable and spacious room with every amenity, a welcoming staff that is as efficient as it is friendly, delicious food (we had breakfast only at the hotel on this trip). Our lodging helped to make this one of the best visits ever with our Virginia/Maryland family.
