I was here for a brief, one night stay, in February of 2012. I was originally booked at the other Kimpton Property in Alexandria but due to a special of $ 183 a night for two rooms including a King Size Bedroom and a huge living room, I decided to switch to this property since it was close to everything...

We stay at the Morrison House at least once every year. The hotel offers a cozy, serene, and sophisticated atmosphere without being pretentious. The location is perfect for strolling, eating, and shopping. The metro is located within a short walk if you would like to venture to DC.

My husband and I stayed two nights mid-week at the Morrison House and as frequent guest of other (hipper) Kimpton hotels, we were a bit concerned that it's federal period style would be a bit stuffy, but we were pleasantly surprised! The common areas do feature period furnishings and don't invite longterm lingering (at least not for us), but were...

Impeccable hotel, excellent service. My favorite feature? Definitely the chocolate chip cookies that they leave on the bed. My parents and I stayed here, and this is definitely the sort of place that is only suitable for mature, calm children. The mature setting and fine decorum are perfect for anyone's vacation to Washington, D.C. or Virginia.

Morrison House is a wonderful hotel tucked away in beautiful Old Town Alexandria, VA. Though it is part of the Kimpton Hotel chain, you will feel as though you are a guest at a wonderful country estate; even the outer façade looks more like an elegant home than a hotel.
