Its taken me a couple of days to recover from my visit to the Morrison House which was so disappointing, I barely know where to start. DO NOT...I repeat, do not, stay in a basement room. My God. It was SO loud (and I was at the farthest end on the "quiet" side). I heard every door slam, every voice...

This was our 1st stay at the Morrison House or any Kimpton Hotel. We had been in the area Thurs - Sat (dancing at the Hilton Mark Center) but wanted to spend a little time in Old Town after dancing. Very nice place. There was a lot of thought that went into Room 303 - a corner room with a...

My wife and I were departing on an international flight from DCA so we decided to get a little more sleep by overnighting near DCA the night before. Our choice of Morrison House was the perfect alternative to the Ritz at Pentagon City or any of the airport hotels at Crystal City. We found it online for an awesome rate...

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Morrison House. The location is EXCELLENT, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the room was lovely. It felt very "authentic Old Town" even though we found out the property is only 27 years old! We were upgraded to a suite because it was my husband's birthday, and they sent a big...

Itbwas our first time at the Morrison housevand the location was just perfect. The room was nice but we were in a king deluxe in the basement.

Besides the Morrison being a cozy and comfortable, historic, yet modern place to stay - the customer service was beyond what I have experienced in many hotels!

Very cute hotel. Loved the charm the rooms had and character that the building holds. The staff was very nice. Its in walking distance to everything in old town.

I travel up and down the East Coast for my job and stay in thousands of hotels. The Morrison House is my favorite. It is much more than a hotel, it is a home away from home. From the time I drive up and the butler welcomes me by name until the time I leave their customer service exceeds any...
