Overnighted in the Morrison House, Alexandria VA, part of the Marriott Autograph Collection the night of 14 March, 2017, a newly renovated hotel with lots of charm, but most importantly - terrific Customer Service - due to Dakota Gordon, the Acting On-Site Manager. I could not have been more pleasantly surprised by the care, service, and helpfulness provided by Ms...

Before I even start on this MARRIOTT facility … condoms and sex lube on the price list in the room? Included on the mini-bar, munchies and stuffed toy list?!?! The ONLY list of anything … no room service menus, no local information, no “how to use things” information, no paper of any kind (other than toilet paper for the bathroom)...

We have enjoyed several previous stays at the Morrison House. We are from Alexandria, but living away for several years for work. Staying at this hotel has been a lovely, nostalgic luxury when in town on business. Under new management, however, it is no longer the Old Town Alexandria classic. Service is not as good as before, the staff is...

I didn't know what to expect, as the Morrison House is a brand new Marriott-affiliated hotel having previously been a boutique hotel in another brand's portfolio. Generally speaking, I was pleasantly surprised. Besides the lovely colonial-style decor, it combines the the quaintness of a bed-and-breakfast with the service and style of a boutique hotel. It lacks the chain feel, which...

I first started staying at this hotel almost 30 years ago. Needless to say it was extremely elegant and formal at its inception. It is now an Autograph Collection Hotel that is more reminiscent of a Federal Style Mansion. While there have been many changes since I first started staying, I love this place for its charm and stateliness. It...

I'll start by saying the location of this hotel is great (a block away from King St. and close to DC) and the staff are wonderful. Those are about the positives right there. The building has a ton of potential that isn't utilized and they cut a lot of corners. The walls are paper thin, the pull out beds from...

I stayed in the Morrison House in Alexandria, Virginia last week. If you see all my reviews you'll notice that I stayed there last year as well. I have an annual meeting there. Normally I would not write another review but the Morrison House, which is well situated in old town Alexandria, near restaurants and shopping, and just a really...

Since changing hands, now a Marriott Autograph hotel, it retained most of the staff . They still provide gracious and personal service of a boutique hotel. Not much has changed. Not really a place for kids, or the young adults, though the bar is a nice gathering spot. It offers a serene atmosphere, an oasis of tranquility.

A nice charming hotel right off King Street. It does not look like a hotel from the outside and makes you wonder what's inside, but as soon as you walk in the small lobby there is that nice and charming old town atmosphere. The rooms were a bit small but big enough for me and my husband. The bathroom was...

We were a bit concerned about staying here since the property very recently changed hands, but we found it to be as warm and welcoming as ever. Morrison House is our home away from home when we visit family in the area. We love the location, right in the middle of Old Town and all its charms. We love the...
