This hotel is right in the middle of olde towne Alexandria. A short walk to the metro to DC and a short walk to the waterfront ot the end of King Street. Very cozy accommodations and the restaurant is very good. Saturday nights have a great piano player.

Hello ettr, I appreciate that you chose the Morrison House for your recent stay.

My first stay at this cozy little boutique hotel, but will definitely not be my last. Only about 50 rooms which allows them to FOCUS on customer service. Really enjoyed the manager's wine social each night and sing along in the bar on Tuesday. The hotel staff was extremely attentive and this hotel is totally pet friendly at no extra...

Kimpton at its best. The staff is amazing -- friendly, efficient, helpful. A great example being that on our last morning there were no longer any newspapers at breakfast. We were leaving within the hour, but I was asked what paper I would like and then told that they were going to the corner to buy the paper because they...

If I go to the DC/Alexandria area again, I would stay in the Morrison House again. The price we got on the Kimpton website was excellent and well worth the stay.

This was our second stay at Morrison House. It is by reputation the best, certainly the grandest, hotel in Alexandria and does the lovely Old Town neighborhood proud. Service was outstanding. Because it is small, we really had the feeling we could ask the staff for anything and we would soon have it. Shower cap? -- I'll bring one up....
