Loved the location and the look of the Morrison House. The upper room was lovely (I do suggest requesting an upper room) and the area has lots of nice restaurants and shops. Easy (15-min) walk to the King St Metro station, which can take you anywhere in DC. Staff was very

Arrival is difficult, as there are no carts or lifts to avoid climbing the stairs out front. We had been assured of early check-in, but our room was still not available, even though we arrived late ( after 4pm ). When we finally got into our room, our "neighborhood view" turned

I love this hotel. You feel pampered from the moment you check in and are offered a glass of champagne. The location is great; tucked away just off King Street. The staff is attentive and wants to fulfill any requests, and everyone is kind and friendly. The beds are plush and

Stayed here for two night when in DC for work. I stayed in a basement room - which was a little strange - accommodations were clean, bed was comfortable, Nespresso in the room is always nice. The bathroom ha undergone 1/2 of a remodel - literally only the shower had been

Dear guybeachbum, You are correct about the bathroom as a few of the rooms did have old tubs replaced with new showers. As the lower level rooms at Morrison House have wood floors instead of carpet, we do have a number of people requesting those rooms, but please feel free to request a different floor on your next trip. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Sincerely, Mike Nelson General Manager

Stayed here during a business trip. Location is great. Old Alexandria is a walkable town. Plenty of quaint shops. The hotel is situated mid center between Amtrak/King Street train station and the waterfront. Free trolley provides services up and down the main strip. As for the

Dear ladieshoes, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Morrison House. While I am happy to hear you enjoyed the location of the hotel, I also recognize our need to attend to some details in the room and to ensure that wifi connectivity is consistent at all times. The radiator cover does need attention and we will be addressing those in early 2019. Sincerely, Mike Nelson General Manager

Is there parking and is there a gym?
I believe there is only valet parking. My guess is it's complimentary - but check. Street parking would be difficult to find as it's a crowded town. I don't believe there's a gym. This hotel is not a large standard hotel - it's an old & beautiful historic property which must have been a townhouse in its heyday.

We had a delux king room, very comfortable. Furnishings are reproductions.

Hi summersadie! We’re actually closing our doors as of February 1 for a top-to-bottom renovation, opening back up in April all spiffy and new! We'd love for you to check out our friends at Monaco Alexandria and Lorien Hotel & Spa in the months while we're is closed.

We used the hotel valet. Once we parked, we never got the car out of the parking until we left. The city is very walkable. You can also borrow bikes from the hotel and ride to Mt. Vernon!

$12 day parking is for meetings or events at the hotel. The hotel garage is valet only, so overnight guests would pay $27 per night. Enjoy your stay!

"Upper rooms are my preference"
"a corner room affords a bit better view"
"I had a room on a high floor overlooking the entrance but I imagine rooms on the street would be noisy."
"Pick a corner room - if you don't specify King they'll give you a queen."
"Pay for a deluxe room, Standards are all "Garden Level"."
US$144 - US$329 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
