The Morrison House gave us a lovely experience. The rooms were first rate, the staff was friendly and happy. Kimpton does it right. We enjoyed the restaurant, but it wasn't quite five star, so I gave this a four star rating.

My husband and I found this hotel outstanding, it was the most romantic place we have ever stayed. We found the staff perfect, the rooms were immaculate, you couldn't find anything wrong. They allow pets, so we brought our dog Murphy with us, and it made it even better. When you stay at a Kimpton Hotel, you have stayed at...

I booked this place on a whim (a little while ago, I forgot to write the review) and never has anything booked blind turned out so right. Great hotel.

My husband & I stayed here in 2 separate occasions in June (9 nights in total).

What a fantastic hotel! This was my first experience with Morrison House, but it definitely won't be my last! The staff was very accommodating, and bent over backwards to make this a nice experience, from helping me with my luggage, to the evening wine reception. It was beautifully decorated, with a type of personality that gave it almost a bed...

The Morrison House, a small, boutique hotel very close to Olde Towne Alexandria is perfect for some peace and quiet and to get away from the usual generic hotel. Although the rooms are on the small side, the beds are great, and everything is at your fingertips. The very best comment we can make about this little gem is the...

I had a bad experience here because of dogs. Our room was spacious and comfortable but with minimal amenities - no local map or tourist information, nasty industrial shampoo made of sodium laureth sulphate. The coffee in the downstairs lounge, an organic Guatemalan variety, is terrific, bit only available until 10 a.m. The big disappointment was the dogs and the...
