My husband and I stayed at the Morrison House, part of the Marriott Autograph Collection, while visiting a friend in the area. We only stayed one night but really relaxed and enjoyed the property. We had a very spacious king room. It had a fireplace in the seating area that made the room quite charming. Bathroom was Marriott quality. There...

This hotel has recently been remodeled and has been taken over by Marriott and is part of their Autograph Collection which includes unique hotels. The rooms are comfortable and bright and the location in the middle of old town is terrific. We enjoyed dinner in their new restaurant and everything was perfectly prepared. Monique, the manager, was extremely helpful and...

Delightful stay, wish we could stay longer. Morrison House is a cross between hotel and Bed and Breakfast, with a distinctly boutique feel. Nice cozy bar, convenient dining area, comfy sitting area downstairs, all topped by very polite and helpful staff. A terrific location in Old Town, a shuttle is available to transport to and from DCA. We didn't need...

We have had a wonderful stay. Staff was great. We couldn't figure out the tv, they sent someone to show us (power button, duh lol!) super comfy beds. Very quiet. Perfect location! Literally walk out and you are next to the shops and restaurants. Stayed here on our way to UMD.

Very clean and boutique feel. Ashley at the front desk was incredibly helpful. Parking is an issue- I left the GM a voicemail but have note yet heard back. Otherwise, this will be my new go to place while in D.C. !

We just spent 2 nights at the lovely Morrison House in downtown Alexandria. We had a wonderful stay and the staff were very attentive and eager to make sure we had everything we needed. The room was perfectly beautiful, spacious and immaculate. The restaurant opens for breakfast at 7 AM during the week but didn't open until 8 on Sat....

The hotel is in a great location steps from King St. It is a small, pretty, boutique hotel with comfortable rooms and excellent, friendly and personalized service. The bar and dining room are also small but that is offset by the calm and quiet environment.

Marriott has assumed ownership and though it is transition, I was definitely pleased with the service, room and staff. The bar leaves a bit to be desired and I anxiously await wine tastings and new chef. Great location in a wonderful place.

I've stayed t the hotel twice now and have really enjoyed it. The rooms are well appointed and the location is fantastic, but the greatest thing this hotel has going for it is the staff. Each time we've come in the staff has gone above and beyond to accommodate us. From the door man to the front desk attendant to...

Recently I visited this hotel after Marriott purchase the property. At first the look seems to be cleaner, but that was just deceiving. The staff was totally different from the Kimpton property. Before when I drove up, a valet would be there to grab my keys and the Bellman was there to grab my bags. This time I walked in...
