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...

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...
