We rushed into the Morrison House worried about being late for an appointment. They took care of everything and we left for our appointment completely relaxed. The staff was very friendly and competent. There were three staff members that I wanted to acknowledge. Jose ( who took our bags and parked our car), John (waiter at breakfast) , and Stephanie...

The Morrison Hotel was very warm and inviting. The staff was very accomodating and greeted you with a smile. The beds were HUGE and very comfortable. The decor was very pretty. Even our little Yorkie had a good sleepover at the Morrison :)

We loved the Morrison Hotel. Our room was very comfortable, and we enjoyed the wine reception offered in the afternoons. It was nice to relax and visit with other guests. The staff was friendly and helpful. We also appreciated the coffee each day in the lobby.

We live in the area but I wanted a special overnight to surprise my husband for his birthday. He had stayed there years ago and always commented on how we had to go back together, so I finally decided to do it. I was equally impressed, we enjoyed a King Deluxe room that was beautifully appointed, and very quiet. The...

I have described the Morrison House to friends on one of two ways: 1. As a Little Jewel Box. 2. As Ritz Lite (meaning with most of the splendid qualities of a Ritz Carlton - but as 1/2 to 1/3rd the price.

Our stay was lovely. All of the hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the hotel location was excellent, and our room was outstanding. We had a great time. My only constructive criticism is that the only parking is valet... The valet service was fast, but there's something about feeling like you can't come or go without needing to call...

This is quintessential Old Town Alexandria, Virgina! The beautiful, stately, 18th century style Morrison House has been a fixture in Old Town Alexandria for almost 20 years.

Only when I returned home did I realize that the Morrison House is mentioned in the "1,000 Places to See Before You Die" book and it is most worthy of its acclaim.
