My wife and I stayed at the Morrison House for the 4th of July holiday and couldn't have been happier with our experience. The hotel is situated in a beautiful Federal Style mansion in a quiet corner of Old Town Alexandria. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the King Street Metro Station or a $5 cab ride. From there, Washington is an easy 10 minute subway ride on either of two lines.
Although there is no 24 tea or coffee service, the staff were only too happy to accomodate my wife with a late night cup of hot tea.
The king room was a little tight but nicely furnished in period style pieces and the bathroom was more than adequate with double sinks in a marble countertop.
There are many quaint restaurants all within easy walking distance of the hotel. There is a wonderful bakery a mere 2 minute walk from the hotel at the corner of King and Alfred streets that opens early for that first coffee or tea of the day with a wonderful selection of breads, sandwiches and pastries.
We'd definitely recommend a stay at the Morrison House if you are looking for a quiet, quaint visit and staff whom indulge their guests.
