A peek into the Morrison House in Old Town Alexandria

I'm in northern Virginia for business this week and managed to got a great deal at the Morrison House, yet another hotel in the Kimpton family of hotels. I'm a loyal Kimpton visitor because their hotels are usually small, boutique style, and pet friendly (without threatening pet policies or deposits). Each Kimpton is a little different and this one is considerably more traditional than the others in which I've stayed.

I'll take some pictures of the public spaces later today, but here's a look at the charming room in which I'm staying. I love how they've combined traditional case goods with modern art and lighting that bridges the gap.

Neat little details: there are only 45 rooms in the entire hotel, a complimentary glass of wine arrived at my door a few minutes after I got here, I got a $10 credit towards the minibar, coffee and tea are served in the parlor each morning, and the hotel looks like a large home, just off the main shopping street in Old Town Alexandria. I'm steps away from stores and restaurants, but feel like I'm in a secluded home. Oh and as I was winding down for the night, the housekeeper showed up with chocolates and a card with tomorrow's weather report written on it. So charming!

As usual, I'm not compensated for my sneak peeks into stores and hotels. These are just places I like.


  1. Great photos! Love Kimpton's pet policy too... and would stay at their hotels more often, they're just out of my company's travel budget too often... :( I am, however, thinking about staying at Atlanta's new Hotel Palomar with husband and dogs just for fun. (I love hotels).

  2. Welcome to the 'hood! Awesome to have a peek inside the Morrison House. I live right down the street from it but have never visited. Enjoy!

  3. What a charming and beautiful hotel! Thanks for sharing- I really enjoyed it :).

  4. Yes...welcome to our town, wish I didn't live here so I could stay in the Morrison house! Thanks for the inside peek.
