We had an intimate (22 guests) Friday evening wedding at the Morrison House and we can't say enough about the entire staff for their professionalism, friendliness, and competence. We actually booked the Morrison House about a month before it was to undergo a major renovation, and although we were a little nervous whether it would all be complete in time everything went off without a hitch. We cannot possibly name all the wonderful folks that contributed to the success of our wedding, but let me just name a few. Katie Rehnberg, the event coordinator, is amazing. Put simply, she was the lynchpin that kept the whole thing together. She was on top of every aspect, provided advice when needed based on her experience, never judged our decisions, and was just a pleasure to work with. Chef Robert prepared an amazing menu from appetizers to entrees and was always accessible and was very accommodating for our couple vegan guests. Martin, the head the event staff, was great. He ensured everything went as planned, checked in when necessary to ensure we were happy with everything, and was totally flexible when we decided to keep the reception and bar going for an extra half hour. Our bartender, as well, was spot on, professional, and kept an organized and always stocked bar. Since we went with the hotel's Elopement Package the Morrison House had either contracted or recommended venders for many of the other services we needed and everyone was as professional and competent as their own staff.

At the last minute we decided to hold our post-wedding brunch at the Morrison House and thanks to Katie, Martin, and the whole staff it went off perfectly.

No compliment is probably more fitting than if we had to do it all again or need an event space in the future we will not hesitate to go with the Morrison House.

We had a wonderful Friday evening wedding in October 2015 using the Morrison House's Elope With Your Friends package. We had a total of 35 people and everyone who attended raved about how beautiful the rooms were and how amazing the food tasted.

Katie the Catering Manager was on top of every detail which was especially helpful to me when my friend and day-of coordinator had her leave unexpectedly cancelled only two days before the wedding! Not only did Katie place everything exactly the way I wanted for the wedding, she added a few unexpected and thoughtful details which turned out beautifully.

I have a difficult time making decisions and was looking for a place that would provide a classy but intimate ceremony and reception space but in a wedding-in-a-box type of package. This place nailed it! The Elopement Package is a great value and, while priced for only 20 people, additional guests can be added (which is what we did). The Elopement Package includes a list of vendors to choose from for flowers, cake, music, and an officiant. We used local vendors from the list who were all easy and fun to work with. Our florist was Sweet Root Village, cake was from Alexandria Pastry Shop, and our guitarist was Jennifer Twombley. Everyone coordinated directly with the Catering Manager which made things so easy for me. The food and linens were also provided in-house. The food was excellent and the staff was incredibly friendly and very attentive to anything we needed.

Everything was very well-organized, well-coordinated, and an excellent value. If you are looking for an intimate wedding celebration that has all the class and beauty of a large wedding, I highly recommend the Morrison House for your event. Our friends could not stop talking about how much fun they had and how surprised they were that such a beautiful and intimate place existed under the radar in Old Town Alexandria.

Wow! That's all I can really say when looking back on my wedding day this past Saturday. The Morrison House did a WONDERFUL job making our day a special one. From the moment our guests were greeted, until the end when we were saying goodbye the next day, everyone was professional, friendly and helpful. Katie, the Morrison's wedding coordinator, did a great job making sure that all the i's were dotted, and the t's were crossed in terms of logistics for the ceremony and reception. She was always willing to answer all the questions I had, and was 100% available during the actual day in case I needed anything. Also, a shout out to Martin, who I believe is her right hand man, and Guyana (not sure of spelling), the operations manager, and Michael the bartender. They could not be more friendly, helpful and willing to make our day special! And I'm definitely one who loves to be organized and on top of things--that's how they are too, so we all worked great together. And I haven't even mentioned the venue--gorgeous! The transition from room to room was seamless, and our guests all commented on the great food, great atmosphere and friendly staff. I HIGHLY Recommend this venue for your wedding or any event! And this is coming from someone who wasn't even sure wanted a wedding--but after my experience at the Morrison, I'm so glad we did!!

After getting engaged, my fiancée and I wanted a small, intimate wedding, and were soon overwhelmed by the lack (and cost of!) venues in the DC area. When we found the elopement package at the Morrison House, we felt like we won the lottery! The package includes everything except the photographer for the venue (flowers, cake, food, open bar, musician, officiant, and I'm sure I'm forgetting a few other things!). And the vendors they have contracts with are top notch! Katie, the wedding coordinator, is so responsive and fun to work with. My guests were amazed by how beautiful the hotel and the rooms are and how helpful everyone was! If you're looking to have a small wedding, I'd definitely suggest you check out the Morrison House!!

I am very happy that we found The Morrison House. It was just perfect for our wedding needs. We wanted to have a very intimate wedding with family and friends, and The Morrison House fit what we needed perfectly.

We chose The Bundled Bliss Package since we were having a small wedding (17 people total). The package included the bouquet and boutonnière, cake, musician, officiant, and other services as well. Katie, the planner, was very accommodating and great to work with. She got back to us in a timely manner and made sure that everything ran smoothly. Katie helped make the night even more special.

The 3 course meal was delicious and the guests raved about the food. Our server was AMAZING...he worked very hard and paid attention to each guest to make sure that they were happy.

The accommodations are very comfortable and the staff is very friendly and professional. There was a bit of a mix up with the wedding suite, but the staff was very apologetic and took the customer service to the next level.

If you are looking for a boutique hotel with an intimate and warm feel, this is the place for you.

My wife & I recently had our wedding at the Morrison. It was 24 guests, which included my wife & I. We're both extremely happy with how everything turned out. The package we purchased included the officiant, musician, cocktail hour, & a full 3-course meal for all of our guests. If you're looking to do something very nice, but small (without breaking the bank), then this is definitely the way to go. Kudos to my wife for finding this place!

I am SOOOOOOOO happy, I found The Morrison House. It was just perfect for our wedding needs. We wanted to have a very intimate wedding, and wanted to find a location that was not too big and would not make the wedding feel empty.

We choose the elopement package, our total guest list was less than 30. Choosing The Morrison House made it very easy to plan a wedding. The package was inclusive of most of the things you need for your wedding, anything that was not included they will help you obtain.

We planned a winter holiday wedding and The Morrison House was decorated beautifully.

The food and beverages are great. It was very difficult for us to narrow down the selections after our tasting. All of our guest were pleased with the menu selections.

The accommodations are very comfortable and the staff is very friendly and professional. Even though we had our wedding during a VERY busy wedding season for the Morrison House (the last week of the year) the staff was very accommodating and very personal to our needs. The week of our wedding there was a wedding every day of the week yet every staff member called us by name and made sure we wanted for nothing.

If you are looking for a boutique hotel with a very warm feel this is the place for you.

We choose the elopment package that included (florist, wedding offical, musican, and catering). It made the wedding planning very easy. All of the vendor coordination is done through the Morrison House. All of the vendors were very timely in contacting us and were available for follown up. We had both our ceremony and reception at the Morrison House.

We had a small wedding (15 people total) and the Morrison House was the perfect location. The parlor is wonderfully intimate, the private dining rooms are stellar and the service we received from Sarah was first rate. Sarah worked to make our event memorable, from the set up, to the food selections, room reservations to working with our vendors. The service from all the staff we came into contact with was courteous, prompt and very professional. Our wedding went off beautifully and we would highly recommend the Morrison House Hotel for small weddings.
