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.

We had a wonderful experience with the Morrison House. The wedding package is a great value with amazing service by the entire staff. Sarah, the coordinator, made sure everything moved smoothly the day of and helped us through planning before hand. I could not imagine a better venue for a intimate wedding. The food is delectable and the staff made sure that we, the bride and groom, got first dibs on everything, which we appreciated. I would recommend the Morrison House to everyone and anyone having an intimate wedding.

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!

We used the Morrison House as our rehearsal dinner venue and the food and location were both perfect. Our wedding was at the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria so the Morrison House was extremely convenient for our wedding party and families to walk to. The food was perfect and the setting is beautiful in the private room where our dinner was held. The service during dinner was professional and the whole staff was wonderful.

During planning for the rehearsal however we ran into some issues. The event coordinator seemed a bit unresponsive and was not extremely helpful during planning. We were then switched to a smaller room without being told of the change and were told we could not fit the entire rehearsal dinner party in the smaller room. Once we proved that we had signed the contract and paid for the larger room our contract was rewarded but the inconvenience of the mixup was stressful during an already stressful time.

Overall the experience was a positive one but at time is was frustrating to work with them.

Morrison House with their catering package from The Grille was the best choice I could have made. I had a small wedding (22pp) and if you want a intimate but high class wedding, this is the right choice. The hotel has a lot of character inside and outside, so there isn't a lot of decorating to do. All of the guest were impressed how seamless the flow of events were. I had my ceremony and dinner reception with their bundled bliss package, which also includes some flowers, officiant, bar, and music (we chose a cellist). Sarah, the catering manager, was sweet and very professional. I gave her a set up list for the day, and everything was executed as planned without question. I wish I could remember their names, but all of the staff and butlers were the best. The guys transitioned the rooms so quickly, no one even noticed who or how it got done. I think some one from the front desk also helped my poor groom with his bow tie! The hotel itself has a warm and caring feeling, and everyone the Morrison House gave that feeling as well.

My only complaint is that their billing department is pretty much unavailable when you have questions and are not responsive. As you are planning your wedding and money is flying out the door, it just adds another layer of unnecessary stress. Payments went off without a hitch otherwise.

I would definitely use Morrison House again. I've already planned a 1 month anniversary dinner!

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.
