Morrison House Hotel Lands on Best Hotels List
Among a Four Seasons property in Hawaii and a Fairmont property in San Francisco, it was nice to see our area’s little gem included. And although I haven’t had the opportunity to stay at the boutique hotel, I will definitely recommend it to our out-of-town guests.
Although it was built in 1985, one of Virginia’s finest boutique hotels was designed after the grand manor houses of the Federal period and thus fits right into Old Town. The enchantment begins the moment you ascend the curving staircase to its white-columned portico, where a friendly butler greets you at the door of the marble foyer. It’s not stuffy by any means; a polite but relaxed informality reigns here…Each of the spacious, luxuriously appointed guest quarters is individually decorated and furnished with Federal-period reproductions. Some have mahogany four-poster beds, brass chandeliers, and decorative fireplaces. In your room, you’ll find two phones, fresh flowers, down comforters, and robes.
Sounds lovely, no?
