Collection Notes: Morrison House

 

A warm, upscale tavern in the heart of Alexandria, VA, Morrison House is part of the Autograph Collection of Kimpton Hotels. Celebrating seasonal farm-to-table fare and American classic cocktails, whiskeys, and craft beer, this property creates a casual dinning experience with a touch of elegance.



Boasting beautiful interiors by David Hill Design, we curated an eclectic salon wall. This art collection finds inspiration in the great masters of the past with an added touch of modern abstraction. Discover the artists who made this collection come to life.
