Kimpton Morrison House in Old Town Alexandria, VA, has reopened following a redesign that added a new 985 square foot Watermark Ballroom event space to the property. 

The new ballroom brings the 45-room hotel’s meeting space to a total of 2,800 square feet, allowing it to host weddings, meetings and events of up to 100 guests. The Watermark Ballroom can hold up to 80 guess and offers décor in tones of celadon, silvers and grays, a feature wall with elegant heron wallpaper and hand painted gold leaf accents, 10-foot-high ceilings, natural light and a modern interpretation of Colonial hand hooked rugs in a custom diamond pattern. The hotel’s other event space, the Chapter Boardroom, accommodates up to 25 and has wood paneled walls with mid-century lighting accents and modern brass shelves stocked with books.

The renovation also added a new dining venue, Ashlar Restaurant and Bar, which provides all catering under the direction of Chef Bobby Surdam. Cuisine is mid-Atlantic sourced modern American cuisine with an emphasis on handcrafted historically inspired cocktails. The hotel also offers a “Live Like a Local” meeting break option that includes Chef’s house made Virginia peanut brittle, a selection of house made jerky using meat from local Virginia purveyors such as Martin Farms, old fashioned candies found at the General Store at George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate and Virginia apple cider. Planners can also add an upgrade from local craft brewery Port City Brewing for an additional fee.

Other hotel amenities include mini-bars with local options, complimentary Wi-Fi for Kimpton Karma Rewards members, complimentary morning coffee and tea service in the hotel’s living room, hosted evening wine hour daily, and health-minded wellness options, such as complimentary custom PUBLIC Bike rentals and Gaiam yoga mats in every room for use during guests’ stays.

Complete hotel buyout package options start from $55,000 for two day meetings, weddings or corporate retreats.
