If you are looking for a hotel in Washington then look no further. Located in a quiet area but within easy walking distance of all the sights, this elegant mansion will certainly impress you with its high standards. The staff are very efficient but have the ability to treat you as not just a guest but as a friend. The... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Morrison-Clark Inn. We came in on the metro, and there are two stations that are somewhat close (no more than a five or ten minute walk). It was very easy to find and we were usually greeted at the door. We didn't use the metro at all during our stay because,... More

I was surprised at just how nice this hotel was -- a sophisticated, classic decor. I was in the newer part -- the older part still has original fireplaces and such. My room overlooked the main street but it was so very quiet and peaceful in my room. The service was great --- everyone was super friendly. When I asked... More

Maribel, Our staff loves to give impromptu history tours of the Inn! There is so much to tell and we enjoy sharing it with others. The Front Desk may have given you a full history in print of the Inn, but if not you can also access it on our webiste http://www.morrisonclark.com/History . As a solo traveller, being and feeling...

The location of this hotel is perfect for exploring Washington. You can walk from there through downtown to The White House and the Mall, I would recommend it on this alone. The actual hotel is also very nice, my room was spacious with a lot of character, a comfortable bed and huge shower! My friends staying in the same hotel... More

LPAustralian, Thank you for taking the time to tell others about our great location, good size rooms, and overall positive experience at our hotel. Our Sunday Special is a great deal when you book direct with the hotel on our morrisonclark.com website for a Sunday night stay. I hope to see you again on your next trip to DC! More

After spending a few days on the road and staying in hotels that were rated far better than they actually were; walking into the lobby of the Morrison-Clark Inn was like entering an oasis. This expertly renovated Japanese temple is a blend of that culture along with a wonderful new decor. The instant I entered the lobby there were people... More

A great place, located very central to all of Washington. The Room was a little small, but had all that was needed. Great amount of breakfast places and coffee shops nearby. 5 - 10 minute walk to Fords Theatre and the White House. Valet Parking only at the location, but compared to parking prices in the city, it wasn't horrible.

CirquieChaps, Great tips for future travelers! As you said, most everything is within 5-10 minutes walking distance, including site seeing and many options for meals. I'm glad the room had everything you needed for your stay. We look forward to seeing you again if your travels bring you back to the Nation's Capital. More

Reasons why I would not return: Room was super tiny, felt like we were very cramped They forgot the baby crib we had previously booked, and it was more like a play pen which added to the lack of space. No wheel chair access, so made having a stroller a bit of an issue, no ramps and no automatic doors.... More

946anonymous, Thank you for your honest review of the hotel. I'm sorry we missed the mark in communicating you to the many features of the hotel. We do have handicap/stroller access just outside the main entrance and you should have been guided in that direction for ease of getting in and out of the Lobby. As you mentioned, our portable...

We stayed in the renovated portion of this hotel and everything was wonderful. The room itself was spacious, very nicely decorated and quiet (we were on the 6th floor in a junior suite). Jessica and Brittany at reception were extremely helpful, as were the staff in general. The renovation blends the new and modern with Asian touches to honor the... More

I booked this hotel for a couple reasons. First was the location-it is within walking distance to the Mall, a Metro, and major historic attractions, but not in the thick of things. Secondly, it is a small recently renovated boutique-style hotel, and as I wasn't brining my kids on this trip, I wanted something special. I wasn't disappointed. While most... More
