My husband and I stayed the night here for a romantic weekend. It is a lovely surprise, this Victorian hotel in the midst of Capitol Hill/Penn Quarter! It is quaint and charming, but the enormous construction site right outside the window is really a downside and takes away from the charm. The rooms were lovely, but there were problems with... More

I tend to prefer rural and rustic, but wanting to spend the night in DC I found this to be a likely good place to stay, based upon my research. It was above and beyond what I expected. The Morrison-Clark Historic Inn is in the midst of renovation. What is open is charming: a pleasant lobby and breakfast room, an... More

Andrew E., Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel! I'm pleased to hear you liked the hotel from the moment you walked in. Its ambiance and charm is apparent immediately upon entering the Lobby and happy you were able to take it all in and appreciate all aspects of the hotel. The room you mention is a... More

To say that we enjoyed staying here would be an understatement. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and although the front garden and hotel are undergoing renovations, it was still a beautiful stay. We were booked into the Deluxe Victorian room (I believe, room 215) and they even have REAL KEYS for the room! As a hotel junkie, this was like... More

tellemarie, Thank you for the great review and all the beautiful pictures you posted. Our balcony rooms are so peaceful for drinking a morning coffee or evening cocktail on, while overlooking the city. We often get compliments on our Frette linens and plush pillows, those will maintain a staple at the hotel for years to come. Your critique of the... More

What a charming hotel! The Victorian decor is elegant - beautiful art and decorative objects are everywhere. The staff is attentive and helpful. The hotel is expanding so the restaurant was closed but a nice continental breakfast was available in a sunny parlor. I wish I had time to linger over the newspapers provided. The location is great, on a... More

I recently traveled to DC for business as a single female traveler and found the accommodations quaint and comfortable even while the building is being seriously renovated. The service is something rarely found - a genteel approach at making an effort to meet every need. My favorite thing was coming in after a long hard day and being offered and... More

Smartinellicpa, Compliments to our team and service are our greatest achievement. Thank you for your kind words; I'm so pleased to hear that you found the Inn quaint and comfortable despite the expansion project next door. Relaxing with a glass of wine after a day of meetings is something many of our guests look forward to and we are happy... More

We absolutely loved this charming, historic small hotel right in the heart of DC, close to all the city's beautiful monuments, museums, restaurants and sights. The staff is very friendly, attentive, and helpful with suggestions for restaurants, transportation, whatever. They always seem most concerned with the comfort of their guests. The inn's decor, fascinating old photos, furniture and general ambiance... More

Rosemary M, Our staff wear their city ambassador hats well! I was thrilled to hear they helped to compliment your stay at our Inn with excellent service. Our location is ideal and we are thankful for it, but the comfort of our guest is always our main concern. I'm glad we hit the mark with you and your friends. More

I have stayed there for just a night. Everything was excellent! From the lobby of the hotel to the breakfast on the next day. They welcomed us with homemade cookies and iced tea with fruits. In the morning we got besides the full breakfast, a free copy of the Washington Post and Diplomat.

We stayed at Morrison-Clark Inn for seven nights and were charmed by it. From beginning to end and by all staff, the service was awesome. The location is great, especially for those fit to walk (indeed a 15 minutes walk to the White House and also the Mall) and close to public transport (bus 64 in front of the inn... More

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for a last minute weekend getaway in the spring (March I believe). We chose it for its location: very conveniently located near the convention center (we went to a beer festival there) and only about a 1.5 mi walk to the National Mall and all the museums. Plenty of restaurants nearby as well.... More
