Arriving at the specified check in time of 3pm we were disappointed that rooms were not ready. We were offered a nice but small dark basement room facing the courtyard under some renovation or told that if we waited we could have a higher floor facing either outwards on into the courtyard. I specified that I'd like a higher room... More

Was staying here because of proximity to a trade show at the Washington Convention Center. Booked well ahead, and when my co-worker and I arrived, the gentleman at the front desk said he didn't have one of the reservations. We had booked a number of rooms for myself and my co-workers, so we were surprised. Showing up at a hotel... More

This small hotel will give you an experience of the old mansions in DC. Although it is a little off the beaten path, It is close enough to walk to many of DCs beloved monuments and sights. The small lobby has an enormous floral arrangement in the center, and the reception counter is an antique marvel. The rooms are small,... More

My friend and I got a really good deal on this hotel. The rooms are nice--cute hotel. It was a nice one time experience. The location was alright if you are ok with walking or catching a cab. They put us in a room by their "courtyard." They neglected to tell us when we booked that there was construction there.... More

This hotel bases its reputation on a supposed charming, historic style. Admittedly, the decoration follows this line ; yet the charm is immediately broken by several factors that make you thing that old, classy furniture does not compensate for an uncomfortable stay. Firstly, you realize that the hotel is currently surrounded by a huge building in construction: noise all day,... More

I am currently staying here on a business trip. The person at the front desk must have thought I don't have a job because he gave me the crappiest room on the first floor. They are doing construction right outside my window and it woke me up very early in the morning. After participating in a career fair the following... More

It will definitely be on my list of hotels to revisit the next time I... More

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

Jenopolis, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you found our historic property right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Capitol Hill/Penn Quarter. It's certainly the right atmosphere for a romantic weekend. I'm sorry to hear that we were less than ideal with our mattress comfort and that you had issues 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

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
