The only reason I'm putting two stars is because of price and the staff are nice, but not personable. I'll just bullet point the reasons for disliking this whole experience at this hotel. I'm also not the type of person to send my food back because I order one side dish and received another; I understand people make mistakes. -... More

We recently stayed at the Morrison Clark hotel in Washington DC. It is within walking distance to many of the areas attractions (if you like to walk). It is about 4 blocks to the nearest Metro line (which is a great way to get around the DC area). Continental breakfast was weak, but the coffee was good. Their web page... More

Hotel was very romantic and cool at first. Staff was very friendly. Hotel rooms are fairly small but not too bad. Parking price is outrageous at $38 and the valet put a huge scuff and scratch on my car without telling me! Of course they weren't liable for it >.> would not recommend.

I booked this on the strength of the Tripadvisor page thinking that the few negative comments were not the norm. I wrong could i be. On arrival there was considerable construction work going on on one side of the hotel, the receptionist said it wouldn't continue on Saturday, it did. The receptionist was surley and behaved as though our arrival... More

We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions. We choose it because it is a good value on the weekends and close to the Metro. Currently they are undergoing a major addition to the property. It would have been nice to know they would be working at 7 a.m. on a weekend morning. Hopefully included in this is renovations... More

I have stayed here several times while on business in DC and love it. Not only is the place full of history but it is cozy and the staff is very welcoming. Yes the rooms are small and yes you do not get the same kind of amenities that you would at a larger property but if that is what... More

If you like old historic properties this is a neat place to stay. You will be paying primarily for location, though. Rooms are tiny, amenities are not typical of what you would find in a more modern hotel - TV is tiny for example. Street noise is definitely an issue, and the exercise room consists of exactly two machines. I... More

I return here every year to stay while on a work-related trip. If you like character and a bit of historic charm, then this a wonderful place to go. They are currently in the middle of renovations, but that will only make it better. They offset the daytime construction with a complimentary continental breakfast and a glass of wine. Staff... More

Of the dozen or so DC area hotels I have used in this price range,.the Morrison-Clark would be in the bottom 25 percent. Between average and poor on the Tripadvisor system. My rating of three stars leans a bit on the generous side. Location was good - convenient to downtown, an easy walk from Convention Center / Mt Vernon Metro.... More

Lovely building with spacious rooms, right in downtown in walking distance of tons of sites and good food. Construction going on while I was there so I awoke to that every morning, but I had to be up for work anyway so if you plan to sleep in, probably not the best choice. Staff was always friendly. If you want... More
