Took my wife to what amounted to the pandemic version of the Cherry Blossom Festival. We originally booked an Airbnb by Logan circle. The area was beautiful, reminded me of an upscale street in Brooklyn, where I grew up. Unfortunately, the apartment had too many little issues to be comfortable. We ended up just leaving and staying at this hotel. We were so happy with the comfort of our stay. Have we had better, yes, but for the price and peace of mind, we definitely had a great time and I will be staying here again. You can feel the history, and I look forward to experiencing what the place can do without all the restrictions.

We will definitely stay here again! Great location! Everyone was kind and helpful, room was clean, shower was hot! It has a nice, quiet courtyard with a water feature. Nice place to relax. The parking garage is a little tricky to park in, but they are there to help you.

Our two nights at the Morrison-Clark Hotel were the perfect urban getaway! The property is exquisite, very well-maintained and nicely appointed, with some gorgeous public areas, including an enclosed courtyard space and a lovely lobby. Staff were welcoming and extremely helpful, and went above and beyond to ensure our comfort throughout our stay. Our ‘parlor’ room was comfortable, spotless and extremely quiet. Location is perfect—a quick walk to museums, restaurants, and the Metro. Recommend highly, and hope to return soon.

This is a lovely facility, very tastefully decorated. It does not feel like a chain hotel, even a nice chain hotel, in any way. Our room was on the small side, but very comfortable and very quiet. It is hard to fully assess the place though, as covid has shut down the bar, restaurant, and most other services. The staff, to the person, were all excellent. The sprawling front porch was a perfect urban oasis.

I was excited to try this place because it got great reviews. I even paid 25% extra than staying at another hotel near by. But, i a bit disappointed by the room. No bottled water. Bathroom light broken, someone came to repair the light and it’s still broken likely due to faulty wiring. No bath plug to take a bath. No light by the shower so all very dark. And stains on the furniture. The view is nice and the area convenient. Service was nice too. Bath products are cheap—knock off bath and body works which was quite surprising. And again, no bottled water or anything. Hotels and inns are about the amenities otherwise I would’ve chosen an Airbnb. Disappointed.
