I've stayed in many US hotels when there on business - Hyatts and Hiltons, Marriotts and Sheratons. These big-chain hotels are so bleak and soul-less; every smile is scripted, every detail mapped out by corporate policy. Not so the Morrison Clark. I was there for a week while on business in DC, and it completely transformed my stay in Washington.... More

I hadn't been to Morrison-Clark in ages and it has expanded and improved. We were there with two other couples for brunch and service was excellent, food was very good and while it isn't rocket science, the drinks were well-prepared. The facility is lovely clean and well-conceived so what's not to like?

As per the other reviews it is a pain to have to go outside the property to get a reasonably priced cup of coffee in the morning when you want it (versus room service). Room 116 is on the ground floor with a light (from this actual property!) shining directly into the room. While there is a shade, a blackout... More

I loved the location, the staff, and the facilities. Free Wi-Fi!! My only quibble is the lack of convenient coffee in the morning. To have to stumble down to the lobby and then walk up a flight to the back of restaurant for coffee was a lot to ask of an addict like me :) This boutique hotel has lovely... More

Advertises that there is wifi, please be aware this wifi does not work! We were there for 3 nights and could not get a single web page loaded. Phoned reception who told me the hotel was full and that's why it wasn't working. Utter nonsense. Went around the corner every morning to a cafe to use their wifi. Large flight... More

Sasa1986, I'm terribly sorry to hear about the issues you encountered. As you mentioned, we do offer complimentary WiFi and upon check in the front desk agent would have given you the password to successfully log on, as it is closed network and not open to the public. I fear that may have been the main issue, as our signal... More

Comfortable but small room. Business center was small - 1 computer with free printing. The fitness center was tiny and had no windows. I did not like spending time in there. Bed was comfortable. Room was quiet.

The hotel was modern and clean. Staff was very nice and helpful. Location was in walking distance of everything. Great al around. Would go back. I would recommend to friends. The room was small but it is what is expected in a city hotel. Bed was comfortable.

Expertly cooked diinner tuna and duck to start. Steaks cooked and presented to perfection. Well priced along with an extensive wine list. Been in the U.S. for 3 weeks. Probably the best meal we have had. A must visit in D.C.

We loved this boutique hotel for a weekend trip in DC. It was in a great area, the staff were friendly, and the rooms were so clean. The rooms were a good size and the hotel was chic and modern. I would definitely stay here again!

We were here only overnight for the #summersixteen concert. We were in a great area, walking distance to verizon center and all the shops by 11th and 12th street. Very quiet and posh! no complaints about the room, besides calling for an iron which was there less than 5 minutes. Great helpful staff! Their bath products are through bath and... More
