We flew in to Washington DC Sunday May 18 2014. We were greeted by Teshome & he made every effort to make us feel welcome and at home. We've traveled together to Mexico, New York, Florida, Las Vegas, etc. for years and are used to staying at the bigger hotel resorts. I must say it was refreshing to stay at...

We enjoyed having you as our guests as much as you enjoyed staying with us! Teshome is a wonderful asset to our team and I’m so happy to hear that he made a great connection with you. As you said, staying at the Inn is a much more personal experience than with big box hotels, while still enjoying all the...

traveling on business and looking for more than a generic hotel. the Morrison Clark, is like taking a step back in time. I was met at the door morning and night with a pleasant greeting form the doorman. The decor is simple, yet elegant and classy. the room smelled clean and fresh and was very comfortable. Location is very convenient.

Clark K, I’m so glad you decided to find a hotel outside of the standard chain hotel brands. We often find that business people who travel frequently, our “road warriors”, are so use to being just a room number when staying at other hotels. Our staff is dedicated to making each of our guests feel welcomed and at home. Our...

Stayed here 4 nights. Staff was amazing, Room was very comfortable. They were renovating and doing major construction and you would have never known from our room. Great location and great history in the building.

Our first visit to DC...we chose the Morrison-Clark Inn because the reviews sounded like a place we could call home for 4 days...SO perfect for us! We love a place we can feel warm and safe, but we don't need a pool, dining, and other fancy frills. From the moment the doorman greeted us after a long bus ride until...

The Morrison-Clark Inn exceeded my expectations at every turn. The room was very large and well appointed with a bed that I could sleep in for several days (I don't normally sleep well in hotels.) The location downtown is close to many businesses as well as Chinatown and the Verizon Center. The staff anticipated my needs and provided superior service...

We were in town for a conference in late February/early March. We knew that the Inn was under construction and that there were concerns about noise. We were awake early and while there was some construction noise due to the Inn's huge renovation/enlargement project, we used ear plugs and slept just fine. The proprietors offered a lovely breakfast during this...

Reviewed 23 April 2014

The hotel has a Victorian Era feel to it. The rooms were of a decent size. While the ventilation leaves a little to be desired, the location is really good. From the hotel, it is a very short walk to Chinatown, the Convention Center, and other attractions. It is about a 30-minute walk to the White House from the hotel....

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.
