Hard to imagine a better place to stay. The charm of a boutique, historic inn, but the modern conveniences and amenities of a modern hotel. Charming, helpful, welcoming staff. Warm, caring, but not over-the-top. Genuine. Beautiful lobby, quiet alcoves, large quiet courtyard--a refuge in the middle of the city. Location is ideal. Two blocks from convention center. Close to neighborhood...

I enjoyed my 3 night stay so much! The staff was unfailingly polite and helpful. The location is perfect for enjoying the amenities of downtown while attending a meeting at the Convention Center. My room was cozy but with sophisticated decor; the only drawback was cool air drafting across the floor despite the heavy drapery, but 2 of my days...

65karin100, We definitely had very unseasonably cold weather last week! Thank you for taking the time to include many of the great attributes the hotel has, including our fantastic staff. Our favorite recommendation is when reviewers such as yourself tell future travelers that they will be back to stay at the hotel again. It is the highest form of praise....

I have stayed at the Morrison Clark in the past and always had a pleasant experience. I began staying at other hotels because they were more convenient to my son's apartments. But this time I decided I wanted a change from the large impersonal hotels and went back to the Morrison. I am so glad that I did and I...

Due to a meetup with others, I found myself at this beautiful gem of a boutique hotel in the center of DC. Couldn't get over the amenities and delightful charm for what seemed to me to be a bargain. Friendly helpful doormen and professional front desk staff made it all so pleasant. Historic property with a carriage house in the...

Spent four nights at the Morrison Clark between Christmas Day and New Year. If you want to avoid a 'chain' hotel then you couldn't go far wrong choosing this Boutique hotel. Firstly, the staff! very friendly and nothing was too much trouble!. A special mention to Abel on the bar. We choose queen guestroom which was more than adequate for...

I stayed here in early November for four nights at the time of the election. The hotel is easy to find and is about a 10 minute walk from the Metro Center station. Along the way there's a few restaurants/coffee shops so there is plenty to visit around the hotel. The location is good - DC is all about walking...

Got this hotel at a great rate for an event at the convention center, around the corner. All of our friends were staying at the 'big corporate hotel' attached to the convention center for a much higher price. We were one block further and so much happier here. The room was lovely! Monster bed with fancy sheets and pillows and...

The Morrison-Clark is a gem. It's well-appointed and has all the comforts you could want — gleaming and spacious bathroom, big comfortable bed — but it's also so refreshing to get to stay somewhere that isn't just a hotel chain, and actually has some character and personality. The staff were all exceedingly warm and responsive.
