We stayed here 2 nights in April (March for Science) and had a very pleasant experience. All the staff were welcoming and helpful and the property is lovely and clean. Although I had booked a 'superior queen' room, we had a very comfortable king size bed in a room overlooking the interior courtyard. The room and bathroom were good sized...

We really enjoyed our stay at Morrison Clark. It was so nice to be in a historic place that was still super close to the convention center. There is a nice history to the buildings and it is a nice reprieve from the sterile downtown area. The hotel has been completely updated so the rooms are actually very modern looking....

We were in Washington for a convention. This hotel had a great location very close to the convention center. The staff was very friendly. The rooms are small but, typical for an older but modern property within an inner city location. The rooms were quite comfortable, with very comfortable beds. It was very quiet and convenient to downtown restaurants and...

Door staff are friendly; desk staff is rude and completely indifferent. Smoke alarm went off at midnight and no one was able to address the "chirp" until the morning. Bedbugs were miserable. They asked what i wanted...i said a comped night. They offered...after 6 hours of not responding to men...15% off. Rude, indifferent and unsuitably dirty. PASS.

Traveller60035, I'm sorry to hear of your impressions of our hotel. Based on most of the reviews on TripAdvisor, this is certainly not the normal opinion our guests have. Should any future guests like to connect with us, we'd be happy to take your call and reassure you of both the quality and cleanliness of the hotel and the attentiveness...

The hotel is really nice- rooms have been renovated and very pretty When we arrived I noticed a smell like a damp rag. We put on the ac and went out. When we returned I noticed the same smell I called housekeeping and a pleasant gentleman said that he noticed it too and he would have the rug shampooed We...

Geri, Thank you for your honest review. We have already looked at the service call log and are working on the issue immediately, before any further guests get placed in that room. We hope that if your travels bring you back to DC, you will consider staying with us again.

I was in town for an international conference and was late in arranging my accommodations. Other hotels near the Convention Center were already full, and so in some ways my choice of Morrison-Clark was a default based on availability and proximity to the Convention Center. As someone who generally prefers boutique hotels to major chains, I was more than pleasantly...

What a gem! The hotel was, quite simply, outstanding. It was "Four Seasons" quality in every respect. Every single member of the (ample) staff -- bellman, doorman, front desk, house staff, telephone operator - demonstrated impeccable client service, and were respectful yet friendly and went out of their way to see if they could be helpful. Our room (in the...

This place was comfortable and in a great location - I wasn't paying the bill, so can't comment on value. The team were welcoming when I arrived several hours late due to a delayed flight, which was good. I'd echo other comments about the service in the bar and restaurant being a little on the slow side, though I wasn't...

We were going to a conference at the Marriott Marquis and the conference rooms there were sold out, and I'm so glad we stayed at the Morrison Clark a block away. It was quiet and classy and old-fashioned in some ways, but modernized and very clean. It has a funky layout because they connected two 19th century buildings together at...
