This hotel knocks it out of the park. Beautiful rooms, inviting lobby with bar, excellent restaurant--and I have never encountered such a warm, welcoming, helpful staff in any hotel I have ever stayed in. It has a boutique feel though it's not tiny. Several historic buildings linked together, including a chinese church! But it was the warmth and caring staff...

I just had the most idyllic 2 nights at the Morrison Clark. It was such a lovely hotel with incredible attention to detail. The service was so warm and generous. The bellman, Fazad, consistently went above and beyond, as did all the other staff. I was stunned by what a positive experience it was. Couldn't recommend it more highly and...

Charming hotel in D.C. they renovated the entire hotel, the rooms are super nice, ask for the new building side. The restaurant is super nice and great bar scene. Service very good. I recommend while in D.C. area.

A restaurant housed in a Historic Inn, with a welcoming atmosphere, very attentive and awesome service. I enjoyed the flavor of the shrimp dumpling, delicious lobster pot pie and the cheese cake was delicious. worth another visit.

Dinner with 6 friends at this restaurant was an epic fail on everything. Meals looked lovely but missed the mark on taste almost every time. A lobster coddy appetizer was really a fish cake with 2 or 3 small pieces of lobster. The halibut was the consistency and taste of a pencil eraser. Two steak dinners arrived cold and when...

catecomm, Thank you for your honest review of your dining experience. Unfortunately, we definitely missed the mark with you and your party. Based on our high ratings on Yelp and OpenTable, this is certainly not the norm for us and I'm very sorry that you had the experience that you did. I hope that you will considering trying us again...

The Bell staff is remarkable.. specifically Haile and Faisal. Consummate professionalism and customer service. The hotel is beautiful and the recent makeover maintains vintage details and modern comforts.

I have to tell you upfront, I'm a bit of a hotel snob! I prefer new, hip and CLEAN --especially with the bedbug epidemic. This place, I'm happy to say, has scored on alllll levels. (Trust me, I even peeked at mattress pads, behind bed boards etc 'looking' for anything that might be remotely yucky.) All good! An added plus:...

I stayed in this hotel recently and was very impressed. The room was charming and well equipped. The staff was extremely helpful, the restaurant was excellent with a reasonably priced and varied menu. Proximity to the Convention center is another asset.

This is an historic hotel in the heart of Washington DC. We stayed in the newly renovated section and the rooms were modern, spacious and comfortable. All staff from the doorman, reception and wait staff were all friendly and welcomed us every time we left and returned to the hotel. The internet is fast and stable. They offer free tea...
