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.

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...

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...

L Frank, You hit the nail on the head in summarizing the hotel! It's a perfect alternative to the generic convention hotels in the area while maintaining the upscale quality we pride ourselves on. Our Junior and Parlor Suites are always a huge hit with guests, glad you enjoyed it. We look forward to having you back for your next...

Usually when I can I try and stay at historic hotels. First time I stayed only a night. It was a good experience. I booked it to stay another three days 1 week later when I can again for a conference. The front desk person Corixa was rude and seemed angry at me for trying to book an hour earlier...

shoomer888, I'm so sorry to hear about your second stay with us. This is certainly not the norm and unacceptable. We strive to provide outstanding customer service and did not meet the mark with your most recent trip. I do hope that you'll return so we can regain your trust in us.

The hotel is recently refurbished. Service is really strong, rooms are small but nice and up to date. The restaurant is really good. Service in restaurant is a bit slow but I believe that's because of a staffing levels. Perhaps someone was out sick. The hotel has several small sitting areas that add a nice touch. Very close to the...
