in for a overnight

very friendly staff welcomed me for a one night stay. They did not have equipment on site for the room to accommodate me as a hearing impaired traveler. Made other arrangements to assure I awoke to catch my flight. Very small room but lovely and fine for a quick stay. great location.

historic & cozy hotel.

I love this historic & cozy hotel. currently this hotel is under the construction so if you really concern about noise, tell the staff before you check in. in my case I checked out at the evening and got up early so it didn't matter. and hotel gives you continental breakfast for free.

Wonderful location, setting, and staff!

This is a small jewel in the midst of all the best that DC has to offer visitors. Staff is excellent with service, suggestions, friendly care and concern for guests' comfort and convenience. Hotel is elegant, historical, interesting in itself in this town full of American history. Construction was not a problem and the added rooms will make this an even better destination for the future. Thanks for helping us locate this gem of a small hotel!

Great physical location, but too much construction

I stayed at the hotel due to its close proximity to the convention center. Everything was lovely about the hotel, aside from the early morning construction taking place outside of my window. The staff were very helpful and accommodating and I enjoyed the overall feel of the hotel. I would stay there again if in the DC area. It is within walking distance to both the White House (approx. 1 mile) and the Convention Center (2 blocks) and significantly cheaper than other hotels in the area. Their amenities are comparable to the more expensive hotels: daily complimentary bottled water, complimentary breakfast, free wifi, and mini bar in the room. Most importantly, there were no concerns regarding cleanliness!

Elegant and friendly

As usual, I was very pleased with my stay at the Morrison Clark Inn this week end. The staff is eager to please and so friendly. The space is elegant and clean. It was a pleasure even with the construction going on to expand the hotel. I hope to go back again soon.

2 rooms

I rented two rooms, one for my wife and I, one for my elderly mother and my daughter. Same price for both rooms. Ours was larger and had a couch. Their room was half the size and only had one small bed. I ended up paying extra for a room with 2 beds. But that room had construction going on outside at 7 am. Good thing we weren't in them much. Otherwise a nice quaint old hotel.

Beautiful Hotel for the price

The hotel was beautiful and it had a lot of charm and character. I liked that it wasn't your standard looking room and hallway. We got a reduced rate since it was under construction. I could never afford to pay the normal rate, nor would I want to. The construction took away from the beauty of the outside of it, but you couldn't tell from the inside. Location was good but I would have liked to have been a bit closer to a metro and I would have liked to have had more dining/bar options near us. It was about a 10-15 minute walk to the metro so not bad, just not great.

Nice hotel, and good value. Construction going on nextdoor, was noisy in room - check if the construction is done.

Not what we paid for, plus a backache!

We made a reservation for a room with a parlor, which would have a bed for our teenage son. Alas, the hotel could not provide that, and instead provided a pile of blankets for our son to use as a mattress!!!! This being DC, and late for us, we saw no alternative and stayed. The next day, we got a room with 2 beds, but still not the parlor we had paid for. They provided no refund for the inferior accommodations provided, which seems to me to be unfair. While the hotel is beautiful, I found myself missing the amenities and professionalism of a chain! :-(
