Morrison Clark Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The review would have been 5 overall except for the :last interaction I had with the front desk. I had a 6:15 am flight out of Reagan so I needed to leave the hotel about 4:15 to comfortably get to the airport. I asked the desk the night before to arrange a cab at 4:15. I came down from the room at 4:05, and asked about my cab. The bellman assured me that there would be no problem getting a cab at 4:15. At 4:15, no cab, at 4:25 no cab, at 4:30 no cab. I finally had to order an Uber which arrived at 4:45. A guest request for a cab at a particular time should be a no brainer for a hotel like the Morrison even at 4:15 particularly when I had requested the cab the night before. I made my flight, just barely, but the poor performance of the front desk staff at checkout really put a black mark on the hotel's review.

Wonderful, historic hotel. Great restaurant too. And perfect location for walking around DC.

The hotel decor was gorgeous! Room was very clean and a great size. Bar and snacks available in room was a plus! The location was very convenient to everything we wanted to do in DC. Restaurants, bars, sights: all within walking or a short Lyft ride away. Staff was super friendly and courteous! We will be back!

I liked everything about this hotel--location, decor, amenities, food, room, bath. It's historic, not a bland corporate skyscraper. Would definitely stay there again.

I like the location and comfort of the hotel! Love how clean and detailed everything is I'd definitely recommend but the parking is very annoying because they don't have a lot of parking opportunities on the street and if there's a free spot it is only free until 7am. Their valet is 38$ a day which I think is too expensive for how much we already paid to stay there. Overall great hotel!

Everybody like to help and explain what you want,fast and friendly. Only was bad the WI-FI, terrible

Went bcuz of frustration at work. Frasier was amazing host!

It was a very decent place to stay. I needed a clean and comfortable room and it worked great. Staff was friendly and very fast.

Loved it! I will certainly return. ......................................................

Checked in at 10:30a, room not ready, no problem...came back at 10:30p only 1 room left, with no desk or chair, asked for another, said there was another room (!), moved rooms, it was 80 degrees in the room with no air conditioning working, moved back to the room with no desk, smelled musty. They ran out of food 'for the evening' and had no bottles of cold water available. In the morning, no newspapers available, no turkey sausage. Ordered pork sausage...sent it back, inedible. Won't go there again.

I can't really comment on how nice the Morrison-Clark was or wasn't because on my arrival, they advised me that they were bumping me to another nearby property, the Washington Plaza. It seemed comparable, I guess, but had a different atmosphere that I would not have chosen on my own. I was very disappointed as I had reserved my room over a month ago and they did not offer me any kind of upgrade or other consideration for the inconvenience. I was tired from travelling so I did not make a big stink about it, but I was annoyed and felt disrespected. I would definitely not recommend them.

Loved my stay here. Small room but just right for just me and one night stay. Loved the courtyard. Tranquil place

The Hotel is at a very centric location of DC, very nice looking, clean, and the room was SO COMFORTABLE!

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.

Lovely breakfast and complimentary wine in evening. Great 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!

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!

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.

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.

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.
