A fascinating history makes these beautiful 1864 Victorian town houses an interesting as well as a comfortable and well located choice. Antiques-filled public areas have marble fireplaces, bay windows, and medallioned ceilings, and rooms have neoclassical, French country, or Victorian furniture alongside modern amenities. The former Morrison home, on the National Register of Historic Places, became noted in 1923 when the Women's Army and Navy League bought and converted
it into inexpensive lodgings for enlisted men while in town. First Lady Grace Coolidge attended the opening and other First Ladies and dignitaries have visited over the years. American cuisine with regional accents is served in the relaxed restaurant, with its outstanding wine list and patio.

I have been a guest at the Morrison-Clark Inn on several occasions.It is just lovely with it's elegant Victorian decor. I especially love the fall and winter when the fireplaces are roaring.The food is excellent and the service top notch. If it is elegant charm and a comfortable room to relax in after a fast paced DC day, then the Morrison-Clark is the place to stay.

Washington is constantly changing and so has the neighborhood of this wonderful victorian hotel. Stayed here while attending the new convention center and noticed the neighborhood going upscale. Fabulous service and a unique hotel. Wonderful restaurant with glittering crystal and candlelight.

We stayed here during the summer of 98. Upon arrival we were told not to venture toward a specific direction for our own safety. At 3AM I went to the desk to ask to be moved due to the fact that we could not sleep due to the prostitutes, drug dealers, car horns, radios, and yelling that was taking place outside our window. We were finally moved at 6AM to a room that was so tiny, we refused it. They then put us in a larger room that was decorated
in 60's decor. At least we could run the window unit a/c to help cover the noise. I rated the service low because had they moved us earlier, we might have had at least some sleep. As it went, with zero sleep, our first full day in DC was ruined. The lobby was lovely, and the food was great. Too bad this place was in a horrible location. It is also impossible to walk to any sights from here, and the subway is also not within walking distance. We took cabs.
