A Very Attractive Boutique Hotel

Reviewed 6 october, 2021

I wasn't sure what to expect since this was a special deal my friend booked through Expedia. The photos on line simply do not do this lovely hotel justice. Looks and charm go a long way. The lobby, restaurant and rooms are visually striking. There is a Chinese theme throughout. We later learned that at one point, the building was a Chinese church. It is evident that much thought and planning went into the décor. As far as charm, each and every employee from the front desk personnel to housekeeping, wait staff and even the door man who urged us to borrow umbrellas was friendly, helpful and accommodating. The location was ideal for us since we are walkers. Many of the museums are roughly a mile to 1.5 miles away. Our lovely room was small but spotless and comfortable. That said, there were some disappointments. A coffee maker and microwave were absent. There was a small fridge and safe in the Chinese themed armoire but this these took up some of the necessary space we needed for clothing. Breakfast was not included. We did enjoy eating a traditional breakfast in the hotel's formal restaurant but if we had use of a coffee maker and microwave, that additional expense would not have been necessary. According tp a menu posted at the bar, we might have had a selection of perhaps 10 or so items for dinner. The reality was different. The bartender informed us that they had not received a delivery. Salads plus a few other listed items were not available. We wound up having one of the few meals actually available - pizza, It was good but not my first choice. The biggest surprise came late afternoon the following day after our arrival. We returned, rushing and eager to prepare for our evening out, only to find wet used towels and an unmade bed. The front desk forgot to tell us that unless we request housekeeping, we would not receive it. Fortunately, the housekeeper quickly brought us fresh towels and was quite gracious despite my obvious annoyance. Yet, these disappointments are all minor. We would love to stay at the charming Morrison- Clark again. As stated above, looks and charm go a long way.

We tried this hotel for the first time since my son moved up to Massachusetts Ave. I decided on this place because of the reviews stating it was quiet. It was! The bed was comfortable . We enjoy walking, therefore easy walking distance to the Mall - about 8 blocks. We will stay again.

Such a great peaceful historic place close to everything

Took my wife to what amounted to the pandemic version of the Cherry Blossom Festival. We originally booked an Airbnb by Logan circle. The area was beautiful, reminded me of an upscale street in Brooklyn, where I grew up. Unfortunately, the apartment had too many little issues to be comfortable. We ended up just leaving and staying at this hotel. We were so happy with the comfort of our stay. Have we had better, yes, but for the price and peace of mind, we definitely had a great time and I will be staying here again. You can feel the history, and I look forward to experiencing what the place can do without all the restrictions.

Great Stay!

We will definitely stay here again! Great location! Everyone was kind and helpful, room was clean, shower was hot! It has a nice, quiet courtyard with a water feature. Nice place to relax. The parking garage is a little tricky to park in, but they are there to help you.

Urban oasis

Reviewed 7 june, 2021

Our two nights at the Morrison-Clark Hotel were the perfect urban getaway! The property is exquisite, very well-maintained and nicely appointed, with some gorgeous public areas, including an enclosed courtyard space and a lovely lobby. Staff were welcoming and extremely helpful, and went above and beyond to ensure our comfort throughout our stay. Our ‘parlor’ room was comfortable, spotless and extremely quiet. Location is perfect—a quick walk to museums, restaurants, and the Metro. Recommend highly, and hope to return soon.
