I wanted very much to love this hotel, but in the end, it was a bit disappointing. My wife and I stayed here for three nights while on vacation in the DC area. We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the National Mall and reasonable price. First, from our limited interactions with the staff, they seemed very friendly....

Stayed for one night and despite its relatively small size it was very nice - cozy and romantic. Modern amenities and the front lobby is very hip and cool. Room was in the renovated? historic side. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance.

Stayed here for three nights for a visit to Washington. Hotel is in a good location providing walking is not a problem or happy to use cabs etc. The hotel is very comfortable and has a very nice restaurant serving great food. The hotel is quite modern but nicely furnished. I would recommend.

My husband and I stayed at the Morrison Clark for our anniversary in October. We had a small issue when checking in as the door to our assigned room wouldn't open. It the staff immediately upgraded us to a Suite and handled the problem. Our stay was great, the restaurant was good and the location was great for us. We...

Though, the shower we had was a dissapointment. And we really had trouble streaming everything while we ere there. We had breakfast at the...

Tired of the intensity and size of the Marriott Marquis and the other cloned major hotels? 2 blocks from the convention center is a simple elegant hotel--2 former mansions converted into this historic inn, with a reasonably priced restaurant and lobby bar; historic restored façade, with modern nicely appointed rooms within, spacious indoor and outdoor sitting rooms; just beware of...

Our son, who lives just round the corner from this hotel, suggested we try it and have now had two very successful stays. This time we got what I think was a disabled room and it was spacious and comfortable with a big shower room - Room 507. Very central. Lots of character. Friendly staff. The breakfasts were pricey compared...

Lovely hotel with a kind and accommodating staff. The room was small, but well appointed and comfortable. The whole feel of the hotel is very elegant, from the uniformed doorman to the Asian influenced decor.

This is a beautiful hotel. I stayed in a very nice victorian style room, very large. People were so nice, thanks! The only reasons I dont give a five are: 1. They have no coffee maker in the bedroom and 2. The gym is way to small (one treadmill and one elliptical so I couldnt use it at all. Very...
