The oldest part of this Inn dates back to 1864. Great old furnishings, and a pleasant, courtly staff. In the 1950's, it was named a Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmens Club, in which several First Ladies were active.
As of May, 2014 the Inn is in the midst of an addition which will disrupt life there until at least the fall. It is open, but their Zagat rated restaurant is closed
There are a few pieces of fitness equipment on the property, but guests can use the summer pool and exercise facility at a nearby property.Recommended for:

This haven of gentility is hidden behind ordinary brick walls, but the tall windows are like a portals to another time. This 19th-century Victorian mansion once house enlisted men. After renovations 25 years ago, it re-opened as a hotel. The rooms – which you open with a key on a ring – are big and bright. Standard rooms are great, but suites include plush couches, wicker chairs and a secretary desk. The Victorian rooms, the most expensive, are everyone's favorite with soaring ceilings, decorative fireplaces and balconies. You can get a cocktail in the lounge and enjoy original marble fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling mirrors, painstakingly restored to their original luster. The dining room, with its salmon-colored walls and ornate chandeliers, is the epitome of special occasions. A Christmas menu features foie gras mousse, cider glazed duck breast and chocolate roulade. This hotel is near a Metro stop and is a long but doable walk to the National Mall, but why would you even leave?Recommended for:

The Morrison-Clark Inn has a lot to offer. This "Historic Hotel of America" (as labeled by the National Historic Preservation Trust) is visually beautiful. Museum-quality features from the birdcage in the front lobby to furniture throughout the main floor give the whole hotel an almost colonial feel, and a mix of luxurious dining-rooms and a well-manicured patio offer nice touches.
Unfortunately, with the quaintness of the overall building comes a quaintness to some of the amenities. My room was small and oddly shaped, and the hallways between the lobby and the rooms can leave you a little claustrophobic.
Still, this is a unique experience with some nice touches. I particularly found the outdoor patio a great place for an afternoon snack, including views of downtown Washington, DC. Best of all...you can a key with your room. Not a card, but an actual key. How cool is that?
If quaint and historic is your thing, this one's worth a shot.Recommended for:

Morrison-Clark is a historic hotel centrally located near the convention center. The inn is considered a historic hotel of America. The rooms are tiny, but cozy and warm. Since the hotel is historic the furnishings are old world style as well. One of the best things is the free Wi-Fi. The hotel has a restaurant if you don’t want to eat out, a fitness room, and outdoor pool. The restaurant is going through a remodel, but will reopen on July 15.Recommended for:
