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?

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.
