Morrison-Clark Historic Hotel
There’s not much to do in the part of the nation’s capital where this quaint inn is located, said Lauren Viera in the Chicago Tribune. But the hotel’s “homey, historic feel almost makes up for that.” This former mansion, last renovated in 1987, offers Civil War–era architecture and generously sized guest rooms that provide a “refreshing alternative” to the look-alike corporate hotels that have sprouted up to serve conventioneers, lobbyists, and visiting dignitaries. Its dining room serves such “Southern-inspired dishes” as crab cakes and fried green tomatoes. The period antique furniture in my room, however, “did not make up for the outdated bathroom and appliances.”
