The Morrison-Clark Inn
In 2013 ForrestPerkins began work on the existing Inn with the renovation and expansion of this Victorian Mansion built in 1864.
A new six story, 43,000 square foot addition with 57 new guest rooms rises above the next-door former Chinese Community Church, blending Victorian and Asian architecture. Drawing on this, the Interior Design of the hotel was reimagined to suggest the influence of a world traveler who favored journeys to the Far East, layered with treasures from their travels.
The sculpted façade of the Church was retained and serves as the hotel’s new main entrance, leading to a two story Lobby and Bar. The oldest structure on the campus, the two story Carriage House’s existing painted brick facade was maintained after undergoing a restoration, with its interior converted into a single two level guestroom suite.
The unique fabric of the property, combined with the eclectic yet sophisticated style of the Interiors leads to a truly individual hotel experience walking distance to Capitol Hill and The White House.
