The Morrison-Clark Historic Inn and Restaurant located in the heart of Washington, DC, combines its rich history with fine dining and impeccable service standards to provide you with the unforgettable wedding of your dreams.

Opened in 1987 after a restoration project supervised by William Adair (who also supervised renovations of the White House), two Victorian townhomes built in 1864 were turned into an elegant, Victorian style Inn. The townhomes had been purchased in 1930 by the Women’s Army and Navy League and converted into the Soldiers, Sailors and Marine Club to house military men as they passed through the nation’s capital. Not only was the Club an inexpensive place for enlisted men to stay, it was a gathering place for high society women such as Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, Mrs. Admiral Dewey and Mrs. Calvin Coolidge to host silver teas and Sunday coffee. In 2013, the hotel began an expansion project to include the neighboring Parsonage and Chinese Community Church into its throngs, along with an 18th Century Carriage House, adding to the rich history found within our walls.

Make our history apart of yours with a Morrison-Clark Wedding.

  • Club Room - Located in the original Morrison townhome, the Club Room features two original Italian marble fireplaces, four original gilded mirrors, 12 foot tall windows and Victorian decor. The Club Room, aptly named after the SSMA Club, can accommodate up to 40 guests seated or up to 60 for a standing reception. With access to the front verandah and parlor room, the Club Room is the ideal space for intimate weddings. Larger groups may combine the Club Room with our Main Dining Room, located in the original Clark Townhome with the same original features, to accommodate up to 80 guests seated.
  • Courtyard - Set gently back in the center of the hotel, the Courtyard is an outdoor oasis from the bustling city traffic. Featuring an Italian inspired fountain, lush greenery and lounge furniture, the duel level courtyard is ideal for seated events up to 80 guests with a dance floor and has tenting options for weather concerns.  
    The Courtyard also makes a unique location for outdoor ceremonies for up 70 guests.

Set gently back from Capitol Hill, shaded by flowering trees and shrubs, Morrison-Clark Historic Inn and Restaurant  is an elegant, timeless option among Washington DC wedding sites.
