In 1864, businessmen David Morrison and Reuben Clark each owned an elegant new townhouse in a posh Massachusetts Avenue neighborhood. A later owner of Clark’s property added a Chinese Chippendale porch and Shanghai roof following a trip to the Orient. The twin townhouses eventually merged to form a mansion and became the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmens Club. When it opened in 1923, the club offered lodging for up to 120 servicemen at a fee of seventy-five cents per night. Each First Lady from Grace Coolidge to Nancy Reagan served as the club’s honorary chairperson. After the club closed, it was restored as a Victorian inn, retaining a number of original features including marble floors and fireplaces, wrought iron ceiling medallions, 12-foot mahogany pier mirrors and a collection of 19th century art. This Victorian mansion in the heart of Washington, D.C. is the only inn in the nation’s capital to be listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Initially built as two separate townhomes, this boutique hotel offers modern comforts in a historic setting. Each of the 54 guest rooms is decorated with period furnishings and some have Italian marble fireplaces.
