This is a great old hotel that has been completely restored. Beautiful rooms with a fireplace and lots of woodwork. Very private and quiet. Free coffee is available at a very nice coffee station just off the lobby. Free breakfast, a great bar and restaurant that provides a discount for guests, and a beautiful courtyard. Parking is conveniently located right... More

A thoroughly charming hotel with character that is often missing from newer properties. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The continental breakfast was excellent. The all day coffee was much appreciated with the home made cookies. The bar and restaurant were also excellent. Again the staff were friendly and made you feel at home.

What a wonderful and beautiful place to stay while visiting Philadelphia! We stayed for 2 nights and had a very comfortable suite. The hospitality from the staff was warm and welcoming from the minute we walked in until we checked out. Breakfast was truly continental, but sufficient for the first meal of the day with many options available. Tea and... More

My wife and I booked three nights during the week in December as the rates were good. The Morris house is conveniently located in central Philly near the historic district. A car is not necessary or recommended if you are satisfied to walk and take short cab rides. The local bus is an option too. The staff at Morris House... More

Loved staying here on my recent visit. Like staying at a friend's home...a friend with an older, very historic home. Perfect location to get everywhere on foot. Starbucks just on the corner and it opened at 5am! I walked to the historic sites the very first afternoon. Loved returning each day to the fire warming the den area and the... More

This small, historic property is such a gem. I have now stayed there twice for business and it is a fantastic place! The location, rooms, service and on-site restaurant are wonderful- clean, unique due to the historic nature of the building, friendly staff and a parking deck right across the street. And the icing on the cake- beautiful decorations for... More

Lovely wedding and great food and fun small bar area. If your looking for a historical, small hotel in Philly give it a... More

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Morris House. This quaint hotel is located in an 18th century home. We stayed in one of the luxury rooms in the old house. The room was spacious and well appointed. The hotel is located near Independence Park and many great restaurants. My only disappointment was breakfast. While I knew that the breakfast would... More
