To be fair, we stayed in property that adjoined the hotel via the central courtyard. Perhaps not the actual Morris hotel building, but certainly nothing that affected our stay. Paid just over 250$ on expedia. A couple of flights of stairs but worth the hike with luggage. The room felt like an apartment I could never afford. Full-kitchen. 10 foot... More

I am an admirer of architecture and staying at the Morris House Hotel was a delightful treat. I spent some time admiring the original fireplaces. There is no typical lobby instead there were two sitting rooms just beyond the entrance. One of the rooms had a cloth covered table with china cups and saucers for coffee and tea. After braving...

Looking to stay in the historical district, yet not in a big chain hotel, we found Morris House. What a find it was. Our room was large, yet comfy. We were able to walk to the historical area and fine restaurants within minutes. The only part that needs some adjustment was the continental breakfast. As high quality as the hotel... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Morris House Hotel and really enjoyed it. We liked it so much that we are going back next month. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and charming. The staff were friendly and helpful. The colonial style and the historic setting helped make our stay a memorable one. The late afternoon cookies and tea... More

If you want to enjoy the culture, arts, and excitement of the city of brotherly love but do not want to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle of it all, then Morris House is the place! Staying here is like staying a world away from the speed of the city but you just have to walk out... More

We just returned from an overnight stay celebrating our anniversary at the Morris House! The location is perfect to explore the Old Town/Historic area, Washington Square and Mid Town - all a 10-30 minute walk. The area seemed quite safe even walking home late after dinner. The history of the house is interesting and the staff was incredibly welcoming, professional... More

The location is the best if you want to be in the old heart of Philly. The house is charming, well kept, and beautiful. Lowell is a great host, very helpful and accommodating. We loved the place so much that we went back for a second night. Our first night was in the old house. Our second night was in... More

The Morris House is intimate and comfortable. You know you are in Philadelphia; many of the books are by and about Philadelphia. The staff is helpful and the rooms are each unique and comfortable. The restaurant next door is superb, with an attentive staff responsible to special needs. A gem.

This is a beautiful little hotel: great location, historic building, wonderful staff. The restaurant and bar are great, and our bartender/waiter/front desk clerk, Lowell, was friendly, extremely helpful, and made both our dinner and, later, our hotel stay special! What a find! We can't wait to come back this summer for a romantic weekend getaway!

On a 2 weeks tour of the east coast we were passing through Philadelphia and were looking for somewhere to stay. From the moment of walking through the front doors we were transported back in time to another world. The hotel and the staff were amazing, it was less like staying in a hotel and more like staying with family.... More
