I stayed here with my husband last week. We were looking for a place not to far from Jefferson University. Location was perfect and were able to park our car and walk where we needed to go. Our room was very well equipped and comfortable. They have a nice courtyard and bar outside. Unfortunately upon our return to the hotel... More

What a pleasant place to stay, and really feel like you are in Philadelphia. We checked in, arriving late, but were greeted warmly and felt truly welcomed. The room was great - top of the stairs, quiet, very cozy, a view over the private courtyard strung with little lights. The best was breakfast the next morning in the best room... More

Due to a last minute flight cancellation, we ended up to sleep in philly and rented a suite at this hotel given its very convenient location and affordable price for a downtown hotel. We had no other expectation than not to sleep at an airport hotel nor spend a fortune for an overnight stay in an unknown city. What a... More

We had to make an unexpected trip to Philly and wanted a place right near Will's eye Hospital. Morris House was the prefect solution! It was a three minute walk to the front door of Will's from Morris House. When we arrived at Morris House, bleary eyed from travel, they sat us down for tea and cookies in a beautiful... More

We stayed here one night and had a chance to see some sights all in easy walking distance from the hotel. The bar attached to the hotel had live jazz music and a happy hour that drew very friendly locals. We felt most welcome. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was the only real disappointment... A minimal selection... More

My husband booked this hotel based on the positive Trip Advisor reviews. The suite room was exceptionally clean, luxurious bedding, very comfortable pillows, and with high end sundries. The décor in the downstairs rooms and of the suite bedroom/bath were traditional based on this historic homes circa date. Breakfast was served in the library with fine china and a roaring... More

We had only one day in Philly, so this hotel is an excellent location to allow for optimal site-seeing without time wasted on getting to and from the historical highlights. Additionally, the staff was so professional, so warm and helpful it was a pleasure to be there. They also have a wonderful complimentary breakfast. The only reason I did not... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for my birthday. We really loved it. We're often sceptical about more traditional hotels like this one, but this hotel is truly great. It has charm, character, comfort and cleanliness. Often hard to get all four in one hotel. Our room was very spacious, quiet and spotlessly clean. The bed was wonderful,... More
