    We stayed two nights at the Morris House Hotel July 21st and 22nd this week. Upon arrival, we were given a great welcoming tour of the downstairs are and then our bags were taken upstairs (no elevators) to the third floor room. The accommodations were fabulous and very quiet in the evenings. No hallway foot traffic as in a regular... More

    For comparable prices to a boring hotel room, you can get a historical luxury mini-suite at the Morris House Hotel. Stayed for a week in June 2015 - it was a blast. Great restaurant and bar downstairs, wonderful friendly staff. B&B touches like cookies and wine and free wi-fi. I don't know why people stay at boring convention hotels when... More

    Great location, brilliant ambiance and decor, welcoming staff- overall a very good experience. It's just minutes away from the Independence Hall and within a walking distance of the Harbor Park. The restaurant has a good selection of food and drinks.

    This is a hotel/B&B that is so overlooked! I've lived in the Philly area for 30+ years and until 2 months ago I never knew this place even existed! The location is perfect, it’s right in the heart of Center City Philadelphia. When you enter the property it feels like you are entering another world; a much slower, grander, more... More

    The hotel is a picturesque and historic building, yet the room my family stayed in (501) was clean, comfortable and updated, with a roomy, modern bathroom, and kitchen suitable for preparing meals. The layout was quirky but quaint, with a long hallway running outside the main bedroom, linking the living / kitchen area to the bathroom (obviously accommodations were required... More

    The atmosphere and location of Morris House make it a great place for visitors to the historic area of Philadelphia. Morris House looks like many of the historic sites, and has a beautiful inner courtyard. The location is perfect, a few blocks behind Independence Hall within easy walking distance. There is a wonderful restaurant on site and a couple of... More

    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
