I had the opportunity to stay at Morris House in Philadelphia the second time in a year recently. A year ago I was quite surprised to find such a charming and affordable hotel, with antiques in every roon, attentive staff, continental breakfast, afternoon teas, wine tasting, a quiet patio and library . . . and all within two blocks of Independence Hall and within easy walking distance of the convention center. This second time my wife accompanied me and while I spent most of my time at the convention, she was able to fully enjoy the comforts and features of Morris House. The staff was supurb, arranging for cabs, assistance with bags. On our last day, after checking out and while spending afternoon time at Reading Market before returning to claim our bags and go to the airport, we learned that our flight that evening was cancelled . . . We returned to the Morris House and were very happy to learn that they could make a room available to us for this unexpected extra night's stay, at the same rate as our regular stay. Absolutely recommend Morris House for any traveller to Philadelphia who wants comfort and charming surroundings.
