The Morris House Hotel is a wonderful place to stay. It is a beautiful house, well appointed and maintained, with many excellent features.
The staff were generally friendly, though one or two staff members seemed less than enthusiastic and even failed to come up with a basic hello. One the whole though they were helpful.
The public rooms of the house, the breakfast room and a small lounge, were well appointed and very comfortable. Breakfast was quite basic, but the cookies in the afternoon were a nice touch and delicious. One could even take a small jar of seeds harvested from the plants in the lovely garden to take home.
The room we stayed in (201) was in the main house and was large and comfortable. The furnishings were lovely and while the bathroom had seen better days it was spotlessly clean and large.
The hotel is perfectly located and many of Philadelphia's principal attractions are a short walk away. That said, the hotel is on a quiet street and has a peaceful air.
A very nice hotel, would definitely recommend.
