Being at the Morris is always a treat! We saw Straight No Chaser, but were a little disappointed. Their music and performance was not as put together as we had expected. It was still very enjoyable, but would have been better if we hadn’t had...More

Attended a family wedding here and it was fantastic. The serving staff and room were outstanding. The cocktail hour in the lobby was fantastic. Couldn't have asked for much better.
