“Great, historic small hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Very charming, small hotel in a very good location. Room was warm, very clean and nicely furnished...overlooking the cobbled interior courtyard. Very quiet...no street noise. Really comfortable common area sitting room and breakfast rooms - with beautiful old fireplaces. Staff very nice, professional and helpful. Will definitely stay there next time we travel to Philly. Would highly recommend the Morris House. Exceptional value!

Everything is great: the room we were in for the 3 nights, the breakfasts whe took in the library of house with a big chimney fire. The hosts who were knowledgeable about the history of the house and make us feeling like being home. Plus of course the location. We walked everywhere: restaurant, shopping, museums etc. We were in Philadelphia and we were able to enjoy its architecture and Philly life (night and day).

We were in town for the marathon and stayed one night at the hotel. The room was very large and comfortable with a four poster bed, sofa and a side table with chairs as well as a sizable bathroom. Since some of the patrons were running the marathon or half-marathon and leaving the hotel before breakfast was served, the hotel set up a light breakfast early. The home baked bread was delicious. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. We got used the the room shaking every 30 minutes when the subway came by - it did not disturb our sleep - in a funny way it added to the experience. We would definitely stay at this charming historic hotel again!

I was in town for the marathon and couldn't find a hotel. While it was not my first choice, this Morris House turned out to be quite a find. Good location, fantastic cozy rooms, friendly and accommodating service...and a surprisingly good on site restaurant. Would definitely stay here again!

We absolutely loved our stay at this small hotel! The room was gorgeous, complete with fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and solid wood floors! The furniture complemented the room nicely. The homemade breakfast was scrumptious; I really felt like I was visiting rich relatives! The personnel were super nice and helpful as well. I couldn't recommend this hotel more! Love!

I absolutely loved my stay at the Morris House Hotel! It was beautiful. The staff were amazing; very welcoming and warm. The courtyard was a really nice touch. The rooms were awesome! They were exceptionally clean and cozy. It made you feel like home away from home but you still felt like you were on vacation. I loved the unique historic structure and amenities. I would definitely stay at Morris House again and would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Room Tip: Any room you stay in will be a pleasant experience.

When my mother came to visit me in Philadelphia she was amazed by Morris House Hotel. She said it was so pleasant to stay there and could not stop talking about how friendly and helpful everyone who worked there was! She loved her room and all the benefits that came with staying right in downtown Philadelphia, and said that it was an urban oasis, just like the website had promised. My mom lives in a very private area and was amazed by how peaceful she found sitting in the courtyard drinking coffee in the afternoon. Ever since my mom stayed at Morris House Hotel I have recommended it to everyone to stay there. It's quaint and historical just like the city of Philadelphia and perfect for anyone who wants to be in the city but still be able to have peace and quiet.
