The Morris House Hotel is one of the most beautiful gems in a prime location in downtown Philadelphia.
The Morris House sits street front at 225 South 8th Street and is only steps away from all the historical tourist attractions.
The staff is extremely attentive and will see to your every need.
Be aware, there is no elevator, but the staff will carry your bags to the most gorgeous room to which you have been booked.
Walbert and Lowell were especially helpful during my stay at the hotel.
The rooms are amazing. Mine was not in the main house, but just a few steps across the beautiful bricked courtyard. I had a gorgeous bedroom and a sitting room that overlooked the city. The bathrooms are so spacious and beautifully done with tiled floors, tons of counterspace for your makeup bag, etc.
Everything was pristine clean and guess what!? You get homemade ginger cookies on your pillow everyday.
The breakfast is amazing. Everything made in the hotel kitchen which includes a beautiful Quiche, lovely cheeses, fresh fruit, homemade pastries, breads and homemade jellies, honey...and herbal teas.
There are so many lovely restaurants near the hotel...be sure to ask the concierge their suggestions for an unforgetable dinner.
The Wilkes Eye Institute is right across the street and the Pennsylvania Hospital is a couple blocks away and around the corner on Pine Street.
You will find upscale shopping just steps away from the hotel and don't miss out on dinner at Talula's Garden right behind the hotel.
I cannot recommend this gorgeous hotel enough!
