I am an admirer of architecture and staying at the Morris House Hotel was a delightful treat. I spent some time admiring the original fireplaces. There is no typical lobby instead there were two sitting rooms just beyond the entrance. One of the rooms had a cloth covered table with china cups and saucers for coffee and tea. After braving the arctic winds walking from the train station, it was lovely to have a hot cup of coffee and a homemade cookie.
I had a suite on the third floor and the feel of the room is more like a charming guest room in someone's home than a hotel room. The bathroom was perfect. Plenty of toiletries, towels and a huge shower stall.
The bed was super comfortable with lots of pillows.
I would suggest asking for a room on the lower floors if you have an issue with walking up stairs. There isn't an elevator and I am glad for it.
I didn't sample the breakfast so can't review the quality of the food. However, next time I'm in town I will stay at the Morris House and enjoy the breakfast.
If you love history, architecture and unique boutique hotels, you must stay at the Morris House Hotel. It's close to many attractions and restaurants and, for such a lovely hotel, the price is right.
