Nice business trip

Would recommend Thu, Dec 10, 2015
Very historic hotel! Awesome room! The only problem was that the hotel resided just on top of the metro line and it was trembling each time the subway passes by and that was frequent.

This is our third stay at Morris Hotel. Great stay and reasonably priced. The free breakfast and tea and cookies in the afternoon was a nice touch.

Adorable hotel!

Would recommend Tue, Nov 17, 2015
We loved this hotel. It's in a very old building (built in 1787 I think) and has lots of charm. The staff was very friendly, the building was great, and the breakfast was awesome. It's very conveniently located as well. It's a couple blocks away from all the historic sights, and it's also a few blocks away from the subway stop if you want to go down to see a sports game. Also, visit the M Restaurant while you're there. The food was great and the staff were so nice and fun to talk to! We'll definitely be staying here again the next time we're in Philadelphia!

Authentic historic home with a lot of charm. Staff was very friendly & knowledgeable about city. Breakfast was ok, but afternoon tea (or coffee) & cookies were a nice touch. Mini suite was comfortable.

Awesome hotel

Would recommend Sun, Aug 23, 2015
We chose the Morris House Hotel because of the location but fell in love with it because of its beauty and staff. Everyone was super nice. We arrived late and the gentleman at the desk was so kind and helped me up the stairs with my luggage. You are in walking distance to every thing you need. I would recommend this hotel

Wow, lovely quiet time

Would recommend Tue, Oct 7, 2014
I was searching for a place where I could recharge my life. A peaceful, quiet place surrounded by my love of history. To compliment my desire, of a few restful day's, the details of tea time and wine were lovely. My desire to merge myself in the history of our country returning to rest in the beautiful Morris Hotel was divine. Instead of leaving the history in the streets of Philadelphia I was able to continue living history in a nicely decor comfortable hotel room. Traveling to historical places in the US is one of my resent pleasures. This has been the first time I stayed in a historical building which enriched my journey through history.

Dining

The Morris Hotel has a wonderful restaurant. Plus there are a few cafe's a few blocks away from the hotel. Their food is was delicious, different and nicely priced.

No only a charming historic building but this hotel has all I need for a business stay: clean, comfortable rooms, reliable wireless internet, excellent quality continental breakfast, responsive and friendly staff, central location in town and close to regional rail/subway. Would be excellent for a pleasure visit too.

I really liked everything about the hotel except for the shower. Very small and water temp control was impossible. The location cannot be beat if you want to tour the historic museums and find great restaurants nearby.
