Lovely complimentary breakfast, a tea time from 3pm until 8pm with delicious cookies. Cara, who welcome us, was perfect. She gave us all best indications and made our check in smooth and easy. We...

I was thrilled to find The Morris House as I visit Philadelphia on business from time to time. From the start, the staff was very accommodating and the room was very clean. Rich in history and excellent restaurant on site. Definitely will be returning.

Chose this because of the very high rating, the historic nature and the location convenient to the historic district. It succeeded on the third of these criteria but not the first two. Got one of their largest rooms, 502, and yes, it was large but not quaint, or cute, or historic, or romantic but simply a large and plain room....

We had a wonderful stay at this historic property minutes from Independence Hall. The room, courtyard, restaurant/bar, and common areas were lovely and quaint. Hotel Manager Lenka was so pleasant with check-in, recommendations, directions and much more. She is a gem! Bartender Aaron directed us to Jim's on South Street for a great cheese steak. I would note that the...

The room was of adequate size. We actually had a kitchen in ours. My beef is with the p--s poor wifi. Its 2016, they have had YEARS to build an adequate wifi system, but no such luck. If you need wifi Internet access that you can count on forget this place. Nicely located walking distance to Independence Hall, etc. You...

The Morris House Hotel is a lovely historic hotel. Our room was spacious, clean,beautifully decorated and comfortable. The bath had a bath tub and a separate stall shower. My only complaint is that the mirror in the bath was a tad too high for me. The staff was polite, helpful and went the step further to ensure our comfort and...

Our 3rd floor small suite was comfortable, well appointed, very clean and quiet. Service was understated and excellent from check in through check out. The recommendation to dine at the hotel's M Restaurant was appreciated. We dined inside the restaurant although outside seating in season is available. Service, menu selections and food were very good. Highly recommend this hotel and...
