Mount Morris House is one of the few hotels where the real-life appearance of the rooms surpasses the website photos. My room, "Sage", was huge, charmingly decorated, and very comfortable. The bathroom has a huge bathtub and a separate large shower unit. The front lounge is breathtaking, with vintage lamps and shelves full of books.
Location is very convenient--lots of good restaurants nearby, walk to Central Park, just a few stops on the subway from all the attractions. And Harlem itself is amazing.
But what made my stay the most memorable was the kindness of Vasili, the owner, who found a room for me when I arrived 1 day earlier than my reservation--I had forgotten that I was going back over the International Date Line. Not many hoteliers would have gone to such lengths to help a guest rectify her own mistake.
Don't have my photos on this computer, but will be adding some of my own. Can't say enough good things about Mount Morris House.
