Lovely property in an excellent location. We would definitely stay there again. Only downside; the room (mostly the bathroom) was a little small for two people.

It´s a pity as the hotel is so cute and confortable, but the tube passes just below through the house´s foundation and you can hear the whistle as the train enters the station and the house trembles each time as if you were in the middle of an earthquake.

My daughter and I met at the Morris House for a weekend in July and felt safe, and pampered. Our rooms were very comfortable and clean and it was a treat to walk through the park to the historic areas of Philadelphia -- a 5-10 minute walk. We took advantage of the public computer (this should be on your web site, it is important to many of us who do not have laptops!) to secure tickets to the art museum and Independence Hall. Our special thanks to the kind gentleman at the desk who directed us to a fine restaurant on Chestnut Sunday evening. We would definitely return.

We spent in this hotel only one night and it was great. It is situated right in the historical center of Philadelphia in old historical building, which saved the spirit of epoch. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. The employees were very friendly and qualified. Public areas of this hotel are great: comfortable, beautiful and homelike. If same day I come back to Philadelphia I will stay in this hotel. I think it’s the best choice.

I thought the staff - especially Brandon - were excellent. Lovely room, a pity you could hear the people clomping up and down the stairs
