    • 10.0.Exceptional

      Love the charm of the Morris House Hotel and the location is walkable to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. We were visiting Philadelphia for my husband's birthday and didn't want to stay in a typical highrise hotel. Built in 1787, our stay was like stepping back in time. The Morris House did not disappoint. Would definitely stay there again!

      Such a beautiful and historic property located near Old City and not far from other attractions such as the theater and shopping. You can feel/hear the subway some but really not enough to be annoying. A wonderful visit that I would recommend to anyone and would stay again for sure.

      Breakfast was a disappointing array. Front desk personnel were warm, helpful, and informative.

    • 8.0.Very Good

      I had a pleasant stay here! Definitely different from those big hotels around. This is one of those places that's vintage and quaint all at once. Though I loved the location and how it was near major stuff and walking distance I docked this place a star because there was no fridge for room 301and outlets were far from the bed for charging my phone. Room was clean and housekeeping did a great job to keep it clean. Just remember if you plan to stay here there is no elevator and doors have actual keys which makes this place even cool due to it being historic. Would definitely come back!

      Charming, old world comfort in the middle of the city. Lovely spacious, nicely appointed room, complete with sofa, armchair, writing desk. Also very friendly and easy access off quiet small side lane in a busy area.

      Charming, historical and right downtown.

      Excellent experience. Starting from the very interesting tour of the Morris House by Jerry. Both Jerry and Julio were very attentive and made our stay very pleasant. We were looking for a downtown stay ar short walking distance to all areas, with historical character and we found all of it at the Morris House. Our room was not what I would call “luxurious” but it was charming, well appointed and very comfortable. Surprisingly the windows were very well insulated from exterior city noise.

      Great location for visiting historic sites. An elegantly appointed historic home, however, our third floor room was tough on my husband’s legs.
