    Morris House Hotel Reviews

    Individual guest reviews

    • Single

      The staff at this hotel were incredibly friendly and helpful. I had worried that staying at such a small establishment would be uncomfortable, but as a solo traveller it felt very welcoming and staff were pleasant without being obtrusive. I had special cause to appreciate them as I lost my wallet in the city one evening (later returned) and they helped me contact the police. The historic building was beautiful and the room incredibly spacious, with its own sitting room. The water in the room and chocolates was a nice touch too. I would highly recommend it.

      The breakfast could have been more varied/ exciting. The pillows (as at so many hotels) had no 'bounce' and did nothing for my aching neck. A coffee maker in the room would be a nice addition.

      Felt like an oasis in the city - very pleasant change from a large, center city hotel. Glad we found the place,

      I am a history buff and loved staying in an 1800's hotel.

    • Older travelers

      It is like being a guest in a comfortable private house - only 15 rooms. The ambience is quiet and elegant, with traditional furnishings and pictures, and a complete library available for guests. The location is great, just a short walk from the historic district and close to the main east-west bus routes. Other attractions include afternoon tea and cookies.

      Would have appreciated more variety on the breakfast buffet, E.G. a choice of cereals and fruit/fruit juice. Our bedroom was perhaps a little on the small side but very nicely furnished. The courtyard was disappointing as we expected more of a garden, and some of the paintwork at the rear is badly in need of attention.

      It's very nice historical building in the very heart of the city. But small rooms are causing some trouble if you stay more than two nights...

    • Family with children

      We liked the age of the hotel, the intimate feel of the room and the common areas, and the friendly staff.

      The locaiton was great and the room was spacious.

      This is not a complaint but I was expecting more of a full breakfast.

      The Morris House Hotel is a small inn in the middle of Philadelphia! An antique-filled, charming inn with an excellant restaurant (which the Morris gives a 10% discount with)-definitely worth a visit! You feel like you're in another era and then step out into modern Philly. Great staff, continental breakfast in a large dining room included. I would absolutely stay in the Morris House Hotel on my next visit to Philadelphia!

    • Older travelers

      The office staff I met, Shannon and Lenkaa, were welcoming, helpful, positive attitude, and a warm professional demeanor.

      Parking. It's available across the street at an adequate garage. I can't think of a practical way to improve it, but perhaps there could be a way to drive up via the side street and drop off/pickup passengers and luggage.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      We enjoyed the historic aspects of the Morris House Hotel. It is ideally located near the historic district also. The staff was most helpful in helping us locate nice restaurants and directing us as we searched sights in the area. The room was lovely and comfortable. We enjoyed a nice breakfast and were delighted that we were able to walk to all the sights in the historic district from this location. Everyone was most accommodating and we would certainly stay again!

    • Couple

      The location of the hotel is perfect for all the main attractions and restaurants, bars etc too as its very central. It has lots of character and is very comfortable. The continental breakfast is good but the best part is the free afternoon tea that's available every day including fresh cookies! If the weather's good, there is a pretty little courtyard to sit and enjoy your tea in. Would definitely recommend staying here. We'll be back.

      Great hotel & great stay for the price. Concierge was superb, host was wonderful and very accomodating to our family. Carriage house was great room for a family of 5.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      We liked the helpfulness of all staff - first rate thank you! We also liked staying in an historic building which has been carefully restored. Finally, we liked the location - close to all historic city areas.

      We felt that the breakfasts were not up to the standard of the rest of the hotel. Sure, we were supplied with continental breakfast as advertised, but sometimes, towards the end of advertised breakfast times, supplies had become rather sparse - E.G. no cheese left, no yoghurt either (prior to 10.00am). Also for a continental breakfast, choice was poor and limited. The breakfast "component" was not value-for-money.
