    The location and the charm of the old building. If you like very old houses, this house is perfect and in the condition you would expect. The room was perfect, clean and as large as any five start hotel room. The staff was friendly and very professional.

    We arrived late in the evening and saw the beautiful courtyard and decided to have a light dinner. There were several romantic couples having dinner also, so the setting was perfect. However, when we looked at the menu for the M restaurant, it made no sense. There was nothing on the full page that sounded normal. So I ordered a salad type platter, thinking it would work as an appetizer. The name was something like branches, twigs, and leaves. It arrived as A carrot shaving, A celery shaving, some sauce and some other small leaves. The whole dinner salad wouldn't fill a tea cup. Strange. We ate it, left and went somewhere else for something to eat.

    The Morris House Hotel is a lovely historical B & B. We had a mix up with our reservations and they were very gracious in changing our dates at the last minute. They were very helpful in helping us plan our visit. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. The location is perfect if you are there to visit historical sites.

    The only negative comments we would make was that the breakfast. There wasn't much to it, with a small variety.

    Very good

    The building.

    You can hear pretty much everything if you're in the wrong room. Breakfast is poor and always the same. Would be nice if they could switch it up every day.

    Superb

    I liked best the beauty and historical character of the building. I liked the wide plank wood floors, fireplace, wall colors, and period furnishings.

    noisy heater in 202, lack of shades in 302

    Exceptional

    I loved that the hotel was actually a house built in the late 1700's. It felt like we were staying at a friend's house. The staff was super friendly and walking into all the rooms of the hotel with real fires burning was a nice touch. If ever I come back to Philly, I know where I will be staying.

    The internet had some issues but was resolved quickly and one day the hot water was faulty but only for one morning. Nothing that was a deal-breaker though.

    Great location, beautiful hotel, lovely room. Tea & cookies in the afternoon is a nice touch.

    Rubbish TV. Breakfast should be better

    Beautiful old house with charming rooms. Despite the house was build in 18th century it is very well equiped, only elevator is missing. Perfect location: in the very center of the city, but away from traffic, so it is very quiet at nights.

    Charming hotel - an oasis in Philadelphia. Felt very British, and was luxurious, clean and quiet.

    Fabulous

    We only were able to one night but we really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in room 302, very spacious and comfortable. We loved the history and even did not mind the shake of the subway.

    Some wear and tear in our room. And parking was expensive.

    Location, staff, spaciousness of the suite, charm of a historic Philadelphia home, home baked cookies and overall ambience.

    Good

    The atmosphere, the staff, the patio.

    The noise and the shaking: the metro made our room shake every 10 minutes. The doors also have an inch of space at the top and you can hear people in the corridor as if they were in the room, and vice-versa. The neon bathroom light is really not adequate for the overall cozy atmosphere of the hotel.

    Fabulous

    This was a beautiful and relaxing hotel, gorgeous characteristics pertaining to its history. The bedrooms were comfy and the antique feel of the hotel was lovely and very fitting. A gorgeous garden and lovely hotel restaurant. Would recommend this to everyone.
