We stayed in room 302. The historic house is beautiful and charming. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean and the bed comfortable. My wife and I came for the weekend and had a nice relaxing visit. Would recommend this hotel to anyone coming for a night or a week.

Beautiful, old, quaint, charming, historic rooms, buildings, and courtyard Service was excellent. Decor was olds but to be excellent in that type of hotel. Coffee maker was not working properly. All amenities needed were supplied. Convenient to Wills Eye, Jefferson, medical offices, restaurants and shopping. Definitely would stay there again.

We went there on a week night because we were attending a whiskey tasting at the Phila Art museum. What a gem, I grew up in Delaware Co and never knew this place existed. Everyone was helpful, friendly and fun. We met the owner carrying flowers to the restaurant. He couldn't have been nicer. The rooms were immaculate, the restaurant...

The Morris House is a beautifully-restored and maintained Eighteenth-Century house, and adapted for use as a hotel with all the modern amenities. The public rooms are all faithful to the period, while the overnight rooms are an eclectic blend of old and new. All in all, it's charming, and the M restaurant that is a few feet away functions both...
