Your Downtown Philadelphia Hotel: History and luxury combined:

 Built in 1787, the Morris House is a National Historic Landmark that has been renovated into one of Philadelphia’s finest luxury boutique hotels. Ideally located a few short blocks from Philadelphia’s most photographed treasures, the Morris House is tucked away by Washington Square Park in a welcoming neighborhood steeped in long standing Colonial tradition. Escape from Philadelphia's busy streets and sit in the luxurious courtyard garden- a true urban oasis. Relax away from the winter cold with tea and cookies by a warm fire in our Revolutionary-era lounge. Spend a summer night under the stars enjoying the south of France feel of our formal garden with a five-course meal or plate of artisan cheese and wine at our on-site M Restaurant. 

To stay here is to expect more.

The Morris House Hotel is a wonderful slice of history within the beautiful city of Philadelphia, perfect for a weekend getaway and a step back through time. The service is outstanding, the staff are equal parts historian and hospitality provider. The rooms are larger than what you would think for a home built in the 18th century, the accommodations made very modern but without taking away from the charm of this boutique hotel. My wife and I stayed for a weekend and we had a fantastic time. Eating at the M Restaurant in the courtyard was a wonderful experience, and having a very nice continental breakfast sitting aside a warm and inviting fire in the study was the perfect cap to the great weekend. Highest recommendation!

Absolutely perfect. So much charm and character. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very clean and the beds were comfortable. European style breakfast and tea and cookies in the afternoon were delicious. We had dinner in the hotel courtyard at M, outstanding. Highly recommend staying at the Morris House.

The room was fabulous, the staff was lovely to speak with... UNTIL: We had no hot water for showers. Twice. We complained, they kept apologizing. They did nothing about it. Was disgusted when they made the excuse "oh, well, our restaurant must be using all of the hot water at this time". Bogus. Will never stay here again. Would NOT recommend this place to anyone!

Perfectly quaint with a Victorian theme. Beautiful and very clean rooms. Everyone who worked there was very helpful and nice.

I have stayed at the Morris House on four different occasions. This boutique hotel is a gem! We first discoverd it when a family member was just 2 short blocks away at Pennsylvania Hospital. We've stayed in rooms 201, 203, 401 and the presidential suite. We loved all of the rooms except the presidential suite. Although it was large, you need to walk up what feels like a rickety spiral staircase to get to the sleeping area. The upstairs in the presidentail suite has a half wall that would be very easy for small children to fall down (two stories down!). The other suites were lovely; each plush, beautifully decorated, really private, and quiet and above all, exceptionally clean. The staff is excellent; resourceful and friendly. The European-style breakfast (free) consisted of fruit, cereal, banana bread, cheese and meats. The garden areas are gorgeous. In fact, while staying here, you do not even feel like you are in the city. Do be aware that you will feel the vibration of the subway below in the higher rooms. The location is superb, near so many locations, but the convenience of being so close to the hospital (not to mention a short walk to Starbucks) is what makes it exceptional. We would go back time and time again! Highly recommended for singles and couples alike, but I honestly would not bring my small children here.

Philadelphia has some really great historic buildings, one of them is the National Constitution Center; very interesting to read about how this building came to be.

Did you know, the Pennsylvania Convention Center used to hold events when it was the Philadelphia Civic Center. The Beatles and the Jackson 5 played there too!

At Morris House we host so many fun weddings. So, we looked at some American and Italian wedding traditions and how we all celebrate such a wonderful occasion.
