Our take on Morris House Hotel

With its inspiring blend of classic elegance and modern luxury, one can easily imagine John Adams and Thomas Jefferson debating one another fiercely in the Morris House Hotel’s breathtaking private garden or over afternoon tea in the dining room. Originally built in 1787 in Philly’s Society Hill district, a mere two blocks from Independence Hall, the historic Morris House recently underwent a renovation to turn it into one of Philadelphia’s finest boutique hotels, offering a mere 15 individually furnished rooms. With its old brick walls accented by creeping ivy and marble-accented fireplaces that can be found throughout the grounds, the entire hotel offers a warm, inviting atmosphere. In your room, you’ll find Egyptian cotton towels, terrycloth bathrobes, 600 thread count sheets, personal climate control for fighting the unpredictable east coast weather, as well as luxurious touches like Godiva chocolates and fresh flowers to welcome you. With accommodations this good, even Adams and Jefferson would have joined together in appreciation.
