The Morris House Hotel is an above average B&B. I was in Philadelphia for work, and needed to be close to Society Hill. It was ideal for that. I stayed in room 202, and it was very pleasant; a large room, with lots of books, and a good bed. The bathroom is a little small for such a large room; but nice L'Occitane lotions and shampoo. There is a bit of rumbling from the subway but I live in the inner city so that didn't bother me (indeed it seemed quiet). Breakfast was the usual bagels and cereal; and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. B&B's are not my thing, so I'm not likely to rave about this place; but it was very nice and in a great location. Their website gives a really good/homest indication of what the place is like.

We were part of three couples who took a weekend getaway in Philadelphia. The couple who paid the most for an "Extended Suite" ended up in a building next to the historic mansion rather than in it and to add insult to injury, the suite was not that big (extended refers to length of stay) and was decorated in retro 50's decor. Yuck! Do the owners really think that anyone wants to come to the historic district of Philadelphia and book themselves into a historic inn so that they can stay in a 50's room? The other two couples had very nice rooms in the main house although our room faced 8th Street and twice during the middle of the night, someone pounded on the external door and woke us up. Add a continental instead of full breakfast offered at such a pricey place and I'm afraid I can't endorse The Morris House to anyone.
