We spent one night in room #201, the most requested room, according to the site. It was a rather large and well appointed room but instead of offering a chocolate on the pillow, they may do well to give you an Ambien. The room was in the front of the house with all the street noise that would be expected in the city but also on top of the subway runs under the hotel and frequent rumblings can be felt as the subway goes by.
Pluses for the Morris House are it's people who are very nice and helpful, it's location and the beautiful old house with it's history and mostly it's garden area, rare in the city.
Minuses, aside from the noise, would be it's condition seems to be on the slide.
Please replace the sofa in the Parlor, as it is worn and dirty looking.
It's breakfast was minimal.
I would try it again in the nicer weather but will take care to request a room in the back.
