The Morris House Hotel has been designated by the U.S. Secretary of Interior as a National Historic Landmark. The hotel has a long history and maintains its architectural integrity.
The Reynolds Family built it in 1787 during the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention. The signers included two important members of the Morris family who became the house’s new owners. For almost 150 years, several generations of the Morris family have lived in the house.
The current owners bought the property in 2000 and immediately started converting the house and two adjacent buildings into a first-class hotel. They worked hard to retain the historic elements of the structure while also bringing its facilities up to 21st century standards. Book Morris House Hotel
