The Venue

Built in 1787, the Morris House Hotel is a National Historic Landmark where Colonial charm dovetails with the luxuries of today. The location, history, and unique character of The Morris House and M Restaurant offer the perfect place for life's milestones and cherished memories. Depending on the size of your wedding, the M Restaurant and Bar, Courtyard Garden, Library and Reynolds Room can all be part of your big day.*

Our 4,800 square foot courtyard garden is one-of-a-kind among Center City venues. Handcrafted Revolutionary-era brick pavers illustrate the fine craft and workmanship exemplary of the early American era. Enter the courtyard from South 8th Street through the wrought iron gates, and be transported to a timeless English garden or the South of France. A unique, urban escape awaits!

• M’s Main Dining Room - 38

The Hotel

The Morris House Hotel combines the low-key warmth of a Bed & Breakfast with the luxuries of a boutique hotel. Each of our 17 rooms are unique and feature a mix of styles. Some rooms honor the elegant Colonial esthetic for which the property earned its National Historic Landmark status, while others are contemporary with the decor and furnishings of today. Unparalleled service, attention to detail and the city's best location have elevated The Morris House into Philadelphia's top tier of hospitality. To stay here is to expect more.
