Morris House Hotel

225 S. 8th St., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

This is a lovely bed-and-breakfast option in leafy Society Hill. It's within walking distance of historic Old City, the Pine Street shopping corridor, and Center City to the north, but it's away from other hotels and touristy spots, giving visitors an authentic neighborhood experience. The house itself is a historic treasure, built in 1787 in Colonial style, and maintains its original hardwood floors and a clock that is said to have bullet holes in it from the Revolutionary War. Ask the hotel staff for a fascinating little book detailing the building's history. Many rooms maintain a comfortable Colonial decor, but with 21st-century amenities like air-conditioning and TVs. An addition has several suites that are more modern looking. Afternoon tea and cookies are served daily at 3 pm.
