A really nice hotel. Staff very helpful, room was nice. Close to downtown and all the attractions. If I had to find a con with this hotel, it would be that the sofa couchs need replacing. As couchs they are find, but very unsupportive as fold out bed.

I stayed for five nights in one of the suites in the historic part of the hotel. The experience was a very good one and would definitely recommend the Morris House.
