Lonely Planet review
In a landmark building near Washington Sq, Morris House conjures colonial elegance without too much formality or frilliness. Beyond the 15 rooms, its finest asset is the courtyard garden (with a locally loved dinner restaurant), a true respite from the city. In winter, cozy up by the fireplace.
