For a more intimate setting, there's the charming Rittenhouse Square, a small park in the heart of the city with beautiful fountains and plenty of greenery.
If you're willing to venture a bit further from the Morris House Hotel, there's also the picturesque Valley Green Inn in Wissahickon Valley Park. This historic inn offers a stunning natural backdrop with its wooded trails and flowing streams, making for a romantic and unique photo location.
