This hotel was fine for a 2 night stay and the staff members were very nice. Everything was clean except a decorative throw at the end of the bed which looked stained. I removed it and it stayed on the floor of my closet. The coffee shop is somewhat overpriced and there's a Peet's across the street which I recommend.

On a positive note, this hotel was very clean and in a great location. The room was very nice and well appointed. It was quiet and very comfortable. On the downside, it is a very awkward place to pull up to get valet parking and unload the car (big city issue), I also found the staff not overly friendly. They... More

From the beginning to the end of our trip it was an awesome experience, at a great hotel. It was a rainy Saturday and evening. Cabs were scarce. They went above and beyond to get us to our destination. They have a driver that will take you within 2 miles of the hotel, and if he isn't available, they find... More

This is a really nice hotel and unfortunately I had a bad experience booking our stay. I made the mistake of booking our room through Booking.com without first checking the hotel's website. So I take responsibility for my error. I then realized the hotel's rate was better than the rate on booking.com. It was too late to cancel without a... More

The best thing about the Latham was the service. It was impeccable and friendly. They also feature a very convenient free car service that provides rides to local restaurants, landmarks and the train station. The room was lovely. The downsides - the lobby was almost non-existent, the elevators are small and the hallways are a bit cramped.(none of these things... More

My family stayed for three nights during an extreme cold snap this month. All of the staff at the front desk and at the bell station were very helpful and friendly. The room was comfortable and the hot water worked. Great location.
