Very impressed with the Latham. Probably one of the most comfortable beds, great quality towels, well decorated throughout, perfect location and very well trained staff from the doorman to reception to restaurant. I had checked out only to find my meeting cancelled. I returned to the Latham asking if I could return. The staff were extremely helpful and let me... More

I have just spent 6 nights at the Latham and fully enjoyed the experience. Its proximity to Rittenhouse Square and the general "chic" area was ideal. The front desk staff, esp Alison, were very helpful. The complimentary car service was so convenient and friendly. Enoca restaurant provided great choices and friendly service at all times. I will go back again.... More

The Latham Hotel is a historic hotel that has recently had a remodel. The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. It is in a great location near to Rittenhouse Square and very convenient to restaurants, bars and the historic sites in downtown.

I recently stayed at the Latham Hotel in downtown Philadephia. This was one of the best stays I have experienced. The hotel itself is in a great spot, and is clean and presentable. The part of this trip that made this exceptional was when I left an item of high value behind at check out. On my way back to... More

Great Location in the midst of varied shopping area, Super Service, Large Spacious Modern Room, Free (short range) Shuttle Service and most of all Free Wifi. Staying at the Latham hotel just cemented my like of staying at boutique hotels during my travels. The service level tends to be a lot more personable in these smaller facilities. As soon as... More

Stayed w/my husband for a romantic night away. VERY small room, thin walls. A bachelorette party across the hall woke us up multiple times that night. Looked nice, but upon closer glance things seemed cheap like the bathroom vanity that had exposed piping. No extra hospitality from the staff and we waited awhile to get our car from the valet...

A block away from Rittenhouse Square! Small lobby (this is good) and offers complimentary car service to museums, 30th street station, etc. Rooms were clean and updated. My only complaint is the free WiFi was not working. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Good brunch. I would definitely stay here again.

Most importantly, the gentleman, Roman, who drove us a couple of times (the Latham has a car that is available for free to its guests) was absolutely fantastic. Roman drove us on two occasions - once to the Art Museum and once to the Barnes. His knowledge of Philadelphia was astounding, his service was impeccable and personable and his help... More

A compact hotel but in a very central location. Staff were very friendly and the valet parking straightforward although expensive. The room was very comfortable and had an upscale boutique feel. The restaurant was fine for breakfast, although service can be a little slow first thing in the morning if you are on business as they have limited staff on... More
