My boyfriend and I stay in Philadelphia for his birthday every year. We usually opt not to stay in the center of the city because of the price. This year for his birthday I decided to try something new and splurge a little for him. The rating is only to reflect the mysterious cluster of bites on my boyfriends elbow,... More

I stayed here for one night with my boyfriend. We usually stay at Kimptons, but we found a much lower price for the Latham and decided to give it a try. The hotel is in a nice location, valet parking was convenient, and the bed was comfy. This was a nice hotel, but nothing spectacular. Good price for what you... More

This hotel was reserved for me by the staff at Loews Hotel Philly because they were over booked. The staff and parking at the Latham were very friendly and accommodating. This is a boutique hotel and it shows in a positive stay. Latham front desk staff upgraded our room to a suite because their double bed rooms were completely booked.... More

A very nice small hotel in the heart of Ritenhouse Square. An historic building with contemporary interior decor. My room was very nice with contemporary furnishings, well appointed bed linens and bath products, a Keurig coffee maker and pods, free wifi, and complimentary bottled water. Parking is a bit expensive, but true for all hotels in the area. Highlight is... More

I had the pleasure to stay here 8 nights and was pleased with my room (Had a corner one on the 5th floor). The cleanliness was good and the service from the staff was superb. I would rate it a 5 if it werent for the stains on my sheets first night and the half plywood door in the entrance.... More

My boyfriend and I were booking a last minute trip to Philadelphia for the weekend and were looking for a place to stay via Kayak. We found the Latham Hotel and booked via Hotels.com and staying at the Latham Hotel was an absolute dream! The location in Center City was perfect, the view from our hotel room overlooking the city... More

I booked this on a Friday night stay in June on a sale price. Even without the sale price I would have booked - the price for a Friday night near Center City was so very reasonable. We pulled up and we were immediately met by the concierge to arrange the valet parking. Check-in was very quick with clear instructions... More

The Latham was a very nice hotel for what we paid. We had booked two rooms for a one night out on the town party. We had a two bed suite and a regular two bed room. I requested a higher floor with the rooms near each other. My requests were granted and we had two nice rooms on the... More

6 of my girlfriends and I booked two rooms for a girls weekend in Philadelphia. I would absolutely stay here again. Rooms were clean, bright, and comfortable. This place has been recently renovated and it showed. The location is excellent - block and a half from Rittenhouse, in the heart of many many things to do, places to eat, etc.... More

We had some great service from the doorman, one of the drivers, and the bar staff. But the woman at the front desk was intimidatingly brusque, and another driver hung up on us mid-conversation while we were stranded in a strange city (thank God for Uber!). Management did not even attempt to address the unhelpfulness, on multiple occasions when we... More
