This is a newly renovated hotel in a historical building. The room was nice but wifi is very weak to non existence. We had to be at our door to get wifi connection. Staff was efficient but very cold. The hotel lacks the warmth and coziness of a boutique hotel. Valet can take up to 10 minutes to bring the... More

Brandon Draugher's suggestion for my trip really enhanced my experience of the city. If he hadn't suggested I walk to the Schuylkill River, I wouldn't have ventured out for my exercise. I would have missed experiencing Center City, the magnificent flower pots on Delancey Street, the Schuylkill River and its elevated walks and the resurgence happening in the City.

The Latham is centrally located near shopping, restaurants and attractions. The hotel is updated and clean. Upon checking in the front desk could not find our reservation in the system but this was quickly resolved. The staff was very accommodating. Valet is $39 as expected but was efficient. We would stay here again.

I was very pleased with my stay at the Latham Hotel on July 12 -14th. It is in a very convenient area of Philadelphia. Getting to the historic sites, shopping and great restaurants were easy. The front desk staff was very kind and answered every question I had with a smile. They picked out two dining spots for dinner and... More

We booked a double room at Latham Hotel and it was an excellent choice for a hotel in the middle of the city. It's in a great location with lots of activity (shopping, restaurants, bookshops, and even a nice park). The room was spacious, newly renovated, all furniture was in excellent condition, modern yet traditional decor. The bathroom is fantastic.... More

Location is what's really great about this hotel and great costumer service. The only complaint I have is that the wifi is very weak here. I had a corner room on one of the middle floors which this could be why but i can barely get a wifi signal in my room. Luckily it was complimentary but it takes too... More

Spent 1 night here. Choose this hotel based on TA reviews, price, and location. It is an older hotel, but rooms were not cramped. In fact, our room was fairly spacious and had a comfy King bed. Looked like everything had been updated recently. Staff was friendly and helpful. Since it faces a side street (17th) the outside noise was... More

I loved the location, friendly staff, and comfort of this hotel. The kicker was the Audi car ride that would take you to locations around the block complementary of the hotel! The only thing that keeps this place from getting a 5 is that my furniture looked a little dusty and the hair trimmings of the previous person that was... More

My husband and I stayed at the Latham for the weekend. This was my second stay at this hotel and it was as enjoyable as the first. The rooms are well kept and the customer service was on-point. To give an example, my husband went to the bar to request some Sprite soda and tonic. The bartender went above and... More
