Other than a slightly dirty bathroom upon my arrival and a non-functioning mini fridge (which they did fix), I had a great 48 hrs at this hotel. Love the location. Love the view. Love the quiet (request a high up floor for that). Love the service (when you ask for ice and a wine bottle opener, you barely have to... More

The Latham is a lovely hotel in the heart of Philadelphia. Our room was a bit small. But nicely appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable. The only downside to our stay was a bit of confusion concerning transportation to our family wedding. If you want to use the service, be sure to check the details ahead of time. We thought... More

Lovely older but gracious but well-kept hotel. We were greeted by a very friendly yet professional doorman with an amazing bellman who had tons to take to our suite - we were there for nearly a week. For that matter, all of the staff from check-in to the cleaning staff were very welcoming. Positive: We had a spacious king suite,... More

This hotel is great. The bed is comfortable, the room is spacious. There is a car/driver who will take you anywhere within a 3 mile radius for free and luckily, all major attractions in Philly is in a 3 mile radius. The rooms are quiet. The only problem is that the hotel allows dogs which is normally fine but there... More

Here is why this hotel is the best for me: location, employees, and car service. Location is so convenient to shopping, restaurants, landmarks, etc. You are right by Rittenhouse Square, which is one of the best areas in town. Brandon, Roman, and Parker are wonderful! Every time I come here they are here and seem to be there the entire... More

The Latham is in the trendiest part of Philadelphia.. Rittenhouse Square. It's a short walk to everything, so the convenience factor was the deciding factor. But that wasn't the only nice thing about the Latham.... it was the feel of modern elegance. The room was a fair size and well appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful... in fact, they... More
