3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed overnight to see a concert at Lincoln Financial (Veterans Stadium). Super easy walk to Septa train. 10 minute ride, 15 minute walk after. Our room was great - spacious, well decorated. Loved it. What I didn't love was the cramped, awkward front lobby which made the hotel seem 3 star. So little space to check in or sit down... More

The Latham is a very good choice when visiting center city Phildelphia.. It is located in the Rittenhouse Square area of the city. There are many good restaurants , shopping, and sights in walkable distance. The hotel has been modernized, there is a new bar restaurant on the street level of the hotel. Rooms are nicely decorated, although alittle smaller... More

We had two rooms at this hotel, booked via Hotels.com and to be paid at hotel (not in advance.) As I wanted to cover the room & tax on both rooms without any issues at check in, I contacted the hotel in advance to do so. I promptly received a form to complete and sent it back. While I asked...

Let me start by saying that the staff tried very hard to be helpful given the problem I'm about to describe. I had an awful travel day -- I was supposed to fly in to Philly and land at about 10:00 pm. But, my flight was cancelled and I was forced to take a flight from the middle of the... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the room. It was well appointed and very comfortable. It was relaxing. There was no noise from outside or next door occupants. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Latham use to be my favorite place to stay but it has really gone downhill. 3 of the 7 days our air conditioning was out in 90 degree weather, our tub drain was clogged for two days and our sheets didnt fit the bed so by the middle of the night you were sleeping on the mattress. I really like... More

When checking in, I was asked for the voucher that was provided by the third party---in this case Expedia. I did not have it but had a email confirmation (sans the voucher) with a confirmation number and name and address that completely matched my id and credit cards.
