“Hotel & Movies :))”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

booked it in rush to get overnight sleep to be closer to Stratton Mnt for Sat night in Jan 2013. All was ok, no special treatment or anything outstanding. Clean, decent, nice stuff, average room size.. Now, the special part is that building includes a movie theater & great next door bar. All very convenient. Basically the location is right in the center of all, so wherever you heading- it’s perfect! Recommend it, but no applause.

Thank you for staying with us and we certainly hope you will stay with us again in the future. I am sorry to see the comment that we did not get any "applause". Our hotel and staff deliver the same outstanding and over the top concierge that we have been praised for in so many reviews. What special treatment was this guest expecting? I'm not sure but perhaps looking for B&B or mountain resort amenities at a boutique hotel... We offer many amenities for our guest within the scope of a boutique hotel and continue to add more and more all the time. Please call us and let us know where we were missing the mark.

I enjoy visiting the Latchis. This trip we bought a package deal and watched an Opera at the theatre. On another visit I actually went to the theater in my P.J's. The hotel is very clean although it can be too hot for me in the winter. Try to open your window a crack.

This was my second time in Brattleboro and at the Latchis. The hotel is a very comfortable art deco atmosphere hotel with an excellent friendly and accomodating staff. And it's location near the Amtrak station, near restaurants and shops and right across the river from the mountain in New Hampshire is perfect.I will be staying here on my future visits to Brattleboro.

Pros- Awesome movie theater! Convenient downtown location. Luckily I returned to the room to get something before the movie started and noticed the room was sweltering. Luckily I could turn the radiator off. Great advice from the front desk for restaurants.
Cons- Noisy street traffic. Many trucks, snowplows clearing sidewalks until midnight with their little beep beeps going everytime they backed up. Bring ear plugs. Shower was hard to get in and out of and for some people the floor is old and may be a turn off.

Would definitely return but would take a room on the back. We thought the noise wouldn't be an issue but we were wrong. It is a main thoroughfare!

Room Tip: Get a room on the back off the street even if you have no view or wear ear plugs!

I appreciate your review and as the manager, let me respond to some of your points.

We are very proud of our level of service to each and every guest, thank you for that feedback.
Heating control can be an issue with any older or historic building. We do our best. Each radiator does have it's own control which the guest can adjust.

In any urban setting where an accommodation faces a street one can and should expect street noise of varying levels. If this is disruptive to the persons' relaxation or sleep they should not choose a room facing the streetscape or they may ask for an alternative room. We are always happy to oblige. Please don't give the hotel bad marks, we cannot control the street noise.

The bathroom floors are historic, yes, they are 75 year old terrazzo that was hand poured and honed. We are proud of our lovely antiquity and ur guests love it! Hard getting in and out of the shower, perhaps... our tubs are 75 year old "soaking tubs" that have higher sides than the modern "normal". Perfect for soothing and relaxing aqua-therapy. Bring your bubble bath!

AS an added amenity, we offer the use of our "sound spa" units to create a relaxing mask from outside sounds. Guests really like them even in the quiet rooms. Just an added amenity we offer.

Nothing fancy, but clean, spacious, friendly and perfectly located. Would return in a heartbeat. Charming as the town itself. Skip the breakfast buffet and walk up the street to one of the great coffee shops. And be sure to check out the theater!

We booked this hotel from the Internet, so we didn't know exactly what the hotel was like. On our arrival we were greeted by a very friendly lady at Reception. When going up to our room on the second floor, it was like walking back in time. Beautifully restored interior, with furniture and décor that suited the hotels era. It is situated in the main street, right in the heart of town, so there is no need to drive anywhere. Rooms were clean and comfortable.
While you are in Brattleboro, I would highly recommend a visit to Sam's for clothing and camping gear, just up the road.

The Latchis Hotel and downtown Brattleboro, VT, are treasures. I stayed there last week for a board meeting. The building is impressive Art Deco and includes a first rate movie theater (one large screen in a grand historic theater plus 3 smaller screens; Argo was playing). The rooms are most comfortable while simple (we'd paid $95 including free continental breakfast, parking and wifi). Nice conference room. The staff is special; thus, when after a couple of days I realized I'd left my iPad charger in the electrical socket of my room and phoned the hotel, the staff had it in their lost and found and is mailing it to me!

The Latchis is in the center of a surprisingly delightful downtown. Brattleboro (about 12,000) sits on the banks of the Connecticut River, with wonderful views. Thus, the Whetstone Station (very good restaurant and bar) has decks projecting almost over the river. I walked around in the morning and found a neat coffee shop (Mocha Joe's Coffee Roasters), the Hotel Pharmacy in a Victorian Church, and huge independent sports and hardware stores. (Friends were visiting a special clothing/gift shop.) We later toured the new state-of-the art food Coop with its striking architecture, green technology, impressive food selection and in-house eating. All is highly walkable, including small bridges and pedestrian ways over the West River and along the Connecticut.

If you like exploring a real downtown, with its architecture intact, local businesses, and friendly folks, this is a natural. Brattleboro is located in the SE corner of Vermont - an easy exit off I 91.
