While looking for an inexpensive hotel to spend a night in the hotel, I came across the Latham. I was surprised, having been past the beautiful exterior many times. Having spent the night there, I'm still surprised it was so affordable.
The room, though not exceptionally large, was impeccable. In fact, the whole hotel was pretty, and felt expensive. The part of the hotel that really showed well was the service. Everyone we met, including the doorman and the front desk were extremely helpful, kind to my young children, and welcoming. After checking in and getting their advice on what to do for the evening, I was disappointed that I couldn't stay longer.
In general, the Latham is a smaller, boutique-style hotel. It's richly appointed, and has the feel of a much more expensive hotel. The hotel is located on the corner of 17th and Walnut which is just a couple minutes' walk from Rittenhouse Square, and puts it in close proximity to great shopping and restaurants. It also has a wine bar, though I did not have a chance to visit it.
