Stayed one night, the staff is SUPER friendly, really make you feel welcome. The hotel is not fancy but very clean. The room was small, but you can tell they take great care in keeping it up. The location is great. We checked out the theater, its beautiful.

We liked the style of this hotel, which has the theatre attached. Rooms were clean and acceptable, and staff were nice and friendly. It is in a good location in downtown Brattleboro with most places of interest within easy walking distance. Parking was pretty good for a centrally situated small hotel and we had no difficulty at all with it. Breakfast was a bit on the skimpy side, but coffee was good. All in all a good value stay in a nie, quirky hotel

I really appreciate your review, thank you! Yes, parking is free and on a first come first serve basis. Our dream is to have double the parking but where is the question. however the parking is not shared with the theatre and for hotel guests only.

Let's not mistake a "hot" breakfast for "continental". Our breakfast is advertised as "continental" style and for continental our breakfast is not at all skimpy. Full hot breakfasts are served at several of our downtown cafes and we encourage guests to venture out and experience these eateries.

Looking forward to seeing you again.

This is a beautiful old hotel located above a beautiful old movie theatre, right in the heart of Brattleboro. The bed was very comfortable and we loved the art deco feel of the place. It would have received 5 stars but the water pressure in the showers were an issue, with it starting and stopping as others in the hotel flushed the toilet or ran their showers. They should modernize their plumbing! Also, there was very limited parking, probably because of the movie theater, and we had trouble finding a place to park for the evening. Even so, I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

We really enjoyed our three day stay in Brattleboro and thought that the Latchis was lovely. It was like something from another era and a welcome change from 'chain' hotels.Our room was comfortable and well appointed. The staff were all lovely and I would like to make special mention of the gentleman who kindly helped me out with my laundry, rather than just give me directions to the nearest laundromat! We would definitely come back.

The building is beautiful but the rooms do not match that historical character in any way. My room had clearly been smoked in, the bed was in good condition but of cheap quality. The decor was quirky, but really not in a good way. Depressing actually. Is this hotel also an sro? I saw rooms that seemed to be homes, not hotel rooms. That makes me uncomfortable. If the room had been a bargain then i would give a higher rating, but for the price i recommend you look elsewhere.

Alison, the Latchis Hotel is not a residential hotel. The wing you were in is shared by our Housekeeping Manager's apartment. It is not uncommon for a hotel to have a Manager's apartment. I am sorry you felt uncomfortable having one of our managers residing in the hotel. Did you contact the front desk to inquire about the "situation"? We would have been more than happy to offer you another room away from our manager's apartment.

The bed frames, dressers and night stands are from 1938 and are vintage and original with the hotel. We make every effort to retain original furnishing while still making upgrades to other parts of the room for guest comfort. I'm sorry that the room you chose did not meet your needs. Perhaps checking with the Concierge would have resulted in making a better situation for you.

If you keep your expectations in check, you will be pleased with the vintage charm of this ole gal. We stayed in room 104. There was no outlet in the bathroom to dry hair. The footboard on the bed did not allow for long legs. Beds very comfortable. Room quiet location. Very basic breakfast (bagels, cereal, coffee, tea). I imagine if you had a king room, overlooking the river, it would provide for a nicer experience. All in all, okay for what it was.

Thank you for staying with us!

You are absolutely correct! The Mountain View rooms as we call them are larger rooms with the larger beds, have the fantastic views and a larger price tag. The rooms on the interior side are perfectly pleasant rooms and popular with guests who prefer more of a quiet experience as well as a more budget minded stay.

We do keep everything as original as we can with the rooms and are proud to still retain much of the original furnishings from when the hotel opened.

We are making every attempt to retrofit more of the bathrooms with wall mounted outlets and are about 1/2 done with the hotel. It is not an easy task by any means.

The hotel well located in Brattleboro. Room was large. The whole hotel is a bit dated. It is also a theatre. Basic breakfast. Parking available. Free internet at the lobby. A little bit too expensive.

We are "dated"... all the way back to 1938 and on the National Register of Historic Buildings. We strive to maintain our "historic" look and feel and that's what our guests love about us. Historic hotels are not for everyone but we are fabulous!. Our pricing is competitive with other hotels in our area and we are downtown in the middle of the action. Free high speed broadband internet is offered throughout the entire hotel, not just in the lobby. Breakfast is continental as we advertise, not a "hot" breakfast buffet. Sorry.
Glad you stayed with us! Thank you and hope to see you again.
