I live in Vermont and while on business to Brattleboro chose the Latchis because it has been an important preservation project for the state. I believe they are slowly, room by room, doing the full renovations, so when I chose the least expensive room available ($90/two twin beds), I didn't expect an art deco palace. What I did get was a very clean room with fully equipped and clean bathroom, with a window overlooking a small brook and the mountains around Bratteboro. Yes, the chairs and desk need to be stripped and refinihsed, but they are the original maple furniture, and the place is being restored as dollars are available. Which is why I'm giving them my small contribution by staying here and recommending it...
THe location is tops: it is in the town center, with several shops and restaurants to choose from, and Brattleboro food coop (with a full organic salad bar) is across the brook, accessible by a charming pedestrian bridge. In-room free, wireless high-speed internet!
I try to stay, when possible, in owner-occupied inns and B&Bs, and the old downtown hotels...But I do notice when a place is not clean, and the Latchis is clean and well maintained, not just a faded glory.
THe staff was welcoming and helpful, too
Next time I'll spring for one of the more expensive rooms to see the full extent of the renovation. BUt for the money, it is SO much better experience than the other choices in town (Super 8, Ramada, etc) If you want sterile and predictable, go to Hampton Inn....
