"Great hotel and excellent service!"
The hotel was fantastic and Roman (the driver) was incredible! Roman was a s star!!! I would have given the staff but the guy who checked me in was extremely rude and unenthusiastic. I may be picky but when someone in the service industry (especially a nice hotel) wont smile, well you need to find a new job sir!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Highly recommend the Latham Hotel,Rittenhouse area"
We love this small hotel and this is our third stay. It is quiet,very attractive, and in a wonderful part of Philadelphia, surrounded by excellent cafes and restaurants. The French cafe across the street is delightful. The free parking that was included in the summer special was much appreciated. Our only complaint would be that the mattress was too […] soft. Other than that, we were again very happy at the Latham. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel"
The Latham is a nice old-type hotel. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are updated. We were less than thrilled about the breakfast that we had. The croissant was cold, dry, and tasted like it was purchased from a low-end supermarket several days ago. Some of the items that were supposed to be part of the breakfast were not included. Next time, […] I would go out for breakfast. Other than this, we had a nice stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"two day visit to Philadelphia"
Good location within reasonable walking distance to university campus and old town. Nice old building with refurbished rooms. Clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Lathum Hotel"
The Lathum is beautiful, very clean and perfectly decorated with lots of class. It is right in the middle of the city - Center City. It is accessable to so many shops, boutiques, restaurants & cafe's, and well within walking distance!! Their restaurant is delicious and the staff were highly accomodating and pleasant. I will MOST DEFINITELY stay here […] again!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Overall a very nice stay, the breakfast service in the restaurant could be improved with additional staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Latham Hotel - Good for families"
Traveled with my two, teenaged children, who found Latham Hotel comfortable and accommodating. It is conveniently located in a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood, with good restaurants nearby and great shopping even closer. Also, historic sections of Philadelphia are accessible on foot (30 minutes' walk). Rittenhouse Square market on Saturdays is a big […] plus. Also, the hotel's offer to transport its guests to and from local sites (like the Philadelphia Museum of Art) free of charge is generous and greatly appreciated. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Best hotel in the whole weekGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Award winning performance"
This hotel is great! Peter is hands down, the absolute best. I'd return just for his service. The location is superb and car service was a life saver. Oh and the cookies....delicious. Yes...cookies.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very close to downtown"
Very friendly and helpful staff. The room was very clean and quiet. Check in and out was efficient and pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Location, Comfortable, Helpful Staff"
We have only good things to say about our stay at the Latham. Although we never were able to use the Hotels Limo service since we're walkers, that's a nice added perc and as far as we we're concerned the location near Rittenhouse Square could not have been better for a 5 day stay in Philadelphia. Room Service was quite good, the desk and bell staff […] were all excellent and at least from our room on the 8th floor, there was no traffic or city noise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A bit disappointing for the price"
The location of this hotel and the great service by the doorman whose name I am sorry to say I have already forgotten saved this from being one of the worst hotel experiences. Our room was so humid it felt like we were still outside in the 95 degree heat. Turning the air on just got us cold and wet. Upon arriving late in the evening there was no one […] to help us with the car or luggage. Since I was leaving my car on the street until someone could park it later, I took everything out, then found out there was no bellman. So my daughter and I lugged everything to the smallest elevator I ever saw where we barely fit with our luggage and us. There were no cups in the bathroom, and the floor was a bit dirty. Thankfully in the morning there were more staff to help us and again the wonderful doorman who helped me with directions, plans for my trip to the Phillies game and my luggage upon checkout. Not sure if I would stay here again, as the room was small and uncomfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Outstanding hotel in an excellent location"
We were very impressed with the Latham Hotel overall. The location was perfect for exploring Philadelphia. The hotel itself was just right for our needs. Most of the staff was courteous and extremely helpful - especially the doormen. The only problems were the non-existent concierge and the drab decor in the rooms. Otherwise, we had an excellent st […] ay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is located close to many shops and restaurants, so you don't need to always have your car. The room was very nice and the staff was very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Boutique Hotel...close to it all!"
Very pleasant stay. Close to all the sights, if you like to walk. A TON of cool eateries around. Would not use the valet service though. 38 for valet per day. Parking lot down the street was 5 bucks cheaper. Plus we waited for 20 minutes to get the car. No biggie because we were not in a rush but would be annoyed if we were.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was wonderfully located, within walking distance to a variety of things to do in downtown Philadelphia (including Love Park, Reading Terminal Market, shopping, dining, etc). The hotel was modern, clean, and comfortable, but what really set the experience apart was the staff. They were incredibly helpful and accommodating. The concierge was […] priceless in his advice. I highly recommend staying at the Latham! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"middle of everything"
Was a little more expensive then we normally pay, but was well worth it. The room included a car that would take us places withing a certain distance. Roman was very friendly and even gave us some interesting facts about the city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet hotel with a central location"
This was our first stay at this hotel, and we were very pleased. It was small and quiet. Rooms have been updated and the bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've slept in. We were in Philly for a long weekend, and the location of the hotel was ideal. Centrally located to the historic district, shopping and dining. Only a few blocks walk to […] the Phlash bus stop and to the orange line train, which takes you to the sports complex. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful with any questions that we had.

"you get what you pay for"
This hotel definitely isn't bad if you are doing a one night, in and out stay in Philadelphia. You can't beat the location, close to restaurants, shops, 2 blocks from lovely Rittenhouse Square. But the rooms are small, the bathrooms needs updating. It lacks some of what I consider basics like a fold open luggage rack to put your carry one, bathrobes, […] etc. It's kind of like staying in a slightly nicer version of a Courtyard Marriott. Decent, clean, but nothing special. For not too much more, you could be more comfortable in the very nearby Kimpton or Sofitel. Still, as I said, for a quick in and out it's fine.

"Awesome Small Hotel"
I booked a stay at the Latham at my sister's advice. I was not disappointed. It has a boutique feel and crisp, modern look to the rooms. I got better amenities than I did when I stayed at the Four Seasons at the end of the week. The free wi-fi, coffee, tea and water made me feel comfortable and the location cannot be beat. I will definitely stay there […] again. It was a great price for 5-star service and attention. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"In the heart of downtown Philly"
Great hotel to base a historic / cultural / upscale shopping / good restaurant, big city stay. Very friendly staff. Room a bit cramped for four adults.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great staff, central location"
The Latham is centrally located in downtown Philly, several blocks from the historical area to the east and the Fairmount Park / museum area to the west. It's not a five-star luxury hotel, just a very nice boutique one. The rooms aren't large, but well designed and nicely appointed The lobby is small, but adequate for the purpose. The elevators are […] small, but responsive. And the management is clearly doing more than most to be environmentally responsible. But where The Latham really shines is in friendly, attentive service. We used the free, chauffeured car service twice and each time were treated to an informative running commentary on the sights going by. The staff in charge of valet parking was prompt and courteous, and the desk staff was attentive and helpful. Yes, we would go back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staff were very accommodating. Allows pets which made our travel easier. Location is convenient to many stores and close to the University of Pennsylvania. Breakfasts were very good. Restaurant has a comfortable feel and food was quite good. Wine bar has a nice selection.Genuine Expedia guest review
"38 bucks for valet????????"
Although I got a fair price on hotels.com for the room I was sad to finally arrive at the Latham after driving 3 hours in traffic and realize that in order to valet my car it was gonna cost me 40 bucks. I hate that this hotel overcharged me simply because they could. Parking is a freaking nightmare up there so what was I suppose to do after a long ride […] in. Absolutely crazy it cost 38 bucks a NIGHT to stash a car. NEVER AGAIN. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Latham is in one of the best locations in Philadelphia. One block from Rittenhouse Square and walking distance to everything. It is a boutique hotel. The rooms were small but comfortable except for the air conditioning. Our air conditioner did not work so we were relocated from a street view to a brick wall view (disappointing). Our friends in other […] rooms also experienced problems with air and sinks. Elevators slow but friendly staff. We would recommend this hotel even with the minor problems because of its great location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Comfortable, convenient hotel."
Enjoyed smaller, centrally located hotel. Attractive comfortable room. Very easy to access off 476, with valet parking facilitating easy check in. Good shopping, restaurants near by. Walked to all sites of interest, but public transport available. Rittenhouse Square not the draw expected due number of homeless (?) gathering there in summer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Great location! Otherwise slightly less than adequate. The valet service was awful. No one helped me as I was obviously struggling to get my bags out of the car. When I needed my car, they took a half hour to find it. The room was attractive at first. It became less attractive as the toilet ran all night and I had to get up and shut the water off. Not […] impressed! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Door Men were friendly and gave us great advice on our visit to Philly. Front desk was excellent. Great place to stay centrally downtown in a very safe environment.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel close to sites."
Hotel is clean and staff is friendly. Parking is expensive and you can find it cheaper around the corner. The location is great and in walking distance to all the tourist places. The only con was the lack of ice machine on every floor. They will bring you some if requested. The room size is generous for a city hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay in Philly"
The Latham is a beautiful old building. The room was a bit small, but had nice bay windows and lots of light. The hotel offers a free car service to destinations within a certain distance of the hotel, which came in very handy on a rainy day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not as nice as the hotels down the street..."
The beds are comfortable and the gym is nice. Both the rooms and the lobby are really small (and only two small elevators in the lobby, so I opted for the stairs a couple of times.) Although the location is great, I will stay somewhere else nearby next time. The housekeeping staff was extremely noisy in the morning and despite the fact that we had requested […] a late check out on our second morning, they still knocked at 11:30 to ask if we were checking out. But what was more irritating was watching a manager and two front desk agents stand around and chat with each other while we waited patiently for 15 minutes for the bellman to show up and store our luggage. The bellman was clearly very busy, but the staff could be a little more proactive. The Sofitel and Palomar are just down the street and have better service and are nicer properties, so there is no need to go back to the Latham unless you want a slightly cheaper price.

"Modern rooms and excellent staff!"
I was really impressed with the hotel on arrival. Staff meant me at my car and informed me of parking opinions. Check in was fast and easy. Room was good size and had mini frig, safe, and Keurig coffee maker. Room was clean and had a modern feel. We didn't have the best view but it wasn't that big of a deal. Bed was comfortable but did have a hard time […] sleeping first night. It was Saturday night so a lot of people were out but we could hear elevators and noise outside and took a long time falling asleep. Second night was much better and fell right asleep. Hotel had a car service and we didn't have to wait at all to use it. The two gentlemen that drive us were wonderful! Very informative about the city and told us about things as we drove by them. They were excellent ! The hotel was in a nice area and within walking distance of lots of shopping and restaurants. I would definetly stay at this hotel again. The major pros were the room and amenities in it, car service, and #1 is staff, can't say enough good about doormen and drivers! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Above and Beyond Service"
Stayed one night for my girlfriend's birthday and couldn't have been happier with the experience. From the newly renovated room to the free car service, this was really a fantastic stay.

"Excellent, but expensive parking and patchy wifi"
As a hotel, the Latham does all the basics extremely well. Rooms are clean, comfy and the service is great. The location is also perfect for Philly center city, and 'federal donuts' is seconds away. However, wifi, especially in the corner rooms can be patchy or non-existent - not great if you are trying to work. The parking is also expensive, $38 for […] overnight, although we were informed that parking is available for cheaper in the surrounding area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
