Price and location

Get MSNBC on your cable
I had forgotten about the complimentary car service and when my son needed to get back to campus in University City, we were going to put him in a cab. In the lobby, the driver immediately offered his services and promised that he would get my son back to school safe and sound. What a wonderful feeling knowing that the hotel offers such an excellent service to its guests. I am a lifelong fan!
Location, bed ,décor,price
No coffee pods or milk for coffee maker
Excellent Hotel--only place I stay anymore in Phila. Great location just off Rittenhouse Square and my fav restaurant Parc Rittenhouse. They actually gave us a free bottle of champagne just because I mentioned that my forst grandson was born on the day we checked in
There is nothing I do not like about this hotel
Food was very good. Hotel was very clean. The area of stay was within walking distance too everything.
Parking wasn't included. I booked the room for a price and at the end of the trip it doubled from parking, room service, etc. witch I understand but I've got hit with random fees/tax they should specify this from the beginning!
room furnishings cool pillows
burned muffins on eggs bennys towels thin
No money machine for outside call out delivery..late nights
It was a great getaway, right here in the city.
It was a bit quaint space.
I liked the location. It was accessible to everything. Courteous staff, and comfortable.
I have no complaints.
good facilities & location
room could have been cleaner
The room was great plenty of space, great bathroom, really comfy bed, Luxurious feel to the furniture. Doorman did a great job willing to help with everything, held our suitcases while we explored the city until 10pm on the day we checked out!
We felt as though the Latham staff genuinely cared for our comfort as if we were family or possibly hotel reviewers! The building itself was as superb as those who keep her in business. The Latham experience was a pleasure in every way.
Having to leave!
2nd visit. Great location. Courteous staff. Room very updated and sparkling clean and well furnished.
Best pillows I have ever slept on.
Phone in room did not work.
The towels in the bathroom needed to be replaced. They were thread bare almost.
We liked/loved everything. The look, feel, location & room at the hotel were all excellent. Value for money superb. We had dinner at the restaurant there and we would rate that a 10. Bar services was also up to that standard. Wished we could have stayed longer.
Good location in downtown Philadelphia
Price too high for the small room and the lobby was small and very congested.
Location, wine bar
Breakfast service was poor
Excellent location. Cheapest hotel in central Philly. Walked everywhere. Hotel was very nice, great bed and a nice view. Staff was very friendly.
No exhaust fan in the bathroom which was weird. Could hear people in the hallway as if they were in the room. Super dry heat gave me a stuffy nose and scratchy throat overnight.
Service, courtesy car to train station.
Breakfast not part of the deal
Cozy public areas Location to parade route, dining, museums, home to residents which I visited, shopping The Latham ride One driver, and one wait staffer have been familiar for years
Needed: a freight elevator. The 2 elevators for guests, were used for large, wheeled carts, and there was not adequate sq. footage for such traffic. This explains the elevators interior scars which need to be addressed.
The hotel had a driver meet us at the train. Very helpful!
The price and location where great for what we needed.
