I live in philly & decided to stay & eat at the Latham with my husband for our anniversary .. The food was excellent
The only downfall was they didn't honor my request
We loved the unfeigned positivity of the staff - the informed and friendly anticipation of what we might need. This gorgeous, well appointed hotel is located close to so many of the attractions that makes Philadelphia a wonderful place for a business event.
Good location and good value for money.
Old four star hotel.
Every thing was great
Price is high
Good location, close to many shops, restaurants and main attractions
A bit noisy at night from hall way
I loved the location! It really is close to everything and in a very beautiful and safe part of the city. The staff were very helpful and the room was gorgeous!
The elevators are a bit small, just FYI if you have large bags or suitcases.
Breakfast. Room. Location. Staff.
Really everything was very good
The room was not cleaned after the first night
Lovely hotel in central location with very friendly, helpful staff. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.
Not a complaint but would have really appreciated a kettle in the room. Coffee machines tend to make tea taste of coffee!
The location is excellent! Room was very clean. Surroundings in room were comfortable.
Inconsistency in staffing for the front of house made me feel uneasy. Stayed there 7 days and must have been 12-15 different people. Very few were knowledgable and polished in regard to demeanor, overall look, and attention to detail. Suggest setting standards for all to meet and then checking up to see if meeting expectations. I remember when the Latham was one of the more classy places which carried through to all the employees then. Sorry for being so honest but felt let down and was a little creeped out by a few people.
Great location and great room service menu
The pillows were thick and not comfortable
Location, Room, Bed ...
The location of the hotel to shops and restaurants. The door man was very helpful with hailing cabs and giving general directions. The room was very clean and the hotel was very quiet.
I was asked after booking if I had preferred a higher floor room or a lower floored room. I asked for a higher floor and when we checked in we were put on the second floor in the corner facing an alley. I was slightly disappointed with the room selection and how in the morning trucks would drive through the alley and create tons of noise. I feel that the hotel was not fully booked and putting us in a higher floor shouldn't have been a problem.
Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean.
The location of the hotel was good and the valet services were strong. Facilities in the room were decent.
The housekeeping was extremely disruptive and loud. When she knocked at the door it was repeatedly and very loudly as if the hotel was on fire. The front desk told me I could not have late checkout as the hotel was full. Few minutes later I heard her colleague give someone else late checkout. Come on, not even an hour on one room when I had 2 rooms?
Free WiFi Free car service Keurig in the room Fridge in the room LOVED the pillows!
Would have preferred a slightly larger fridge as you could fit much it there.
Location, comfort and staff
Not overwhelming luxurious, but fantastic for the money.
Latham Hotel was a gem! My boyfriend and I truly had a great experience. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Great little history lesson from our driver. So much we loved. Exactly what we needed.

Asked for a late check-out: We were visiting Philadelphia because my daughter was rowing at Philly Youth Regatta and then flying out the same day to Europe! They made it possible for her to come back to the hotel and shower and change before leaving for the airport. THANK YOU! Also, I took the car early in the morning to drop her off with her crew. The Latham Hotel gave my husband a ride down to the river in time for her race. They also lent him an umbrella. Again, a big thank you.
We were told that breakfast started at 6:15am. We showed up at 6:30, looking forward to a healthy start before my daughter's race. The restaurant was still closed! Fortunately, the front desk staff directed us to an all night diner about a block away. When we returned almost an hour later, the lights in the restaurant were on, but still not open! As it was rainy and cold, it would have been a nicer start to the day to have had breakfast at the hotel restaurant. But see what we did like... they made it up to my husband!
Good location, strong Wi-Fi connection, complimentary car service, cucumber water in lobby
Air conditioner broke in our room, room was 80 degrees so I called the front desk and I was advised to "open a window" because it was midnight and the maintenance staff had gone for the evening. Eventually moved to the room next door where our room phone did not work and there was a large blood stain on our flat sheet in one bed. I went down to the front desk and it took over 15 minutes to get a sheet replacement. The front desk attendant did not even offer to take the extremely stained sheet out of my hands when I went down to talk to her about the issue and was not apologetic in the slightest until we asked to have a later checkout time because of the hours of sleep we lost due to the room problems.
Beds very comfortable Very clean Lots of great shops and restaurants with-in walking distance. Door men were very helpful
No vending machine on property
I left my favorite shoes in my room and only found out a week after I was already in NY, and I was traveling to San Francisco. I sent an email to the front desk, who referred me to the housekeeping team. Guess what. They found my shoe and had it shipped to San Francisco! I really appreciate it. They did not have to go through the trouble, and they did. Most of all, I appreciate that the housekeeping team is honest. Bravo!
