Location near train and wedding Staff was fantastic Room was nice
The wifi was not so good and for the bathroom to be so nice the shower head was not powerful at all
Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was large and clean. Great location withing close walking distance to Rittenhouse square and great dining.
Price, location, clean rooms, comfortable beds, nice fitness facility, free wifi, staff was attentive and courteous, livery service within 2 mile radius was a great amenity
small spot of peeling paint in shower
The staff was very knowledgeable about the area & quite friendly. The hotel was clean. Great car service & close to those who like to shop! If you are more of a history buff though, I recommend staying further downtown. Regardless we were quite close to everything...
The tv cabinet was broken & there was a rip in our sheets, which, we didn't notice until late & didn't want to bother anyone about. No sugar or cream for the tea or coffee in the room. Rooms, hallways, elevators are VERY cramped. Just slightly too far away from the historic sights...
the location - the room
I don't see really
Amenities were perfect. Best one, the driver who takes you anywhere in city. Will go back again,
They need new pillows, it was either too squishy or to hard...the bed itself was comfy, though!
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
The Latham Hotel was very nice, easy to find and very near plenty of sights in Philly. The staff were very knowledgeable, and their complimentary car service meant we were able to leave the city center and see some interesting bits of Philly that might not be on the usual tourist route. All the drivers were friendly, the hotel was clean and we had a wonderful few days in the hotel.
I really only had two complaints. The first was that since our room was right by the elevator, we were woken up by other guests coming home late and being loud, but it wasn't bad enough that we felt the need to ask for a different room. The second was that the car service stops at 9pm, which we weren't aware of when we went to dinner at 7pm (the driver took us to the location) and while it wasn't too much of an issue to call a taxi, it would have been nice to know that there was a cut off time prior to us leaving...
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.
The hotel was impeccable and relaxing. Perfect location to everything for shopping, restaurants, etc. staff was awesome and very accomodating.
The only downfall to this hotel is the bar/restaurant as it was overpriced and the bartender was more concerned that we came in right to closing so he had an attitude. Also is you are going charge me $14 for a glass of wine please fill the glass and also advise me in advance by way of a wine list.
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.
