    Latham's location was prime and good value for money... but we split a double room among three people. Clean place with friendly staff. Would stay there again.

    They charged us one dollar per bag to store our bags after check-out. We'd already paid a fairly high price for the hotel and valet, and they want three bucks? Just seemed cheap.

    Great room, spacious and clean. Comfy beds. Ensuite bathroom. Good location. Friendly staff. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel and the room after having read some not-so-nice reviews, but I really enjoyed my stay at the Latham Hotel and would recommend it to other travellers.

    Housekeeping service was good. The room was spacious for a European boutique. Valet was convenient. Really good location.

    The wi-fi was inconsistent. There was sometimes no one staffing the frontdesk and/or valet.

    This is an older hotel but is clean, safe and fairly comfortable. Nothing fancy. The location to shopping, museums and restaurants is great. Walking distance to so much.

    Very good location, close to city centre.

    Pressure of warm water in the shower not strong enough. Difficulties to set up air condition. AC flowing directly on the bed.

    everything is ok

    I was told by my cresit bank that the total price for me there is 125.75 usd, but the actual deducted sum is 175.75 usd, i dont know why. when i leave USA, i will track this problem coz i think it is a mistaken charge for me.

    The location in downtown Philadelphia was perfect for the event we attended. The staff at the hotel were very helpful with directions and getting our room earlier than planned.

    There was only one elevator in service so the wait for the elevator was too long.

    It was safe, clean and convenient. However the they had only one operating elevator which made it difficult to egress

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Price and location were very good. Fitness center was also good. Staff was pleasant as well.

    One of the 2 elevators was out of service. Other was slow. No breakfast offered. Floor on hallway (13th floor) was quite uneven, and carpet was tattered.

    It was good value for the money to attend a family wedding near by.

    It was what I expected for the money, a great old building

  • Group of friends

    It was in a great location.

    The bed was extremely uncomfortable and was a full bed and we requested a queen/king bed.
