The location.

There wasn't anything specific about the hotel itself. I just didn't know a European-styled room came without a 'quote unquote' bathroom in the sense of an American bathroom. The toilet out like that is probably best for a single individual stay.

The room was very stylish. Good value for the price and location.

We were given the very first room on the ground floor so we could hear everything that went on in the lobby all night. Luckily I have a white noise app that was able to distract me enough to get some sleep

Would definitely stay here again. ... more

We would highly recommend The Latham Hotel. Service and convenience to all restaurants and museums are minutes away. Also, the staff was accommodating when we needed something fixed in our room.

Everything was perfect.

The Latham is a boutique hotel that reminds us of a European hotel. Mostly business people check into these hotels. Very quiet. ... more

The room was nice. The staff members were nice.

Nowhere on the website had I seen mention of the $42 overnight parking charge! That's a big extra fee to just slide in. Also, there was no lobby (under construction). And the construction (banging and drilling) began at 7:00 am.

I followed signs to the only open public space in the morning. My room key opened the door to the unattended breakfast room, which I entered to sit down and read. I was soon asked to leave by a nice staff member who came in. He said only people who had stayed in the hotel 6 times or more were welcome. I'll definitely not choose to return a 2nd time, much less a 6th. ... more
Poor 1.0
Apr 2 2014

First of all, the hotel was undergoing major renovations, and if we knew that the conditions would be so overwhelming we would not have stayed here.

The staff was rude and when we asked for a different bed or location of our room, they didnt even look into the computers, flat out said no. They were over booked (so they said) i know i will not be the only one saying i was extremely disappointed.

For the amount of money it costs to park (38$) and the price of the room (----)which i got as a deal on this website, i would have expected way more out of a night in philly. We stayed in town for the Philly love run and the hotel was not condusive to sitting around in a lobby and chatting with friends. There was no lobby and no where to actually hang out except our room. The bar in the hotel was closed and it was a major disappointment. ... more

The employees at the front desk and in maintenance were all very nice and helpful. We weren't from the area, so the front desk gave us recommendations and told us where everything was. The room was so nice! The bed was super comfortable. Great location!

The hotel is right in the middle of everything, so during rush hour it's a little difficult to drive around. There are a lot of one way streets. But it's worth it!

The hotel has a bar/restaurant that is excellent! There are many tourist spots around that are a short drive away. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Philly! ... more

The room was very clean and comfortable. Quick access to coffee and tea in the lobby with plenty of available tables made it nice while walking back and forth between destinations. Location next to reading terminal market and china town was great!

My only real complaint is that a trash bag was left in the hall next to our room. Despite calling the front desk about it, it was there the next day and I had to ask again.

The tv was slow and didn't always work, but I wasn't there to watch tv. Staff was polite. Again, location was much better than expected. The free breakfast was average. I recommend walking the two blocks to reading terminal market and grabbing a bacon egg and cheese pretzel, though. ... more

The two bedroom suite is spacious, beautiful, clean and in a fabulous location. The staff is great. The on-site restaurant has good food. We loved this facility!

It is hard to come up with anything. One minor issue is the lack of overhead lighting. The main rooms had lamps that didn't provide a great deal of light to read by or apply makeup. Other than this very minor flaw, the accommodations were outstanding.

This hotel is nearly perfect - clean, roomy, well designed, and well-located. It is moments away from shopping and dining. Our room offered a beautiful view of Rittenhouse Square. The staff was extremely helpful and professional. My family loved the suite and the facility. We will stay here again on our next trip to Philadelphia! ... more

Great location, beautiful suite, appealing restaurant, courteous staff.

It was a busy weekend with UPenn graduation, etc. I was in suite 902 facing 18th street. I guess the bars let out at around 2am and I was awakened at around 2:30 from honking that lasted until around 4am.

I would definitely recommend the hotel to friends and have already done so. I love boutique hotels, and this one is terrific. ... more

Good location for the things we needed to do in Philly The breakfast buffet has good selection but the space for service is very badly organized and not many tables

Our room was in need of refurbishment the doors did not shut easily to bathroom and bedroom and couch was dirty. Car parking by valet only and very expensive. if you need a taxi make sure they get a metered one not a private hire one

I am sure many of the rooms were in a better state than the one we were placed in with our booking through Priceline. Generally the hotel is centrally located easy to find and did have the amenities it said it had but we had just stayed in the Washington DC Embassy suites at Chevy Chase Pavilion and there is no comparison between the 2 - the DC one was great and this one seemed tired and sad. Small things like the plastic glasses at the evening reception make it tacky. ... more

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
