Charming Boutique Hotel in the Heart of the City

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 7, 2013

The Latham's pricey, but it's a very nice, European boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Philadelphia. It has an Old World charm, with lovely architecture and decoration. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was elegant. Recommended for those that want a boutique experience and can spare the extra cash.

We had 24 hours in Philadelphia so we wanted a good but cheap hotel in the center, close to the main sights.

Latham Hotel is a nice old 3 star hotel (pic 1), centrally located so we could walk around easily (5’ walk from City Hall).

The check in at the central lobby (pic 2) was quick and the staff helpful with some questions but just that.

Our room (pic 3) wasn’t great but not terrible, I mean it was clean to the point you feel just ok. Anyway, the decoration was kind of heavy but I really didn’t care so much as we just overnight there and didn’t spend time in the room. There was a TV (pic 4) but we didn’t use it. The view from the window was at the back side of the hotel overlooking a parking (pic 5)

The bathroom was clean and we always like when some nice bath products are provided.

There is no breakfast in the hotel but there is a small café opposite the café and the city center is full of places (Reading Terminal Market isn’t far too).

We had free wi-fi in the room but the parking is very expensive.

Directions: From the 30th street train station we took the Subway(blue line) to 15th street and walked for 5’ to the hotel

There are lots of new hotels - Marriott at the Convention Center, Lowes... But I like The Latham for an elegant, small and convenient location near everything.

Unique Quality: Exercise facilities, parking, sunny rooms with cable TV, modem connections, coffee maker, marble baths.
