On hotels dot com this hotel has 3.5 stars. NO WAY. We stayed here March 15-17. The price was OK ($139 a night) because we needed to be city center, and most places around there are about $50 more. If you can spare the $50 extra for another hotel, spend it. The cover on the bed was ripped and old. The carpeting was dirty. The place smells like an ashtray. The front desk girls were snippy and barely wanted to deal with anyone. We did, however, have a great bathroom, which made up for the so-so room. If you are a germophobe and cannot stay at a questionable establishment, do not stay at the Latham. If you just need a place to sleep for a reasonable price in the center of Philadelphia, then it's not so bad.
Pros: Location in nice and close to everything
Cons: Old, ripped linens, dirty carpeting, no soap in bathroom
