Langham Hotel Boston

Jan 2, 2013
2007

Arrival/Check-in: I arrived at the hotel a little after midnight on a Thursday evening. Despite the late hour, the staff was alert and friendly and check-in was fairly speedy. There were few staff members around and no one assisted me with taking my bags up to my room.
(18/20)

Guest Quarters: The Langham Hotel, housed in the former Federal Reserve Bank building, has more than 300 rooms. Mine was spacious, with two window-lined walls, boasting beautiful views of the Boston skyline. The room was decorated brightly with the signature Langham Blissful Sleep bed, couch, armoire, dresser and night table, each offering plenty of drawer and storage space. The desk was adequately sized for my computer and other work items without being obtrusive in the room. Internet was available for a daily fee and the room offered a coffeemaker, minibar, high-end toiletries and a safe large enough for laptops. When I arrived in my room, I was greeted with fresh pastries and chocolates. The hotel offers a nightly turndown service. It would have been nice to have more countertop space in the bathroom, but overall the room was comfortable. On a hotel site tour, I saw some of the other rooms at the Langham, including the Presidential Suite: an exclusive hideaway, beautifully furnished and available with butler service. (14/15)

Services/Amenities: The most popular spot at the Langham is Café Fleuri, the hotel’s full-service restaurant, which, at lunchtime, brings in a sea of power suits for clever twists on local favorites like Chatham cod and Cape clam bourride and the “Boston Baked Beans Lunch” featuring a Kobe beef hotdog. On Saturdays from September through May, chocolate fever takes over at the “world-famous” chocolate bar. With over 100 types of chocolate desserts, this one-of-a-kind take on brunch is not to be missed. The Sunday Jazz Brunch is also excellent, with a jazz trio providing background music for an extensive brunch menu. Café Fleuri also offers a unique pregnancy menu, specifically created to offer healthy menu options for the expectant mother. Another favorite of locals and visitors is the Julien Bar, which serves 101 varieties of martinis. The hotel also has a full-service gym and a pool, as well as event and conference facilities.
(45/45)

The Experience: The location is fantastic — close to many of Boston’s main attractions. The cool, luxurious atmosphere of the hotel ensures you will have a relaxing stay. (19/20)

Total Score: 96/100
