The Look

The Langham London is anything but ostentatious. Even after unveiling a five-year, $130 million renovation in 2011, the hotel still exudes a simple and understated elegance — as you’d expect from a classic English hotel with such a prestigious heritage. It traces its pedigree to 1865, when the Prince of Wales presided over the opening ceremony. The lobby has some impressive additions, including enormous marble pillars, hand-blown Murano glass chandeliers and Asian artwork.

Bed and Bath

The 380 guestrooms are simple but sophisticated. They utilize the finest fabrics, in jewel tones and slate grays (out with the floral carpets and drapes, in with minimalist-chic), and they have all the modern amenities you’d expect. Be warned: The signature Langham “Blissful Bed” may tempt you to sleep in, so request a wakeup call before lying down.

Beyond

The beating heart of the hotel is the Palm Court, a mirrored room with elegant velvet-covered sofas and red leather club chairs where tea lovers nibble on scones and finger sandwiches (like poached Scottish salmon with crème fraîche). Like the afternoon tea, meals at the hotel’s restaurant, Roux at the Landau, should be lingered over. Chef Chris King, who trained at Thomas Keller’s Per Se in New York, produces dishes that are not exactly traditional English — chorizo-filled rabbit legs with Scottish langoustines, for example — but are impressive nonetheless. The decadent Artesian cocktail bar is part Victoriana, part Oriental, with purple leather seats, chessboard tabletops, wooden chandeliers and pagoda-style cabinets that stock more than 50 types of rum.

Reviews

A grand oasis in the heart of London.

This was our 8th time at the Langham, and it never fails to impress. The beauty, comfort, security and service is just top notch in every category. Tastefully decorated, amazingly comfortable beds in quiet rooms with wonderful views. It is really hard to beat.

We have stayed at The Langham before and loved it both times. The service is excellent and the staff are all extremely friendly helpful. The rooms are great - best nights sleep in a long time.
Having access to the Club Lounge just makes the stay that bit more special. Will be staying on our next trip to London.

I recently came to London with my daughter for prolongated girls weekend. We were recommended The Langham London hotel and it exceeded every our expectations. The room was beautiful, nicely furnished and big, the lounge on 3rd floor had great breakfast and delicious afternoon snack/wine and cheese (and champagne ????) complimentary selection. We definitely will come back!
