Strike it rich at The Langford Hotel, the residence-style accommodations in the former Miami National Bank building (now on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places). Newly reopened, the 1925 Beaux-Arts boutique gem is offering some buzzworthy updates on top of the glam history. There’s a rooftop lounge, for starters, and the restaurant comes courtesy of Pubbelly Restaurant Group, one of the buzziest names in Miami gastronomy.
You’re in downtown Miami, which means you’re walking distance from Bayside Marketplace – one of TripAdvisor’s top 15 things to do in Miami – and an easy drive from all the best neighborhoods. Just south is Brickell, an increasingly popular nightlife spot, and beyond that is Coral Gables; South Beach is a breezy 15-minute ride over the causeway. In fact, you could say that it’s this location where the hotel’s financial history really shines. What with its sheer centrality, you’re basically guaranteed a staggering return on your hotel-stay investment.
The Deluxe Queen and slightly larger Premium Queen rooms are comfy and spacious, with neutral palettes and plush furnishings, paired with high-tech extras like 48-in. HDTVs (with premium channels) and complimentary Internet access. The modern design is residential-style, with a touch of elegance, befitting the building’s Beaux-Arts architecture.
With an American craft eatery and a rooftop bar and lounge, the hotel offers plenty of opportunities for you to chill after a day of exploring Miami. PB Station, the latest from acclaimed Pubbelly Restaurant Group, serves American- and Latin-inspired steaks, seafood, spirits and other craft fare with locally sourced produce. The chef is none other than four-time James Beard-nominated Jose Mendin, so you know your meal is in good hands. If you want to sit back and soak in the surrounding Downtown Miami skyline, on the other hand, Pawn Broker crafts you cocktails and serves you tasty tapas-style plates.
Downtown Miami is a mecca for fashion, art and food, and the hotel puts you in the heart of this glamorous destination. A coastal metropolis full of historic buildings and modern skyscrapers, the larger city also offers plenty in the way of upbeat, interesting neighborhoods, like Coconut Grove, Key Biscayne and the Design District – all an easy drive away. Experience the wide variety of cuisine, the shops (both high-end and boutique-style) and the urban-meets-tropical vibes, and hop over the causeway with ease, for a taste of the sizzling SoBe scene.
How to Get There
We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was on the small side, but very clean and the bed was super comfortable. The staff were friendly. The location was great for us--walking distance to Bayside mall and other restaurants. The neighborhood was not upperclass, but we felt comfortable and safe. We were able to travel to this hotel from the airport using public transportation and a short walk. The hotel has a very charming outdoor roof top bar that had half price drinks for happy hour.
I stayed in room 1107 on Saturday night.
There was loud music when we checked into our room and we immediately called the front desk.
They informed us there was a nightclub/bar on the floor above us that was playing music.
They stated the music would stop by 12:30am. There was not offer to switch to another room.
This was the night of my Fiancée's birthday and she became ill and needed to stay in for the night.
I again called the front desk at 1am when the music did not stop.
They said the music would be done by 2am and thy said they could turn it down. At least the bass which was shaking our room.
The level was not turned down. The music lasted until after 2:30 and for another hour there was loud noises from dragging equipment on the floor. Needless to say, we did not get to sleep until almost 4am which is completely unacceptable.
They did offer a free stale breakfast which we did not even eat.
I contacted Carmen the front of house manager about our stay and there was no offer to help reimburse the horrible experience. I even sent several emails to her and gave every opportunity before leaving the reviews online.
We chose this hotel because we needed a downtown stay and we were positively surprised with the comfort and quietness of the room as well as their outstanding services
They offer a concierge service that is very helpful and the next door breakfast is heaven, the buffet is rich and varied, the staff is more than kind - special thanks to Melanie and Andrea who were extremely welcoming and caring
We are definitely choosing this hotel again
This hotel in a former bank building has a cool, historic feel to it. The rooms keep some vintage touches but are updated with modern, classy features. I saw some reviewers complain of noise from the rooftop bar. That wasn’t my experience, but I was on the 6th floor so it was very quiet. Location is good, close to bars and restaurants and a couple blocks from Bayfront Park. Staff was friendly and professional. The breakfast was very good, with a variety of foods on a buffet, coffees and made-to-order omelets. And at $15, not a bad price for Miami. James(?), the breakfast proprietor and a Barcelona native, was super nice and when I mentioned I was traveling there soon, he took the time to quickly type up a list of more than a dozen “must sees” including places the locals go — and go over details and history of each one.
I’ve stayed there for business and it’s about 5-10min ($6) Uber/cab drive to Brickell area. This is a great hotel. Super clean and nice, but have the old-fashioned European feel. Loved it and will stay there again.
