The Langham is the latest hotel to inhabit the old Federal Reserve Building overlooking Post Office Square in the Financial District. The luxury chain fits in, offering refined dining options like The Reserve Champagne Lounge, where every guest can enjoy afternoon tea. Cafe Fleuri houses a fantastical Saturday Chocolate Bar, and an equally elaborate Sunday brunch, while BOND restaurant represents something more modern, with DJs spinning for the evening cocktail scene. The Chuan Body + Soul spa draws inspiration from traditional Chinese medicine for its facials and body treatments.
In the Area
Positioned at the heart of the Financial District, the Langham is minutes from Boston’s South Station and Logan Airport. Nearby attractions include the Old State House, as well as Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. The up-and-coming Seaport district is also close, where local institutions like Legal Harborside and No Name sit on water’s edge with prime views. The renowned Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA) hosts world-class exhibitions in a light-filled modernist waterfront space.
How to Get There
I can imagine that the Langham Boston was one of the best hotels in Boston at one time. Today the comfort is gone, technology is ancient, and hospitality a bit too traditional even for me (and I'm not a millennial.) I gave the hotel 4 stars because they are trying, just not trying with any creativity.
We could not have asked for more professional service and comfortable accommodation. Great breakfast menu, with massive weekend buffet. Good bar with excellant seafood selections. Walking to many good restaurants. Love the walking distance mix of "new world" financial district convenience and "old Boston" historic streets.
The hotel is nice, it’s well located in the financial district and the service is great but the rooms could use a renovation. It just seems to be old and no updates in the decor in a really long time.
