On a busy Midtown block, The Langham, New York has a simple exterior that belies the modern style in neutral-tone oak, limestone, and onyx. It’s the kind of place that makes you speak in hushed tones and soak up the welcome—and carefully engineered—sense of calm. From the personal assistants to the maze-like spa, the hotel has a stately, elegant air that appeals to the business crowd as much as weekenders looking to splurge in style, and New Yorkers after a staycation. The 214 loft-like guest rooms and suites are among the city’s largest, with oversize windows that offer both sprawling city views and warm natural light along with panels of Italian walnut and rosewood, stark white linens, and slate-gray accents that lend an organic, subtly masculine vibe. The bathrooms, which are bigger than some city apartments, feature rain showers, televisions inset in the mirrors, and Zuma soaking tubs that look comfortable enough to sleep in. This cool kid on the block has already shown it can keep pace with the best of them, housing Michelin-starred Ai Fiori, his-and-hers Julien Farel salons, and the Chuan Body + Soul spa, which occupies the entire fourth floor. For an early morning workout during your New York excursion, there’s an impressive 24-hour gym that’s fit for athletes and insomniacs alike. After all, New York is the city that never sleeps. But if you must, do it in a Duxiana bed.
In the Area
Get a culture fix at MoMa, a must-visit Midtown museum housing the world’s best collection of modern masterpieces, or thumb your way through an original Gutenberg Bible and Mozart’s own copy of his Symphony in D Major at the Morgan Library & Museum. For a memorable New York meal, slurp raw oysters on the half shell at the Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant, buried in Grand Central Terminal’s cavernous depths, or walk south to Madison Square Park and get in line for your must-try burger at Danny Meyer’s Shake Shack.
How to Get There
Very nice hotel located in midtown NYC, decent views of Empire State Building, very large rooms and baths for NY, very quiet, easy to go up or downtown from here, staff is very knowledgeable, helpful and FRIENDLY, great breakfast next door at Maison Kaiser. Some areas are a little worn but it is because the hotel was purchased as is and is waiting on update from Langham brand--it definitely has the Langham customer service!
I only stay in five star hotels, all over the world. Langham when available. Langham NYC reliably the favorite. Never received less then the best service; hotel room is spacious, comfortable, and exquisitely good looking. Smart, sophisticated this hotel has it all. Best staff anywhere, five years in a row in my experience, and going strong.
Perfect location! Beautiful modern hotel . Top notch . Staff goes above and beyond to make sure you are completely satisfied. Noah and Abu at the door were terrific. We highly recommend this hotel as your perfect vacation👍 and definitely will come back
Prior to arrival The Langham's reservation specialists, concierge team and service stylists were extremely professional and responsive to any question we had about our upcoming stay. Our flight was moved up due to weather and we were able to check in early which was greatly appreciated after traveling.
When we arrived we were quickly greeted by the staff and one who kindly offered hot chocolate to our daughters. We were advised that a suite was available and were shown two rooms - our original (family double with kitchen) and a one bedroom suite. We decided to upgrade to the one bedroom suite. We stayed 6 nights and honestly it was well worth the money to the one bedroom.
The suite was very clean and spacious. The living room was starting to show some signs of wear but nothing that is not to be expected with a hotel that operates at high occupancy year round. We had a great view of the Empire State Building which was neat to see light up at night. The room was very modern and well appointed. Having the separate bedroom worked well for our family and the washer and dryer was a nice feature as well. Our daughters loved the deep soaking tub. We stumbled upon Lush around the corner and they had fun every night with bath bombs while watching TV in the mirror. The nightly turn down service was wonderful and the girls loved the cookies each night.
The location is terrific. Honestly, I could not have picked a better area. We were within walking distance to Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Times Square and MSG. It was perfect for us to be centrally located and a short walk or car ride to all the things on our list.
What makes The Langham stand out the most are the staff and their unparalleled level of service. Every person we met was incredibly nice and welcoming. From the doormen to the front managers to the service staff...everyone remembered us, always asked if they could be of assistance and how our stay was going. Our room was impeccably cleaned every day and she even left a note on the last day thanking us for the tips. I have never experienced a hotel where every team member encompasses such a high level of customer service.
We have booked the The Langham in Chicago for this summer and will stay at TLNY when we visit again!
I stayed for 3 nights and was just very amazed by this great service. The suites are superb, the location good, the Team outstanding! Had some hours to spend at the spa, also very good - all in all I would definitely recommend anyone to stay in this hotel!!!
