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.

How to Get There
Expensive hotel for very little.
Does not have its own bar, its a public bar and n the three occasions we attempted to have a drink, it was too busy twice and final time we had 5 glasses of a reasonable red wine costing $205 plus tip , a bottle of cider was $32.
The restaurant was doing us a favour in seating us, its also a public restaurant, extremely over priced but it does have a star !
The complimentary car service was always busy, despite a first come , first served basis !!
After travelling for a long day, our request for the third bed to be made up early , so our daughter could sleep was ignored times and finally happened at 21.40, although standard turn down is between 20.00 and 21.00.
Welcome back Mrs. Lee. That is what I heard every time I returned to the hotel...even if just for a few hours.
I can not find the words to describe how absolutely perfect The Langham is.
Large, immaculate, modern rooms with huge very modern bathrooms.
Every request gets a, "it would be my pleasure Mrs. Lee"
Fabulous, fun bar.
Michelin Star restaurant
House car available to transport you
Lobby: Coffee and a bite in the morn., snack and infused water in the afternoon, evening.
I can not wait to return.
This hotel hits perfect on all fronts.
A must for NYC
We had a complicated itinerary. My family had already arrived in New York and I joined them a few days later. After taking a redeye and navigating the bowels of JFK, I hopped into a Uber and was transported to the Langham. It was around 5 AM, I was pretty much expecting them to tell me that my room wasn't ready and that I would have to wake up my wife and kids and find a spot on the sofa to catch a nap. Amazingly, my room was ready, so I groggily followed the bellman to my room, which was a large corner room on the 5th floor with views of 5th Avenue. I wasn't sure what the decor of the room would be, but it was pretty modern, neutral color palette, large king sized bed in the middle, and a pretty good sized bathroom. It was a very good-sized room for Manhattan. I was pretty happy, but wasn't sure if I would encounter a lot of traffic noise later in the morning. I took my nap, wasn't disturbed by the traffic noise, but this was Saturday morning, so I'm not sure what it'd be like during a weekday. I woke up, met my family in their room, which had a full kitchen, which was great for a family. Since my stay was only for 1 night really, I didn't have a large amount of interaction with the staff. The doorman apparently remembered my kids. That was a nice touch. Upon checking out, the clerk realized I had not spent any of my credits booking through AMEX and let me pick up some Langham-branded items on sale for my kids. That was an unexpected nice touch. I've stayed at other places via AMEX and I'm sure I've left credits unspent, but this was the first hotel that suggested that I spend them on something. The next time we return to New York, I'd be happy to return to the Langham too.
