I’ve stayed at most of the luxury hotels in London and wanted to give the Langham a try. The lobby is beautiful and hotel Staff could not have been be nicer from the doorman to the front desk, Concierge and housekeeping, everyone was accommodating and always had a smile on their face. |I give a shout out to Sophia at the front desk the evening of the 11th when I arrived, who saw it was my birthday and immediately provided lovely amenities to the room and upgraded me. Same for the Greek gentleman in the artesian bar who knew it was my birthday on Friday evening and provided a small cake with a candle for me and my guests, again I say the whole staff were wonderful. |The downside? I ordered in room dining for my late night arrival, room, service breakfast and breakfast in the Palm Court. The food needs to be improved significantly. Nothing special, nothing great. |The room was nothing special for the grade, the furniture seem to be old and reused pre-renovation. The bathroom shower had limited water pressure. |The location is wonderful, near Piccadilly, Region St., Oxford Street the tube. Wonderful location. |The only caveat was the food in the hotel needs to be improved significantly.

We have stayed at the Langham on quite a few occasions over the past few years. It is our automatic go to when we visit London. The reason i say this is because the Hotel is top class. From the moment you arrive and welcomed by the front of house porter to checking in at reception you already are made to feel special. The rooms are classy maid service as good as anywhere. We had afternoon tea, along with the sandwiches, cakes and champagne very good and the service excellent. We experienced their cocktail bar which is a lovely experience and their bar food very different and tasty it has a nice vibe. We also had a spa treatment, again treated special and the massage was as good as we have had elsewhere and we have had many at various places. One evening we decided to eat in room and this service was a nice touch, the food excellent and they provided everything to support the food including tooth picks and nice condiments.
