The Langham is one of London’s most celebrated hotels. It is located on Regent Street, seconds away from fabulous flagship stores and beautiful boutiques.
Grandiose and imposing, the entrance filled me with excitement. I had heard ravishing rumours about this English institution but never visited before. On this calm Sunday night business guests were systematically checking in ready for big meetings the following morning, while leisure guests and tourists checked out, sad to be ending their sojourn. We happily handed over our heavy bags and went straight to the renowned cocktail bar to sample the concoctions.
Inside, the Langham is very civilised – visitors mill around in smart suits and stylish outfits. Our lavishly decorated suite was sumptuous and stunning, I spent at least ten minutes exploring every feature and marvelling at the fine detailing. The muted pink and cream traditional décor is uniform throughout the hotel and is elegant and attractive. Decorative artwork adds flourish and pattern to the walls, whilst the carpet bears an ornate design. The formal desk is business-like though the writing equipment is very floral!
The bathroom was regal and indulgent, marble everywhere polished and glinting in the light. There was a huge bath to soak and a powerful shower for a quick cleanse. I loved the Chuan Spa toiletries which are made specially for the hotel.
Thoughtful touches could be noticed elsewhere in the room too: fruit, macaroons and flowers all for our enjoyment. Everything is pretty and immaculate, but the Langham also ensure service and quality is of the highest quality. The bed was huge and blissfully comfortable and the towels soft enough to cuddle.
Breakfast is served downstairs, white tablecloths and fine cutlery dress the tables, small bunches of pink roses adding colour. Croissants were flaky and buttery and the coffee suitably strong. I was happy to stick to the buffet array though the cooked breakfasts smelt delicious as they wafted past to nearby tables.
Memorable and magnificent… the Langham is traditional but trendy, the management obviously feel it is their duty to provide every guest with the most luxurious stay London has to offer.
