Apart from not having my room ready when I arrived - to which I got another (lesser) room that was ready, this hotel had more positives than the recent business hotels I've visited.
Firstly, I'd highlight a very helpful and knowledgeable concierge: don't know his name, but he's a huge big guy - looks like a night club doorman - but an encyclopedia of Boston. other service staff were also helpful.
In a city with many good hotels, the Langham at $335 business rate per night is not inexpesnive but not extortionate either. They gave me free wi fi - although it appears that you get changed when you sign in - and it's efficient.
Good in room amenities and the rooms are well appointed.
Pleasant lobby and and a very dramatic bar called Bond - with friendly bartenders.
It also has a reasonable indoor pool and a nice little gym - I didn't use the spa.
So, overall I was pleased with this hotel - and my readers know that I am a picky, harsh critic on business hotels with inflated reputations.
