“An elegant hotel”
Reviewed 15 August 2008

We stayed at the Langham on the recommendation of our Trailfinders agent. They had a package of free room upgrade and four nights for the price of three. The hotel is situated in the financial district of Boston which meant the area was very quiet over the weekend. The Fanueil Market and Quincy Market were only a ten minute walk away as was the closest subway and Boston Common.The more popular and lively area of Back Bay was a ten minute subway trip away. The hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly. Our travelling companions were given a room initially without an outlook and when they asked for a change this was done without any issues. The beds were very comfortable and linen was changed every day if requested. We only ate in the bar area but the food was excellent if in the medium plus price range,
The pool is quite small with a jacuzzi.
I would recomment this hotel more for older couples although there were a couple of honeymooners. It also seemed to have a fair number of business residents.

Stay In the Langham for 4 nights in July, it was super. We were checked in easily and our room was really clean and tidy. We did, however,eat breakfast in the hotel one morning and it cost us $70!!! It was rather expensive for what we recieved.

There was a turn down service every night and chocolate were left our our pillows. There is a gym and pool, although the pool was very cold, the gym was lovely. The concierge is extremely helpful.

The Langham is an ideal place to stay as it is close to all the local shops, bars etc but it is very quiet.

Had a two night stay in this great hotel.

Location : in financial district, only a 2min walk away from the historical centre. Quiet neighbourhood.
Staff was very friendly and helpfull.
Room was large, luxurious and very clean.
Breakfast very good but also very expensive in my opinion.
I appreciated the very nice pool and Jacuzzi.
Last but not least : the hotel has a distinctive personal touch and ambiance, something that most 5*-hotelchains completely lack.

We really enjoyed our three night stay in Boston. The hotel is very good and, whilst I appreciate its position in the financial district means it is rather quiet, it is so easy to walk to everywhere. The room was lovely. Our first morning was a Sunday and the buffet breakfast was good albeit with a limited choice. However, after that the breakfast was al a carte - very unusual in a hotel nowadays. It was still good food but it does make it slow, so if you are in hurry, I'd recommend going somewhere else. We would have had nothing but praise if it hadn't been for the Reception staff. When we checked in we were politely, but disinterestedly, greeted. On leaving we pointed out that we had not been charged for the first breakfast. The clerk said he couldn't add it on 'now ' - as if it had been our fault, and then told us we'd 'got away with it'. I wish I could say he was joking about it but he wasn't. After that,he didn't even bother to say goodbye let alone 'Have a nice day'. That said, the Vietnamese porter was lovely and the Restaurant staff were very pleasant.

Overall Boston is a lovely city to visit.

My husband and I traveled to Boston to celebrate my fortieth birthday. We stayed at the Langham for two of our five nights (the other three were at the Intercontinental). I booked the room through Hotwire for $154 per night - a SUPER deal for this wonderful hotel. I did research several hotels for this trip and chose the two listed because my husband and I have very different tastes. I like the smaller, more personal, "classic" hotels while he likes the larger, more contemporary . My favorite of the two was the Langham, especially with the deal we got. Our room was by the elevator, but we did not hear any noise at all. The room was a bit smaller than our room at the Intercontinental, but it was nice. The towels are amazing (HUGE and plush), and the toiletries were great. We had breakfast in the restaurant and it was good, although a bit pricey. The concierge was helpful in giving us three good restaurant choices nearby, and we took his advice and enjoyed our meal. The doorman hailed us a cab since it was raining. We had a GREAT experience and would definitely go there again.

  • Liked — The towels and the clean up and turn down services.

I found this hotel to be in a very good location, yes it's in the financial district, but the markets and Faniuel Hall were a 2 minute walk away and Boston Common and downtown Boston weren't too far either.

The rooms were a nice size and had everything you would need for a comfortable stay. Bathroom was lovely. Very clean hotel.

We didn't see many other guests while we were here, but that's not necessarily a bad thing!

The concierge and prorter were both very helpful and the front desk staff polite and obligling too.

We had breakfast here one day that came to a staggering $75! But we knew the prices before we ordered so can't say we didn't know.

  • Liked — The fact it was 4 star!
  • Disliked — If anything it was a little sterile

My husband I went here for a special evening out on the town. Upon arrival we were told we had a beautiful corner room overlooking the park. The room was quite nice and it was in fact facing the park. However, in the morning I noticed some little worm type bugs crawling around the bathroom floor, many of them disappeared under the door onto the carpet outside of the door - this just grossed me out so we checked out early. We left our car with the valet the evening before and when we got our car in the morning, we found that our ipod had disappeared from the vehicle. Overall the staff was not very helpful and/or with the room situation. I honestly can say that I will not stay at this hotel in the city again. There are many we will choose first like The Liberty, InterContinental, etc. The Langham is in a great location to walk to the Faneuil Hall and the Waterfront. I also found the lobby furniture to be in pretty rough shape, it really could use a new look.
