“nice hotel, nice staff”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

My family and my friend's had a trip in Boston in Memorial Day weekend, and we stayed Langham for 3 days. The hotel is clean, spacious and staff is friendly and helpful. They always smile.

The day we checked in was also my birthday so we were upgrade to the room with king-sized bed and this room is spacious. My friend was staying the room with queen-sized bed, however, their room was at 7-floor so they had a good view of city. They were also happy to stay in that room.

We all had a good time there and hope we can visit this city again soon.

I don't really know why Im doing this review: this hotel does not need a recommendation from anyone.
Im sure its reputation goes before it.
As you will know from my other reviews, Im not that easy to please.
Try as I might, I could not find anything negative to say.
From the moment we turned up in pouring rain, when we were met with a commissionaire wielding a large umbrella, who took care of our car and luggage whilst we were checking in, to the way they looked after our luggage on the last day after check out as we had a late flight, and even offered the services in the spa for us to freshen up, everything was excellent.
The hotel itself is a converted bank, and many of the old features have been retained, but the whole ambience is one of quiet opulence, but with an accent on SERVICE.
Our room was lovely, overlooking a little park. We had a locked minibar, and a 'pantry' of goodies like nuts and chocolate. The coffee machine made a lovely cup of tea (and uniquely, there was tea on the tray) AND there was a nice mug AND A METAL TEASPOON as opposed to the bits of plastic for stirring that we had grown used to.
The bed linen was elegant, the fluffy bath robes very fluffy, the toiletries straight from the hotel spa.
The quality of furniture in the room and maintenance of it and the furnishings and paintwork was excellent, and the standard of cleanliness was sublime.
I did look for a negative, but honestly couldn't find one!
Go there!

Room Tip: Our room was on the park side, the low 400s, and the view was nice.

My first impression upon walking into the lobby was cold, stark and impersonal. Off putting.

But our room was fabulous! Everything was pretty and in order, including the robes and slippers.

I see where others have bragged on the service so maybe we were just there at the wrong time. The girl who waited on us for lunch in the lobby restaurant must have been having a very bad day because she was hardly civil to us. She never smiled and we could hardly hear her. Clearly she did not want to be there. Again – off putting.

We had just spent 4 days at a Maine B&B where we had generous amounts of free homemade goodies so imagine my shock and surprise to see a $6 price tag on a bottle of water in the room.

I’ve stayed in large city hotels many times and I realize they nickel and dime you. It’s one thing to charge $5.75 for a little bottle of gingerale from the mini bar but it’s just rude to charge $6 for water. I'm sorry, but come on!

Located right in the business district this is a great choice for business travelers. I stayed there for a night and the room was excellent. The staff at the lobby (from the concierge to the bell boy) were very helpful. This hotel is very close to plenty of eateries and accessible via public transportation.

The only annoying thing was that they stocked the room with FIJI water - $6 a pop. How many people would want to support global warming by paying a few extra bucks for a bottle of water flown from the other side of the globe?

The hotel is located in the old Federal Reserve building in Boston. It has a beautifully done interior and is very well kept. The room was adequate but a bit noisy for a top tier hotel. The staff was very courteous and attentive. Overall a good place to stay.

I have stayed at a lot of hotels over the years, and many are fun, trendy, comfortable, or stylish Some strive to be and never make it. But the Langham is different. It is a true 5 star experience, not because of what it looks like, but because of the outstanding service. On the outside, the Langham is a little pricey and a little old fashioned--not run down, just not that funky/edgy boutique thing so many hotels are going for these days. I got great deal for a Friday night and I was not disappointed. Very comfortable rooms, excellent service, friendly staff, and something genuine about the friendliness, too. They have a nice spa, and are on Boston's business district, but only a few blocks from tourist destinations. Fun, Asian toiletries ( I think they are owned by an Asian firm), and a champagne bar. My only complaint is that you can't rent movies; only cable. But that's nothing compared to the service.

Room Tip: Join the rewards program; you might get upgraded.

Very nice hotel that is conveniently located if you have business in the financial district. The pillows were my biggest complaint. They were small and flat - needless to say, no sleep! The Bond Bar is beautiful. It is the old Federal Reserve Bank. Very chic.

Be prepared, this hotel is expensive!
