“what a lovely building”
Reviewed 19 October 2008

Booked this through Trailfinders we are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers. My sons enjoyed the pool but were frowned upon by people just sat by the pool ( i could understand it if they were messing about but they were in apool swimming and racing one another). However the hotel itself is nice and the room was quiet too and comfortable. It was interesting to read that one reviewer found their ipod missing as we had put 2 mobile phones on charge on the desk in the room, when my son came to use his he found it wasnt there. (his earphones were there of which he kept them together) we pointed this out to security but nothing was found . Perhaps if someone from the hotel happens to read this they could investigate if other items are going 'astray' . I must admit i did prefer the Hilton at Back Bay

  • Liked — the whole building its history and the pool and gym
  • Disliked — the snobbery

Excellent stay! Rooms are spacious and very clean. Beds are extremely comfortable. There is turndown every night. Internet is fast, although there is a daily fee for using it. Cafe Fleuri offers an excellent Sunday Brunch at $55. Room service is fast and food well presented, although a little pricey. Housekeeping staff was very polite. I had to stay in the room most of the day for business and they never disturbed me. Reception was also polite and very helpful with our requests. Location is really nice if you want to spend your day shopping at Macy's or the Faneuil Hall. I would definitely recommend it.

  • Liked — Comfy beds, service
  • Disliked — no views due to the high buildings around

Had actually prepaid for a room at a nearby hotel and when I got in late they told me they were completely sold out and had moved me to the Langham Hotel. The Langham actually seemed nicer than the hotel I was supposed to stay at. The entire staff that I encountered there was all very polite and helpful. In addition, they kept apologizing for the inconvienence when it was not even them that had moved me. The valet parking is a little expensive $42, but lucikly the 1st hotel had compensated me for that. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The location was good, many sites Boston Commons, Fanieul Hall and others were within 10 minute walk. i would definitely stay there again or recommend to someone.

Comfortable well furnished rooms and one of the quietest hotel rooms I have stayed in.

Front desk staff were friendly and helpful as were the bar and restaurant staff. The two front door men were exceptional, always happy and helpful even in the dreadful weather Boston experienced during the whole 4 days.

A well run hotel with pleasant helpful staff, a lot of whom have worked at the hotel for many years - always the sign of a good hotel.
Boston is not one of my favourite city's but the Langham made it enjoyable.

  • Liked — Good furnishings and staff
  • Disliked — As is becoming usual for US hotels, no preference to hotel guests in booking a table for dinner

We stayed at the Langham in Boston and it was great! The staff was friendly and very helpful (especially the concierge!) and their new spa was so relaxing! The hotel used to be the old Federal Reserve Bank building so it was pretty cool to be staying in such a historical hotel. I definitely recommend their chocolate bar on Saturdays, definitely worth the calories!!!

good Hotel, too overpriced though. Room was nice (I got a suite due to an overbooking problem) , staff was nice but too bad they don't have wi fi connection in the rooms.

Location is good, close to attractions.

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.
