We recently had a 4 night stay at the Langham Place, Fifth Avenue.
It's a very modern and stylish hotel which has great appeal when you first arrive on the very busy Fifth Avenue.
The reception staff very helpful and we received a free upgrade upon check in after I requested this. We had an empire corner suite which was like a very spacious 1 bedroom apartment for NY standards.
When you first enter the room it is rather dark and unlit due to all the wood panelling. There is a separate lounge, separate bedroom and bathroom. Firstly the separate lounge was useful as it had a desk and a spacious lounge and TV. The lounge was a bit dirty and grotty so was not keen on sitting down on it.
The bed was excellent and very soft and cozy but very low to the ground. Good use of electronic blinds but the lighting in the room was very poor. Also another desk in the room which for us is so helpful as we both work remotely on laptops every day and night from the room. Make sure you request a higher floor as you will not hear the traffic. The view was just ok - nothing special even in a corner room and with the empire state building directly in front of you..
The bathroom extremely clean and spacious and the skincare range was lovely.
There is plenty of cupboard and draw space with a semi walk in robe to unpack if staying a few days.
Overall a very clean and pleasant stay but felt it lacked atmosphere particularly the décor of the rooms. I would rather a more boutique hotel with softer, plusher interiors. Also the hotel's bar is a bit cold and boring so not very enthusiastic about even having a drink late upon arrival on our first night.
