Fodor's Review

This 1922 Renaissance Revival landmark (the former Federal Reserve Building) strikes an admirable balance between historic, old-world charm and sleek, modern appointments. Historic photographs and paintings (including two huge N.W. Wyeth works commissioned by the Federal Reserve) adorn many walls; the Governor's Room has a large collection of historic Boston-area maps on loan from the Boston Public Library. Out front sits a bright pink London taxi, made available to guests for in-town jaunts (but no rides to the airport). Jewel-tone fabrics swath recently updated guest rooms—the decor isn't exactly daring, but it is impeccable and elegant. Suites have espresso machines, with regular coffeemakers in others, and all rooms feature alarm clocks with iPod/iPhone docks. At Bond, the Langham's in-house restaurant-bar, there's a lounge-y vibe for the well-dressed clientele, who knock back beverages from an extensive wine and champagne list. While the Post Office Square spot is all business during the week (including the who's-who power breakfast and lunch crowds at Café Fleuri), families and couples drop in on weekends for much lower room rates. Guests enjoy special deals at the Chuan Body + Soul spa. Use a nearby public parking lot, where rates are cheaper on weekends.
