Langham Hotel 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). Crystal chandeliers light the hallways and jewel-tone fabrics swath just-updated guest rooms—the decor isn't exactly daring, but it is impeccable and elegant. Suites have espresso machines, with regular coffee makers in others, and all rooms feature alarm clocks with iPod/iPhone docks. It's a bustling scene at Bond, the Langham's in-house restaurant-bar, which attracts dressed-to-the-nines partygoers. 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 and special deals at the Chuan Body + Soul spa. Use a nearby public parking lot, where rates are cheaper on weekends.

    Langham Hotel Review

    We stayed here for a weekend. It was a special birthday gift from our children. We also participated in the Chocolate Buffet, something not to be missed. The rooms were very nicely decorated; the amenities were nice. We also had the breakfast buffet. It was a special weekend at a special place.
