The elegance starts from the moment you enter the building. That gorgeous staircase. It has fascinated me every time we visit the Langham. Checkin was a breeze and not at all a bother in any way. Smiling faces greeting you and making small talk.
The room we had is what they refer to as Club Terrace. Just stunning. Everything was just so elegant and comfortable and inviting in everyway. It was on the 21st floor with a river view and a terrace with outdoor furniture (2 comfy deck chairs, a table and 2 chairs). The view became more and more romantic as the sun set and the buildings lit up. A glass of wine sitting out on the terrace with your favourite loved one and you don't need much more. But there is loads more. The bed, the pillows the doona, it's all so comfortable. There is a two seater couch, a desk, a comfy reading chair and a plasma television. The bathroom is stunning and very well equiped with anything you may require and also expect to find in an establishment such as the Langham (comb set, toothbrush & toothpaste, nail care kit etc). You could seriously spend the whole day/night in the room.
During the afternoon you are welcomed to visit the 24th floor and have afternoon tea in the Langham Club. The staff are so attentive it's just about too hard to describe in words. You just feel like you are the only one there. There is a section with table & chairs (to your left) and a snuggly quieter section with tub chairs, a television etc to your right. The tea and coffee is served to you by staff and it is help yourself sandwiches, pastries, scones and too many other items to mention. Then of course you can return to the Langham Club in the evening and have pre dinner drinks and nibbles. Try to keep track of what you're eating/drinking because over indulging happens quickly, and before you've even realised you have returned to the help yourself to nibbles (hot & cold) time & time again. All so delicious.
The locality of the hotel is probably another reason why we go back time and time again. The walks along the river right up to the other end where the casino precinct is. The closeness of all the wonderful stores in Melbourne. 5 minutes walk to the gardens. 2 minutes to Hamer Hall. 2 minutes to tram or train.
I have nothing negative to say. The perfect weekend in a perfect, elegant, romantic spot.
