I returned to the Langham for an overnight stay, in one of the beautiful Club Corner Spa Suite rooms (Room 2004), after an absence of a couple of years and can honestly say it was a delightful reunion!
The Langham, Melbourne, is a lush hotel that has a beautiful - almost regal - feel, without any pretentiousness, and staff that are clearly happy and friendly. From the moment I arrived on Thurs (27 Sep), when a very cheerful doorman greeted me, to the moment I left, when one of the bell staff helped me load my luggage into my car, I was treated as a super-star (and judging from the friendly interchanges I noted in the Langham Lounge, particularly with one family who had obviously been there a couple of days, I wasn't the only one).
The room was fabulous, beautiful views of the Yarra and Federation Square, super comfy bed, intelligent tech support (loved the clever multi-media interface in main room - just ready to plug laptop, iPad into), deluxe bathroom with top notch toiletries, dual showers and big oval spa bath, and what has to be the greatest slippers ever (deluxe version, especially provided to Club guests) plus lovely complementary chocolate frogs to snack on!
Had room service for brekkie, arrived lovely and hot, with friendly waiter who set it all up for me before cheerfully wishing me a good morning (staff at this hotel are just great, plus love the uniforms the ladies get to wear - very stylish). Couldn't finish it all, they were quite generous with portions.
Can definitely recommend visiting Chuan Spa, therapists are lovely (Caroline was amazing, really put me at ease and had me on Cloud 9 - so relaxing!) and facilities are excellent (steam room a fantastic way to loosen everything up). You will be smiling before you leave!
All in all, not hard to see why Melbournians love this grand dame - I look forward to visiting her again.
