Stayed here for a wedding where the reception was held in the Langham. This made things very convenient. It also has a great location across the footbridge to the CBD and close to Southbank precinct restaurants and bars. The staff were friendly enough but did not go out of their way like at other places I have stayed.
The room I stayed in was a river view. The view was nice and the room clean. Very classic style with a bit of grand old world charm. However, I must say the rooms are rather small. I have stayed in other 5 star hotels in Melbourne, and these felt the most cramped and smallest. Yes, the bathroom was marble, but with a pokey and dark shower and just a standard sized bathtub. If you're going to do that, I feel it's better to have just a shower that is of a good size rather than trying to include both. The bathroom amenities were plentiful, but again, were not of great quality. Maybe I've been spoilt and have overseas places in mind which i've visited, but even comparing to other places in Melbourne, I would not place this hotel above them. I would rather stay at the Park Hyatt or Crown Metropol again before I stay here.
I also included buffet breakfast daily with my booking at an extra $40/night. It certainly is not worth that. It was nothing spectacular. At a place like this, I would expect touches like house made baked beans and hash browns. These seemed to be straight from the can or packet!
Overall not bad, but I probably wouldn't waste my money to stay here again!
