I think it is fair to say that hotels is Australia generally fall behind standards elsewhere in the world. In my experience travelling around Australia, only Sydney and Melbourne offer truly high class hotels and the Langham is up amongst the best.
On checking in we were informed that we had been upgraded to a high floor, not sure why this is considered an upgrade but the room was spacious and well furnished with a large bathroom with separate shower. The bathroom soaps and shampoos were top quality as were the complimentary selection of coffees and teas available. The bed was superbly comfortable with top quality bedding and this made for a great nights sleep.
For dining I would also recommend the buffet, which for me is not a normal selection option as I prefer a la carte. However it is not cheap at over $60 but the quality is reflected in the price and it was enormously popular given the number of people dining there.
My only gripe is the cost of Internet, I think it was $40 for two days which compared to free wife normally available elsewhere in the world a scandalous extra, surely in this day and age they could do better.
Overall a great hotel in an excellent location.
