“Excelled again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We chose the Langham based on past experience in Hong Kong but this time booked a Club room. It is impossibe to fault this hotel, the rooms, the location and in particular the staff. From breakfast in the morning until the drinks in the lounge in the evening everything went smoothly and the staff were very willing to help with any questions.
We were welcomed at the door and escorted to reception, our luggage arrived promptly and as there were flowers waiting for me, a vase was promptly delivered and the flowers arranged. Our visit just got better and better after that.
If there is a Langham Hotel where we are travelling that is where we will be staying. There is no alternative.

Room Tip: Choose a Club room, it is worth the extra.

I've lost count of how many times I've stayed here for meetings/conferences and it has always been fabulous. It has a great location, sometimes with a great view of the river/city. Rooms are spacious, spotless and well-appointed. Bathroom amenities top shelf. Smaller touches like robes and slippers are not forgotten. As for the bed - it's luxurious and helps to achieve a good night sleep. Breakfasts are fabulous - I maintain it is one of the best buffets in Melbourne. The catering at the meetings is always great as well.

I never hesitate to book my accommodation here, when given the opportunity.

Room Tip: I think they're all good, but further from the lift is quieter.

My husband and I cannot praise the staff and service at the Langham highly enough. Genuine, not "canned" politeness. Staff obviously take pride in their work and make you feel as if you are among friends during your stay. They actually take a personal interest in you. Subati on Level 24 sang me an impromptu Happy Birthday busy as she was during breakfast one day, but we have nothing but praise for the staff generally and would not stay anywhere else. The suites are immaculately clean with pristine, luxurious bed and pillows, bathroom lined with marble with real fossils!, and a perfect location. What more can we say!!

The location is excellent and the view of Melbourne from the hotel of a night is breathtaking. I often take interstate visitors to the restaurant and the staff are terrific. I would recommend The Langham to anyone.

We often stay at the Langham in Melbourne and our latest was a 1 night for a quickie (trip that is!) We enjoyed the Club and a buffet dinner in Melbas (the laksa is to die for). Langham Melbourne always does a great job, I love the service you get and the smell of the hotel (odd I know!) Best thing about this stay was the chocolate tuxedo strawberries in the Club at afternoon tea, yum and so cute!

Room Tip: Doubles are large enough for 3 (2 adults and 1 child), the river view are the best. Always ask for...

Where ever we are on our trips we try and stay at Langhams, doesnt matter if its Hong Kong or Beijing we always book at Langhams.

As ususal the hotel came up to our expectations.

Staff are always polite and respectful.

I must make a special mention of Joshua - in the club lounge. I would have him as my "mans man" or butler. He made breakfast both pleasant and an experience. He his a top man that the management should reward.

Stay there if you can and enjoy a central location that you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: Book a club room
