The Langham Hotel, Melbourne (Formerly the Sheridan Towers) is one of the top class hotels in Melbourne and possible the best value for money. The cost of the stay is clearly good value frm the moment you arrive at the hotel, with staff on hand at the entrance to handle your luggage this is where you begin to feel all your troubles float away. Checking into reception is quick and simple, a name and two words and you are checked in and if it is a first time stay the simple and friendly directions are easy to follow and will have you relaxing in your room in no time at all. Once you are in your room your every need is only a phone call away, with quick and efficient room service you needn't worry about even having to scratch yourself. The rooms, even at the most basic have what is probably two to three key highlights, the bed, the bath and the view. A room that host a bed roomy enough for five people and comfortable enough that even the princess wouldn't feel jagged rocks underneath, the bath is one of rare logical design, deep enough so that you may submerge your entire body into the warmth of the water and not have to twist yourself up like a contortionist. The view from the room is something to behold, with the hotel on the banks of the Yarra the view shows the Melbourne city skyline in a beauty I've never actually appreciated before. When you are finally ready to leave the luxuries of your room the Langham is in THE prime location of Melbourne 5 minutes walk from the Crown Casino, you can taking a drink at the pub, see a movie at the Gold class Village cinemas or simply indulge n some gaming pleasure. Even closer than Crown is the Melbourne CBD where you can experience all the nightlife the wonderful city has to offer. Whether your pleasure is sports, fine dining, clubbing or more adult desires it is all at your beacon call. Finally if you would rather stay in the best restaurant in town is just down the elevator at the Melba restaurant. While A La Carte is an option you would be insane to go past the buffet which caters for any desire. With stations serving a range of specialties such as sushi, Indian, stir-fry, pasta, roast, sea food, Asian cuisines and an impeccable desert bar all of your desires are met at once. My personal favourites would have to be the custom made naan bread, Peking duck and the chocolate fondue fountain. The Langham is by far the highest class and best value hotel of its kind in Melbourne but don’t trust me, you HAVE to try it yourself.
