We had a wonderful weekend away at the Langham, Melbourne Hotel. Like the title suggests...why stay any where else. This is the best of all 5 star hotels in Melbourne and we have been to quite a few. Langham staff had 5 star service all round. From booking and reception staff through to the restaurant staff; there was always a friendly smile where ever you go and the staff were very down to earth and easy to talk too.
We booked the Teddy Bear package for a special occasion. This included overnight accommodation for two, full buffet breakfast for two in the Melba Restaurant (huge variety; it even had gluten-free breakfast items), access to the health club and wellness centre including use of gymnasium, conservatory covered pool and jacuzzi, a Langham Melbourne Benjamin bear, two hot chocolates in ARIA bar, valet parking and late check out of 2pm. The very elegant and comfortable classic room (room size: 32m²) included king Bed, beautiful spacious marble bathroom with a separate shower and bath, Internet access, cable and satellite TV and in-room safe. The bathroom complimentary products/items were handy as there was quite a variety... toothbrush and paste for two, a sewing kit, comb, razor and shaving cream along with the usual shampoo/body wash/lotions etc.
We had a light lunch of a cheese platter and beverages in the Aria bar, before heading off to the seafood buffet dinner on Saturday night. The very talented pianist played beautiful music right through the afternoon. Great atmosphere! The restaurant had lovely city views and the large variety of food was amazing from Indian, sushi, noodles and the list goes on...the oysters were just so fresh and tasty too. Service very prompt and professional. When we arrived back to our room after dinner, we found we had Turn-Down Service; thats when we received our cute teddy bear on our bed, teddy bear chocolates and 2 bottles of water on the bed side tables and a little pink teddy bear soap in the bathroom. Since we were celebration a special occasion a platter of petite cakes where waiting in our room too.
Its these little touches that you find around your hotel room that make it that extra bit special and different from the rest. Even complimentary slippers (in your room) and a bottle of water waiting in your car after your check out, from the valet parking staff.
Need to ask any questions regarding your future stay at the Langham don't hesitate to ask, I'll try and answer them for you, but hopefully like us, you won't be disappointed.
