“Pasadena resort wonderfully relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

I've stayed here twice for two week periods while working on a project in Pasadena. Beautiful hotel, well maintained and beautiful rooms, comfortable beds, lovely setting in tree-lined Pasadena. De-stress from hectic LA as soon as you set foot on the property. The Terrace restaurant is so nice with gracious al fresco tables, interesting menus. The Royce restaurant also is excellent, but pricey. Felt like coming home every day.

Room Tip: The breakfast add-on is worth the price.

The Hotel is beautiful and sophisticated. But the pool area is run down and without ambiance. The launch chairs are old without cushions, The restaurants are chic and the food is great. Also has gorgeous flowers throughout the common areas.

The rooms are spacious, super clean and quiet. We had booked 5 rooms. 4 were standard rooms and one was the huntington suite. All parties commented on how their rooms were so comfortable. Some of our guests even stated that they have never slept better. Many parties ordered room service and were equally pleased. Each night we would venture down to the Tap Room for a cocktail and entertainment. Each morning we would meet at The Terrace for breakfast. Both establishments were great on service. The whole feel of The Langham is grand and luxurious. The staff goes out of their way to make sure you feel at home.

I used to travel quite extensively and I actually looked forward to my LA trips so I could stay at this hotel! So, last year when we decided to take the kids to California, I made it a point to book this hotel for our trip and, the Langham did not disappoint! When we checked in, our room was not available so, we got an upgrade to a cottage by the tennis court (highly recommended) and the pampering began right away! I had a fed ex package delivered to me as soon as I checked in and we were offered a bar credit for our room not being available. The hotel just feels like home and you have no choice but to relax and feel like a California native while you are here! The fitness center is amazing and the surrounding neighborhood is great! They also offer a free shuttle to old town Pasadena if you do not feel like driving to dinner. My kids ask me every month, "When are we going back to Pasadena"?! I love this place and I wish I could go back every year but, based on the East Coast, it's a little difficult to get back!

Room Tip: There isn't a bad room in the entire hotel!

We stayed at the Langham over the Easter weekend. It was an easy drive from Orange County, about 40 minutes, easy to find and in a great neighborhood. Our goal was to visit the famous Norton -Simon and Huntington museums, each spectacular in different ways. The hotel is close so this was easy to do. We drove but they provide a shuttle to various areas, including Old Town Pasadena which reminds me a bit of Santa Barbara's center. There is a lot to do in the area: shops, good restaurants, gardens, some historic features all available near by.

The hotel has an atmosphere of an old elegance as it was built by Huntington and had been a Ritz. The halls are wide, décor is elegant, grounds well kept up.

The hotel has a large heated pool, outdoor spa pool and some nice gardens. It was very crowded so as not to get a lounge chair by the pool so I looked for other seating, perhaps a bench where I could sit, dry out and read. I did not find anywhere to sit on the large lawn or in the gardens, surprisingly. The spa was closed for renovation so there was no separate pool for adults.

We noticed that the hotel was filled with families and children, activities planned for the children and wisely we booked the Easter brunch ahead of time. Service even under stress was very good. I did notice a few items amiss in the room but they were easily remedied: safe deposit battery low, sink drained very slow, some towels needed. Small amenities we found to be more than adequate, such as talcum powder supplied in the toiletries, and they provided a robe, soft hangers, a coffee set up, newspapers outside the door in the morning and lots of movies to choose from on the TV schedule. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The Champagne Brunch was served in a large ballroom where they had a jazz band and many buffet areas set up so as to make it easier for the dinners to get to the tables. The selection of meats, eggs, salads, deserts was ample. Service was fast and friendly.

It was a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: We were in Room 534, a large king size bedroom in the older section of the hotel, near the spa brid...

My wife and I can't get away often, but when we have a few days, we come to the Langham. It is a perfect place to feel like you are far from home and pampered in a beautiful, romantic setting. What often impresses me most is the attention to detail, and the friendly service at every level; the pool attendants, food service, front desk, room attendants and we even had a chance to talk to the chef of the Terrace Restaurant; all make you feel welcome and special. I did miss the regular spa, which is closed for renovation, but will look forward to visiting when it reopens this summer. Thanks for a great stay!

Only had the opportunity to stay here one night as I was here on business but was very impressed with the property. It is classic old California..lovely property, rooms and room amenities, food, service. Will definitely return when I have more time to stay a few days and relax.
