I stayed here many years ago and so far very little has changed.
House keeping is very good with an excellent turn down.
The Chinese bathroom products are very poor, and the water pressure to the huge bath miserable.
Newspapers in the comfortable lounge but delivery was not offered at check in.
The hotel is used for many meetings so public areas are often taken over at guest expense.
The big draw back is that the bedroom windows onto the passing traffic and building works are not sound proofed in any way. Not even well sealed. This also lets in the heat.
Langham club (the 1865) offers little.
At least there is usually a doorman.
The hotel is not attractive on the outside and is only well placed for the "Rocks" area really.
The pool is excellent but the changing room with ? a hundred lockers has only room for two people at a time and was not clean enough.
We ate no meals as there are plenty of places near by.
