Decided to spend a 'weekend away' locally for a change and booked the Langham for our anniversary. Was fun being a 'tourist' in your own city and we enjoyed the proximity to Southbank and riverfront setting. Overall a pleasant experience with a couple of exceptions:
- Waited an hour for our room to be made up despite arriving at designated check-in time. Not a huge deal as we enjoyed a walk outside and complimentary drink in the bar.
- Room itself was just under what we expected (size and fit-out) despite booking a king corner room. But we are fussy.
- Pool/spa/deck area could do with a renovation. We didn't find it enticing enough to use.
On the plus side:
- Gorgeous day/night city and river views from our floor 10 room.
- Loved having choccies and champagne brought up to our room.
- Very comfortable bed!
- Beautiful lobby, restaurant areas with amazing breakfast selection.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend, but for a luxury experience in Melbourne, also consider the Park Hyatt as a more extravagant and modern hotel (Langham decor is more traditional, old-style, lovely if you like that feel).

The Location of this hotel is the best , Its on the southbank ( an area on the yarra river) , It is only a 2 minute walk to the centre of melbourne and Federation square but also next to the bars and restaurants of the southbank (relaxed lively area on the river).
The rooms are large , we had a corner room with great views of both the city and the river , the blissful beds are so comfy but overall I feel the rooms will need to be refurbished soon as they as starting to look a little dated especailly for the money .
The hotel has only 1 bar and 1 restaurant which i feel is not enough choice for this calibre of hotel ,
The Aria bar area is nice but check what is on offer in the happy hour before you order as we had a choice of 1 white wine and 1 brand of beer only , at a reduced rate .
The Melba restaurant is very big and noisy and feel like a canteen , it serves both buffet and al a carte menu 's , we chose to sit in a quiet spot in the bar as the restaurant was aweful, The A la carte food we ordered, 2 fillet steaks was amazing but the service was very lackluster as they were more interested in setting tables for the next morning as it was late , only 9pm than serving us. What a shame as the food was brilliant !!
The pool area is a little odd , a tiny indoor pool with a tarmac terrace for sunbathing out side . not appealing !! Glad we had no sun.
Overall a good hotel with an excellent location but I feel a little pricey for the facilites that it offers.

This hotel is worth every cent. Have spent time here for work and for a holiday and I have nothing but praise for every aspect of the Langham.

Spend the money - business services, staff, rooms, food, and views are all fantastic.

Too easy when it comes to book a room in Melbourne - this place is always our first choice.

A supposedly luxury hotel which isn't really worth the room rate.

I stayed here one night after a long overnight flight from Europe. The very best thing was the ability to check into the room at 09:00 AM. Much appreciated.

The view from the bedroom across to the CBC was great, but the room & bathroom were not particularly large for the price paid.

The breakfast buffet was good, but the dinner buffet less so. Both are very overpriced.

The entrance hall is OTT marble & 'water features'. However the bed was good and the room quiet.

The hotel location is also good. You can wander across to Federation Square and the extensive parks beside the Yarra in a few minutes.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel, but at the price paid it really isn't that good value for money.
