Writing this review from the comfort of my bed in the executive suite room at the Langham while a Typhoon is passing through the area.
Location - excellent and one of the main reason that I chose the Langham. A block away from Harbour City / Ocean Terminal and the 1881 shopping complex. Taxi from the airport cost us HKD 240 inc all the tollway and luggage charges and only took around 30 minutes. I
Lobby - old style dimly lit and look a bit dated when compared to the other newer hotels in Hong Kong. I have stayed at most of the 5 star hotels here.
Room - booked the "executive suite" and we got room 424 which is on the 4th floor and we can constantly hear cars on the street but the windows muffled out about 80% of the noise. If you're a light sleeper ask for high floors like from the 11th floor upward as we could not hear anything from the club lounge up there. Again the room looked a bit dated but everything works and is very clean. Bathroom is a bit small and the hotel's picture made it look much larger. Beds (twin) and sheets are very nice! Lots of amenities like Nespresso coffee maker, hot water kettle etc.
Housekeeping - very good and efficient. Toiletries, towels, writing papers, pen etc are constantly replaced and our room is kept very clean all day.
Club Lounge - small but nicely decorated with EXCELLENT food and drinks offered! Very good spread for breakfast and the evening cocktails and snacks are the best I have seen! For the evening cocktail hours snacks included Balik cut smoke salmon, mini Wagu beef sandwiches, hand carved Parma ham etc. Drinks - free flow Veuve Clicquot champagne during our stay and served until 11 PM (for drinks). Very generous!
Summary - if this is your first time to Hong Kong and you want a harbour view then stay somewhere else. If you want an OK room, good location and a great club lounge with outstanding champagne then stay at The Langham!
