I don't often give perfect marks but this hotel truly blew me away. I can't say enough good things.
Lets start with the staff who were utterly friendly and helpful at all times. The foreign general manager who was greeting guests was great and couldn't do enough for us
The rooms were simply amazing. Clearly a relatively new refurb. I loved the fact they don't skimp on water. There were free bottles everywhere. Loved that they didn't charge for basic wifi (pet peeve!). Little details like having an international plug next to the bedside (why or why do all hotels not have this its so annoying) was refreshing.
Also the shower. Powerful, a rain shower head the size or a small car. Never experienced anything like it. AND Toto bathroom ware (love!).
The gym was hands down the best gym I have ever used in a hotel and would rank up there even as a city gym. It was fully kitted out with Technogym equipment and even had a seperate weights room! Why can't more hotels learn from this. The gym was nicely busy and everyone left smiling.
Overall great job Langham, I will definitely be back and now curious as to what other cities they are in. If this is anything to go by it will take pride of place as my second favorite chain after W hotels.
