“Beautiful Property with Comfortable Rooms”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

The hotel is very large for a 5 star (a former Ritz) but tries hard to provide that level of service. The location in the best neighborhood in Pasadena is both beautiful and quiet. Take a walk and admire the 1900 era mansions. The room was comfortable and quiet with excellent housekeeping. Because of the size of the hotel it takes a bit of an army to check people in and out and get the cars parked and ready. It is ideal for weddings or corporate events with the number of reception rooms and the gardens. Also good for children with a nice pool area and for tennis players.

Pros: Huge and beautiful property with quiet rooms, good service and exceptional location. Close to old Pasadena and downtown Pasadena with shuttle service to both.

Cons: Dated bathroom with Walmart quality toilette. Chairs should have been reupholstered 20 years ago. Expect to pay $25 per night for valet parking which cannot easily be avoided. Wifi worked but at check-out they tried to charge me for free wifi until I objected. Make sure you have GPS to find it. The breakfast area was a bit over-run in the morning.

Overall: Would recommend but not a 5 star without some further upgrades and probably just too big, too family oriented and too commercial event driven to offer 5 start service and ambiance. Still a do again.

Room Tip: Higher floors away from the lobby, or if with children around the pool area.

The Langham is a beautiful and elegant hotel furnished sumptuously and from the moment you drive up to the entrance you are met by efficient and courteous staff who provide valet parking. Check in into the beautiful reception was warm and friendly with our luggage being delivered to the room very quickly by a member of staff who explained how everything worked in our room which was on the 5th floor and very quiet with a stunning view. Bed was very comfortable with quality bed linen which was changed every day. The shower was in the bath so not walk in. Quality towels changed twice a day. On arrival as it was late we chose to eat in The Tap bar which was informal and the food was good. Breakfast was served on the terrace by the pool which is a lovely setting, however I would point out that if you order the continental breakfast be specific as the croissants are chosen for you so if you prefer plain rather than chocolate you had better ask for plain same with the pastry that is served. After the first morning we took the shuttle bus into Old Pasadena and had breakfast there which was a fraction of the price and very good. The service around the pool was very good and lunch could be served around the pool or on the Terrace. The fruit platter was excellant and one was more than enough for two. The pool area was suitable for sun lovers as well as those that like shade all in all very relaxing. An added bonus to this establishment is the beautiful grounds which include the Japanese Garden, also a secluded spot with hot tub, and lawned areas, all of which are kept in immaculate condition. The level of service is exceptional and we have to mention the concierge Geoff who took the service to a whole new level. Thank you we had a wonderful stay and look forward to returning next year.

The Langham is a very nice hotel, in lovely surroundings.
We stayed in a club level room, which was well worth the extra money. The staff in the club lounge were absolutely wonderful. All were just so friendly and accommodating......nothing was too much trouble for them.
They are a credit to the hotel. And all the amenities in the lounge were just superb.
The room was lovely, and clean, as we're all areas of the hotel.
Definitely hope to return one day.

We stayed on the club level. This was a wonderful and relaxing experience! The food was gourmet, and the service was white glove. We come once each year for a Dodger game, and this hotel is by far the best.

Stay here and Stay on the Club Level!

The Langham has the feel of a high-end resort, from the moment you drive into the elegant entrance till the time you depart. This hotel is located in a beautiful residential area of Pasadena yet is still convenient to all that Pasadena has to offer. Valet parking is your only choice here, and it well fits the mood of the property. The lobby was decorated with the most amazing selection of orchid blooms that I had ever seen, and it was changed out during the time that we visited, making it all the more dramatic. Staff are very attentive and friendly. The rooms themselves are located mostly in the oldest part of the complex. They are not cookie-cutter shapes, but rather a variety of shapes, with nice windows and views. I thought the furnishings were a little worn, and the room was not set up so that two people could sit comfortably unless one used the bed. However, the bathroom was large and elegant. Overall I thought the room was very nice, but my rating reflects my assessment of the room we were in more than anything else. Still very nice, and indicative of the time period of the building, but not the most incredible room I have ever stayed in. The pool area was terrific, and the grounds of the hotel are large and lush. I joined their e-mail group several months ago and got a special rate because of a promotion they ran for those on their list. The Langham is an excellent experience, and a great special occasion hotel.

I feel it's over value. This hotel was beautiful hotel with great facility, but not now. Very poor mentancs and unclean such as lots of dust behind the drawer, under the desk, on the lamp, and top of the shelf.... All windows don't have lace curtains, therefore I can not get sunshine though the window because we won't have private. Pillows are old and bad smell! It seemed they have been changing only covers. We are very sad and disappointed. I would say 3 stars value enough instead of 4-5 stars.

We only stayed for 1 night but wished we had more time at this hotel. We stayed in a Grand double and the room was very large. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and had all the little extras in pretty pink boxes. It had a separate tub and shower and marble floors. The patio opened out to their beautiful landscaped grounds. The hotel is located in an upscale neighborhood but close to shops and restaurants. We would defiantly stay here again.
