“Great Hotel - 2 small complaints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We have stayed there a number of times before, when it was the Ritz Carlton and were pleased to find that the hotel was as good as we remembered.
Only complaints - the pool was too cold and (more seriosuly) the steps down to the pool has not been swept for some time and were dirty with all sorts of stuff on them - not very nice with bare feet.

But overall was great

This hotel is grand and sits on expansive acreage with beautiful elegant rooms and a Michellin rated restaurant, The Royce. The spa is small but very well appointed as is the gym. There is great live music at the bar on weekend evenings and they serve an old world traditional afternoon tea with Champagne as well. This is the nicest property in the area by far.

My wife and I like to vacation in the LA area as getaways from the cold temps and snow of our. We enjoy staying in Pasadena due to its proximity to the Huntington Library, the Norton-Simon, Old Pasadena, and more. For most of our past trips we've stayed in the standard Pasadena chain hotels. To change things up I surprised my wife with a recent stay at the Langham Huntington. We weren't disappointed.

A major plus to a Langham stay is that you're away from the heavy traffic and bustle of hotels near or just off of Colorado Blvd. We love that part of Colorado Blvd which lies within Old Pasadena for its restaurants and shopping. The Langham is easily a 5-10 drive from Old Pasadena. The Langham sits in the middle of a residential area, making it far removed from the normal noises of the city.

Our room had a wonderful comfortable king-sized bed. The room was practically consumed just with the bed. There was a little desk and a couple of arm chairs. The bathroom was large and well appointed. When we stay next, we'll likely reserve a room with more square footage.

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast one morning. After breakfast, we enjoyed a leisurely walk around the property. The grounds are beautiful.

One suggestion that really doesn't pertain to the hotel. Whenever we stay in Pasadena, we make it a habit on Saturday mornings to stop by a local farmers market. It is located north of the 210 on S San Gabriel, in the parking lot of the Pasadena HS. We like to grab fresh fruit and produce, flowers, and other treats to take back home.

Since our visit, my wife and I frequently talk about the Langham and how we need to return to enjoy another long weekend.

I stayed at the Langham while visiting my daughter and brand new granddaughter in South Pasadena. Everything was wonderful except for the cleanliness of the stairwells. It appeared to be untouched by paint brush or mop for years. We stayed in the 5th floor and would always start and end our walk by using the stairs. I can't believe the management would not walk these corridors and see how dirty it is. I will be back next month though as it was really a great place-nice pool and very friendly staff!!

During our one night stay to catch an LA opera and tour the Huntington gardens, we opted for the package that includes valet parking and a breakfast credit on the Terrace overlooking the pool. I loved the wide hallways full of antique reproduction furniture and paintings, and the central courtyard with a fountain which gave it a British estate feel. Our spacious corner room included a huge bathroom with granite floors, a separate large shower and bath tub. We enjoyed our 4th floor view overlooking the grounds and the green treed valley beyond. Be sure and stroll the extensive grounds and check out the paintings on the bridge overlooking the pool. Excellent service throughout, including the valet parking. Only seven miles from downtown LA made it an easy drive into the opera, yet the grounds make you feel like you are in Europe.

Room Tip: Ask for 4th floor or higher to enjoy the spectacular view. Patio rooms on the lowest floor are at gr...

Just got back from a four night stay at the Langham Huntington. Our party included one adult and 3 kids. We greatly enjoyed the hotel, its pool, the staff , and the grounds. We had a large superior double bed room which worked out fine for our family. The bathroom was huge. The swimming pool and jacuzzi were just great. Enjoyed food and beverage service at the pool. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful with its own Japanese Garden. Valet parking quick and easy. We had a package rate which gave us free valet parking and a $40 breakfast credit each morning. Fantastic meals in the Terrace Dining room. My only minor complaint was that some of the furniture in the room and public lounges was getting just a little bit worn. But this was only noticeable by a really picky person. The staff is great and friendly to kids. This is what a luxury hotel should be. Will return to the Langham Huntington next time in Pasadena.

I have stayed at the Langham on a few occasions this past year and it is just a great hotel.
Very elegant .well trained staff and with an old world style.
This is what a luxury hotel should be.
Great staff who go the extra mile to please and make you comfortable.
Better than most of the 5 star competition.
Cannot wait to return.
