“Langham Huntington an improvement over Ritz Carlton overall”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

My wife, son and I have stayed here multiple times over the years and it is our local "staycation" hotel as we live in Los Angeles. The property is historic and elegant, and the rooms are very spacious. The Terrace Restaurant has excellent breakfasts, and the beds are very comfy and the speed of the internet is good. The Health Club is very nice too. It is pretty good value, we got a package $269 per night included a $40 food voucher and valet parking. On the downside, the rooms need updating on the decor side, unless youre over 60, the european revival look and the heavy dark colors of the walls and drapery is a real bummer. Many rooms dont have good light so a brighter colored room would help a lot! But, keep the bathrooms as is. Huge, comfy, etc. Also the hallways are all too dark both due to lighting and also due to dark yellowish wall coloring. Yawn. So we will continue to come stay but I do think Langham can upgrade the rooms and make them elegant but brighter and less stuffy.

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room, higher floor.

Our first impression as we pulled in for our 3 night stay was impressive. The timeless look of this classic hotel makes you feel as if you had gone back in time. Let me assure you this charming "old school " hotel had first rate "new world" service. Every member of the staff we encountered went out of their way to ensure a remarkable stay. The room(on the ground floor) opened onto a patio with a great view of the back gardens. We were able to stroll the beautifully manicured grounds and really enjoyed our numerous walks. The food and drinks in the Tap Room were off the charts! We look forward to our next visit!

Its a very nice looking hotel, a bit old but well maintained nonetheless! Located in the beautiful Pasadena area the hotel fits the local charm! Service was good throughout, despite some hiccups. I've rarely been to a hotel where they dont have complimentary water bottles in the room. Other than that the room service was quick and friendly like all people in LA! Until we got to the breakfast the next morning and chose the buffet. We had a bad experience with the food quality and hygiene (mold on the blueberries and smoked salmon and similar food items not on chilled platters) and the service there that wasnt up to par with the hospitality standards of similar hotels. Nonetheless when we called out for the manager she was quick to respond and was very cooperative, understanding and apologetic, and she didnt charge us for the breakfast. Would probably go back again but won't eat there for sure !

We've stayed here twice with the kids for a few nights each time. Great reception - they make you feel very welcome. Each time we've stayed in a Lanai room. If possible go for the ground floor - they open straight onto the pool area and the kids can run straight down there. If you take breakfast at the Terrace you can keep an eye on them whilst they have a morning dip. The noise rules are enforced and the proximity to the pool did not disturb us (although maybe we were making all the noise!) Room was well equipped and spacious enough for the 4 of us for 2 nights. We encountered some snobbishness form some of the other quests (the only time we've ever encountered this in the USA) but taking a look at some of the multimillion properties around the hotel Im not that suprised. The library and botanical gardens were lovely, and old Pasadena abslutely charming.

Great hotel. We stoud 4 days in this hotel and it was really great. Beautiful view of Los angeles. The room was very large (I've got an up grated room) and really nicely decorated. Very large marble bathroom.
The Tap Bar (outside) as amazing view of L.A. at night.
Great hotel service.

I stayed here for three nights with my daughter on a college visiting trip. What a delightful place. The room was spacious, was the lobbies and restaurants were all beautifully decorated and the grounds are stunning. The pool looked great although we didn't swim. We did take advantage of the hot tub. The best part of the evenings was having a glass of wine out on their deck, under the heat lamps. Really lovely. The whole place has a 1930's feel, but is really well kept up. Staff was great. Gym was fine. Spa looked nice, but alas we didn't make it there. Ate at the restaurant one night - OK, but I preferred the snacks outside at the bar. Tea and Coffee outside in the morning was nice, but could have used a coffee cart that made Latte's. Do know you need to pay a valet fee, so add that to the cost. But we got a great rate, and it was well worth it. Everyone was very helpful with directions, etc. I will go back.

Rooms: The rooms are spacious. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom had marble floors and was nicely appointed. The toiletries that the hotel provided smelled fantastic. They even had body wash!

Spa/Fitness: I found the spa prices extremely overrpriced so I didn't have any treatments while I was there, however, the fitness center does have aerobics classes. I took 2 zumba classes which were fun. The majority of the aerobic classes are yoga, and Tai Chi, as their clientel is primarily an older crowd. They do have exercise equipment and weights in the gym in you prefer a treadmill or elliptical.

Restaurants: The bar/restaurant within the hotel is quite nice. Service is prompt, and the food was pretty good. I had the Short Rib fries.

Location: The hotel is located within a suburban neighboorhood, hence you will have to drive or taxi to get to downtown Pasadena or Old Town Pasadena. Both areas are only a 10-15 minute ride away.
