The perfect hotell for anyone who wants quality. Me and my grilfriend stayed there for one night and it was perfect. We payed 250$ and it was priceless.

The room was najs and in every detail perfect. From the hair saloon hairdryer to the coffee machine.

A tip is that the hotell has complimentary shoeshining. Just put your shoes in a shoe bag on your door and they will be deliverd before 6 AM on your door!!
The pool area was closed but from the photos you could learn that it would definatley be worth a visit just for the new area.

So go there while if you can find a good price!!

OK, so the decor is a bit twee... not sure who authorised the use of all the flamboyant decorations and pink business cards.... but anyway, we were there for a few nights in March 2008 and we arrived very late at night WITHOUT our luggage (another Heathrow fiasco!) so the staff were absolutely excellent in doing a speedy laundry service for us for the clothes we were wearing to be ready for us the next morning.

Concierge was outstanding - (and one of their business cards even says that he won an award for outstanding service - which I totally believe!) they came to know me as the 'lady with no luggage!". Excellent advice for shopping - thanks guys!

The hotel is huge - and the corridors with endless doors remind you that you're a number. Large lobby with comfy couches. Good location. Very trendy, busy bar.

There was snow on the ground when we were there and so Conceriege advised the best ways to get to different shopping areas if I did not want to walk.

Speedy reservation service for dinner at a great italian restaurant near the hotel - would highly recomment the restaurant... and also this hotel. The gym was closed for renovations - so that should be good when it opens.

Let me say this upfront: we got a room there for about a quarter of the normal price on Hotwire.com. For that price it was a perfect bargain.

If you are going to pay the going rate for this hotel I would go else where.

Your money will get you a clean room (a little bit small but hey it is Boston) and polite staff and that is it. Just about everything else costs extra. For a premium quality hotel I was surprised that they didn't offer free internet access, had a limited cable offering, and the prices for breakfast in your room were ridiculous ($23 for toast and juice? you're kidding me right?). You'd think for the rate of a premium hotel they might have have at least upgraded the soaps or something.

If you want to stay in Boston and are looking to splurge on a stay look for another premium brand, the Langham wasn't any better than any of the higher end chains that cater to the business traveler (minus the amenities).

My husband and I stayed here overnight and we were very pleased. The hotel is beautiful and the service is wonderful. We were so impressed by the nightly turn down service we left an extra tip for that specific maid. I expected the bed to be turned down from other reviews but what i did not expect was our clothes to be picked up and folded, my curling iron to be wrapped up and robes and slippers put out. They just went above and beyond, it was very nice. I do think some things there are a overpriced $14 Martini's (although there are 100 to choose from and very good) the dining room menu's are very overpriced especially for breakfast/room service, two eggs and juice were outrageslouly priced at around $29. Overall the rooms are clean and beds are extremely comfortable. Would highly recommend.....

I stayed here with a girlfriend during the summer and really liked this hotel. It sits directly in downtown Boston's financial district and if you catch this area on a weekend it is a ghost town. It is close to all the hot spots of Boston including blocks away from famous Quincy Market, the waterfront and the Boston Common. All within walking distance. The interior is very nice with upscale lobby and very nice restaurants. One of these restaurants has a Saturday afternoon chocolate bar and for thirty five dollars you can eat all sort of chocolate samples. The staff is nice although seemed a bit snobby for my taste. The check in process was painless, but in asking for help they acted disturbed. The rooms were very nice with a nice bathroom and very spacious. Seeing that this place is close by to everything, I would highly recommend it. Bring your wallet though, it is not the cheapest place in the city to stay.

The location of the Langham is just perfect to get around and about in the city and is within 5-10 mins walk of Quincy market. Our deluxe room was located on one of the higher floors and was very spacious, it was clean and turn down was done every night, the slippers and the dressing gowns were handy for the visits to the pool which was well maintained, it was lovely to relax with some complimentary refreshments around the pool and then make use of the Jacuzzi, we didn’t venture to the gym!
The staff were really helpful throughout the hotel and in particular the concierge team really went out of their way to help and came up with some very good recommendations for Breakfast and Dinner. We had breakfast at the hotel on our last day and it was excellent. The Langham has a lovely atmosphere and is steeped in history, it is elegant and luxurious without being pretentious, and we really enjoyed the piano bar for cocktails where the staff were attentive whilst letting us relax and take in the surroundings. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay here again.
