We have our greatest moment in NYC at the former Setai / newly Langham hotel, for my wife 40th birthday. She loves the city and especially the Chrysler building, and was not expecting the stay she was to about to live.
Thanks to Ken's advice, I booked a city 01 Suite which definitely has the best view on the Chrysler and 5th Avenue. Having my habits in NYC, the Setai/Langham has definitely the biggest room for the money you are paying. Of course it is not cheap at all, but it is really worth the value. The service is impeccable from the receptionist, to the bell boy, to the housekeeping, and a special thanks to Ken who was available at anytime to fulfill our wishes. I just regret to have missed the complementary hotel's Quattroporte Maserati, which was "broken", replaced by brand new SUV.
My wife and I slept wonderfully in our king size bed within very high quality linen and mattress. You could slightly hear the whistle of the elevator, but was not disturbing for us at all. The living room is huge and well elegantly decorated like the rest of the suite if you like dark wooden sober style. The bar kitchen is filled with complementary drinks every day as well as the Nespresso machine. What Else!
The SPA is disappointing, especially the Aqua Lounge. The team is great, but the location is quite standard; it is more looking like a condo fitness/sauna lounge. However, without any surcharge, you can have the cheapest 5* hotel massage in a couple room in Manhattan.
We really like the concept of no check-in/no check-out. They tell you upon arrival, depending on your constraints and theirs, at what time you can leave the room upon departure. Since we were having a late night flight, the hotel let us keep the room until 4PM.
Overall we loved the place and definitely will return to the Setai, oops not... the Langham now since Tuesday 7th of May! I hope the new management will not change anything to the perfect service. Anyway I will check on tripadvisor!
Thank you Ken and thank you to the all Setai team who were all aware of this special event and made everything possible to make our stay at the Setai perfect.
See you soon (with our Kids next time)! :-))))))))
