After a nice, and on time, flight from Portland. We had a chance to walk around town for a while that evening and eat at the Oldest restaurant in the US, the Union Oyster House, where we shared a lobster dinner and we now know the difference between fresh and not so fresh lobster. The next day we took advantage of the trolley …
Detroit to Boston, via Philadelphia Well the day started off ok - Susan and I got to the airport in plenty of time, I checked my suitcase in at the curb, which means no lining up for self check-in, and so I had heaps of time to wander around. But then I had lots more time than I wanted. There had been some bad weather in Philly the night before …
... on Martin Luther King as well. All in all a very enjoyable and educational experience. Back in the burbs Halloween was in full swing,as we left the station the nearby streets were full of kids and adults in costume out trick-or-treating. I called in to the local cafe and a dozen or more treaters invaded the shop which handed over handfuls of sweets to young and old alike. Felt like donning a costume ...
... try to get it at least once each trip. It seemed quiet downtown--quieter than I thought it would be considering how many shops and restaurants there are.
Friday morning I had my surf lesson with Maui Surfer Girls from 8-10am. Owner Dustin was my instructor. You meet your instructor at the beach (one of 2 possible locations). They provide a rash guard and booties for your feet along with the surf board. Dustin carried the boards down and I ...
Today we are going shopping to the outlet mall so we've rented a car for the day.
The car rental place is really busy and there is a long queue but we get our car quickly and go up to the car park to get it.
We get in the car and lee realises he's brought the wrong lead for the gps so we have to stop back at the hotel to pick it up then go on our way.
It only takes 40 min to get to the mall.I meet up with lee about 2.30 and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Langham, Boston
Great hotel, great location
We stayed here to attend the Boston Red Sox World Champion, Victory Parade in October. It was a great location, easy walk to Quincy Market, Downtown Crossing, & the Commons. Room was great, pool and hot tub, just right. We got package with late check out, 3pm, and breakfast buffet (really one of the best breakfast buffets we've had, everything tasted really great, "a cut above the best,".) Parking in adjacent lot was only $10.00 for 24 hours. All staff at hotel and resterant were great. We will go back.
What a great bed!
The Langham was much more than I expected. Everyone was nice and very helpful. We got a new map almost every day sending us in the right direction. The bed was unbelieveable! The rooms were clean and the piano player in the lounge was great!!! Very romantic.
As always, be careful of the mini bar and snacks in the room. $3.29 for a bag of peanut M&M's!
You couldn't have a bad time at the Langham if you tried!
Ordinarily, this place would be out of my budget range. However, after the DNC left town, they offered a half-price one night special and I jumped at it. Honestly, it was one of the best things I ever did. Our standard room was spacious (king size bed, desk, dresser, entertainment center, night stand). Although we didn't have any view (unless you call looking at the wall of another bldg. a view), the room was bright. The bathroom was also a good size. We had a full closet with luxurious bathrobes (for use during the stay) and terry slippers (we took home.) The health club was nice and clean. There was lots of exercise equipment, a whirlpool spa, sauna, locker room and showers (with toiletries provided). The hotel's location is also an asset (easy walking to the North End, Faneuil Hall, downtown). The lobby is modern, clean and inviting. Valet parking was included in our stay's cost as well as Sunday brunch in Cafe Fleuri. The brunch was spectacular! There were dozens of offerings and everything was fresh. The dessert "bar" was awesome. too. Staff were friendly. All told, it was an outstanding stay.
Loved the Langham!
Spent the weekend at the Langham. The service was impeccable. The concierge service was absolutely wonderful. Recommended Trattoria il Panini for dinner and it was terrific. Excellent location. We asked for a non-smoking room, and while our room was not smoky, the 6th floor hallways were.
Would definitely stay here again!
Beware of facades!
the lobby is pretty and the place clean. From thereon it is all downhill. If you have the slightest problem with your back or neck DO NOT sleep here!
The towels were plentiful but threadbare. The doorman is there but is busy running around doing absolutely NOTHING. They offer to take your car and then say "we'll send up the ticket". I don't think the auto insurance co will go for that one. The room with a view looks out on another building's windows or you get a 2 foot wide window facing a park from which you can barely see. Unfortunately, the park view is so limited you have to crane your neck to glimpse it afar. Definitely not worth the price. Try Howard Johnson instead.
Spent a night in the Langham with my husband for his birthday. The service was incredible and the room was beautiful and comfortable. We can't wait to come back. Highly recommend the Langham!!!!!
What a wonderful visit
My husband Al and I stayed at The Langham Boston Feb. 6-8th (2004) and had a wonderful stay. It was as if we'd been transported to Paris! The staff was very attentive & friendly-even though we had booked a weekend internet special rate. I asked for non-feathered bedding and they happily obliged. The consierge staff was great in giving directions and suggestions. We loved our dinner at the Julien-the staff was so nice and the food can't be described. The piano player at the bar played beautifully and the room's atmosphere was incredible-as was the Julien.
Chocophiles will view the Chocolat Buffet as the ultimate indulgence and wish they could eat just one more bite. The Jazz Sunday Brunch is another must do experience...all those choices so beautifully prepared.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay during a cold winter weekend and found it hard to pack our bags and return to the daily grind!
Terrible stay; Unfrendly staff small standard rooms;
One of the worst stays I have had. Service very unpleasant. Friend of mine and I arrived at about 10 PM, the front desk person we outside smoking a cigarette, we had to wait until he finishes his cigarette to check us in. He didnt even greets us, just asked for name, as it turns out even thought we booked room for two people we got only 1 queen size bead. We had to pay additional $30 dollars for an extra bed.The next night as we were entering the hotel security officer asked us for our ID! This has never happened to me before. When we asked why he was asking us for ID he said Hotel Policy a minute after that another couple walked in and he didnt even bother asking them about their ID.We complained to managers who didnt even seam to care. I would strongly discourage anyone from staying there.
We arrived in Boston two days after Christmas, and after a wonderful lunch at the Cafe Fleuri our room was ready! We had a moment to relax in our lovely corner room, overlooking the park, before heading out to see the Boston Pops Holiday concert at 3 PM. William, our concierge, got us a wonderful corner table at Mistral, for after the performance. The hotel was wonderful, the pool perfect, and the staff friendly!
I had a horrible experience at Le Meridien. The room I stayed in was worn and had stains on the wall. The bed was uncomfortable and I had a spring sticking in my back. The service was unbelievably rude. I asked the desk clerk a simple question and received attitude as if I was bothering him and taking away from his time. The location was great because its in the financial area but there is nothing to do at night. I will not ever stay there again nor recomend it to any of my friends.
