      Historical Traveler Reviews The Langham, Boston

      Great hotel, great location

      from

      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!

      from

      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!

      Outstanding!

      from

      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!

      from

      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!

      from

      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.

      Great escapade

      from

      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

      from

      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;

      from

      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.

      Exquisite!

      from

      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!

      Extremely Dissapointed.......

      from

      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.

      I have a lot of confidence in the doctors at Dana - Farber. Heck their pathologists saved my life already when they correctly re-diagnosed the type of cancer that I have. I fully expect that together we can pull out a cure. I'm prepared to do whatever it takes.

Doh! We started our afternoon in Boston with a ride on the Swan Boats in the Boston Public Gardens. It’s apparently a Boston tradition and the boats signal the sign of Spring when they start up in April. The boats are famed for ...
