Conservative but very comfy room with iPod hookup, turndown service and twice-a-day housekeeping service. Really nice linens/pillows/comforter. Bathroom was granite and marble, shower had plenty of pressure. Plush towels and a well thoughout box of bath amenities. Needed a toothbrush and someone was at my door in about two minutes.

I was on the eighth floor, where the windows are angled around the roofline. Great for looking out and added a lot of charm to the room. The view was better than most city-center hotels, loved looking up at the many surrounding skyscapers.

As you'd expect, the staff at the hotel were genuine, friendly and efficient; it made my stay just great. I recomend this hotel very highly.

In addition, if you are there on a Sunday, spend the $$$$ and go to their brunch. It was outstanding and one of the best I have ever seen in my life. Every type of food you can imagine is spread before your eyes. Certainly on par with any Four Seasons!

The only negative was the location is very quiet on a winter Sunday (you are in the epicenter of the financial district which bustles Monday-Friday), but you are a quick stroll to the more vibrant parts of this beautiful city.

I wish all of my boutique hotel stays were this nice!

Pros: Classically Elegant Boutique Hotel

Cons: A Bit Pricey... paid $325/night

We went here after reading this was the 'Best Brunch in the City and well known for the chocolate'. Brunch had a well enough variety and the chocolates were very good although limited, much to our disappointment! One of the older guests had no etiquette and used his fingers on the Sushi which grossqued me out. We had 2 bottles of champagne and had to keep requesting orange juice to make our own Mimosa's. At $55 plus a head, I would rather they put out orange juice on the buffet to help ourselves rather than try and flag a waiter down for OJ! The check was put down on the table 3 different times by 3 different waiters making it confusing who was waiting on us, and making us feel 'rushed'. I have had better brunch and service at the Four Seasons. Langham waitstaff could use a few lessons on service from them as well. Cafe Fleuri was a little noisy and not much ambience, but again adquate, not 4 star.

Pros: Truffles were to 'die' for

Cons: Practically kicked us out....

We just returned from a wonderful three-night stay at The Langham Hotel. The hotel is beautiful and offers all of the amenities that you would expect from a 5-star hotel - exceptionally comfortable, quiet, rooms, plush beds with lots of pillows, wonderful restaurant and bar, new health club/spa... yadah yadah yadah.

What really sets this hotel apart is the keen attention to service that we found throughout. At no point did we walk past an employee and not have them say Good Morning, Afternoon or acknowledge us in some pleasant way... . We booked our reservation with the hotel directly and mentioned that it was our anniversary. Upon arrival at the Reception Desk, the young lady who registered us wished us a Happy Anniversary and truly cared about making our stay perfect. She took time to find a nice room for us on the 7th floor that overlooked the park. It was not an upgrade (as the hotel was sold-out) but the fact that she took time to get us a nice room made us feel special. We made our dinner reservation with the Concierge several days before our arrival - the date and time were reconfirmed in the form of a message in our room. When we arrived at the restaurant (outside of the hotel) the reservation was in order and they too wished us a Happy Anniversary. At the end of dinner, we were treated to dessert and two glasses of champagne from The Langham. When we returned to our room later that evening, we found a nice bottle of wine and homemade petit fours.

This hotel made us feel extra special throughout our stay and we look forward to returning again next year!

Booked through hotwire for a ridiculously low rate. They upgraded me to a king upon arrival, the room was fine, fairly standard though a bit nicer. Good bed, spacious, well filled bathroom. The TV was a little underwhelming, but the radio with iPod hookup was a nice touch. The robes and slippers were nice and the staff very courteous. I took full advantage of the facilities, using the all-new weight room in the evening and then walked a bit on a treadmill equipped with touchscreen controls and a built in TV. The gym also offered running routes, though none were more than 4 miles, so I made my own into south Boston and then stretched in the park adjacent to the hotel, a cute, quiet area. The showers, sauna, indoor lap pool, and jacuzzi were all amazing and definitely a higher level of class than I'm used to in my travels. Would I stay here again? Definitely at hotwire rates, and probably at normal rates too.

If you are looking for a place to go with some friends and have good foods and drinks this is your place. The drinks are pricey but the good food makes up for it.

This restaurant never disappoints. The dining room is spacious and beautiful, and elegant. A special place for a special occasion. The food and wine are exceptional and we've never tasted a thing we didn't like. Very expensive, but worth it.

I stayed at le Meridien hotels while I lived in Europe and was curious to come here. Despite my bad cold, I had a wonderful time here. Received a room upgrade and resided in a large room with a tremendous view and a gigantic bed. I relied heavily on room service, which was a Godsend. The staff is multi-lingual, so I got to practice foreign languages while staying there. I can't wait to go back when I'm not sniffling!
