The Langham Chicago – American hospitality with a touch of British flair
The Langham Chicago is perfect for anyone seeking to enjoy American hospitality with a touch of British flair. Strategically located in the heart of Chicago, The Langham Chicago exudes effortless luxury combined with stylish comfort and modern convenience. Comprising 268 guest rooms and 48 suites, each room and suite are designed with the discerning traveler’s comfort in mind. Warm color tones accented with rich textiles and dark woods create welcoming and open spaces. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow guests to enjoy sweeping vistas of the Chicago skyline and the Chicago river. Nature blends seamlessly with today’s modern conveniences, making every room a comforting place to relax in.
But like any other hotel, not all is perfect at The Langham Chicago. Sometimes it’s the little things that matter. Some have stayed at The Langham Chicago only to find that although a bottle of conditioner was provided, there was no shampoo. Probably a tiny snafu but if you were already halfway into taking a shower and realize too late that there was no shampoo, this can ruin what could have been an enjoyable shower. Sometimes after a long and arduous flight, all a guest wants is a long and warm shower with all the necessities on hand. Unfortunately, service at The Langham Chicago can be a bit slow. But then again this is just a tiny gaffe.
However food choices at The Langham Chicago are aplenty. Food can be a bit pricey though. An expensive treat, the breakfast buffet should include more made-to-order choices. At Travelle restaurant and lounge, guests can discover and sample Chef Tim Graham’s contemporary take on Seasonal American. For a taste of classic heritage, guests should try the Langham Afternoon Tea with Wedgwood combined with views of the stunning Chicago skyline in the equally stunning lounge, Pavilion. The bar can get pretty crowded on a Friday and the drinks can be a bit pricey at $30 for two Stolis. But if guests have had enough of the food at The Langham Chicago, a delectable breakfast buffet is available at the hotel right next to the Stuttgart airport.
With an enviable riverfront location in downtown Chicago, The Langham Chicago is only a stone’s throw away from major attractions. It is only a few minutes’ walk from the Loop, Grant Park, Magnificent Mile, Millennium Park, and Navy Pier. The Langham Chicago is on par with the Ritz. But it is a little more hip and a little less straitlaced than the Ritz. It is also still relatively new. It is only less than a couple of years old so not many people outside Chicago are familiar with it. This can be a good thing or bad. Good in a way that it remains a hidden gem. And is less crowded than other luxurious hotels in the area.
It can also be a downside because getting to it can be a bit confusing. But give it a little more time and it sure is to become one of the most popular in town.
