There are more things than we can count to love about The Langham, Boston after its absolutely gorgeous top-to-bottom renovation, and with the hotel’s latest Let’s Get Away offer, guests have the advantage of getting 20 percent off their stay. So, we caught up with the hotel’s concierge and made a list of our top 10 favorite reasons why this New England getaway makes for the perfect weekend jaunt any time of year.
When you book your stay, be sure to book the New Langham, New Experience package, which includes a heritage tour of the hotel’s incredible 100-year history (The hotel was once home to the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.) Details from the original design have been restored including the brass casement windows and terrazzo floor in Grana, the hotel’s signature restaurant.
With the sharable and family-style Italian dishes at Grana, the hotel’s new Italian restaurant set in the former Federal Reserve’s grand hall, you won’t have to choose between the bone-in veal Milanese with wild arugula and the stewed cioppino with New England shellfish and crispy striped bass. You can try them both.
CUSTOMIZED SEAFOOD TOWERS
The Fed, the hotel’s new pub inspired by the ones you find across the pond gives seafood lovers their dream dish. Indulge in a tower of seafood customized with oysters, lobsters, prawns, shrimp, scallops and more. Plus, they have some inventive appetizers and whimsically titled cocktails for a memorable night out.
GALLERY-WORTHY ART COLLECTION
As you walk the halls of The Langham, you’ll get a glimpse of some of Boston’s talented local artists and artworks that pay homage to the buildings past, including a seven-foot wire sculpture of the Lady Liberty coin head, authentically painted New England-style portraits of the former bank presidents, and a time lapse photography series.
RESIDENTIALLY STYLED ROOMS
Let us just say that you have a selection of eight types of pillows when you check in at The Langham. Their guest rooms have all the expected comforts like plush beds, complimentary Wi-Fi and 50-inch LED HD televisions, but feel more like an upscale city apartment with shagreen tables, Nespresso machines, wood floor entryways, Italian marble rainfall showers, fogless mirrors and built-in millwork wardrobes.
Speaking of cocktails, the sophisticated first-floor space of The Fed, has a large and animated central bar surrounding seating for a more intimate experience, plus an outdoor terrace. Craft cocktails and beers, and elevated pub fare combine to make this the perfect place for girls night out or date night.
EASY ACCESS TO BOSTON’S ATTRACTIONS
Ask the concierge about favorite haunts for history buffs like Paul Revere’s house and Old North Church, bring the family to see the incredible Giant Ocean tank at the New England Aquarium, or check out the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston on free Thursday nights.
It’s hard to imagine a stay at The Langham getting more luxurious, but guests who join The Langham Club located on the eighth floor, get a next-level experience: Upgrade your stay to enjoy all-day culinary offerings and refreshments. As a guest of the Club you have the added bonus of a private haven with views of the park and having your garments freshly pressed when you arrive.
MASTERS OF HOSPITALITY
Families coming to check in or visit one of the many college campuses in Boston might want to ask about the hotel’s College Concierge Curriculum, two packages with special rates geared toward college kids and parents. Both The College Prep Package and The Big Move to Boston package come with a car and driver for a campus tour, a welcome package of sweets from a local pastry chef and a parting gift.
The Langham, Boston is partnering with private aviation provider XO to offer guests access to XO’s fleet of more than 2,000 planes around the world. You’ll have priority access to some super midsize jets like the Citation X, which is designed for coast-to-coast flights.
