The hotel

Take your time to soak up the sights of Chicago before slipping into something more comfortable in the form of The Langham on North Wabash. This is an absolutely splendid option for anyone wishing to kick back in style or get out and explore, with all of the downtown 'must sees' just minutes from the impeccably designed front door. Guest rooms are plentiful and provide a perfect window on the world thanks to floor to ceiling glass accompanied by handcrafted wood furnishings and plush Blissful Beds. Further relaxation away from the city streets comes in the form of the hotel's swimming pool, fitness room and award-winning Chuan Spa which features traditional Chinese therapies alongside sensory saunas and a heavenly setting. Once you've fully rested your mind, body and soul it's time to indulge and there's no better option than Travelle for all day American dining or the Pavilion for a slightly more English affair featuring afternoon tea and cakes. If you're looking for a stylish and sophisticated setting from where to throw yourself into the shops, restaurants and attractions bordering the shoreline of Lake Michigan, then there's no finer place to get your razzle dazzle on.

Stayed here for a quick weekend as a staycation. Overall we were really pleased with the hotel. The room was somewhat spacious. There wasn’t much of a view. The room came with nice amenities (including dental kits and slippers). The bed was comfortable, however we found the pillow to be on the stiff side. The club check-in/checkout was a pleasant experience. The club also offers amazing view of the river and downtown Chicago. Food options at the lounge were satisfying and there were limited options for alcohol. I didn’t find fine champagne as mentioned in a previous post, but only sparking wine. The only negative thing I have to say about the lounge is that it’s too crowded. We visited the lounge in the afternoon and early evening and it was filled with people. There were empty dishes and glasses left on tables. We also ordered room service breakfast, which was pleasantly good and well presented. The delivery was a little earlier than expected and caught me in an awkward situation... and when I phoned to have the table cleared away, it took over 30 min for someone to come (when the agent on the phone promised “we’ll send someone right away). None of the above are huge issues and I’m being really picky here. But with a hotel of this reputation, I’d hold a higher standard. Overall, I will recommend this hotel to friends visiting Chicago.

This hotel is worth the splurge! It is beautiful, the staff are exceptionally friendly and the location is great. Highly recommend. We were on a college visit and this made the whole experience very special.

To all at the wonderful employees at the Langham: Thank you. You made my mom’s 90th birthday one we will never forget. From the moment we arrived on the club floor to our time of departure our every need and desire was met. The food presentations in the club lounge were as fine as any 5 star restaurant. The spa and spa services exceeded our expectations. Our suite had a view of Chicago and the river that was inspiring. We were asked more times then I can count if all our needs and desires were met. I will be forever grateful for this experience with my mom and sister—you made it possible. Thank you, thank you. Read less

We have stayed at The Langham twice and both times were impressed by the friendliness and quality of the staff as well as the first-class rooms. We have eaten two dinners at the sleek and stylish restaurant where the food was delicious and service impeccable. The hotel is luxurious and excellent as well as welcoming and comfortable.

My wife and I went to Chicago for the weekend to see Hamilton without our daughter. Stayed at The Langham in the Club Level and it was great. They new our names upon arriving and made us feel welcome. Jeremy was great at checking us in and giving us the lay of the land so that we could be most comfortable and maximize our experience. The concierge Chris did a great job getting us a reservation at Sienna Tavern and arranging a black car to transport us back to airport on Sunday. My wife enjoyed her pedicure and spa session and I enjoyed a lot of peace and quiet, sleep, and good food. Top notch experience all around and we’ll definitely be back. If I’m being picky there was one experience that I was less than satisfied with. There was a staff member in the Club Level named Timothy who I approached and asked if he could proved me with $40 in $5 dollar bills that I could use for tips. He said he didn’t have any and that I could just go dow. to the second floor and ask them. I then asked them if they had a chess board and he said no. This is me being pretty picky but this is a high end place so the little things count. He could have called someone from the second floor or gone down and got the $40 worth of five dollar bills. As for the chess board, not the one in the entire hotel? If not, why not send a staff member out and get one so they have one for us to use and then for future use. This would be above and beyond.
