The Langham Chicago

Chicago, USA

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.

The Langham does not do any early checkins according to our experience...It is 3 pm and one will be asked to sit in the lobby until 3 pm arrives. It appeared that the hotel was not that busy, but the staff was emphatic that we would check in soon...we waited 2.5 hrs, and actually were admitted 20 minutes early after we had elected to find another… Read more

I stayed here 3 nights with friends over a long weekend and had a flawless experience. Every detail is thought of, the room design is both beautiful and functional, amenities are great, and service is warm and thoughtful. Location is excellent too - right by the river, close to many great restaurants and bars, shops, and a short walk to many of the main sightseeing areas. Service is #1. There are so many hotels competing for our tourism dollars. No matter how nice a place is, I can't get behind it if the service is bad. At these type of 5 star hotels, sometimes as a younger, racialized woman who may dress casually, I find there can be some subtle attitude or coldness/snobbery. Not here. I was greeted by name and received warmly throughout my stay. Room: I stayed in a room overlooking State Street with 2 double beds. It was much more spacious than standard hotel rooms, with a large bathroom (soaker tub and rain shower, natch) and a nice vanity area. Large mirrors, good lighting and lots of clothing storage made it a breeze to get ready. The bed was very comfortable and you can choose from foam or feather pillows, or even a lavender pillow. I didn't use the mini bar but it had tons of drink and snack options. I found the area quiet at night, I had no problems with noise despite the central location. Pool and spa: I did not book any services with Chuan Spa, but hotel guests can use the steam room, herbal sauna, salt sauna, and lounge area with heated chairs located in the change rooms. I also used the swimming pool and jacuzzi one afternoon when it was raining and had the pool almost to myself. The pool area has small lockers for your valuables, beach towels, and lemon water. The gym has fitness classes for $30 that I did not try. The schedule is online. The gym looked decent and was not busy. Overall, very happy with my experience here. When you check out, they ask if there is anything that could have been better. Staff seem to truly care about providing the best service and keeping the standard of the hotel consistently high.

First time visitor to this hotel, was very impressed. The location was great and cab service in and out was never a problem. Room amenities very upscale and fresh. More words required so I'll just keep typing.

I absolutely loved my stay at Langham! I had a Club room and had access to the Club Lounge on 12C floor. The food options and spread available in the Lounge was superb and I enjoyed every bit of my stay. If I visit Chicago again, I am definitely staying at Langham again.
