                The staff was wonderful. They only wanted to know what else they could do to make you comfortable. We loved how when we would come back into our room in the evening the bed was turned down, there was a bottlle of water for each of us, chocolates, slippers and ice in our ice bucket. Almost like having our own "maid"!!

                The ambiance is incredible, and everyone there makes you feel like you are the most important person in the hotel. The room was spectacular, and the room service was extremely fast. This is the best hotel that we have every stayed in and when I go to Boston this is where I want to be.

                Do not pass up the opportunity to view the antique maps on the second floor. These include a remarkable record of the development of the Boston area. The Wyeth paintings in the same area are also worth a visit. What other hotel in Boston can offer such a wonderful experience amid such pleasant surroundings?

                The breakfast buffet, while offering a variety of tasty dishes, is a little on the expensive side.

                Excellent quality, facilities, location and service

                Charge of 30c per minute for Internet access was excessive and seemed unnecessary while paying about $300 per night for the room

                It needs updating.

                On the first day of our trip -the water and chocolates in our room. The fact that each time I called the concierge or front desk they referred to me by name, all in all it was very obvious that the Langham goes the extra mile that sets them apart.

                The location was great and the room was a good value for an expensive city.

                Would have like to have breakfast included in room at a reasonable price.

              • Older travelers

                See above-the location and the staff. Also, the history of the building is fascinating, and the ways that history was explained (archival photos in the halls,etc.) and the skillful preservation of the larger and public Federal Reserve rooms significantly enhanced the experience. I didn't understand the simplications of the widespread use of pink, but it's bold and it works.

                The Bond's attempt to be restaurant/bar/lounge/nightspot all rolled into one doesn't really work. The furniture and visuals are a bit vampy for a dining room, and the live entertainment on Wednesday nights blasted us out of the there. (The impeccable staff promptly got us reservations at Umbria Prime.)

                The snow-white, pressed sheets were divine. The receptionist graciously let me check out late so I could finish my work in the room rather than in the business center. The magnifying make-up mirror was terrific. Staff were friendly. Good value. I'd return willingly.

                A very light breakfast (granola for my guest, croissants for me) for two people cost $56.29 (including tip) in the mezzanine cafe. A little pricey, and not as good value as the room.
