First things first, it’s the location. Located conveniently at Regent Street, Langham is a landmark on its own. The hotel was opened in 1865 by The Prince of Wales as Europe’s first “Grand Hotel” and has 380 luxurious guestrooms, dining venues and a fitness zone. Last year the hotel celebrated the milestone of its 150th anniversary, with the opening of a Regent Wing with Deluxe Rooms, The Sterling Suite and the Langham Club Lounge. In fact its Sterling Suite, is one of London’s largest with up to six bedrooms. Around 40 minutes away from the airport, The Langham, London welcomes you to a grand entrance with a gentle, hassle-free check in process. For those with a club lounge access you can directly check in from there without having to queue in the main lobby. Elegance at its best, the hotel is designed in a way that breeds regality. From the marbled floors to ceilings, an opulent chandelier looming over the entrance, it definitely makes a good first impression. The entrance leads to an all day dining restaurant facing the popular Artesian lounge. You begin to enjoy the sort of luxury the Middle East traveler is accustomed to until you enter the elevator. And this is when things get smaller. So next time you hear someone exaggerate stories about limited space and size in London, you know it is true. A one-bedroom or superior room is just about 28 square meter, a bit smaller than you expect in the region, even for a luxury hotel. The confined space makes for a cozy feel. With tones of crisp white, pink and subdued gold, the décor reflects an elegant Victorian classic luxury collection with a lush marble bathroom perfect to relax in. If you are in London this winter, during Christmas or New Years eve, make sure you get out and experience the city at its peak. The Regent Street Christmas lights, illuminate Regent Street and beyond to create a winter wonderland of their own. But lets also not forget what Saudis love most about London. Shopping, of course.
Langham’s location is an ideal choice for those who want to enjoy the shopping extravaganza. Here is a tip. Grab a drink or breakfast from Starbucks or Pret, just a minute away from the hotel and make your way down the most-sought after spots in town. Just to get your bearings right, the hotel is located in the heart of the West End, between four of the city’s most popular areas; Marylebone, Fitzrovia, Mayfair and Soho. From the Apple store, Zara to Selfridges, everything is close by and walking distance. Not only does it offer the best of fashion and designer names but the area is also home to many exclusive cafes and renowned restaurants. Black Friday sales are chaotic to say the least but an experience nonetheless.
For many of you who wish to stay longer in a home setting, while in London, The Langham, has purposely created a home-away-from-home experience with their new Residences, featuring an Arabic-speaking butler service and foodstuff from Selfridges Foodhall. So if you just want to call it a day, you can settle in and still catch up on all the fun. Check out their latest offers from Christmas to Bed and Breakfast to a lot more.
