The Langham, London has announced the next phase of its evolution with the addition of several new suites and residences slated to launch in time for summer 2016. The new rooms, located in the main building facing Portland Place, with views of the BBC and All Souls Church buildings, will further elevate the hotel’s position in the luxury hotel market.
The project, spearheaded by designers Richmond International—the team behind the additions of the exclusive Regent Wing, Langham Club Lounge, and London’s most expensive six-bedroom Sterling Suite during the hotel’s 150th anniversary year in 2015—will see the addition of 115 new guestrooms, including 25 suites. One third of the overall hotel inventory will be reconfigured to provide a more refined and residential style with the creation of new suites and five Residences fitted with designer kitchens and Miele appliances.
As commented by Managing Director Bob van den Oord, “The Langham, London has been adapting its luxury offering in recent years to cater to a more esteemed and discerning clientele. These guests are looking for a more personalised stay, with bespoke service, and this refined accommodation component, together with our Butler service and Private Kitchen menu in partnership with Chez Roux, will ensure that these needs are met’.
Key design features will include panelling providing a historical sense of proportion, painted in soft natural shades to create a neutral back-drop, and a subtle colour scheme throughout. Additional elements will include lighting by leading designers Chelsom, key furniture pieces by Stella Works, and soft furnishings by Bowden Tollit & Associates. Rooms will also feature selected artwork reflecting an eclectic mix by international artists.
All Suites and Residences will be attended by an extensive team of butlers assisting with guests’ personal requests, from unpacking suitcases and colour-coding clothes in wardrobes, to personalizing pillows and room temperature, and organising bespoke itineraries. Foodstuff from Selfridges Foodhall will be stocked for long stay guests.
