The Langham, Boston

Earlier this week I posted about my fun fall weekend in New England, and today I’m sharing a little more of it. Our stay at The Langham, Boston, a great luxury hotel located in the financial district of Boston! 

  
Although this wasn’t my first visit to Boston, I knew exactly where I wanted to stay after learning about The Langham brand during my trip to London last year. Oh, so classy.

  
Our first impression was great. We simply pulled up to the front of the hotel, hopped out of the car, handed the keys over to the valet staff member and were off to check in. 

The lobby was pristine and absolutely gorgeous! We couldn’t wait to see our room and freshen up before our Afternoon Tea reservation.

  

   

First up upon entering the room was the bathroom. It was a nice size, which I was happy about, because you never know how they’ll be in bigger cities (most of the time they end up being cramped). I didn’t discover my favorite feature of the bathroom until I stepped out of the shower way later…

   
    
 

…there was a perfect square in the center of the mirror, despite the fog everywhere else! Gone are the days where you have to wait for the bathroom mirror to defog on it’s own or using a towel to clear a spot, my friends! 

  
Stepping out of the bathroom and into the heart of the room, I gravitated directly to the Keurig, and found an array of K-cups of coffee and tea to choose from. ALWAYS a huge win in a hotel room! Plus, I liked the option of having actual coffee mugs or to-go cups, both of which I ended up using.

  
The room itself had a classic, more traditional look, which was perfect for a city with so much history! 

 
  
 

Our Afternoon Tea reservation (served daily from 3-7 p.m.) was shortly after we checked in and I couldn’t wait to experience it! Afternoon Tea is a Langham tradition from their flagship London location, a tradition I was happy to keep embracing, when the Langham extended the invite.

This was Ted’s first time drinking tea EVER (not including iced tea/Arnold Palmers), so when our waiter presented the tea options he had no idea where to begin! Fortunately, I drink quite a bit of tea and our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about all of them, so he was in good hands. 

 
Sandwiches, biscuits, desserts, and tea! Talk about heaven on earth. Our favorite (no surprise) were the biscuits (topped with strawberry jam). Yum! 

  
 

After tea, we hit the city for some exploring, and when we returned, found the most pleasant surprises! 
A card with a fabulous quote + chocolates on the pillow, plus Langham slippers! Unfortunately for Ted, they were a few sizes too small, but they fit me perfectly and were pretty comfy!   

   
We also found some yummy desserts waiting for us (macaroons + mini chocolate balls), sparkling water, and a sweet welcome handwritten note welcoming us. Seriously, the best! 

  

If you’re visiting Boston, chances are you probably won’t have a car with you. But if you do, parking at The Langham is valet and costs $35. I definitely suggest calling down ahead to request your car as well! When we were leaving, everyone was checking in and out, so it was a bit chaotic (and also chilly waiting outside)!
We absolutely loved our stay + Afternoon Tea experience at The Langham, Boston, and hope to visit again soon!

I received a discounted rate for this stay. All opinions are my own.
  • Oh you are making me so homesick for Boston! It looks like you had a great time staying there!

    • We did! I hope you’re able to get back to Boston to visit soon!

  • Ann

    I have never been to Boston. This looks so beautiful :-)

    • It really was, especially this time of year with the fall foilage! You should definitely add it to your bucket list!

  • I know this post was about more than the bathroom mirror…but I’m just in awe of a defogging bathroom mirror…I’ve never heard of any such thing before!

    • Haha, I know! My jaw literally dropped when I pulled the shower curtain back and I saw that. It’s really setting the bar high for all my other hotel stays now!

  • I live not far south of the city so for obvious reasons have never stayed in the city. Wait, I take that back, I did once for a wedding but it was at the The Fairmont Copley Plaza. That’s beside the point though, I’m glad your stay was so wonderful! Macarons and chocolate? I’m sold lol

    • It might be worth planning a staycation sometime in the future :)

  • okay, this all looks amazing, but that mirror!!! every hotel needs that, for reals.

    • I know right?! I’m still in awe of it. I tried to investigate to figure out how they did it (just walking up close to the mirror) but I couldn’t figure it out. It was like magic lol.

  • Looks like SUCH a gorgeous stay! I have been meaning to get back to Boston.

    • It was! So nice to get back every once in a while to visit. I know it’s tough with so many other places to explore though!

  • Wow! I want to try that tea tradition. And I love that the cups they provided for the coffee are actual mugs. THAT’S a hotel I’d return to!

    • Oh, absolutely! I wish I could go to Afternoon Tea every day!

  • All of the little extra touches really do make the difference when you are traveling.
