One night romantic stay for the two of us.
Great room, bed, shower & bathroom, etc all excellent (ring & ask housekeeping for kettle + coffee)
ask for a room near the top.. we sadly had a room on the first floor (directly above the booming sound system)
Everything about the hotel was great. The room, the view, the room service and all of the staff were friendly and professional. The Spa/ pool was a different experience all together. It is not part of the hotel but you are privy to a pass if you stay in the hotel. Kids can only use the pool from 9-11 AM. When we arrived, the reception staff practically recoiled at the sight of our two children (both of whom are competent swimmers). I was given the impression that they were tolerated but only just. One of the staff tried to tell us that we could only use the pool with the children at the weekend but the other conceded when we questioned this that they could go within the alotted time all week. When we made it to the pool, despite the surroundings being lovely, we were left disappointed. Despite it being the "family fun' time, we were only allowed access to one lane in the pool which was busy with other parents and their toddlers. there was therefore no opportunity for our kids aged 9 and 7 to really enjoy themselves. We just had to splash about in a corner for a bit before we left. Not great. We didn't go back. Other than that, the hotel staff were great with the kids, the location was good, loads of transport links within easy reach and plenty of shops and eateries nearby. We felt perfectly safe in the surrounding area at night and the area was also spotlessly clean. Great stay but forget the pool if you have kids. The spa staff are up tight and the clientele somewhat aloof.
Came to London for a long weekend and was looking for a centrally located hotel with a high level of service. Th Langham exceeded all expectations. For example, we stopped by the Concierge desk for a late recommendation on a local restaurant and he "worked" the phone until he found something that was suitable. Really enjoyed our stay and the "high touch" this hotel provides.
Great location across from Green Park within walking distance of Harrods, Buckingham Palace, other sights, and easy access to subway. A lot of cool restaurants and pubs in the Mayfair area a few minutes walk away. The rooms are nicely appointed, very good restaurant, very accommodating and helpful staff. I would definitely stay at the Athenaeum again.
A very relaxing hotel. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in, the bathroom was fantastic, reception, spa, dining areas and bar were all nicely designed. Set in the grounds of Syon Park its quiet but still has good links to Heathrow and central London.
