On arrival to The Langham Melbourne, we are greeted immediately by a warm welcome by Concierge, keen to please and eager to assist you we are escorted to the lobby. The lobby is well known for its grand twin stair case and flower displays that would rival any 5 star entrance around the world. This immediately sets the standard for our stay.
The Langham, Melbourne is conveniently located on Southbank’s doorstep. Its views overlook “everything” Melbourne! Well known tourist icons jumping out at you at every turn. Flinders Street Station, Federation Square, the Yarra River, the infamous trams, MCG….and did I mention the breathtaking skyline? At night Melbourne really shines like the rare jewel it is. All this and we haven’t even left our room!
Senior Stays are invited to look around the hotel to explore and experience what The Langham has on offer for its guests. From the 388 classically appointed suites and guest rooms that they have on offer for your stay, to the stylish dining options that not to mention the view and location of the hotel where the Melba sits proudly overlooking South Bank.
Before we decide to settle into our suite we also had a wander to view the peaceful ambiance of the Chuan Spa offering body treatments, massages, and facials for guests to rejuvenate after a long day of travel or work.
The Langham also includes a 15-metre indoor pool for you to continue your fitness regime along with fully equipped Fitness Centre and Health Club allowing your fitness routine to continue flowing whilst away from home.
We were also fortunate on our stay to experience the exclusive club privileges which included:
• Access to the exclusive Langham Club Lounge on the 24th floor
• Deluxe continental breakfast selection.
• All-day tea, coffee & pastries as well as traditional afternoon tea.
• Pre-dinner drinks and hors d’oeuvres served in the lounge.
As we opened the door to our suite, we felt as if we were one of the Royals! Our room was fit for a King and we could instantly tell that we were surrounded by quality fittings and fixtures and once again an outstanding view looking out to the very best Melbourne has to offer.
The Langham did not disappoint as we looked through a well-stocked mini bar and plenty of different things to nibble on if at any time we felt the urge for a midnight snack. At The Langham, they do not miss on the little things such as a fully equipped bathroom amenities box, if you have forgotten to bring the essentials, they have it covered!
We prepare to enjoy an evening out on the town, the fluffy white dressing gowns that hang side by side in the wardrobe look inviting and promise to keep the mood relaxed as we prepare for an evening on the town in the glamorous bathroom.
The staff effortlessly organise a taxi for you and complete their services by turning your bed down, lamps strategically left on with lovely jazz music in the background, creating a warm welcome home on your arrival after a lovely evening out.
Breakfast the next morning is offered up in the Melba restaurant and once again The Langham staff have pulled out all stops to make the experience of your stay extra special. The breakfast buffet caters for all nationalities and tastes. Omelettes are prepared in front of you and the hot food is regularly replaced to keep the food fresh and appealing for the guests as they arrive throughout the morning. Pastries are in abundance and coffee brewed to perfection. As we watch commuters go about their day on South Banks busy promenade, they create a buzz and vibe outside the window. The Melba restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy your breakfast and plan your day ahead and catch up on the latest news in a selection of morning papers.
I highly recommend the Langham for a business stay, family break or mid-week getaway. You have sports and entertainment venues at your door step, which include river access too. Some of Melbourne’s best Art Galleries, Crown Casino, an abundance of designer shops, restaurants and how could we forget the quirky lane way cafes? All this and 10 minutes by tram you can be at the iconic St Kilda Beach, what more could you ask for?
The Langham Melbourne will see us back very soon!
