Hotel Description

It takes something special to make a historic impression in Boston, a serious contender for America’s most founder-centric metropolis. Fitting, then, that Langham should make an entrance here via the 1865 Federal Reserve Bank (coincidentally, the very first Langham opened in London that same year). They’ve shrewdly retained the stolid grandeur of its exteriors for effect while dramatically transforming the interiors to present-day standards of luxury. Here, if nowhere else, the Brits maintain an elegant foothold in the Financial District, tempering the neighborhood’s elite pedigree with age-softened British elegance.

It scales rather well — kudos for maintaining the old-world charm at 318 rooms and suites, Langham, and bonus points for foregrounding the impressively sweeping views through oversize windows. Those admit tons of natural light to the guestrooms, lending a lively and breathable air to the tasteful-to-a-fault décor (think vintage striped wallpaper, hardwood galore, and gilt-framed mirrors). Nothing wrong with plushness, of course, especially where it counts on the Blissful beds. Lavish airs of a different sort await in the Italian marble bathrooms, where you’ll get a hint of Chuan Spa’s traditional Chinese preparations in the luxe amenities.

You can be a card-carrying history buff and still enjoy the flatscreens and docking stations, thankfully, but you’d be a fool to deprive yourself of the historic heavyweights along the Freedom Trail just a few blocks north. All that walking works up a healthy appetite, too, for which Mark Sapienza oversees a delectable range of “New” New England plates at Café Fleuri and BOND restaurant; the former under a refreshing atrium ceiling and the latter beneath 25-foot, chandelier-bearing vaults. Expect pitch-perfect afternoon tea with Wedgwood china, a decadent chocolate bar, and cocktails so fresh they need a spanking.
