The Langham, London is one of the oldest hotels in the entire city, having officially opened its doors in 1865, so it’s not a surprise that the design style exudes a classic British aesthetic that’s also been modernized to keep up with the times. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s light brick exterior makes an impressive statement on Portland Place, just off Regent Street — note of the gargoyles in the reliefs, the wrought iron Juliet balconies and the window detailing. The large marble foyer features white pillars flecked with pinks and purples, and the public spaces of the hotel have been designed in the same color scheme reflective of the hotel brand’s Asian heritage. However, the luxury hotel’s guest rooms are notably British, with high ceilings, floral carpeting, dark wood furniture, and cream, pale brown and light blue color scheme.
