Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The architectural features shine at this historic hotel, which was renovated in June 2021. You’ll see the 1922 bank’s terrazzo floors, the official Federal Reserve Bank seal, the original frieze ceiling and more.
  • Savor a decadent weekend brunch at Grana. The Al Tavolo menu is a mouthwatering spread that includes dishes like crispy hash brown waffles with shaved San Daniele prosciutto, truffle Gouda and black truffles; spaghetti pancakes with rock shrimp ragout; and crab cake Benedict.
  • Most rooms provide a glimpse of the city skyline, but for the best views, opt for a top-floor suite.
  • Check out The Langham’s contemporary art collection that gleans inspiration from its former life as a banking and Boston’s rich history. The 265-plus collection includes an eight-foot-tall suspended head sculpture by Lyle London that nods to the Liberty coin and a portrait of well-known Bostonian portraitist John Singleton Copley from local artist Samuel Gareginyan.
  • Upgrade to a room or suite with access to The Langham Club, an exclusive eighth-floor respite overlooking Norman B. Leventhal Park that serves complimentary refreshments throughout the day. Club-level guests also get three pressings with their stay.

Things to Know

  • Working out is a breeze in the 24-hour fitness center outfitted with Technogym machines, Peloton bikes and strength-training equipment.
  • The luxury hotel sits at Norman B. Leventhal Park and Post Office Square, which offers morning fitness classes and noontime concerts Tuesdays and Thursdays when the weather turns warm.

The Rooms

  • The accommodations incorporate design influences from travel (like the cellaret that resembles an antique travel trunk), the New England coast (pops of blue recall the nearby harbor) and Boston’s history (from the artwork to the plaid accents).
  • All 312 rooms come with flat-screen HD televisions, touch-control heat and air conditioning, coffee and tea makers, white Italian marble bathrooms and plush robes.
  • The rooms have unique art curated by The Copley Society, the local gallery that helped build the entire collection at the Boston hotel. The split-level Loft Suites feature a sculptural art piece from Boston artist Jeremy Ogusky that contains about 60 pieces of wheel-thrown glazed plates.
  • The best lodging is the seventh-floor Chairman Suite, with its wood-paneled walls, Persian-inspired rugs and herringbone floor. The living room offers a piano and fireplace, while the dining room showcases an installation from paper artist Olga Skorokhod.
  • Open the cellaret to find the large mini-bar stocked with local beers and cider.

The Restaurants

  • Set under ornate moldings and chandeliers, Grana serves Italian fare for breakfast, lunch and weekend brunch.
  • Slide into one of the velvet sofas at The Fed for New England comfort food like lobster fries with tarragon aioli; the 10-mile charcuterie board piled with local smoked meats, cheeses and bread; a lobster tower; and Boston cream pie. Top it off with a cocktail like Kool and the Gang, with The Langham, Boston Celebration Gin, raspberry, lime, ginger, aquafaba and tonic.
