The Langham Huntington, Pasadena

Pasadena's grand and storied hotel
VERIFIED LUXURY
The Langham Huntington, Pasadena has been a fixture of the city ever since it was built in 1906. After it failed to take flight as the Hotel Wentworth in 1907, it was resurrected in 1911 as the Huntington Hotel when railroad tycoon and art collector Henry Huntington purchased it and employed prominent Los Angeles architect Myron Hunt to redesign the main building and grounds.

Situated on 23 acres, the expansive hotel is made up of 380 guest rooms, 38 suites, eight private cottages and a two-bedroom, two-story Tournament of Roses suite. It also offers three grand historic ballrooms and two gardens.

While you're visiting the luxury Four-Star hotel, enjoy a game of tennis on one of three lighted courts, daily fitness classes, treatments in the new Chuan Spa or an afternoon lounging poolside and grabbing cocktails from the pool bar during the summer.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• Immerse yourself in European luxury as you meander through the corridors and ballrooms gazing at fine art, Asian vases, fresh flower displays and crystal chandlers, which were made by the same atelier who supplied the palace of Ludwig II, the "Mad King of Bavaria."

• On the grounds, stroll through the impeccably manicured palm-lined lawns of the Horseshoe Garden, and among the terraced ponds and gently cascading waterfalls in the Japanese Garden.

• The Langham is conveniently located to all Pasadena attractions, including the Rose Bowl, Norton Simon Museum and the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens.

• Upgrading to the club level ensures premium comforts, such as bespoke concierge services and five food and beverage presentations daily. That includes tea, cocktails, snacks and a continental breakfast.
