The Langham Place New York on Fifth Avenue is conveniently located near NYC’s popular tourist spots and corporate offices. One of the top midtown manhattan hotels, this 214-room establishment offers its guest a modern and luxurious experience with its huge rooms that offers great features, such as free WiFi, and high-end linens and toiletries. The décor of the hotel, though, is rather plain meaning it lacks any sort of real character.
Langham Place New York is located at the heart of Manhattan, convenient for tourists as the hotel is basically minutes away from some of the city’s famous tourist spot and shopping areas like the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Times Square and many more. The hotel is also near 15 subway lines, making it easy for tourists to visit other places in the city.
Aside from being near tourist spots and shopping center, Langham Place New York offers guests a luxurious experience with its huge rooms that are well equipped, a great restaurant and a full-service spa. Guests will be able to enjoy a king-sized bed with luxurious beddings and linens.

Guests can also watch TV while in the shower with the 19-inch TV embedded into the bathroom mirror.
The Langham Place New York also offers its guests a full-service spa that has 11 treatment rooms, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, an ice cave, a hammam, and a steam room.

The hotel also offers yoga and reiki classes, as well as private lessons. After working out, guests can then proceed to the Julien Farel Salon, to get their hair, makeup and nails done.
But what sets Langham Place Fifth Avenue apart from other luxury hotel is their excellent customer service. The hotel attends to its guests the moment they walk through the doors. You’ll even be assigned your own personal concierge who would call before you arrive to ask if there’s anything you need help with, like dinner reservations or tourist spot bookings. The hotel also offers a babysitting service for parents who intend on visiting a restaurant or venue where they can’t take their children along with them.
Food wise, guests can look forward to a taste of Ai Fiori, a French-Italian restaurant that serves dishes like slow-poached egg with lobster and sweetbread. The restaurant’s cuisine is prepared by chef Michael White. For some cocktail drinks and nightly jazz music, the Bar on Fifth is the place to be. It’s a low-key bar that with a fireplace and attracts mostly corporate types looking to unwind after a busy day in the office.
One caveat with the Langham Place New York, though, is its lack of a great design. For a luxury hotel, the Langham certainly looks plain and lacks some sort of identity. Nevertheless, this is just a minor inconvenience compared to its array of wonderful features and services.
