Langham Place Hotel, Hong Kong

Hong Kong Family

A refreshing and calming contrast to the frenetic energy on the streets outside.

The rooms and suites are modern and luxurious, each offering all the state-of-the-art amenities expected of a five-star hotel. Upon arrival in your suite, the stunning glass-walled both room immediately strikes you with its centerpiece, a huge marble both. Later, while relaxing in the tub you can enjoy the spectacular views through the floor-to-ceiling windows across Kowloon.

If the nearby markets haven’t worn you out, there’s a 15′ storey entertainment complex Within Langham Place. The mall houses over 300 shops, 50 restaurants and a cinema complex; it’s guaranteed to satisfy any residual shopping desires-this is, after all, Hong Kong. For those ready to collapse, the rooftop pool is a perfect sun-trap. Or, for the ultimate indulgence, retreat to Chuan Spa for some serious pampering.

Langham Place Hotel offers some diverse culinary experiences from traditional Cantonese at Ming Court to barbecued steak under fairy lit trees in The Backyard. The Portal, a concept work-and play area, is a magical hideout for any multitasking businessman who likes to enjoy a beer while watching a football game and catching up with the day’s emails all at the some time.

If you need to stay in touch with the world twenty-four-seven, the hotel has an astonishing 4,000 network connections, 1,500 IP phones and 500 wireless access points to allow you to do just that with mobile land phones working anywhere inside the hotel, you can keep connected while eating at any of the restaurants, working out at the fitness studio, or even while lounging by the rooftop pool. Wireless Internet installed throughout the hotel offers guests the opportunity to toke their work outdoors and make the most of the panoramic views. Touch-screen phones in the rooms enable guests to access weather updates, the news and stock quotes; and a huge plasma screen with a DVD player (complimentary DVDs available) ensure the hotel’s status as the most technologically advanced in the Asia Pacific.

That’s not to say the Langham is all cable and wireless. It’s also been voted the ‘Best Art Gallery Masquerading as a Hotel’, and as Hong Kong’s first modern Chinese Art Hotel offering guided art tours, it houses one of the largest collections in the city with over 1,500 pieces from local and Mainland Chinese artists. With such a cultural backdrop, a stay here is always a pleasure.
