The Langham, Boston has reopened its doors after a
two-year, multi-million dollar renovation.
Dyer Brown was chosen as architect and designer of the
exterior hotel improvements as well as architect of record for the new
interiors, while Richmond International oversaw the interior
design and curated the hotel’s art collection – all of which
reflect the building’s background as the former Federal Reserve
Bank of Boston.
“We are thrilled to welcome guests back to The
Langham after more than two years of restoration and reimagination
of the space,” said Michele Grosso, managing director of The
Langham, Boston. “Guests of The Langham will surely notice the
extraordinary transformation that came with the great deal of time
and care, tying it seamlessly back to its Boston banking heritage
but with a fresh, luxurious touch.”
completely redesigned guest rooms and suites all feature brand new
marble-clad bathrooms, New England-inspired décor and, in the case
of the hotel’s signature Loft Suites, two-storey brass-embossed
windows accenting the bi-level living and sleeping quarters left
from the hotel’s days as the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
prestigious Chairman’s Suite, a luxury penthouse featuring a
king-sized bed, hardwood floors, a living room complete with a
baby grand piano and a generous dining room that seats eight
people, could well become one of Boston’s most sought-after suites.
For foodies and cocktail aficionados, The Langham,
Boston promises to be a destination unto itself. The Fed, a brand
new destination bar, offers an outdoor terrace and
a British cocktail pub menu with a New England twist. Grana, which
will open on 9 July, will offer an authentic Italian
dining experience set in the former grand hall of the Federal
Reserve Bank of Boston, with soaring ceilings, ornate chandeliers
and velvet banquettes. All culinary offerings at the hotel will be
overseen by Executive Chef Stephen Bukoff.
Guests of the hotel can also partake in a daily
complimentary Heritage Tour of the hotel, including an overview of
the impressive new art collection and the building’s heritage as
the former Federal Reserve Bank of Boston in 1922.
This fall, the hotel will introduce The Langham
Club, a signature of The Langham Hotels & Resorts brand, featuring
a private space in which guests who have purchased Club access can
meet, eat and socialize; and a brand new pool, hot tub and fitness centre.
“We are very proud to be re-introducing The
Langham, Boston in all its new glory to the world,” said Stefan
Leser, chief executive officer, Langham Hospitality Group. “With
its historic location, original Wyeth murals, the new collection
of specially curated artworks, as well as the addition of The
Langham Club, this hotel will be the epitome of a new American
classic and a wonderful addition to The Langham collection of
