NEW YORK—The Langham Place brand will come to North America with the opening of the Langham Place, Fifth Avenue next week.
The property, which was formerly the Setai Fifth Avenue, will be managed by Langham Hospitality. The Langham Place brand is an extension of the heritage and tradition that began with the opening of The Langham, London hotel in 1865. The company is planning aesthetic changes and updated furnishings for the 214-room hotel.
