LONDON—The Langham, London is planning to add several new suites and residences slated to launch this summer. The new rooms will be located in the main building facing Portland Place, with views of the BBC and All Souls Church buildings.
Designer Richmond International—the team behind the Regent Wing, Langham Club Lounge and six-bedroom Sterling Suite during the hotel’s 150th anniversary year in 2015—will execute the addition of 115 new guestrooms, including 25 suites.
One-third of the overall hotel inventory will be reconfigured to provide a more refined and residential style with the creation of new suites and five residences fitted with designer kitchens and Miele appliances, according to the company.
“The Langham, London has been adapting its luxury offering in recent years to cater to a more esteemed and discerning clientele,” said Bob van den Oord, managing director, Langham, London. “These guests are looking for a more personalized stay, with bespoke service, and this refined accommodation component, together with our Butler service and private kitchen menu in partnership with Chez Roux, will ensure that these needs are met.”
Design highlights will include paneling painted in natural shades to create a neutral backdrop, and a subtle color scheme throughout, according to the company. Additional elements will include lighting by designers Chelsom, key furniture pieces by Stella Works and soft furnishings by Bowden Tollit & Associates. Rooms will also feature selected artwork reflecting an eclectic mix by international artists.
All suites and residences will be attended by an extensive team of butlers assisting with personal requests, from unpacking suitcases and color-coding clothes in wardrobes, to personalizing pillows and room temperature, and organizing bespoke itineraries. Selfridges Foodhall will supply F&B for long-stay guests.
