The Langham, Sydney has re-opened its doors following a redevelopment programme that spanned from August to December 2014.
“We are thrilled with the remarkable transformation of this hotel which is a magnificent addition to our group’s international portfolio,” says Sonia Lefevre, general manager of The Langham, Sydney. “This hotel’s prime location in the heart of the Sydney Rocks district combined with The Langham’s renowned service will produce memorable stays for all our corporate and leisure guests.”
All 98 guestrooms and suites have undergone changes. From the Grand Langham room, which at 49sqm is the largest standard room in Sydney, to the two-bedroom Residence Suite (110sqm) and The Observatory Suite (122sqm), every room now features new design and quality finishes.
Upon entering the newly renovated hotel, guest will first notice a fresh new lobby space that is designed to complement the historical setting of The Rocks district. With ample natural light courtesy of the ceiling to floor glass entrance, the lobby leads through to a central reception desk made of gold leaf cracked porcelain, complete with grand views of the harbour.
Guests can also dine and socialise at Palm Court, which is now adorned with shades of teal and citrus gold. Renowned as the birthplace of the traditional Afternoon Tea experience, Palm Court offers pays homage to this popular tradition that was introduced at The Langham, London 150 years ago.
