When you're after a classic luxury hotel experience, this riverside hotel with towering views of the city is for you
The Langham is the definition of the classic luxury hotel experience. If you can shell out for the Executive Rooms, absolutely go for it, you’ll get a stunning bird’s eye view of Melbourne’s famous skyline, the bustling rail lines of Flinders Street Station, and the Yarra River. But for the ultimate luxe hotel stay, opt for the Executive Terrace Room is available so you can lounge in your own private terrace overlooking the Yarra and the Southbank precinct.
The CBD's riverside bars and restaurants are just a short walk away, as are tram and train lines that go all over the city, but if you prefer to embrace the luxury experience in the comfort of the hotel, guests to the Executive Rooms have access to Langham Club privileges which includes access to an exclusive club lounge on the 24th floor where you can enjoy a continental breakfast, a classic afternoon tea and even drinks before dinner. Stick around for dinner at the Melba, the Langham’s fine dining buffet restaurant, where you can feast on the freshest seafood to start, peruse the range of seasonal dishes, and finish with the impressive dessert range.
Before you check out, take a dip in the indoor 15-metre pool inside the Langham’s blissful Chuan Spa.
Time Out tip: Guests with club privileges should make the most of the butler service – including complimentary shoe shining and garment pressing for when you need to look on point. Plus, tea sommeliers are most definitely a thing at the Langham– and you’ll find them at the Langham’s elegant high tea, where house-made pastries are served on Wedgewood tea ware. You don't even have to be a guest to take advantage of the afternoon tea offering, which is available on Monday to Friday from $59 per person.
