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. Riverside bars and restaurants are just a short walk away, as are tram and train lines around Melbourne, but if you prefer to embrace the luxury experience, guests to the executive rooms have access to Langham Club privileges which includes access to an exclusive lounge on the 24th floor where you can enjoy a continental breakfast, a classic afternoon tea and drinks before dinner. Stick around for a meal at the Melba, the Langham’s fine dining buffet restaurant, where you can feast on fresh seafood to start 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: Tea sommeliers are most definitely a thing – and you’ll meet them at the Langham’s elegant high tea, where house-made pastries are served on Wedgewood teaware. Plus, 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 for date night.
