Langham Hotels International

For those clients, however, who still want all the trappings and traditions of classical luxury, there’s The Langham brand, which offers “‘enchanting hospitality,’” says Van den Oord. “From the finest afternoon tea, to exceptional service with poise. It’s contemporary services delivered with time-honored style.”

Although, he emphasizes, “You can, of course, expect exceptional service whether you’re staying in The Langham or Langham Place.”
