The Langham’s Signature suites offer exceptionally indulgent experiences for even the most elite travellers. Adorned with peonies on every table, a spectacular semi-circular living room, and unbeatable views of the All Saints Church, the Infinity Suite lives up to its name, delivering Infinity (and beyond). The 2540sqft suite is one of the finest suites up for grabs at The Langham. Living up to its pledge of a perfect night’s sleep, The Langham’s new partnership with Hastens has heightened what it means to dream the day away. The 170-year-old Swedish brand Hastens is known for its perfected art of designing luxury beds. Walking through the double doors of the Infinity Suite’s master bedroom, you will be greeted with a mattress with 37 heavenly layers of comfort.

Stylish Eats

Where better to have afternoon tea than at the birthplace of the timeless tradition? The Langham’s palm court treats guests with perfectly prepared pastries, savoury sandwiches and cushiony scones on the side of floral-adorned china for that VIP experience. But this isn’t the only culinary gem at the Langham; the iconic Michel Roux Jr oversees all the hotel’s dining, including their award-winning British tavern, The Wigmore, which offers reimagined British eats. A fan favourite is the signature starter of the classic British scotch egg; Michel Roux Jr’s masala spiced scotch egg is one for the tastebuds sitting on a bed of daal relish and a coating of crispy vermicelli. This spot is noted the best by native Londoners, offering their much beloved British comfort food treats in a classic interior. Last but by no means least, Artesian is the hotel’s sophisticated cocktail spot that held the title of the world’s best bar for 5 years. It offers guests a chic atmosphere, 5-star service, and dazzling drinks.
