The Langham London has unveiled its new Regent Wing, created to celebrate the hotel’s milestone 150th anniversary.
The luxury hotel has renovated more than 40 guest rooms and suites, transforming each one to have a more ‘boutique’ feel, to mark the anniversary of it opening in 1865 as Europe’s first ‘Grand Hotel’.
The transformation of The Regent Wing is the first phase of developments planned to commemorate the hotel’s birthday, preceding the launch of The Langham Club Lounge and The Sterling Suite scheduled for this spring.
The Regent Wing is aimed at guests seeking a more private residence, with access through a private entrance at the top of Regent Street and a direct connection to the hotel’s Chuan Spa.
The guestrooms have been designed by Richmond International to evoke the feeling of a boutique hotel, with bespoke styling that reflects the era of the Regency period.
Paul Walters, general manager of The Langham, London said: “The new wing marks the first phase of our renovation; the largest since our re-launch in 2009. The design is a clear nod to the heritage of our building with classic elements merging with modern touches. Moreover, the wing captures the essence of the hotel’s history and its projected future.”
Averaging 31 square metres, the 43 grand executive rooms include modern technology and Nespresso coffee machines, while the new Regent Suite occupies an entire floor, and can be booked exclusively, with up to four bedrooms, a private sitting room and kitchen.
