Situated in the heart of downtown Boston financial district, Langham Hotel Boston is an updated, yet historic, luxury hotel. Originally the Federal Reserve Bank, this AAA four diamond property is a national architectural landmark.
The Langham Hotel Boston is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World and a hotel under Langham Hotels International.
The Langham, Boston is a 1922 renaissance revival style building. When it was first built it served as the Federal Reserve Bank, established by President Woodrow Wilson. The building was designed by R. Clipston Sturgis to look like the Palazzo della Cancelleria, in Rome, with its granite exterior, life-size equestrian statues, and painted dome ceiling.
Formerly the Governor's Reception room, The Wyeth Room contains two historic N.C. Wyeth murals. The Governor's Rooms contain a Norman B. Leventhal map collection of historic Massachusetts maps. As the hotel was previously a bank, the first floor has long, skinny windows as to keep the building safe from intruders. The original entry-way doors off Pearl Street still contain the gold coin moldings, and the bank vault is now used as a pastry kitchen. The Wyeth Room now houses the four large lamps with gold coin emblems that used to be at the Pearl Street entrance.
The hotel used the be Le Meridien Hotel of Boston, but was branded a Langham Hotel in January 2003.
The Langham has 318 rooms, including 17 suites. Rooms facing Pearl Street have a view of Norman B. Leventhal Park at Post Office Square.
The Langham has several restaurants on-site. Café Fleuri serves breakfast and lunch and features a Saturday Chocolate Bar and award-winning Sunday Brunch (both Sept-Jun). BOND restaurant and lounge  offers afternoon tea and cocktails for lunch and dinner along with small plates. The Langham also has a spa, Chuan Body + Soul.
