To mark the anniversary of its opening as Europe’s first Grand Hotel in 1865, The Langham, London premiers The Regent Wing with over 40 renovated guest rooms and suites, designed by Richmond International. The Regent Wing marks the first phase of renovations taking place at the hotel in its 150th year, preceding the launch of The Langham Club Lounge and The Sterling Suite.

Aimed at guests who prefer the feeling of a private residence, The Regent Wing overlooks Langham Place and benefits from a private entrance at the top of Regent Street and direct access to the hotel’s Chuan Spa. The Regent Wing will evoke the feeling of a boutique hotel, with individual styling that reflects the era of the Regency period influenced by historic detailing, with an electic artwork evoking a strong sense of place.

As commented by Duncan Palmer, Managing Director of The Langham, London: “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.”

The 43 Grand Executive rooms, averaging 31 square metres, include modernized discrete technology and Nespresso coffee machines whilst the new Regent Suite occupies an entire floor, and can be booked exclusively, with up to four bedrooms, a private sitting room and kitchenette – perfect for longer stays, larger family gatherings and VIP groups. The Regent Wing also features two additional Studio Suites providing flexible accommodation for parents travelling with children with a dining/kitchenette area.

Whether for corporate travelers valuing extra space and a discrete atmosphere, couples on leisure stays enjoying direct access to central London, or families requiring flexible accommodation options, The Regent Wing heralds a new style of luxury accommodation in London and a preview of further developments at The Langham, London.

Celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2015, The Langham, London was opened in 1865 by HRH The Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) as Europe’s first ‘Grand Hotel’. From the outset it boasted an unrivalled location at the top of Regent Street and this is still true today with an eviable address in the heart of the West End. After an extensive transformation, The Langham has exquisitely appointed guestrooms and suites, classically styled and evoking a warm residential feel with renowned service that bears the hallmarks of the hotel’s rich heritage that spans three centuries.

Palm Court is famed as the birthplace of the afternoon tea tradition, an indulgent ritual that continues today.

In partnership with culinary icons father and son Albert and Michel Roux Jr, Roux at The Landau restaurant (like Artesian, a David Collins designed outlet) sees Roux protégé Chef Chris King create classically-constructed dishes using the finest seasonal ingredients with a contemporary style of presentation. Chuan Spa is a pampering haven and is London’s first luxury hotel spa to incorporate the ancient principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine into its signature treatments and ambience.
