If money is no object, you might be tempted to splash out on a luxury suite the next time you visit the UK’s capital city.
The Langham London, which we recently reviewed, boasts a fabulous penthouse-style apartment, the Sterling Suite, where the champagne flows freely and a butler is on call 24/7.
Let’s take a look around…
As we mentioned in our review, The Langham is in a great spot – just a stone’s throw away from the shopping on Regent Street and Bond Street, and walking distance from bustling Soho, where there’s countless dining and nightlife outlets.
The Langham opened in 1865 and considers itself to be the oldest ‘grand hotel’ in London.
The best room in the house is the 450sqm Sterling Suite, which offers up to six bedrooms and sleeps up to 12 guests. Reported to be the largest suite in the capital, it was renovated in 2015 to coincide with the hotel’s 150th anniversary.
After walking through an entrance lobby bigger than most regular London hotel rooms, you’ll find that every conceivable luxury awaits you inside the suite, which is decked out in a white and gold colour scheme.
Your choice of welcome amenities will already have been set up and a butler will be at your beck and call 24/7.
Marble and antique mirrors feature in the main bathroom, where you’ll also find a deep bathtub – the ideal sanctuary after a tiring shopping trip on Bond Street.
After that, you could spend some time relaxing in the media lounge, before you take your place at the dining table for a delicious dinner served by your butler.
You’ll find a huge walk-in wardrobe located just off the main bedroom.
Depending on your needs, the master bedroom can be extended by making use of up to three adjoining rooms. While they are also sold separately as lower-grade, ‘deluxe’ rooms, there’s nothing low grade about them.
Guests staying in The Sterling Suite will also have access to the The Langham Club, where afternoon tea is served and champagne flows freely.
There’s no need to mingle with other guests when it’s time to leave, as you’ll be using your own private lifts.
As you’d expect, all this luxury comes at a price – The Sterling Suite sells for around £24,000 (USD 30,000) a night, depending on the length of stay and how many bedrooms you need.
According to staff at the hotel, demand for the suite is greatest during the summer months, so you might have more luck during winter if you’re keen to check in.
