A Safe Smart Summer Road Trip

Summer is finally here, and road trips are all the rage! Fortunately, in the Northeast, infections have started to flatten, so safe, responsible travel is starting to resume. To celebrate this, The Langham Hotels & Resorts has rolled out a new program called, “Safe Smart Summer at The Langham,” which offers guests some great deals for upcoming trips

This advance purchase offer gives guests 10% off the best available rate offered at each US hotel through Labor Day. In addition to the discount the package includes complimentary parking and either a $50 USD food and beverage credit (for room bookings) or $100 USD credit (for suite bookings.) And to give guests the ultimate in peace of mind, these bookings are fully refundable until 24 hours prior to check-in. All US Langham hotels are participating, including our friends in Chicago, Pasadena and New York. So while we are still working on our revamp,  The Langham, Chicago; The Langham Huntington, Pasadena and The Langham, New York, Fifth Avenue are ready to welcome guests this summer!

Bostonians who are itching to get out of town for the weekend should consider a visit to New York City, now that the Big Apple is re-opening to tourism from selected states, and which, at only 3.5 hours away, is an ideal weekend road trip destination. Many attractions have opened back up, including: the Empire State Building Observation Deck, Liberty Island, Governor’s Island, The HighLine, the Bronx Zoo, the Central Park Zoo, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and the New York Botanical Garden. There are also some great open-air experiences to enjoy this summer—and since they are all outdoors the fresh air and the social distance available for all visitors makes them responsible (and fun!) choices during an NYC excursion.

Speaking of social distancing, The Langham, New York, Fifth Avenue has made the art of staying six feet apart a bit more luxurious. The property just launched their new Terrace Rooms and Suites. Terrace guests have access to semi-enclosed private outdoor spaces, available in six rooms at the hotel. These are perfect for guests who want to enjoy New York in privacy. They are also large enough for a small gathering, including private fitness instruction, an outdoor family game night, or a date night with a nice bottle of wine under the city lights.

Another new addition to the hotel’s offerings at the Langham in New York is the Celebrations Cart. The Celebrations Cart aims to bring just the right dose of the “Celebrate the Everyday” vibe to summer guests. Guests can request the Celebrations Cart during any stay and the amenity can be customized to feature a variety of wines and spirits, complete with cocktail tools for “make-your-own” drinks and a selection of sweet and savory treats from the kitchen. And for couples eloping in New York this summer, we can’t think of a better way to celebrate after saying ‘I Do!”

All of our hotels, The Langham, New York included, have implemented rigorous health and safety measures to ensure the well-being of all guests. All high-touch areas like: door handles, elevator buttons, hand rails, telephones and remote controls are disinfected throughout the day and each guest room is thoroughly sterilized prior to each stay. Other precautions like the addition of hand sanitizer stations and taking temperature readings of all guests, colleagues and vendors have also been put into place. The safety of our guests and colleagues is our top priority as we welcome everyone back to our hotels once again!
