Love from Boston
First and foremost, we at The Langham, Boston want to thank the first responders, essential workers and medical professionals for everything that they have done over these past few weeks. Times have certainly been tough. People around the globe have had to put their lives on hold due to this terrible virus. However, we are so proud of everyone in the community who has managed to bring out the good, no matter how small, during these difficult times. Here are a few things that have helped keep our chins up here in Boston.
Over the past few weeks, buildings across the city have been lighting up their exteriors with signs of hope, such as hearts and colored lights as a way to brighten the evenings of those essential workers who may be walking home. “This idea, #LoveFromBoston, is dedicated to all those individuals on the front lines of this fight in Massachusetts and across the world,” said Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau President & CEO Martha J. Sheridan. “From first responders and healthcare professionals, to the sick and suddenly unemployed, and to all those residing in lonesome quarantine, this message is for you. And given how hard-hit our industry has been by this pandemic, it’s fitting that our Boston and Cambridge hotels were the ones to initiate this.” Here at The Langham Boston, we lit up our exterior with some #LanghamPink hearts and we hope they have put a smile on a few faces.

2). Our Beautiful City
Luckily, the weather has been cooperating lately. While all non-essential businesses have been closed for several weeks in Boston, our parks and walking paths have remained open for passive exercise, such as walking and jogging. For those who live downtown, a stroll down the Esplanade or around the Public Garden has been a great way to relive stress after a day of working from home. And with many public parks just minutes from The Langham Boston, we’re so happy to see our neighbors taking full advantage of the fresh air to enjoy our city’s blooming trees and flowers.

Boston has one of the most vibrant food scenes in the country and while that food scene is a little different these days, lots of local restaurants are still serving up some tasty bites. Every neighborhood has its own takeout options, with everything from sushi to pizza to fine dining on offer. With birthdays and anniversaries coming and going during quarantine, our ‘new normal’ has often included some special treats via takeout and our chefs and restauranteurs have not disappointed.
