Everything excellent. Extremely caring and friendly staff. Having a member of staff standing by the door ready to open it for guests perhaps a bit over the top but nevertheless a nice touch! A particular mention for the knowledge and helpfulnessof the concierge.

Review collected in partnership with Langham Hospitality Group
What an amazing hotel in a very convenient location. A very short walk to all the action and yet in a very quiet location. Excellent service and very attentive staff. The room was beautifully furnished and nothing was too much trouble. Couldn't be happier.

We stayed at many hotels during our month-long trip to Australia and NZ, and this was by far our favorite, and one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The service was top notch and that's what really put this place above and beyond. We aren't exactly "fancy" people. We don

How long will the construction continue - when over? Is it hotel construction or adjoining property construction? Noisy? Affect views?
Dear Larry, Greetings from The Langham, Sydney and thank you for your query. The Langham is positioned in proximity to Barangaroo, on Sydney's western harbour. The Barangaroo development has progressively increasing in scale since initiating in 2012, and the construction is visible from our Harbourview rooms. Fortunately, the works do not obstruct our view of the water. There is a significant amount of improvement work being done across the city of Sydney, and the Western Harbour has multiple years of development left. Further information on the project can be found on the government run Barangaroo official website. With regard to any guest impact, although the work times are generally kept to business hours, occasionally some out-of-hours work is necessary, and we communicate with the management to minimise the impact of these requirements. I hope this information offers some clarification, and I hope to have the opportunity to welcome you to the Hotel in the near future. Warm regards, Gaylord Lamy General Manager

Is there parking at or around the hotel? We are there for a week and plan to rent a car. Thank you!
Sorry this took so long to answer: we had a car too and they valet park it but it is very convenient and we had no problems. There is some street parking but I do not know the parking rules.

I saw a picture from a guest that showed major construction around your hotel. Would love to stay there, but do not want noise. Thank you
Our room, with balcony faced right into the construction and although they where working, we still didn’t hear a thing. We heard more boat horns than trucks.

What’s the parking situation? Is there valet? Thank you.
Yes valet is the only option, on par with most city hotels.

Is there a bond we have to pay? If so how much is it?
They put a small pending charge on your credit card, maybe $100, but as long as you pay your bill in full, then that charge doesn’t stay on your card.
