Boston's historic Langham hotel is in the midst of a multimillion-dollar makeover. The 312-room property, housed in what was once the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, plans to reopen in early 2021. The renovation was scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2020 but has been delayed due to local mandates to halt construction.

The head-to-toe transformation will include renovations to the hotel lobby, all guest rooms and its 13,000 square feet of event space. Architectural firm Dyer Brown is working with interior design company Richmond International to refresh the property, while maintaining its original architectural features. 

The guest rooms and suites will be updated with new marble-clad bathrooms and New England-inspired décor. The Governor's Room, which can accommodate boardroom-style meetings, will be outfitted with a mahogany table and historic maps of the local area, sourced from the Boston Public Library. The Lincoln Ballroom, which can hold as many as 200 people, will feature a natural skylight surrounded by chandeliers. Updates to the Wilson Ballroom are also anticipated, although they are expected to wrap up after the official reopening; details are pending. 

The Club Lounge, a signature amenity of the Langham Hotels & Resorts brand that offers private space and exclusive access for Club members, will also be revamped. A new bar and restaurant with an outdoor terrace will round out the hotel's offerings.

"As the process of reinvigorating this landmark property with new life continues, it is exciting to watch the hotel's new features come to life," said Michele Grosso, managing director of the Langham, Boston. "This renovation will highlight the architectural grandeur of this iconic building, and will also launch the Langham as a new American classic within the luxury hotel industry."
