The location of the Langham in Sydney is not on a level with some other five star hotels in the city but is a splendid hotel. Small in comparison with most of the high rise hotels, it excels at being a wonderful five star establishment. The staff are impeccable and the standard

This was our stop in Sydney. We had stayed at their Auckland hotel and were not looking forward to this one if it was anything like the last. We were very pleasantly surprised. These two hotels are miles apart. The Sydney Hotel is head and shoulders above Auckland in all areas

Dear Penelopewms, Thank you for taking the time to complete this review regarding your experience at The Langham, Sydney. Your feedback is particularly important in helping us to achieve our goal of 100% guest satisfaction. Upon reading your review I was pleased to learn that you enjoyed your stay at the hotel, however, I was concerned to learn that the dinner did not meet your expectations. As a five-star hotel this is unacceptable and does not reflect the usual high quality we pride ourselves of. Please be assured, I have passed your comments to the Food and Beverage Manager and Executive Chef to ensure the standards of our meals are both memorable and enjoyable so this is not an issue going forward. I sincerely apologise for the disappointment this may have caused you and thank you for bringing it to our attention. On behalf of our entire team at The Langham, Sydney we thank you for your support and I hope we can welcome you back to the Hotel in the near future. Kind regards, Gaylord Lamy General Manager The Langham, Sydney

We were fortunate enough to book this lovely hotel after reading all the great reviews. From start to finish, the staff were helpful, friendly, and attentive. We spent two great nights in a harbor view room/suite and felt like it was truly a home away from home. The hotel itself

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

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.

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.

Yes valet is the only option, on par with most city hotels.

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.
