Hidden Oasis. These are the two words that immediately come to mind and so accurately describe The Langham Huntington hotel. Nestled at the base of the picturesque San Gabriel Mountains in an upscale, residential area of Pasadena, lies the the unexpected, iconic property of The Langham Huntington where sights, sounds, scents and touches captivate your soul even long after you leave.

Pulling into long driveway and porte cochere you are greeted by friendly faces from the valet dressed in plaid suits and berets. Their welcoming smiles already put you at ease as you stroll though the entrance as soft music plays overhead. Magnificent floral arrangements catch your eye as the sweet fragrance of roses, peonies, and orchids fill the ornate lobby. Check-in is incredibly swift (always a plus), with attentive service and a quick description of the lavish grounds.

The Langham Huntington encompasses 379 rooms, suites and cottages across 23 acres of lush property. We rushed to our Deluxe Premier room excited to begin our stay. The double bed room is well appointed and reflects classic luxury. The grand window overlooking the expansive Horseshoe Garden and city views allows for natural light to fill the room. The tasteful decor is elegant and luxurious, yet also extremely comfortable. The room is complete with every amenity possible from an en-suite Nespresso machine, complimentary bottled waters, welcome cookies and sparkling juice, plush robes and cozy slippers, to toiletries including dental and shaving kits, mouthwash and even hair combs. I was surprised by the vastness of the bathroom which is covered in stunning Italian marble with extensive counter space, separate bathtub, and standing shower. The Deluxe Premier room is more than spacious enough for our family of five and was such a comfortable stay. What surprised me the most is how peaceful and quiet the room was even with our kids with us.

Aside from the serenity of the room, the entire surroundings of The Langham Huntington are so peaceful. As you wander the immense property, the sounds of birds chirping overhead, the majestic fountains spilling over with water, laughter of children in the pool, tennis balls bouncing in the distance all ignite your senses. You see families playing badminton across the Horseshoe Garden, adults playing croquette nearby, couples strolling the trail to the Japanese Garden, and curious children examining the different herbs in the herb garden. There is so much to see on this 23-acre property that the hotel even offers Historic Hotel Property Tours! Everything is picturesque, everything is charming, everything is endearing. So much so that we hardly left the property!

Our meals were pretty much all eaten at The Langham Club Lounge because we honestly didn’t want to nor felt the need to leave the hotel. While the Club Lounge isn’t intended to be a restaurant, it might as well be for the premium selection of food and beverages served throughout the day. For a family, access to The Club Lounge is key because there is something for everyone (even the pickiest eaters) from the extensive continental breakfast in the morning to the light snacks and Afternoon tea (complete with scones and creme fraiche) during the day, to the hors d’oeuvres and cocktails which pretty much could be a meal with the sushi and charcuterie platters they provide, as well as sweet treats and after dinner drinks in the evening. And let’s not forget the large jars of candies and chocolates readily available too! There are so many other services provided with access to The Club Lounge as well. Let’s just say we probably spent as much time relaxing in the sanctuary of The Club Lounge as we did in our suite.

In addition to the delicious treats at The Club Lounge, there are plenty of incredible restaurants at The Langham Huntington too. For more casual, alfresco dining experience with views of the pool and Picture Bridge there is The Terrace. If you haven’t already been to Afternoon Tea at The Langham, it is a must-try experience. This Afternoon Tea tradition is what The Langham brand is most known for and includes delectable tea offerings and sandwiches all served on tailor-made “Langham Rose” Wedgwood teaware in the Lobby Lounge. And if you’re in the mood for something stronger than Afternoon Tea, adjacent to the Lobby Lounge is The Tap Room which features handcrafted cocktails, a diverse wine selection, premium beers on tap, and innovative bar food. And finally for an unbelievable steak dinner, head straight to The Royce Wood-Fired Steakhouse for the finest cuts of meat including Wagyu and Kobe with stunning views of the immaculate garden with seating near the glass-enclosed veranda. As you can see, there are plenty of dining options for everyone here at The Langham Huntington that you really have no reason to leave.

And for those moments we weren’t strolling the immaculate grounds, or relaxing in the comfort of our room and The Club Lounge, we lounged around the pool getting some vitamin D. What I like about this pool is that there are plenty of deck chairs surrounding the pool as well as cabanas, outdoor showers, and a bar in the back for some refreshments. They even have one lane in the pool for more serious swimmers. During summers The Langham Huntington offers fireside s’mores, cocktail specials, and live music on the weekends. My favorite part of the pool is the cutest ice cream cart which hands out frozen treats in the summer. You can bet we had the best time with this darling cart!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at The Langham Huntington amongst the stately grounds with old world charm and lavish details. Every sound from the gentle music to the rustlings of nature, it truly was a hidden oasis and one that has left a memorable mark in our hearts.

By the way, I am totally in LOVE with that cute pink suit on you! So darling <3 xo, sharon

I haven’t seen a hotel with such lovely grounds and with a variety of games to enjoy on site.
I probably wouldn’t want to leave! haha


Jen June 26, 2018 - 9:40 pm

I didn’t even know there was 23 acres to spare in Pasadena! What a lovely hidden oasis. The Langham looks like it’s straight out of England or something. There is so much to see and do outdoors, I mean the courtyard alone is a masterpiece!! I love all your pretty floral dresses and that pink high waisted swim suit! There are so many Instaworthy shots to take which is always a plus in my book!

Babe, are you sure you don’t live there permanently? You look so relaxed and at home when posing around the hotel. Also love how eloquently and almost poetically described arriving to the hotel, giving us a feeling of being with you upon arrival. When settled in I’m, as a history nerd, sure I would take the guided tour of the grounds to begin with, then sit down for their famous afternoon tea (I could live on scones alone!) and end up by the poolside. I’d leave the lane for active swimmers to actual active swimmers though, haha. The suite you had is stunning and so is the view from it. This is what I call a hotel review and should be featured in travel guides. You absolutely sold The Langham Huntington to me!
