Langham Hotels & Resorts will expand its presence in the United States with three new hotels – Langham Place, Wade Park in Frisco, Texas (pictured); Langham Place, San Francisco; The Langham, Bishop’s Lodge, Santa Fe in New Mexico.
All three hotels will be part of the established Langham Hotels and Resorts brand, the luxury hotel tier of Langham Hospitality Group, representing two styles – The Langham, which represents classic elegance and traditional décor, and the more modern, contemporary Langham Place. All the hotels will offer five-star service and the brand identifiers with which Langham has become synonymous – destination restaurants and bars, full-service spas and luxurious accommodations.
- Langham Place, Wade Park, in Frisco, Texas, will open in early 2018 as part of the Wade Park development, a US$1.6 billion, 175-acre project. The 35-floor hotel will have a sleek and modern feel and feature 25 hotel floors and 10 floors of residences; 250 guest rooms, including several one- and two-bedroom suites and two 2,906-square-foot Presidential Suites; and more than 25,000-square-feet of meeting and convention space, including boutique meeting rooms to accommodate surrounding businesses. There will also be a rooftop pool deck, full-service bar and courtyard.
- Langham Place, San Francisco will be part of the new Transbay Transit Center Project in downtown San Francisco, which promises to become the “Grand Central Station of the West” when it is completed later this year. It’s a US$4.5 billion project encompassing 11 separate local and regional transit systems. Langham Hotels and Resorts will bring a full-service luxury hotel to the development as of 2019.
- The Langham, Bishop’s Lodge, Santa Fe, formerly Bishop’s Lodge, owned by an affiliate of HRV Hotel Partners, will re-open in spring 2018 after a multi-million dollar renovation. Located in the foothills of New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo range of the Rocky Mountains, this historic resort was first opened to the public in the 1920s, but traces its history back to the 1870s when it was first settled by Bishop Jean Baptiste Lamy. It will be Langham Hotels and Resorts’ first resort in the United States, boasting 317 acres, including private stables and trails for horseback riding. The renovation will include the demolition and re-modeling of the existing rooms and public areas at the property, as well as new construction to expand the hotel to 139 rooms and suites.
