Langham Hotel in Chicago amazes kids and adults alike

As my husband and 6-year-old twins entered our room at the Langham Hotel, we were both thinking the same thing: Why wasn’t this one of the overnights when we left the girls with the grandparents? The beauty and aura of romance exuding from the Langham really can’t be overstated.

Langham Hotel

  • 330 N. Wabash Ave., Chicago

When I say this place has a wow factor, I mean it literally. For the adults, the wow began with the gorgeously appointed room. For the girls, they mouthed “wow” when we went to swim in the sparkling 67-foot pool under a ceiling of twinkling lights. Plus, the pool is surrounded with floor-to-ceiling windows, making for a breathtaking view of the city.

Ultimately, we were thrilled we didn’t steal a night away from the girls because they would have missed out on an exquisite experience.

There is a Kids Suite, an inventive, generously sized play space perfect for entertainment on rainy or cold days or a pre-bedtime treat.

The book shelves are filled. Tiny tables are neatly furnished with activity books and crayons. Game-playing kids will have a blast with a lively round of Trouble, Monopoly or Candyland. Little ones will appreciate the line of rocking horses and gigantic chalkboard.

The Langham makes movie night easy for families. Given a wide array of family-friendly flicks, the movies of choice are delivered along with a DVD player. We snuggled in bed with the curtains open, simultaneously watching the city lights and “Brave.” Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, the doorbell rang and gigantic chocolate chip cookies and milk were delivered.

Definitely schedule an overnight with the kids at The Langham. Better yet, if you need a bit of romance rekindling, leave them at home.
