Fodor's Expert Review Langham Place, Fifth Avenue

400 5th Ave., New York, New York 10018, USA See on Map

This towering, limestone-clad Fifth Avenue hotel is an opulent crash pad for anyone in need of some serious pampering. Service is a point of pride and often personalized, as this 57-story hotel is a popular pick for extended-stay guests. For the Midtown Manhattan location, rooms are surprisingly spacious.


Standard rooms begin at a generous 420-square feet, with giant hardwood closets and lovely floor-to-ceiling windows. All rooms are residential in style and offer Nespresso coffeemakers, but suites offer extra conveniences including a kitchenette and private laundry facilities.

Some rooms have striking views of the Empire State Building—ask about availability when booking, if you care about that.

The contemporary lobby has shining floors and ice blue couches surrounding a fireplace. A sweeping spiral staircase leads upstairs to Ai Fiori. Fresh flowers and large-scale modern art are nice accents.

Chef Michael White is behind the Michelin-rated Ai Fiori, a refined restaurant serving three meals a day. The elegant space is worthy of a special date night—don’t miss the excellent pastas. Bar Fiori is less formal and serves small plates alongside glasses of wine and cocktails.

Getting Around

Located on 5th Avenue between 36th and 37th Street, this property is in a busy stretch of Midtown Manhattan. The neighborhood’s shopping and landmarks are on the hotel’s doorstep, and the theater district is within easy walking distance. Subway access is nearby with the B, D, F, and M trains at 42nd Street/Bryant Park and the N, Q, R, and W trains at 34th Street/Herald Square. Taxis and Uber are widely available, but traffic congestion can be a common problem in this neighborhood. Because it's New York City. Sorry.


For a foray into the flavors of Korea, join besotted New Yorkers at Her Name is Han (7-minute walk), a stylish restaurant at the edge of Koreatown. Make a meal out of small plates like lamb sliders and smoked eggplant dip at Pera Mediterranean Brasserie (7-minute walk), a sleek restaurant with a varied wine list. At any time of day (and particularly for weekend brunch) Sarabeth’s is a good idea for their stone oven pizza and comfort classics like chicken pot pie.


Raines Law Room at the William (5-minute walk) is an intimate speakeasy-style bar with curtained off booths and a fun cocktail menu. For a drink with a view, check out Refinery Rooftop (4-minute walk), a bar on top of the Refinery Hotel with Empire State Building views and a terrace with a retractable glass roof.


Big rooms are worth the extra money, especially when divine pasta from Michael White is available through room service. We love the contemporary design, the giant bathrooms, and the lovely spa. Service elevates this property above some of the nearby competition.
