I feel like a spoiled brat when I want to escape our beautiful home in sunny Santa Barbara, but sometimes a girl needs to get away for some much-needed self-care. If you’re like me and seeking a lavish escape without straying too far from home, a luxury staycation at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, Los Angeles is the perfect indulgence.

My husband and I both have stressful jobs so we were excited to have a weekend getaway to the Langham Hotel.

If you’re a fan of the show Downtown Abbey like we are, the hotel feels like traveling back in time. It’s absolutely gorgeous from the outside!

With its rich history, exceptional value, delightful perks, and a plethora of amenities, the Langham Hotel offers an exquisite retreat for locals and travelers alike.

A Legacy of Luxury: The History of Langham

Are you a history nerd? If yes, then you’ll love that the Langham Hotel holds a storied past that adds to its allure.

It was originally built in 1907 as the Wentworth Hotel, and it quickly established itself as a symbol of luxury and sophistication.

Throughout the hotel, there are photos of the fancy rich folks hanging out and having tea. Take a walk and look around! You are now a piece of history!

Throughout the years, the hotel has had various renovations, eventually becoming The Langham Huntington in 2008.

Today, when you walk into the hotel lobby you may even feel like Julia Roberts did in the movie Pretty Woman! I know I felt like that the first time I was there!!

Luxury staycation at Langham Hotel in Pasadena

When it comes to luxury hotels, the Langham Hotel in Pasadena is unrivaled.

Since my husband and I have traveled a great deal, we’ve stayed at a variety of hotels. One of our most unique experiences was our Glamping trip at the Getaway House in Big Bear!

In general, what’s important to us is that our room offers a comfortable bed, a nice shower, and a proper view.

I’m pleased to share that the opulent rooms and suites are meticulously designed with elegant furnishings, plush bedding, and breathtaking views.

There are 380 classically furnished guest rooms, suites, and cottages on the enormous property.

We stayed in the superior king room (basic room) as well as the deluxe room. It’s worth it to pay a little bit more for the deluxe because it’s more spacious.

If you want to go all out, you can reserve one of the executive suites and use the Langham Club which offers breakfast, light refreshments, and other exclusive benefits.

Each room features flat-screen TVs, Italian marble bathrooms, coffee makers, complimentary high-speed Internet, Chuan Spa toiletries, and comfortable bathrobes and slippers.

Although the Langham Hotel prides itself in offering luxurious amenities, it’s not pretentious or snooty.

I promise that once you start unwinding, you’ll feel right at home and have a memorable staycation experience.

The Chuan Spa: delightful perk for an unforgettable stay

From the moment you step foot in the Langham Hotel, you’ll be treated to an array of delightful perks.

We recently discovered that as hotel guests we are able to use the exclusive Chuan Spa for FREE!!!

If you know me personally, you know that I LOVE FREE STUFF!

The Chuan Spa is spectacular and I highly recommend that you spend a few hours unplugging and unwinding in this oasis of relaxation.

Once you check in at the spa, the friendly receptionist will give you a tour and show you the co-ed sections as well as the individual men’s and women’s sections.

The individual sections have a whirlpool jacuzzi, a steam room, and a sauna. There are plush robes that you can wear so you can sit in the co-ed sections and have complimentary snacks and tea.

Feeling sleepy? There’s this amazing Dream Room with several beds and curtains so you can have privacy while you take a nap.

The serene beauty of the Japanese Gardens

One of my favorite experiences was the Japanese gardens at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena.

It’s a hidden gem and transports you to a serene and harmonious world.

Inspired by traditional Japanese garden design principles, the meticulously crafted gardens offer a peaceful retreat from the outside world.

I loved the graceful bridges and calming water features, which created a sense of balance and tranquility. It reminded me of the benefits of a luxury staycation at Langham Hotel in Pasadena.

It’s a perfect place to meditate, read a book and pretend that you’re in Japan.

You can immerse yourself in the beauty of nature and find solace in the Zen atmosphere. In doing so, you’re embracing a sense of serenity that will rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul.
