Set in a 1925 beaux arts landmark building (the funkiest part of this property), this old world hotel with a modern twist is a block from a metro station and a ten minute walk from Miami’s Bayfront Park.
Nope, it’s not on Miami beach, but it is centrally located and given its more traditional style, we think it makes a good business stay or if you want to explore more of the cultural aspects of downtown Miami.
Meet The Langford, which offers 126 guest rooms and suites, all with work areas. They have luxe modern bathrooms with glass-enclosed rainfall showers, beds with handcrafted headboards and lovely white oak floors.
All of their rooms offer Wifi, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks and minibars. Suites add sitting areas and upgraded, bi-level suites have separate living rooms with dining areas, and free-standing tubs. Sweet!
The hotel has a chic rooftop bar with a terrace and there’s a fun (and I’d add happy) room where you can have breakfast.
I love the fine touches!! And, who doesn’t love chocolate and a nice bottle of Pinot Noir.

Other public areas add an elegant twist to their decor, which I found both relaxing and modern.
Since I’m a big foodie, I always take my time with dining, so was able to sample their casual bar on the top floor (there are lounge areas with sweeping views of the city), where you can get tapa-like bites and its breakfast in the main restaurant adjacent to the lobby, has fresh fruit and yogurt medleys and freshly made muffins! They also make mean margaritas and cocktails upstairs, which makes it a fun stop for those who want to toast with friends while overlooking a nice city view.
