Langham Lands in New York

Setai Fifth Avenue, Langham Place New York

Langham fans will be pleased to learn that they’ll soon have an address in Midtown Manhattan to rest their weary heads. As reported by USA Today’s Hotel Check In blog, the Hong Kong-based hospitality group has acquired the Setai Fifth Avenue, formerly operated by Capella Hotels & Resorts. Starting in January 2013, the hotel will be a Langham Place.

No word yet on changes to the facilities at this swank property (where Duxiana mattresses are draped with Pratesi linens, Ai Fiori restaurant draws the crowds, and a Maserati whisks guests around town.) This will be Langham’s fourth hotel in the U.S. and the 14th hotel worldwide. Up next: The Langham Chicago. For more information, visit
