This fall the 126-guest room Langford Hotel will open its doors, bringing a new leader in style and hospitality to downtown Miami.

The hotel will encompass 1,140 sq. ft. of event space making for a unique business and event setting. The Langford Hotel, designed by revered commercial design company Bloom Miami, combines old-Miami with the culture inspired by the area’s blossoming business and art district. The structure itself presents a glimmer into the past. It formerly stood as the Miami National Bank and was designated a historic site by the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. Old Miami and European sensibility collide in the fashioned Beaux Arts style of the remodeled 1925-structure. The Langford Hotel is a stylistic reflection of Miami’s diversity.
