Entitled – The Langham Hotel.
Below the picture reads:
The Langham Hotel. – The portion of Regent Street after Oxford Street is crossed ends in the Church of All Souls, Langham Place. Beyond this some trees on the right mark what was once the gardens of Foley House, which was made a freehold by the Duke of Portland in exchange for the permission to build north of it, such building on the Portland estate having been expressly forbidden by the stipulations of the lease. Foley House was demolished in 1820 for the formation of Langham Place, so-called after the adjoining mansion, which belonged to Sir James Langham. The turn of the street here, which places Regent Street and Portland Place on a differnt line, was made to spite Sir James Langham, who had quarrelled with Nash as to the architect of his house. For it was originally part of Nash’s design, in building Regent Street, that that great thoroughfare should lead straight through and beyond Portland Place to a magnificent palace to be built for George IV. in Regent’s Park. That splendid street of mansions known as Portland Place commences at the Langham Hotel, and practically connects Regent Street with Regent’s Park; it is one-third of a mile long, no less than 130ft. wide, and was designed by the brothers Adam. The magnificent Langham Hotel was commenced in 1863, and cost upwards of £500,000; its principal facade is more than 200ft. long, and it contains 600 rooms. The “Langham” was opened in 1865, the Prince of Wales being present at the Luncheon. This palatial hotel is patronized by the best English families, and very extensively by visitors from the United States. The great dining-room is more than 100ft. long; and, all things considered, the “Langham” is entitled to a place in the very front rank of our great hotels.
