All of the hotels will offer five-star service and the brand identifiers with which Langham has become synonymous – destination restaurants and bars, full-service spas and luxurious accommodations.

  • Langham Place, Wade Park, located in Frisco, Texas, will open in early 2018 as part of the Wade Park development, a $1.6 billion, 175-acre project created by Thomas Land & Development.
