Pasadena, one of the iconic cities in California, conjures up memories of the Rose Parade on New Year's Day. No matter who you are you have witnessed that parade and all of the majesty that goes with it at some point.

As a visitor there is only one place that can match all of the glory that is Pasadena and that is the Langham Huntington Hotel.
The Langham takes you back in time, not only through the magnificent history of this hotel, but also to the classic feel that the Langham has created along with the world-class service that guests were treated to throughout history when visiting such a fine travel destination.
