We've been chronicling the story of The Langham Chicago since it was first announced in early 2011. But now that the big opening day is just a little over two weeks away, we thought it best to chat up general manager Bob Schofield about The Best Room to Book.

Fortunately, all 316 rooms at the Langham are good rooms to book. That's because the hotel's Grand rooms start at 516-sq.ft. and feature king or double beds, 55-inch flat-screen TVs (the largest in the city, Schofield said), master lighting controls, both a shower and a tub and a "reveal wall", a glass partition that separates the bathroom from the bedroom but goes opaque at the touch of a button. The rooms also include complimentary amenities such as internet, Nespresso machines, and free overnight pressing for up to three clothing items.

Still, Schofield told us best rooms to book are the Langham Grand River View Rooms, specifically the ones that end in 02 (502, 602, etc.) As you can guess, these rooms have views of the Chicago River but also the lake as well, thanks to their position in the southwest corner of the hotel.

If you'd rather more premium amenities to go with your room view, you can book one of the Langham Club Rooms which will give you access to the 4,000-sq.ft. Langham Club Lounge on the 13th floor where you can indulge in complimentary breakfast, light lunchtime snack, afternoon tea and cocktails and butler service. The club even offers showers for guests who are early to check-in or have checked out and have a long wait for their flight. Plus, the Langham Club Rooms also feature toiletries from the hotel's Chuan spa including body scrub, bath salts and a loofah.

Wanna go even higher? The Langham Chicago also has 48 suites starting with the Junior suite and going up to the Infinity and Regent suites which Schofield said have panoramic views of the river and the lake as well. Decisions, decisions, decisions! All good ones to make though.

Right now the hotel is offering a "Linger Longer" special on opening night where you stay two nights and get 15 percent off the best available rate. That works out to be about $380 a night. Langham Club rooms start at $436 on opening night. But if you want that room ending in -02, we suggest you call the hotel and personally request your room preference.
