Back in October of 2007, Pasadena's Ritz Carlton was sold to Langham Hotels for $170,000,000 - yes... that's 170 MILLION! Many of us have happy memories of the old Ritz and were quite disappointed when the sale was announced.

Langham Hotel in Pasadena California

Every time, I drive down Oak Knoll Avenue to get to South Lake district, I pass the Langham Hotel and make a mental reminder to go in and visit and see the changes.

June 10th provides an opportunity to do just that. In celebration of Langham Hotels International anniversary of their flagship property in London, Langham Hotel in Pasadena will pay homage to the quintessentially British institution - the afternoon tea.

When The Langham London opened in 1865, the afternoon tea was served for one shilling, six pence.

To celebrate, Langham Hotels around the world will serve afternoon tea on June 10, 2008 for its original price in 1865, which was approximately 15 cents (USD).

Reservations are required since the afternoon tea is expected to sell out quickly. Please call Langham Hotel for more information at 626-568-3900 .
