Reviving the spirited, sociable heyday of Downtown Miami, the boutique Langford Hotel stakes its claim as the area’s first historic hotel. Housed within the 1925 Miami National Bank, this iconic Beaux-Arts architectural treasure has been completely reinvented for a new generation of sophisticated travelers. From elegant accommodations to a rooftop bar that’s destined to recall the excitement and glamour of prohibition-era Miami, this elegant SE 1st Street newcomer is set to redefine Downtown Miami and become a mecca for the world’s trendsetters in fashion, film, food and the arts. Situated inside the Langford Hotel, a remodeled 1925 Beaux Arts–style building designated a historic site by the National Register of Historic Places, PB Station is the latest from the awfully busy Pubbelly Restaurant Group, which seems to open a couple spots each year. This is its first mainland location, and the menu veers to what they call American cuisine that pushes the boundaries of “comfort classics.” That means items such as California seaweed-based pappardelle with smoked brisket, local Swiss chard and dry shiitake jus, and a modernized take on charcuterie with octopus pepperoni, shrimp mortadella, king crab terrine, crispy cod brandade and Thai lobster sausage.

According to Urban Daddy :
“Conditions are perfect for the Langford Hotel, a new Downtown relaxateria that would like for you to drink in its rooftop lounge, sprawl out in its penthouse suite and generally leisure better than your peers. It’s open now. Regardless of how you choose to play this, you’ll want to allow yourself some time to take in all of the beaux arts splendor of this 1925 bank turned hotel. The ’20s-era molding. The marble. The original US Postal Service letterbox. When you make your entrance, you’ll be ushered to the second-floor Sky Lounge, adjacent to a cozy curated library, to check in and grab a quick cup of coffee. Assuming you’re checking in, that is. Actually, you’re checking in. We just decided that you’re checking in. Because when life hands you a 1,400-square-foot, two-story penthouse suite, you make… whatever it is you’re inclined to make out of such things.”
According to Travel Weekly :
“Located in a newly restored, 1920s-era bank building that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the hotel expects to cater prominently to business travelers who have meetings in Miami’s urban core, including at the nearby courthouses. Among the Langford’s lodgings is a two-level penthouse apartment, which can be rented with between one and four bedrooms. In building the hotel, developer Stambul USA aspired to preserve the old City National Bank’s historical feel while adding hip amenities. Rooms have furnishings that evoke various decades of the building’s life, including 1920s-style sinks, 1940s-era valet stands and headboards in 1950s style.” written by Robert Silk.
