PASADENA, Calif.- Langham Hotels International has launched Langham Touch – the world’s first hotel iPhone application that offers voice-enabled travel phrases, ensuring the guest will never get lost in a city where there’s a Langham property.

The voice-enabled phrases, which include directions to each hotel from virtually anywhere in their respective cities, and simple phrases are part of a suite of services that can be accessed at the touch of a screen – allowing users to see and hear the phrases in the city’s local language.

Langham Touch is an all-in-one app that enables the guest to search and view all vital location information without going online which will save on roaming charges. The app includes a mini-city guide and offers insider tips and recommendations for cultural outings, attractions, restaurants and bars. The iPhone app also includes hotlines for room reservations via convenient toll-free lines, essential information for each hotel, as well as the ability to order room service, ask for a wake-up call or make restaurant reservations.

Bob van den Oord, Vice President of Sales & Marketing said, “With Langham Touch, guests will find another innovative way to manage their stay with us from pre-arrival to departure. From the voice-enabled dialogue and city guides through to wake up calls and checking 1865 points, we’ve created an app that’s easy to use, and relevant to today’s business traveler.”

Langham Touch is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch.  Download it at or find it in the Apple app store.
