The Langham, Boston at 250 Franklin Street in downtown Boston is closing March 31 for an extensive renovation that includes its 318 rooms and suites.

The renovation—which is in connection to a similar overhaul at One Post Office Square next-door—will actually start with the Langham’s BOND bar and lounge. That space is closing at the end of November, a few months ahead of the rest of the hotel. It is scheduled to reopen in 2020.

The revamp is expected to bring out the Langham’s history. Its 96-year-old Renaissance revival building originally housed the Federal Reserve of Boston.

“This renovation will highlight the architectural grandeur of this iconic building, which has a robust history within the city of Boston,” Richard Bussiere, the Langham’s managing director, said in a press release. “When it is completed, we will be able to say without a shadow of a doubt that The Langham is one of the very best luxury hotels in the United States.”
