If you see a pink taxi cab roaming the streets of Boston, take a photo of it. The effort may net you a free trip to London. The taxi belongs to The Langham in Boston, a luxury hotel, once the Federal Reserve Bank, that takes its name from the Langham Hotel in London. The specially outfitted pink taxi – the color is Langham's signature shade - was brought from London in November.
The contest ends Jan. 12 and is being held to commemorate the addition of the taxi used to shuttle hotel guests around the city.
Anyone spotting the taxi can snap a photo and upload it to The Langham's Facebook page, and will be automatically entered into a contest to win a London getaway on Virgin Atlantic Airways, which includes air, and three nights at the Langham there, which opened in 1865, reportedly as Europe’s first grand hotel. It lays claim, by its location at the top of Regent Street, to being the most centrally located luxury hotel in London.
The winner will be picked at random and announced on or about Jan. 31. Once you snap a photo of the Langham taxi, upload it at www.facebook.com/langhamboston. You could end up in the London pink.
