Review: Mandarin Oriental New York
At MO properties, the dedication to elevating guests’ experiences is well-known, and this ethos extends seamlessly to their New York outpost. The arrival, in particular, showcases the pinnacle of their service excellence. Stepping onto the ground floor, you’re greeted by a team already poised to assist with your luggage, ensuring a seamless transfer directly to your room as you complete the check-in process on the 35th-floor lobby. The reception area exudes a warm welcome, creating an immediate sense of belonging. Upon my check-in, a team member kindly escorted me to my room, where I found a warm welcome letter and informative materials about the property and the destination, setting the stage for a wonderful start to my stay. In just moments, my luggage and thoughtful amenities arrived, exemplifying the hotel’s attentive care. The staff’s readiness to provide guests valuable insights, travel advice, ticket assistance, and reservations at Manhattan’s finest restaurants further underscores their commitment to ensuring your stay in the city is nothing short of extraordinary.
This property in New York features everything you’d expect from Mandarin Oriental Hotels: a magnificent spa, indoor swimming pool, and comprehensive fitness studio. The spa is located on floors 35 and 36 and has been designed to reflect the exceptional levels of attention and standards of service that are intrinsic to Mandarin Oriental worldwide. It offers many special treatments that are perfect for someone looking to relax! The indoor swimming pool and the gym are located on the 36th floor. It’s easily possible to spend hours in the pool, enjoying breathtaking views of New York through its floor-to-ceiling glass windows!
Asiate is Mandarin Oriental’s signature restaurant, located on the same floor as the lobby. While New York is renowned for its cuisine, the restaurant is a hit with both guests and locals alike. It boasts a stylish décor and offers a menu featuring modern American cuisine. The Tasting Menu is a great option to experience the highlights of Asiate. The dishes are artistically presented and not to be missed, particularly the Almond Dacquoise, a white chocolate mousse with almond praline, for dessert!
Rooms and Suites
The rooms and suites are quite spacious and have floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing 360º views of the northern Manhattan skyline, and Central Park. The décor is contemporary and stylish! When you return to the hotel at night, you’ll find everything perfectly organized in your room, along with a paper on your bed indicating the weather for the next day and three suggestions for how you can spend your time in New York. In the morning, a daily newspaper is delivered to your room.
This hotel is perfect for people who prefer to stay close to Central Park. You can step out of the hotel and be right there! It’s also an excellent option for people who are traveling for shopping. It’s only a few blocks from famous shopping areas of Manhattan like 5th Avenue and Times Square! Mandarin Oriental and The Shops at Columbus Circle are located side by side, which makes your life much easier if you’re at the hotel and need to buy something. The rooms are quite spacious, and as expected from a MO property, the service is impeccable!
