Mandarin Oriental Review

The Mandarin's commitment to excess is evident in the lobby, on the 35th floor of the Time Warner Center, where dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows look out over Columbus Circle and Central Park. Guest rooms are outfitted with silk throws on plush beds, comfy robes, and windowside chaise longue for admiring the skyline. It's the suites, though, that really set the Mandarin apart, by giving the Asian-influenced decor enough space to truly dazzle. The swimming pool is one of the city's best, with panoramic Hudson River views; and the spa, with a menu of lush treatments based on traditional Chinese medicine, is a destination for hotel guests and New Yorkers alike.

Above the bustling Time Warner Center, starting on the 35th floor, the Mandarin provides a serenely insulated perch for viewing the city. Rooms are a sumptuous treat, with silk throws, plush beds, and marble-clad baths. The swimming pool is one of the city's best, with panoramic Hudson River views. Spa treatments here cover an international menu of massage styles.

    Great Service, Great Location

    The Mandarin Oriental is one of the best places to stay in NYC. It's location next to the park, shopping and to Broadway is perfect. The pool is a great way to end a busy day of seeing the sites. Breakfast is amazing, as strange as it sounds they have a great oatmeal!
