The design style of Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is sleek and modern, with Asian flair and a sense of history. Rooms at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel have two distinct looks. Veranda rooms are light and airy, with a white wood-paneled section of the rooms that used to be a terrace, but now house an oversized settee and workspace. Taipan rooms are more traditional, masculine and business-like with their dark tones and leather chairs. Suites are immaculate with freestanding, deep, oval bathtubs and cocoon-like bedrooms encased in hardwood and richly colored silk wall panels and bedding. The circa 1963 hotel’s public spaces received the same painstaking restoration in 2006 as did the guest rooms, with the two-story grand lobby and its dangling, sparkling chandeliers as attractive as ever.
