Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Mandarin Oriental, Macau is one of the newest hotels in Macau, a bustling city blossoming with new properties. It has maintained that classic, business professional style in a town of glittering lights and slot machines. Since the Mandarin Oriental, Macau is not connected to a casino, every guest is considered a VIP, not just those gambling loads of money. The hotel is rather small, with only 213 rooms, and thus has a personal, boutique-type feel (compared to huge hotels like the Venetian — the Mandarin feels quaint and personalized). We also thought the sound and entertainment system at the Mandarin Oriental was some of the most fun and user-friendly pieces of equipment we have encountered. We tuned to a Grateful Dead station — one of the hundreds satellite radio options available on the TV — and felt like we were actually at Woodstock with the hotel’s stellar surround-sound system.
