You may be tempted to dive right in after you see the beds at Mandarin Oriental, New York. Like nearly all of the amenities at this luxurious Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, the beds are deliriously comfy. Each features a pillow-top mattress with a white-on-white striped duvet from Italian linen maker Fili D’oro and four king-size, overstuffed feather pillows. Decorative touches that lend a modern Asian feeling to the room include two brown-and-gold bolster pillows, two gold-trimmed decorative pillows and a throw blanket with a stitched Chinese pattern in gold and black. Adjustable reading lights in the headboard make it easy to read in bed, whether it’s a bestselling novel or The New York Times, which is delivered to your room each morning. The bed is extremely plush, inviting and — most important — comfortable. It’s exactly what you’ll need after a full day of shopping, dining and sightseeing near the Columbus Circle hotel’s bustling Midtown Manhattan neighborhood.
