Mandarin Oriental, Guangzhou

Glam in the heart of Guangzhou
One of just three Mandarin Oriental properties in mainland China (the others are in Shanghai and Sanya), Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Mandarin Oriental, Guangzhou stands out for its sleek and minimalist look (courtesy of Tony Chi), from the gleaming avant-garde lobby to the guest rooms filled with contemporary Chinese design and clean lines.

Guangzhou is an enormous, sprawling city, but the hotel is smack-dab downtown, within walking distance of two subway lines, and a quick drive from Guangzhou East Rail Station, from which trains to Hong Kong depart.

Mandarin Oriental, Guangzhou is part of a larger retail and office complex called TaiKoo Hui, whose gilded luxury mall can be accessed from within the hotel — if you can bring yourself to leave your room’s plush confines.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The hotel’s spa offers a wide array of therapeutic treatments featuring signature products like Natura Bissé products from Barcelona, Mandarin Oriental’s own signature Quintessence oils and ESPA products from the United Kingdom.
  • The family-friendly hotel offers a host of kid’s amenities including mini-me bathrobes and tumblers in the rooms as well as curated children’s menus at Ebony and through in-room dining. Baby amenities are also available upon request.
  • No one should leave any Mandarin Oriental property without a visit to The Mandarin Cake Shop. Make a beeline straight for the case of macarons that come in a rainbow of mouthwatering flavors, such as Thai chai tea milk chocolate, that changes with the holidays and seasons.
  • The exclusive 24th-floor Oriental Club provides a quiet place to work or relax, with an ample spread of canapés set out daily from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m
Things to Know
  • Inside the fitness center, be sure to try the InBody 520 — it’s like a scale combined with a personal trainer. You’ll find it in every Mandarin Oriental gym, so you can monitor your fitness progress as you travel throughout the year.
  • If you choose to indulge in a luxurious treatment at the Spa, be sure to arrive 45 minutes prior to your appointment to make use of the 82-foot heated pool, steam room and sauna.
  • Opt for a Club Level room to gain access to the Oriental Club Lounge which includes private check-in, daily breakfast, beverage service throughout the day and canapés in the evening.
The Rooms
  • With entry-level accommodations clocking in at about 646 square feet, Mandarin Oriental, Guangzhou sets the standard for the city’s largest rooms.
  • All rooms feature double sinks, walk-in showers with rainforest fixtures and deep, round tubs. Slip into the ultra-plush white robes or request a silk kimono and sink into the room’s comfy bench or leather wingback chair.
  • The luxe marble-filled bathrooms and rich, dark herringbone-patterned hardwood floors contrast nicely with the simple but chic dark neutral seating and carpeting, and crisp, white bedding.
