Mandarin Oriental, New York

An Asian-inspired New York oasis
VERIFIED LUXURY
Every element at Mandarin Oriental, New York — from the gingko metal design finishes on the revolving doors and elevators to the framed kimonos hanging in the hallways to the Chinese gold throw pillows on the beds in the notably large rooms — reflects a sophisticated Asian aesthetic that recognizes the hotel chain’s Far Eastern heritage while simultaneously capturing the individuality of New York.

What’s more, the Five-Star hotel is dedicated to Asian-style service, which is polished, professional, and unparalleled. From receiving a welcome drink upon arrival to enjoying expert wine service at Four-Star Asiate, the hotel’s signature restaurant serving upscale modern American cuisine, you’ll be pampered at every turn.

The Columbus Circle location ensures that you’re in the thick of the action, just steps from Central Park, Broadway theaters and top-notch museums, but for a little time out in the Big Apple, don’t miss the Five-Star spa.
