Expert Review

With floor-to-ceiling windows in every guestroom that overlook Central Park to the east or the Hudson River to the west (though some units on the lower floors tout city views), Manhattan’s Mandarin Oriental could probably sell rooms based on its stellar real estate alone. Lucky for guests, the hotel’s five-star amenities impress as much as the vistas. The 248 stylishly appointed rooms and suites boast the usual luxury offerings – flat-screen TVs, rain showers, and dual vanities (in most units) – but it’s the little, complimentary extras that really stand out. Through its Bedside Reading Program, the hotel stocks nightstands with new releases for travelers to read (and keep!), while athletes can enlist running coaches to guide them on iconic Central Park jogs. And the 36th-floor, full-size swimming pool boasts both stunning Hudson River views and enough space for a real workout. Next door, the 14,500-feet spa draws big shots to its VIP Spa Suite, a fully enclosed two-person relaxation room with a private bath. On the 35th floor, Asiate tempts with an award-winning wall of wine and contemporary Asian dishes – alongside those same jaw-dropping panoramas of the park.
