This hotel strives to redefine luxury in every way, whether through its five-star VIP Spa Suite, the exclusive ‘Pampered By Appointment’ concierge service, or the breathtaking views of Central Park and the Hudson River.

These vistas provide a truly breathtaking backdrop to the hotel’s suites and signature restaurant Asiate. It is also home to one of New York’s newest culinary hotspots, The Aviary. It is the latest restaurant from genius chef Grant Achatz, a six-time winner of Elite Traveler’s Top 100 Restaurants with Alinea.

Located at the southwest corner of Central Park, the Mandarin Oriental is closely located to two of the city’s best restaurants, Per Se and Masa, making it the go-to destination for gourmands.

Top Suite: Suite 5000

Located on the hotel’s 50th floor, Suite 5000 offers stunning panoramic views across New York from its floor-to-ceiling windows. The space has been designed to display the best of the city’s finest art, fashion and design. Featuring three king bedrooms, the 3,300-square-foot suite feels every bit like a contemporary New York apartment.

The art on the walls is changed regularly and an iPad is provided so guests can learn more about the works. They are also available to purchase for the right price. Although everything about this suite is state-of-the-art, the suite comes with an old-school record player and a diverse vinyl collection assembled by the cult shop Academy Records to celebrate the city’s rich musical history.
