Just a few steps from Central Park, the Mandarin Oriental, New York has sweeping views of Midtown Manhattan and the Hudson River. Its East Asia origins are apparent in every detail, from Chinese artwork and decor to the perfectly polished Asian-style service. By far the most exclusive accommodation, Suite 5000 spans 3,300 sq ft atop the hotel’s highest floors.
The three-bedroom suite features a coveted art collection, a Swarovski crystal wall and floor-to-ceiling windows with glittering skyline views. The drinking and dining options are not to be missed — Grant Achatz, known as the Willy Wonka of cocktails, opened The Aviary NYC in 2017, while The Office serves rare vintage spirits.
The fine-dining Asiate is a full-blown sensory experience, from the tree-branch sculpture hanging on the ceiling to the foie gras torchon dish and caviar flight.
Top suite: Suite 5000 from $36,000 per night
Spa sanctuary: Visit the spa to enjoy the Ayurvedic Ritual -— a customizable, three-hour, full-body restoration.
