Mandarin Oriental New York

Official star rating:
Towering over Columbus Circle at the south-west corner of Central Park, where midtown joins the Upper West Side, this grand hotel offers park views and excellent access to theatre, central park and Fifth Avenue shopping.
Typical of Mandarin Oriental properties, it basks in its luxurious, if mildly conservative, atmosphere, and offers its traditional, faultless brand of Asian-inspired design and faultless service. There’s a big indoor swimming pool and huge gym with amazing views, and a destination lounge for afternoon tea overlooking Central Park.
As good as Manhattan five stars get, and in the perfect location – walking distance to New York’s top attractions.
Columbus Circle below the hotel is a busy but attractive roundabout, with fountains and a statue of the explorer, and traffic whizzing to and from the Upper West side. Pedestrians buzz about heading for Central Park, classical concerts or opera at nearby Lincoln Centre, and the upscale shops and eateries of the Time Warner Centre. Times Square and Broadway are a short walk away, but far enough not to suck the hotel into the chaos.
It’s right on one of the biggest Subway hubs, affording rapid access to almost anywhere in the city.
