Asian style in New York

High above New York lies the Mandarin Oriental, a byword in Asian style luxury. This beautiful property has a great location at Columbus Circle on 60th Street. No ground floor rooms here as the hotel is situated between the 35th and 54th floors.  The lower floors house offices and a shopping gallery.

Stylish Mandarin style bedrooms with a choice of view
to Hudson River or Central Park

Stunning views from stunning rooms...

...even from this bathroom
on the 42nd floor

With my love of spas, an obvious point of call on my hotel inspection yesterday was the Mandarin Oriental spa...

Beautiful spa with 25m pool

Then there is MO lifestyle, and places to meet and dine:

The popular MO Bar

Lobby lounge on the 35th floor

Asiate restaurant facing wintry Central Park...

...on the 35th floor - here you come for
excellent Asian crossover food

Our lunch at Asiate was great, under the capable eye of chef Toni Robertson. A well balanced  Sea Bass with Shellfish Bisque, White Bean Purée and Crispy Chorizo…

This was delicious!

And so was this...

Lychee green tea - lovely!
