Indulgent Zen palace floating above Columbus Circle with a sprawling spa and an inventive modern American restaurant
Perched high in the sky above Columbus Circle on floors 35 through 54 of the Time Warner complex, the 248-room Mandarin Oriental exudes quiet Asian opulence, from the natural materials showcased in the public spaces (wood paneling, granite and marble floors) to the nature-inspired pieces of art (among them, Dale Chihuly’s stunning sculpture of cranes rising from a moss garden) to the Chinese textiles and artifacts found throughout.
Bed and Bath
The rooms have a restrained elegance, in a palette of cream, gold, saffron and ebony. Lacquer desks, silk bedspreads and Chinese watercolors provide a subtle nod to the East. But your real focus, especially on floors 45 and above, will be the views of Central Park and the rest of the city through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
The hotel's signature restaurant, Asiate, features floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views of the city's skyline. Led by Chef de Cuisine Garrison Price, the menu features modern American cuisine with a creative twist. But the hotel’s best amenity is its spa, where the treatment rooms come with giant windows, raised tubs and kang beds, and the menu surveys Asian healing traditions (Chinese medicine, Thai massage, ayurveda).
