The Mandarin Oriental


Address: 80 Columbus Circle, New York, US

Right on the circumference of bustling Columbus Circle, The Mandarin Oriental is a destination for out-of-towners and townies alike. The spa has a vitality pool and amethyst crystal steam room; the Asiate restaurant serves innovative cuisine; and the hotel bar is, according to Kelsey Banfield, “an absolute must. You can sit in the white banquets and see clear across Central Park and to the East Side. It is so much fun to sip a glass of wine and try to pick out places you know from so high up!”
