Luxury spa, lap pool, gourmet dining and modern rooms
It is expensive to stay here
You'll find the lobby of this Asian-inspired luxury hotel on the 35th floor of the Time Warner Building. From there, you can ascend to one of the 244 rooms and suites known for their impressive decor. Each of the accommodations – which recent guests describe as "luxury in the sky" – comes appointed with high-end amenities, such as goose-down bedding, Italian linens, complimentary bottled water, yoga mats and bathroom TVs. The spa is another matter altogether: Covering 14,500 square feet, it has a much-acclaimed lap pool, and lodgers rave over the natural spa treatments. And as far as dining is concerned, you must taste the delectable Asian-American fusion fare served at Asiate and the creative cocktails and small plates at The Aviary NYC and The Office NYC, which is styled after a speakeasy.

Travel + Leisure


The 14,500-square-foot spa (which includes a glassed-in 75-foot-long pool and Espa treatments like ayurvedic scalp stimulation and Thai yoga massage) is quite possibly the city’s best.



Classic, over-the-top luxury defines every inch of this five-star hotel. Guests enter the ground-floor elevators and step out onto the 35th floor of the Time Warner Center to reach the lobby, a big, bright space with gorgeous skyline and Central Park views from the lounge, bar, and restaurant. Service is top-notch and the spa (with one of New York City’s best pools) is worthy of a splurge.

Fodor's Choice


Sure, when one thinks of classic New York hotels, old icons like the Plaza and the Pierre come to mind. But the Mandarin Oriental is a New York icon of a different ilk. Built in December 2003, the 244-room hotel towers 54 stories above Central Park on the Upper West Side. With a prime location, great views, and one of the best spas in the city, it's a strong contender in the category of modern classic.
