The luxury hotel experience rises to new heights, in the Mandarin Oriental, New York, which opened its doors last November. Located in the new Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle on Central Park South, the elegant hotel, an exquisite confluence of classic, modern, Western design and sophisticated oriental color and detailing, floats like a heavenly oasis, on the 35th through 54th floors of one of the crystalline towers comprising the brand new multi-use complex. Designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates in conjunction with Brennan Beer Gorman Architects, the five-star hotel stands as Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group's flagship U.S. property.
