Mandarin Oriental, New York, is a five-star hotel located in Manhattan's Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle in New York City, managed by Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. A part of the multi-use Time Warner Center development, the hotel opened in December 2003. In addition to the 248 guestrooms and suites, the hotel provides services for 64 residences.[2] The hotel has received many national and international awards, and operates one of only two Forbes Five-Star spas in Manhattan.[3][4]

Location

The Mandarin Oriental is located more than 280 feet (85 m) above ground in the north tower of the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle. The Time Warner Center contains 2,800,000 sq ft (260,000 m2) of mixed-use space and is to date the largest such development in New York City history. In addition to the hotel and private condominiums, the complex includes The Shops at Columbus Circle, numerous upscale restaurants, Time Warner’s headquarters, CNN live broadcast production studios, office and residential space, and a 100,000-square-foot (9,300 m2) performance hall for Jazz at Lincoln Center.[2]

Hotel

The AAA Five-Diamond awarded hotel contains 202 guestrooms and 46 suites on floors 35 to 54 of the Time Warner Center with views of Central Park and the Hudson River.[3][5]

Vivienne Tam, a noted New York fashion designer, designed the hotel’s signature fan, which is displayed in the hotel lobby. Dale Chihuly created two glass pieces installed in the hotel. The first is a chandelier, created in a unique collaboration with Waterford Crystal, weighing approximately 2,100 pounds and comprising 683 hand blown glass and crystal pieces. The second installation, located in the 35th floor lobby, is Chihuly’s first foray into glass gardens.

A 250-year-old parchment calligraphy book, conveying a story of happiness and good fortune, and a collection of carved ornaments from furnishings of the same period are housed in the Presidential Suite.

The current General Manager of Mandarin Oriental New York is Susanne Hatje, since 2013.[6] She has been serving the industry for 25 years and the group for 18 years. Prior to this position, she was the Group Director of Residences at Mandarin Oriental.[7]
