Through curated partnerships that blend elements of art, culture, fashion and gastronomy, the suite experience has been enhanced with an array of exclusive amenities and programs.
Designed by global architecture, design, engineering and planning firm HOK, the suites celebrate New York City life through the course of a day with three distinct themes – the 820 square-foot New York Sunrise-themed Central Park View Suite, the 800 square-foot New York Dusk-themed Hudson River View Suite, and the New York Nights-themed 800 square-foot Premier Central Park View Suite and 1,220 square-foot Two Bedroom Central Park West Suite. Complementing the suites' modern interiors is a contemporary art collection curated by Rare Culture which draws inspiration from New York City and creates the feeling of a gallery space for suite guests. Original pieces by New York-based and New York-inspired artists, including Steve Wasterval, Per Johannson and Emmanuel Frangeul a.k.a. Blew, are featured throughout the spaces.
Bedside Reading Program by Altuzarra and Rodarte New York City Guide
Located in one of the premier fashion capitals of the world, the property incorporates elements of fashion into the new suites through partnerships with two renowned luxury brands. The hotel's Bedside Reading Program is elevated in the suites through a collaboration with award-winning New York-based fashion designer and avid reader Joseph Altuzarra of Altuzarra. Each suite features a selection of the designer's favorite books which have inspired the collections for his women's ready-to-wear brand over the years including titles The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, and In Search of Lost Time by Proust. Guests are invited to take a book home if they wish.
Suite guests will also be welcomed upon arrival with a Rodarte New York City Guide designed exclusively for the property by award-winning designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, founders of the luxury clothing and accessories brand Rodarte. Created as both a functional map of Manhattan and also a collectible art piece, the Rodarte New York City Guide is a visualization of the discoveries and insights which have defined the designer duo's city experiences. The guide provides suite guests with the unique opportunity to explore the city through the eyes of the visionary designers.
Ensuite Meditation and Heat Experiences Access at the Five-Star Spa
To create an oasis of calm high above Manhattan, the hotel is bringing the spa experience into each suite through meditation. Guests are invited to enjoy a meditative moment looking out onto the city with plush DharmaCrafts meditation cushions available to use in each of the suites. One-on-one guided meditation journeys are offered to suite guests through the Five-Star Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York for an additional fee. Guests of the new suites will also receive complimentary access to The Spa's extensive Heat Experiences featuring separate men's and women's oxygen-infused vitality pools, amethyst crystal steam rooms and experience showers.
Suite Cocktail Program
The new suites celebrate New York City gastronomy with re-imagined welcome amenities and a signature cocktail program. After checking-in, guests are presented with creative gourmet delights and an original house-made beverage ingredient inspired by their suite's theme. This is accompanied by an invitation to MObar for a complimentary bespoke cocktail using the ingredient. The Sunrise cocktail created for the Central Park View Suite features homemade blood orange sugar cubes, champagne and a lemon twist. The Hudson River View Suite's Dusk concoction is made with homemade pickled cherries, rye whiskey, Carpano Antica Vermouth and bitters. The Night cocktail, signature to the Premier Central Park View Suite and the Two Bedroom Central Park West Suite, is comprised of homemade honey ginger syrup, lemon juice, Glenfiddich 12 Year Old Whisky and candied ginger. Guests also receive the recipe for their respective suite cocktail and are welcome to bring their ingredient home.
