Great views

Great views and a good place to have a drink with your couple, cocktails are normal ( ginger mojito is correct but for me is better the classic ones), price is in the rates of NY for this kind of places.

I was excited to make this visit during my stay in NYC because I remember it being a great experience a few years ago. I was not overly impressed with the way our high tea went. We were lucky enough to get a table without reserving but did have to wait for 30 minutes which was of no fault of... More

Whilst on vacation in NYC, we decided to take a long walk through Central Park. We found ourselves outside the Mandarin Oriental and took a peek through the window into the main lobby. The concierge beckoned us inside and suggested that if we wanted a wonderful view, we should take the elevator up to the 35th floor. We were in... More

Afternoon tea menu was not the best I've had, but the view from the Lobby lounge is spectacular. Definately worth the visit. I do recommend table reservation as the place is very popular.

We attended on a Saturday evening for my partners 21st birthday and were seated by the window. The view was fantastic, particularly watching the sunset from late afternoon to early evening. There was a great range of drinks and some fantastic cocktails. Our server, Honey-Lynn was truly exceptional and a real credit to the Mandarin Oriental. She went out of... More

Dropped in here after seeing Matilda (long but refreshing late evening air walk from Schubert Theatre north to Columbus Circle) to specifically go to the lounge for a high end cocktail and a jaw-dropping view of the NYC skyline - drinks were worth every penny! My son brought in his 30th birthday here with his sister and I so it... More

If you are near Central Park, make sure to stop by the Mandarin Oriental for an afternoon tea. The views of central park are so beautiful. I was there while New York was covered in snow and it looked amazing. The food is good too but the the views are the best part for sure!

Went here with my girlfriends 1/31/15 for a 3pm tea service reservation. I arrived 15 minutes early and after being seated the waitress immediately came up to warn be about a 5pm event they would be having in the lobby which seemed quite rude if you ask me. I was pretty much tricked into choosing any ole tea while I... More

Drinks and snacks were very good, roughly $20 each, but you are really paying for the incredible view of Central Park.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
