First the good. Everyone was very friendly. Room was clean and had a nice view. Bed was very comfortable. Nice quiet area but within reach all major attractions. The not so good. Nothing in the rooms as far as coffee or Tea (probably use Covid as the excuse for this, but doesn't make sense). Only small bottles of water offered in room at no cost. VERY bad smell in entire lobby area that smelled like sewage.

Grabbed a two days deal for a local staycation. Place was a ghost town, nearly surgically clean, and you couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting someone eager to help. In room dining was contact free and excellent, valet parking was like lightning, bell service was on point, and the front desk was excellent. This is s genuinely nice hotel doing a great job with the hand COVID dealt them. Was a drop expensive ($59 parking in a $20 garage....) but they're just trying to live and I'm cool with that.

My husband and I visited the Mandarin Oriental for our 5 year wedding anniversary and we didn’t want to leave. He and I have stayed at luxury hotels before. However, we have never had the type of service we had at the Mandarin Oriental. The hotel’s hospitality is exceptional. They made us feel so relaxed and welcomed. And even though we stayed during a global pandemic, the hotel went above and beyond to make sure we were safe from COVID. For example, they provided complimentary packets of hand-sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, scheduled room cleanings and pool time. The staff checked your temperature every time you entered the hotel and there were hand sanitizing stations all around. The hotel’s COVID procedures were planned out and well executed. It was seamless. Kudos to the leadership and staff! We will most certainly return!

From the moment I arrived everything was perfect! The valet, the check-in, the delicious dinner, the comfortable bed and lovely room, the towels, the check out, they even made a note of my room for next time, everything was just perfect!

I recently stayed at the MO for a solo staycation, and was heartbroken when I had to check out. From the moment I arrived, until the moment I left, I felt pampered and safe. While at the MO, I also got a massage from the spa. While the experience was a bit different than a 'normal' spa experience (masks, gloves, temperature check, no access to the fun facilities), I wouldn't have wanted it any other way during Covid times. And on the plus side, wearing that mask during a massage helped to collect the drool that would have fallen while getting all the knots worked out from my back! I have already booked another massage for the day after Thanksgiving, and am counting down the days until then. In terms of the hotel stay, all necessary precautions, and then some, are taken. Hand sanitizer throughout the floors, elevator limits to 2 people, a 'goody bag' of masks/hand sanitizer/gloves in the rooms, and when ordering room service, you have the option to have it brought into the room or left outside so nobody else enters the room. All this, and nothing felt weird. It was all done in a very classy way, and I hope I get the luxury of another staycation soon so that I can enjoy all the perks of being a member of the MO rewards program.

Dear annebrady1, Thank you for allowing us to host your staycation. These are certainly challenging times and I am glad that we were able to provide you with a cozy retreat. When we were designing our We Care protocols, we hadn't thought about your creative use for face masks in the Spa! But, its good to know that their use goes a little bit further than we had anticipated. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the Spa at Mandarin Oriental after Thanksgiving. We hope that after this recent stay, our therapists won't have to work out any more knots in your back. Please enjoy all of your future travels! Kind regards, Nicolas Dubort Hotel Manager
