New Mandarin Oriental Paris is a 5 stars class act that delivers everything you would expect. It's address is most prestigious on Rue Saint Honore, Its design beautiful and expensive, it's staff - professional and kind and the Deluxe room i was upgraded to was wonderful, cozy and had the most breathtaking washing room i have seen in a long time. The whole place has an understated wow factor that you would expect from the Mandarin Oriental Brand and i must say i did not come across of any glitches or problems that one might expect from a new operation. Reception and concierge team were especially amazing and if i wasn't so jet legged and forgetful i would write each and everyone's name here. Sorry guys you know who you are!
My only concern for this hotel is that Paris's luxury hotel market is overfloweded already, and i think this new MO has to find its selling idea and differentiation. Where is his place among the "golden triangle" of The Ritz, The Plaza Athenee and .the Four Seasons George V? It certainly charges the same amount per night as the older guys, but what does it bring to the table? The Ritz has an even more prestigious address on Place Vendome, and a lot more history. The Plaza athenee is famous for its fashion crowds and location and the Four Seasons is known for its outstanding service and costumer care. And there are other key players like Le Meurice, Le Bristol, Le Crillion and even Hotel Costes that shares the very same block on Rue Saint Honore with the Oriental. They all are class acts, They all are amazing and Beautiful properties and i'm not quite sure why would one choose MO again when all those amazing options are available.
That said, i did enjoy my stay there and certainly recommend it.
