Hotel Description

The original Mandarin Oriental is back. Though it’s always been one of the best hotels in Hong Kong, if not all of Asia, this relic of the Swinging Sixties was beginning to show its age. Now, after a thorough rethink of its interiors (and not just a cosmetic one — we’re talking walls knocked down, floors ripped up, the works) it’s got the looks to once again match its reputation.

These new guest rooms are the opposite of dated. Though they’re perhaps more conservatively styled than those in some of the other newer Mandarins, they come off more serious, more grand, not at all stuffy. They’re bigger than before as well, with bathrooms you could happily live in, and the gadgetry is state-of-the-art, from the flat screens in the bedrooms and bathrooms to the ultra-high-tech lighting systems.

“City or harbor views” is almost always a clever way of saying “good or bad views”; here it’s not quite so simple, as you could do a lot worse for city views than Chater Road and Statue Square. Still, anyone can have a harbor view from the rooftop M Bar, serving cocktails and Cantonese tapas with the best view in the house. The classic Mandarin Grill + Bar has had a going-over at the hand of Sir Terence Conran, and the top-floor restaurant (from which the views are understandably none too shabby) belongs to three-Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire.

So it looks brand new, which is a good thing, but underneath it all it’s still the same old Mandarin Oriental — also a good thing, as this has always meant fine living, faultless service and the sort of bars and restaurants where the city’s social scene congregates. Pretty much all you’d want from a big city hotel.

Please note: The pool will be closed for renovation from May 29 through August 31, 2015. During this period, guests may use the pool at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, a 10-minute walk via elevated walkway; contact the spa concierge or front office team to arrange temporary access. All other recreational facilities will remain open during this period.
