80 Columbus Circle, New York

by James Wilkinson

Overlooking Central Park atop the Time Warner Center, the luxurious Mandarin Oriental New York sits 50 floors above Columbus Circle and features 202 guestrooms and 46 suites with floor-to-ceiling windows, bathrooms with tubs and large flatscreen TVs.

Modern American cuisine is on offer at Asiate, which also has one of the city’s most extensive wine lists, while a stay wouldn’t be complete without a swim in the sky-high indoor pool.
