We scoured the city for the nine best new rooms to stay in now.
Mandarin Oriental, New York
Suite 5000: Mandarin Oriental
As the newest addition to the signature collection (launched in November 2013), Suite 5000 isn’t on the list of available rooms at the Mandarin Oriental. Instead, this “secret suite” is bookable only for those in the know enough to mention it by name. Inside the 3,300-square-foot space—appointed in soft dove gray, ivory and charcoal tones—guests can run laps around the open-plan area featuring a living room, dining room and full-size kitchen. Or request an in-suite fitness enclave instead, outfitted with custom-selected equipment based on your preference. The sun-soaked master bathroom boasts a large black soaking tub and an oversized steam shower with wide-open views of the Hudson River. But the real highlight is the Dior Cabine—a walk-in closet brimming with handpicked clothing and accessories for men and women straight from the fashion house’s current collection. Taking the experience up a notch, guests have access to Dior’s team of personal stylists, seamstresses and makeup artists, as well as entrée to exclusive, invitation-only presentations. $28,000 a night; 80 Columbus Cir.; 212-805-8800; mandarinoriental.com/newyork/.
