Arrival

MO properties are renowned for their commitment to guests’ experiences, and it’s not different in New York. The experience of arriving is perhaps the moment when you most notice the excellence of their services. When you arrive on the ground floor, the staff is already ready to help you with the luggage and take it straight to your room while you check-in on the lobby (35th floor). In the reception, they receive you quite warmly trying to always make you feel welcome at the hotel. In my personal experience at Mandarin Oriental, a member of the team escorted me to my room and everything was perfect when I arrived with a welcome letter and a press release with information about the property. Just a few minutes later, they arrived with my luggage and complementary amenities offered by the hotel. The team of staff is also quite helpful and ready to kindly assist the guests with information, travel tips, tickets, reservations in the best restaurants of Manhattan, etc. They will certainly do their best to ensure you have a fantastic stay in the city!
