Mandarin Oriental Hotels are generally very nice, but this one is an exception. Built inside an old bank building, my favorite place in this hotel was the bar where the walls are lined with old safe deposit boxes. Even on the ceiling!
Rooms are very nice, though somewhat small. I recommend a Jr. Suite if you want some space.
The range of room amenities is spectacular. They have a little box in every room with all kinds of electronic hookups and cords. So if you forget a plug adaptor or a phone jack or whatever...just check out the little box.
Baths are pretty amazing as well. The Jr. Suites have "tea cup" bathtubs which are very cute, but somewhat of a pain to bath in (if you like baths). I guess they are going for the oriental touch with the Japanese style of soaking tubs, but it didn't work for me.
The gym here as well as the two pools are great. There is an indoor pool in the basement and then there is the spectacular rooftop pool that would be super in warmer months.
I really liked this hotel a lot, and would highly recommend it. Be careful not to wander too close to the Jimmy Choo Shoe store just off the Lobby....it can pull you right in if you are a shoe fanatic like me.
