Mandarin Oriental, New York, an award-winning hotel celebrated for its style and sophistication, is delighted to announce the launch of its 42 restyled suites overlooking Central Park, the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline, each suite reflects New York life through the course of a day celebrating the city's sunrise, dusk and nights.

Mandarin Oriental, New York is a member of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, widely acclaimed as the premier global luxury hotel company. With 26 deluxe properties in 15 countries, the Group brings its unique blend of 21st century luxury and oriental charm to its famed hotels, resorts and residences in prime locations globally.

"At Mandarin Oriental, New York, we welcome each of our guests with spectacular views of New York City that are complemented by the personalized service for which Mandarin Oriental is renowned," said Susanne Hatje, General Manager. "The new one- and two-bedroom suites fuse elements of design, art, culture and fashion to provide our guests with a unique perspective that brings the essence and pulse of New York City living to every guest stay."

Designed by global architecture, design, engineering and planning firm HOK, the 42 new suites are specifically designed and structured to emphasize the unparalleled views from the property's location in the heart of Manhattan's Columbus Circle.

Situated on the corners of each guest floor, the restyled suites blend a modern interpretation of Mandarin Oriental's Asian flair with a luxurious, residential aesthetic commemorating three unique themes and color palettes – New York Sunrise, New York Dusk and New York Nights.

A distinctive art program celebrating the hotel's home in New York City is a focal point in each suite and is displayed to evoke the feeling of a gallery space. Curated by Rare Culture, the suites feature original works by emerging New York-based and New York-inspired artists that complement each suite's overall theme.

New York Sunrise: Central Park View Suite

Featuring views of Central Park and the Hudson River, the 820 square-foot Central Park View Suite has been designed to reflect the quiet hours of New York mornings with vivid hues of scarlet, orange and yellow. The vibrant palette is paired with abstract paintings, including Speakith by Per Johannson and Street Scene by New York-based artist Steve Wasterval.

New York Dusk: Hudson River View Suite

Featuring shades of teal to reflect the waters of the Hudson, the 800 square-foot Hudson River View Suite offers a serene respite from the energetic scene of the city during the rush of late afternoon. The suite's theme is brought to life with Steve Wasterval's Perrier and Emmanuel Frangeul's Crowds which capture the momentum of New Yorkers during their daily commute.

New York Nights: Premier Central Park View Suite

With panoramic views of Central Park and the glittering city skyline, the 800 square-foot one-bedroom and 1,220 square-foot two-bedroom Premier Central Park View Suite captures the moment at sunset when the city comes to life with vibrant tones of amethyst. Contemporary art pieces created by Steve Wasterval are featured throughout the space. 

"We were attuned to the property's Asian heritage and combined a contemporary, upscale design that is residential in feel all while maximizing resplendent views of Central Park and Manhattan. We blended myriad layers, textural elements, patterned wallcoverings and saturated colors, balanced with exquisite furnishings, artistic lighting and highly-curated original artwork to create suites that are luxurious, unexpected and elegant," said Christina Hart, Senior Principal, Director of Hospitality Interior Design at HOK.

All 42 suites feature custom designed furnishings, enhancing the residential feel. A teardrop-shaped table of ebonized walnut is a centerpiece for entertaining, dining or working in the living area, while richly textured curved sofas provide a place of comfort while maximizing city views from multiple angles. Dramatic stripes in shades of silver and black, soft Asian-inspired graphic designs, and grained maple veneers are combined to provide a dynamic and sophisticated millwork accent wall in the living area, exuding the ambiance of an upscale home.

Decorative crystal light fixtures throughout the space take inspiration from contemporary and mid-century modern design and scatter light across the ceiling to evoke the glimmer of the city. Window treatments mirror each suite's designated color theme and bring a unique and innovative composition with the use of colored blackout over-drapes that are further softened by a layer of an iridescent sheer fabric shade positioned in front of them.

Bedrooms showcase tufted, upholstered beds each facing the enveloping Manhattan views. Master bath and powder rooms further illustrate the residential tone with side-by-side sinks, soothing rainforest showers with separate soaking tubs, luxurious Fresh-brand bath amenities and mirrored vanities featuring built-in televisions.

Recognizing that today's sophisticated travelers expect state-of-the-art, user-friendly technology, each of the suites feature Samsung 55-inch Smart LED televisions in both the living rooms and bedrooms, premium Harman Kardon sound systems with Bluetooth capabilities in the living room's entertainment area as well as built-in connectivity panels in the living room desks to play content on the suites' televisions and sound systems.

Guests booking the newly-designed suites will also have access to an array of exclusive experiences and amenities to be launched in Summer 2015. For reservations, please call +1 (212) 805 8800 or visit www.mandarinoriental.com.
