High Potential – Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo

Remain in the core of Tokyo A decent inn offers everybody, from the crisp confronted amateur to the fatigued fifth-era explorer, the opportunity to see the city once again. From the Mandarin Oriental’s bewildering 37th-floor campaign—all floor-to-roof reinforced glass windows and lively productivity—that mantra is given new significance: Downtown looks scoured, an accumulation of favorable Tinker Toys seen through a scrim of mists. The inn itself has 158 rooms and 21 suites—all elegant, if somewhat dull (cherry-darker wood, dark stone ledges)— yet are stuffed with keen utilitarian points of interest, similar to the lobby available “administration storage rooms,” into...

Luxury Hotel – The Surrey

The Surrey, New York’s only Relais & Châteaux hotel, is situated in one of Manhattan’s most exclusive neighborhoods, the Upper East Side, with direct access to Madison Avenue’s upscale boutiques & restaurants, Museum Mile, iconic landmarks and Central Park. The Surrey is 20 minutes from LaGuardia Airport (LGA), 40 minutes from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and 60 minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). Hotel Overview Once a long-term residence to Bette Davis and JFK as well as Padma Lakshmi (as noted in her 2016 memoir, Love, Loss and What We Ate), The Surrey concluded a $60 + million glamorous transformation in 2009, while maintaining its pre-war, Beaux- Arts charm. Named #1 New York City hotel by readers of Condé Nast Traveler in 2015, the hotel is the preferred hideaway of today’s elite set. Reflective of its Upper East Side neighborhood, The Surrey by renowned architectural and interior designer, Lauren Rottet, evokes the ambiance of a residential townhouse that has evolved over time with eclectic pieces that seem to have been acquired through worldly travels. Adding an unexpected twist, the hotel is accented with eclectic elements such as the front desk made of hand-tooled leather, and intricate mosaic tiles mimic an antique Oriental carpet in the grand entry. The hotel showcases coffered ceilings, limestone walls and moldings, and marble archways and floors in the lobby. Rottet’s use...
