Mandarin Oriental Will Open Inside This In Taipei This Year
If you asked us what a new Mandarin Oriental hotel would look like in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan and home to things like Taipei 101, we would have probably gone with something like this. It wouldn’t have been even remotely along the lines of this exterior rendering, showing a, let’s say, ‘classically-inspired’ pile that, if nothing else, kind of reminds us of a red-brick version of the top floors of Paris Las Vegas. Anyone else see the resemblance?
Opening doors during the second quarter of the year, the hotel will have 256 rooms and 47 suites, with two Presidential Suites that clock in at over 4,000 square feet each. There will be a number of restaurants (French Brasserie COCO, restaurant Ya Ge for Cantonese, Bencotto for Italian), an MO Bar, a Cake Shop, and the Jade Lounge for afternoon tea. An outdoor swimming pool, a spa, roof gardens, and meeting rooms round out the facilities.
