The recently renovated Hong Kong one looks crap.

Hong Kong - pre-renovation (on the right)


Hong Kong - post renovation


The London one is absolutely fantastic, probably one of the best hotels (appearance wise) in the world.


And the Singapore one has one of the best backdrops.

I don't think the HK one is that bad.

I actually don't like the London one.... I'm no fan of the architecture.

Doesn't meld in well with it's surroundings. If you look at the pre-renovation pic, you can see it looks good in tandem with Prince's Building. Now, it's just completely weird. Looks okay at night/dusk, but during the day it just looks too "clean" - as if it were a hospital or something.

Hong Kong's also got the Oriental-run Excelsior, located in Causeway Bay and probably one of the city's most underrated hotels.



And, probably the city's most overrated hotel, the newly opened Landmark Oriental, located in the heart of the city.

Mandarin Oriental New York



Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas
It's the blue squarish building on the left (not the curved buildings in the back)

Post-renovation, it also lost a major feature (as well as a major selling point) - the outdoor balconies that lined up all four sides of the hotel. Now, it's just your average airconditioned tin...

Here's the one in Munich - I passed by it several times during my vacation up there in Bavaria, because my parking lot was on the other side of the street

I see the point baout the balconies for the HK one, but the architecture - could've been more imaginative, but its not an eyesore.

I guess I just don't have very high standards for it.

The recently-built TWC by Columbus Circle has a Madarian Oriental Hotel in it.

Mandarin Oriental Hotels

Did a search but didnt see a thread dedicated to this hotel chain, which I believe to have some of the most unique hotels in the world, post photos (Exterior & Interior) if you have them.

MO London, one of my all time favorite.

Beautiful Mandarin Oriental London! I specially like the colours of the bar, very appealing.
