Mandarin Oriental, New York vs The Wagner at the Battery

Both of these luxury five-star properties feature astounding views. The Ritz-Carlton Battery Park in downtown Manhattan faces New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty, while The Mandarin Oriental, New York at Columbus Circle in Midtown faces Central Park. Both offer many indulgences, including renowned spas and service, but the Mandarin Oriental also offers an enclosed pool. While the Ritz is a bit off the beaten path, its seaside location and telescopes in each room provide a unique experience.
