Concierge.com's insider take:

Need further proof of the size of Donald Trump's ego? A couple of years ago, a banner appeared on this hotel taunting guests at the just-opened Mandarin Oriental across the street that the real Central Park view belonged to Trump's customers. After a public lashing, the banner was taken down, but it wasn't an empty boast: His 52-story building does, indeed, block the views of some Mandarin guests. Apart from the vistas—and the thrill of checking into a place owned by the star of The Apprentice—the advantages of staying here will most benefit business travelers. The 167 neutral, comfortable rooms and suites—most of which have kitchens—come with a personal attaché who functions as the guest's very own assistant. There are also a variety of complimentary services (faxes, local calls, pressing, a cell phone). One of the better perks is room service from Jean Georges, the esteemed restaurant downstairs.

The 52-story tower on Central Park has white-gloved bellmen, and "staff always 110 percent on their game." Apartment-style rooms and suites underwent a $30 million renovation in January 2010, bringing them an urban feel with Schonbek crystal chandeliers, velvet furnishings, and silk fabric accents on walls. Jean Georges Restaurant has contemporary international cuisine, and Nougatine, a more casual venue, offers dishes like crunchy baked free-range chicken. "The dining experience in both restaurants is first rate."
