Hotels from a business perspective: Mandarin Oriental, Taipei
COMMANDING THE HIGHEST hotel rates in the city, Mandarin Oriental Taipei is an attention- getter with its European castle design. Decorated with art deco flourishes and white marble opulence, the large hotel complex includes numerous restaurants, a shopping centre and a whole wing dedicated for function spaces.
Situated on Dunhua North Road, a broad, quiet, tree-lined street in Songshan district, the hotel is set apart from the urban frenzy while still comfortably close to business and leisure hotspots. It’s 15 minutes by car to the centre of Xinyi financial district, home of Taipei 101. It’s also minutes from Songshan Airport, which mainly offers domestic flights.
THE ROOMS 房間
Ceilings are remarkably high in most rooms, and bathrooms are sumptuous with marble bathtubs and stylish rain showers. Large desks and Illy coffee machines will help you stay busy. For all the trimmings, opt for a club room, which includes daily breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails, as well as garment pressing and shoe shines. 大部分客房擁有極高樓底，奢華的浴室配備大理石浴缸和時尚的雨淋式花灑。寬闊的辦公桌和Illy咖啡機是你的工作良伴。要享受奢華的排場，行政樓層房間每天提供早餐、下午茶和晚間雞尾酒，住客還可享燙衣及擦鞋服務。
While the castle look makes the hotel popular for wedding receptions, the boardroom and ballrooms are prime places for meetings and conferences. A business centre houses private work stations. And after hours, try the outdoor pool, large gym or spa. For souvenirs, drop by the Mandarin Cake Shop for top-notch pineapple cakes. mandarinoriental.com/taipei
