A Luxurious Stay at the Mandarin Oriental

I am staying at the Mandarin Oriental during this trip to Taiwan.  It is a new hotel that opened earlier this year on North Dunhua Road in the Songshan district in Taipei.  I find the location a bit inconvenient (and lots of taxi drivers don't really know where it is) however the comfort of the hotel is certainly unparalleled. 

The room is very big and luxurious.  Everything is of very high quality, including 400 count sheets and thick down pillows and comforters, Frette bathrobes, etc.

 The bathroom is incredibly decadent, consisting of a separate soaking tub, a freestanding shower with a rainshower, a spray shower head and a full length mirror.  The toilet is in an entirely separate room. 

 My favorite part of the whole room is the valet box.  It's a box that the waitstaff or housekeeping can access from the outside - so you leave whatever you want taken away (whether it's garbage, dirty laundry, or shoes to be polished) and they replace with whatever you need (clean clothing or newspapers) without having to disturb you.  I love it!

There is a nice fruit platter (though the massive dragonfruit and guava are my personal additions)
 The mini bar rolls out from a cabinet:
 There is illy espresso and fine china cups:
