Young travellers aged four to 16 are invited to tailor their own exciting adventure and explore the Big Apple with Mandarin Oriental, New York's MO Panda Club programme. After a personalised VIP check-in, each child will receive a Pocket Panda – a paper cut-out character inspired by the hotel’s MiniMo panda – and a list of attractions, such as Tom Friedman’s Looking Up sculpture on Park Avenue, where they can take their photo with him and share the pictures at #MOPandaClub. Fans are then welcomed to their room with a selection of treats, including a MiniMO cuddly toy, New York guidebook, bathrobe, slippers and toiletries. Following a fun-filled day seeing and snapping the sights, they can reenergise back at the hotel with treats from the children’s menu, a refreshing mocktail for teens, and a swim in the 36th-floor pool, which is open to the whole family from 2-4pm. Also available to families is the Mini Manhattan weekend package, featuring memorable activities such as a complimentary horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park. An array of other experiences, such as tickets to the Children’s Museum of Manhattan, can also be arranged.
