Amber is at Landmark Mandarin Oriental and NOT the Mandarin Oriental which is my all time favourite hotel. Landmark Mandarin Oriental is of course located at The Landmark and you can just walk down from your room straight into one of Hong Kong's finest shopping malls filled with the latest fashions and jewels money, love and sex can buy.
Luckily Landmark Mandarin Oriental and The Mandarin Oriental are located 5 minutes' walk from each other so Amber is accessible whichever hotel you stay! Both hotels are equally posh though Landmark MO is new and Mandarin Oriental HK is just super grand and historic and I have stayed there at least 12 times and love it!
