Revered as one of New York’s Upper East Side’s most high-end hotels, The Mark (@themarkhotelny) is a Manhattan hallmark on the corner of Madison Avenue and 77th Street. A mélange of avant-garde design and old-world comfort, the property is a nod to the classic luxe boutique hotels for which The Big Apple is known. Upon entrance, guests walk into a lobby with a glistening contrasted floor of black and white. Designed by Jacques Grange, and right next door to the elegant lobby, the Mark Bar is a place to be seen; its stylish décor and dashing ambiance attract some of New York’s most elite. Michelin-star chef, Jean Georges Vongerichten, leads an appetizing journey for gastronomes at the house restaurant. Sybarites looking to indulge in pinnacle luxury, should elect to stay in the penthouse, with its five bedrooms, private rooftop terrace, and library; not to mention, it has panoramic views of central park and the city skyline. The Mark is also known worldwide for an exceptional level of hospitality and extensive amenities, including around-the-clock room service, check-in, and 24/7 shopping at Bergdorf Goodman (yes, you read that correctly). Outside of the hotel, those looking for a Manhattan field trip should check out The Mark Sailboat, a 70-foot historic Herreshoff available for leisurely sailing around the New York harbor.
