Old New York gets an upgrade at this beloved Upper East Side hotel. Star designer Jacques Grange transformed the stuffy 1927 interiors into a showcase of 21st-century style in 2009, with bespoke pieces by Vladimir Kagan, Paul Mathieu and Eric Schmitt. There’s a playfulness to the high design, with poppy black-and-white-striped floors and a slinky-like chandelier lighting the Turnbull & Asser–clad staff.
Bed and Bath
Upstairs, the serene guestrooms display Grange’s exacting design with an earthy cream and beige palette, custom-made beds and furniture, Quagliotti linens and Bang & Olufsen tech devices. The bathrooms feel Art Deco–glam, with deep soaking tubs, mirrored flat-screen TVs and luxury amenities.
The exclusive Frederic Fekkai salon and the Punch Fitness Center are welcome features with the hotel’s busy business crowd. But the real star of the show is the Mark by Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant, with its bronze and glass ceiling by Eric Schmitt. The tasty seasonal menus change throughout the day (you can order a cheeseburger with black truffle dressing at 1 a.m.), and the restaurant is always busy. If you have to wait, order a signature cucumber cocktail in the Mark Bar, popular with the after-work crowd for its dark, deal-making atmosphere and grand Guy de Rougemont furnishings.
How to Get There
Our daughter recently celebrated her birthday at the Mark. We wanted to welcome her with flowers, wine, candy, and balloons but live out of town. Matt, the manager, couldn't have been more helpful and professional. He took care of everything. It was all in her room when she checked in-she was thrilled!
The hotel has amazing suites, modern and elegant. Excellent location in the Upper East side , only half a block away from Central Park and room service and the restaurant are very good. Highly recommended!
very good location. Very nice and quired rooms. They have a cool (hotel)bar which we can recommend you.
Unfortunately, Breakfast service is very inefficient , a bit chaotic. The oatmeal was served without a spoon, coffee needed more than 15 minutes, instead of ordered dark bread we got sweets.
