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
The suite was gorgeous - from the plush couch, to the 2 bathrooms and luxurious bed.
The restaurant - Jean George has the best caviar and Dover Sole in the city.
Without a doubt my favorite hotel in NYC.
My wife had stayed at the Mark for many years, but after a few issues, decided it was time to leave.
One of the main issues that we had was with the General Manager, who was never friendly to us as regular guests. He may also have been upset with us for a previous Trip Advisor review I left complaining about a delegation to the UN smoking throughout the hotel when the hotel is a no smoking hotel. But the GM and many others from previous management at the hotel are all gone and it was time to see if things had improved.
We always stay in a particular room design which has a large living room with comfortable contemporary furniture. The hotel also knows all of our preferences including changing the mattress to our liking.
Coming back was a real homecoming. It was like everyone in the hotel knew we were coming back and wee were welcomed with open arms. The service was great as expected, and we are happy to be back.
First of all, I experience the beds as having mattresses that are too soft.
Secondly, I asked the my king bed be divided into two singles the second night of my stay, but the housekeeping department failed to relay information to housekeeper.
Thirdly, I asked for a coffee maker to be placed in my room (ought there not be one?) as I headed out to dinner and when I arrived to go to bed no sign of one. Another failure to deliver.
My husband and I are American expats living in Paris but are originally from NY. While back home for the holidays, we decided to switch things up a little and stay at The Mark (until then we were die-hard St Regis fans). We were so happy we did. We were immediately impressed by the professional, but low-key service we received and the luxuriously appointed, modern suite to which we were shown, which had a full kitchen - an absolute perfect perk for us since our friends and family all wanted to stop by and see us and we were looking to have a more "homey" feel rather than a typical hotel room. The UES location is perfect for coming home to a quiet neighborhood - not overrun with tourists - which has access to everything your heart desires (shopping at all price ranges, good food, the Park, museums, etc.).
When we had to be back in town three months later, there was no debate - we would stay at The Mark. The level of service and the room were both just as we experienced the first time - impeccable.
We're heading back to NY in a couple of days and are delighted to check back into our new home away from home!
Can’t say enough good things about this establishment. Love the location, it’s quite, next to the park with plenty of access to shops and restaurants.
Rooms are simple, elegant and comfortable. They also did a great job on designing the gym with right mix of free weights, machines and cardio.
But the best thing is the staff, whom are efficient, caring and friendly. The concierge team in particular will go out of their way to help you. I had to order some prescription medicine and they negotiate a 70% price reduction upon delivery on my behalf!
Super stay and would be happy to come back.
