The Mark Hotel is a New York City landmark full of a rich history and overflowing with swanky style and modern design. It’s tucked away on 77th street between Fifth and Madison Avenue. The lobby is composed of black and white tiles and an elevator door that is always open, giving visitors the feeling that a getaway and escapade awaits in the floors above.
The Mark was initially designed by Schwartz & Gross who were the premier architects of numerous buildings in New York City during the first half of the 20th century. Its doors opened in 1927, but recently it underwent a great design revamp by none other than Jacques Grange, who boasts clients including Yves Saint Laurent and Princess Caroline of Monaco. Famous guests include Oprah Winfrey, The Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, and many more.
A truly refreshing and unique aspect of the Mark is its room design. The bathrooms
are exquisite including both a shower and bathtub as well as a TV screen. Black and white is the palette of choice and channels complete class and elegance, and the bathroom had beautiful jade accents to add a fresh pop of non-traditional color. The beds are softer than anything imaginable, and the room has an air of contentment. Central Park is just moments away, as well as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in case another dose of culture is needed.
Other highlights are the Jean Georges restaurant accessible through the lobby, which is completely warm and inviting as well as Frédéric Fekkai’s Salon Mark which accents the polished beauty of the property and puts it right at your fingertips.
Truly a must-see and must-stay for anyone in the Big Apple. Visit www.themarkhotel.com for more information.
