New York, United States
Set in a landmark 1920’s building, a minute’s walk from Central Park and Museum Mile, The Mark is a luxurious combination of old and new. Styled by French designer Jacques Grange, bold geometric shapes and splashy colours intersperse with narrow black and white floor stripes and sleek Paul Mathieu sofas.
The bold stylings translate into the hotel’s 150 suites which are large by New York standards. Italian linen, custom-made beds and Bang & Olufsen sound systems make them elegant and high-tech with a strong 1930s Paris feel. State-of-the-art bathrooms are finished with black and white marble and the lighting, climate, entertainment systems and window shades can be adjusted at the touch of a button.
The Mark Restaurant and Bar are the brainchild of award-winning chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The French-American dishes range from golden scallops and grilled spit-roast lobster to burgers and pizzas. Just next door, the lively Mark Bar is one of the hippest hangouts on Madison Avenue and serves hand crafted classic and signature cocktails. Pull up a seat on the cool cowhide chairs and head straight for a mojito.
The Mark is also home to the famous Frederic Fekkai Salon offering pampering and massage as well as hair and beauty. A fully equipped fitness centre is open 24 hours a day.
