The Mark Hotel: Luxury Done Right on the Upper East Side

City Guides: From its coveted location to the impeccable service, anyone who frequents New York must put The Mark at the top of their list of places to stay. Finding its home in the heart of the Upper East Side, the property finds itself just a stone’s throw from some of the most iconic and quintessential landmarks of the city: one block to Central Park, a few more to The Metropolitan Museum, The Whitney, The Guggenheim, and more.

The Mark puts you in the perfect position to stroll designer boutiques for a little afternoon shopping, some of the best dining in the city in the evening, and exceptional bars for that nightcap before heading back to your room. Whether you are traveling for business, pleasure, or a little bit of both, The Mark is just as big, and small, as you need it to be. Only 100 rooms and 50 suites make up this hotel, offering room types anyone from the solo businessman to the family of four can comfortably enjoy.

Luxurious linens, walk-in closets, Crestron touch screen room control panels, private bars decked out with SubZero equipment, five-fixture bathrooms with double vanities are just the beginning. Add that to the Bang & Olufsen HD LCD flat screen and deep-soaking bathtub and you may be tempted to stay in your room. But venturing outside your haven-away-from-home and exploring the hotel is worth the effort of climbing out of your robe and into some clothes. The famous Frédéric Fekkai & Co. has chosen The Mark as home to one of its exclusive, full-service salons. Whether you are in need of a color treatment, a quick trim, or a luxurious manicure/pedicure, Frédéric Fekkai Salon has you covered. (Still can’t tear yourself from that cozy room? Not to worry – you can book an in-room appointment as well.)

After a tiring day exploring the city (or your cozy suite) there is no better way to end the day and begin your evening than with a trip to the excellent restaurant, The Mark, by Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The world-class menu features both European classics as well as Jean-Georges’ signature global seasonings, enhancing his passion for fresh from the market, simple cooking. Custom designed furniture by Mattia Bonetti paired with the eye of restaurant designer Jacques Grange makes for an intimate yet vibrant atmosphere (complete with the incredible bronze and glass ceiling by Eric Schmitt).

Known for their impeccable service and attention to detail, The Mark is a must-stay location for vacationers, business travelers, and New Yorkers alike, perfect for a short stay or a relaxing sojourn from the day-to-day.
