The Mark, New York, USA
An iconic landmark that’s presided over bustling Madison Avenue since its birth in the roaring ‘20s, The Mark is one of New York’s true grandes dames.
One of modern-day New York’s must-stay boutique hotels and a draw for anyone looking for high style with just a smidge of quirkiness. And while the familiar exterior remains the same, the interior has been brought kicking and screaming into the 21st century with über-cool results.
Now the white walls of its airy interiors set off glossy geometric flooring, sharp modern furnishings, huge built-in closets (perfect to hang all those NYC purchases in) and every mod con you can think of.
If you can drag your eyes away from the designer loveliness, you’ll find staggering views of Manhattan’s skyline; the chic, lively Mark Bar – one of the Upper East Side’s hottest joints – and the ultra-sleek Mark Restaurant, run by super-chef-cum-restaurateur, Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
What’s more, with Central Park and the best museums, restaurants and shops all within a stone’s throw, The Mark is the perfect base from which to savour the very best of the Big Apple.
