The Mark Hotel New York City | New York, United States | I have just checked OUT from the beautiful and charming exclusive boutique hotel The Mark. If there is a way to describe it is… full class, welcoming, happening, fashionable and chic. 1927 landmark building at the corner of 77th Street and Madison Avenue. Designed by Jacques Grange and with impeccable service under the perfectionist eye of luxury hotel manager Olivier Lordonnois, The Mark combines old-world comfort, avant-garde design, the latest technologies and an unprecedented level of personal service to create the finest five-star hotel of the 21st-century. I have been in New York for over seven years, and I must say that I always stick to the same hotel preferences, although The Mark is not just a hotel, it is a whole experience of great taste and class.
I am not going to bother you with all the specs of the hotel, which you can find online, the main purpose of my visit is to endorse their great service, friendly attitude and excellence in service. High prices, well yes, but the balance between that, the service, overall experience, location, restaurant and bar are fully worth it. 150 rooms, you can see a sample above. Bang and Olufsen specially design TVs, full mini bar like I have not seen before even with you own sub-zero fridge, amenities by The Mark itself. Luxurious Italian bedding and linen and furnishings in ebony, sycamore and nickel. If there is something that the rooms at the mark are, is cozy.
One of the things that called my attention from the room was the innovative Crestron system. A leading system in room features control and atomization. Forget about turning on or off the lights, pulling down the shades or turning on the TV, Crestron does it all for you with only one remote control right next to the head of your bed.
State-of-the-art fitness center is open 24 hours and features special equipment selected. Next to it, you will also find the Frederic Fekkai Salon, the world’s most famous hairstylist with the full spectrum of services that Fekkai made know worldwide.
I have the pleasure to enjoy a fabulous dinner at The Mark Restaurant by Jean George. This was my second time at the restaurant, but first for dinner service and I must say that despite of being very very crowded, the service was flawless and the food was exquisite. By the signature of Manhattan’s preeminent chef Jean-George Vongerichten, who brings his unbridled passion for fresh from the market and simple cooking, at a comfortable yet elegant dining room. My choices for the night, the classic Tuna Tartare and the Casco Bay Cod with sweet garlic, lemon broth, lemon crumbs and spinach. And do not miss to stop, upon dinner or on the way out, at the Mark Bar, which aside of featuring a chic and lively design, it is the chicest meeting spot on the Upper East Side.
The Mark Hotel, from the moment you walk through the lobby, step into their stung elevators and walk to your room, you will experience old-world comfort, avant-garde design, the latest technologies and an unprecedented level of personal service, to create the finest five-star hotel New York stay.
