Glass enjoys faultless service at The Mark Hotel, NYC

BOLD and beautiful, the interior of The Mark Hotel reflects its New York City surroundings with aplomb. Built in 1927 and completely restyled in 2009 by renowned French designer Jacques Grange, The Mark combines a grand design vision with a meticulous eye for all the details of faultless service. This blend of old-world luxury with modern innovation becomes apparent soon as you enter the striking lobby, with its geometric interior, glossy marble fittings, and signature black and white stripe print sweeping across the floors. Some spaces are breath-taking visions of contemporary design, while others are carefully crafted havens of serenity.

Rooms overlook Madison Avenue, one of New York City’s most exclusive locales. From the finest Italian linen bedsheets to the sleek granite counter tops of the private bars, each room has been thoughtfully designed with guest comfort and style at the forefront. Adjoining five-fixture bathrooms boast deep soaking tubs with separate showers, double sinks, mirrored televisions and floor to ceiling Italian marble. This is a truly luxurious retreat from the bustle of New York City – a space to be savoured.

For those who don’t want to withdraw from the city, The Mark is remarkably well connected. A stone’s throw from some of the world’s finest galleries and institutions, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim and the Cooper Hewitt, art fans will appreciate the hotel’s proximity to such a rich centre of cultural diversity. Glass particularly enjoyed the specialised pedicabs that provide 24-hour access from the hotel to Bergdorf Goodman, as well as special access to Central Park. The hotel even has its own sailing boat, available to guests during spring and summer to take in sunset skylines and the Statue of Liberty on a three-hour journey around Manhattan’s shorelines.

It’s this attention to all aspects of the guest experience that gives The Mark its exceptional level of service, whether that’s the Frédéric Fekkai Salon available to indulge weary travellers with luxury beauty treatments or a complimentary shoeshine service ideal for business people on the go. The hotel also offers a state of the art fitness centre, where guests can book on-site personal training, fitness assessments and dietary guidance sessions, as well as enjoy mixed martial arts and kickboxing sessions from Punch Fitness.
