Average time to visit

Summer or winter, rain or shine, there's always great stuff going on in New York, so when you're planning a trip, there's no real "best" or "worst" time to go. Weather wise fall and spring are the best times in New York. From April to June and September to November, temperatures are mild and pleasant, and the light is beautiful. Summers can be hot and humid while winter snowfalls are not uncommon.

September to December is conference season in New York, and we would advise booking early for travel during this period.

Description

Set in a landmark 1920's building a minute’s walk from Central Park and Museum Mile, The Mark is one of New York’s finest luxury hotels, offering an appealingly teasing mixture of old and new, and extraordinary levels of service.

Styled by celebrated French designer Jacques Grange, The Mark is a stunning five-star boutique hotel on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, combining old-world comfort, avant-garde design, state-of-the-art technology and matchless personal service.

From the moment you step into the hotel foyer, you are disarmed by the alluringly understated elegance and its witty accents, from the zebra-striped marble floor to the cowhide sofas in the bar. Even the staff have been fitted out in Jermyn Street's finest. The Mark oozes flair, but makes no concession to content, and the hotel is a soothing haven of luxury in this city that never sleeps.

The hotel's 150 suites and rooms are spacious by New York standards, and come with luxurious Italian linen, custom-made beds, a Bang & Olufsen sound system and furnishings in ebony, sycamore and nickel, evoking Paris in the 1930s. State-of-the-art bathrooms are finished with black and white marble and, at the touch of a button, your bathroom mirror will become a TV.

The hotel restaurant has quickly become a local fixture for the hard-to-please local crowd, and is overseen by award-winning chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, while the Mark Bar is the chicest meeting spot on the Upper East Side, a wonderful place to share a signature cocktail in the evening. There is also a beauty salon and a fitness center, both completed to equally exacting standards as the rest of the hotel.

Above all, though, what impresses most about The Mark is the service, exemplified by the outstanding concierge, who will magically finesse entry to Manhattan’s most exclusive restaurants, theaters, galleries and boutiques.

This stylish hotel is a real gem. As you walk into the lobby you are greeted by their signature black and white striped floor which is featured throughout the hotel. The rooms are light and spacious with a modern feel. The hotel itself is situated just moments from Central Park a great spot for a morning walk or jog to start of a great day in the city!

Camilla Swift (Staff)

On a beautiful tree-lined block at Madison and 77th, one block from Central Park and within Museum Mile, The Mark is a crowd pleaser - It would certainly appeal to guests who like slick, clean-line and modern interiors, but also to those who feel at home in a traditional building. It's certainly a firm favorite of mine.

Bold geometric shapes and splashy interiors bring this Upper East Side classic to life, from the marble-floored lobby with striking black and white stripes to the elegant yet high-tech guest rooms and suites.

All staff members are friendly, charismatic, and helpful. Facilities are excellent in this chic New York hotel; The complimentary shoe shine kiosk by John Lobb is a nice touch, and a stylish fleet of custom bicycles available to guests on a first come first served basis are popular. The Restaurant by Jean-George Vongerichten is a happening place attracting locals, guests and visitors to enjoy creative and delicious French-American dishes - lots of choice and perfect for couples, friends and families.
