“Long an uptown landmark and meeting place, the Mark has had a major revamp at the hands of France's top designer, the ebullient Jacques Grange. The dizzying black and white striped lobby floor, exaggerated by multiple mirrors, leads Escher-like into the warm cocoon of the buzzing restaurant. Bedrooms are supremely stylish, quiet and restful with good views, the service impeccable. There is an excellent fitness centre and hair salon popular with uptown girls. Along with the 100 rooms and 50 suites, there are also larger tower suites and a penthouse apartment available for sale. A brilliantly executed addition to the Upper East Side¹s stellar cast of hotels, orchestrated by legendary manager James Sherwin.”
