Boutique Luxury at New York City's Mark Hotel

Boutique Luxury at New York City's Mark Hotel
Affable doormen accommodate your every need, while a heated awning ensures your comfort while waiting for a cab should the weather turn brisk. This is one of New York's most luxurious boutique hotels, and the staff goes to great lengths to ensure that your stay is filled with special moments.

The Mark Fall Foliage Package personalizes a tour of Central Park. The tour takes guests through a scenic view of Central Park via The Mark Pedicab, stops for a Jean-Georges Picnic in the Park with cinnamon-tossed, caramel-filled donuts and hot cider, and drops guests off at The Metropolitan Museum with two cocktail vouchers to view Cornelia Park's Psycho Barn exhibition at the rooftop bar. The Pedicab will wait for its guests outside The Met and transfer them back to the hotel to complete the tour. With Central Park at their doorstep, guests of the hotel can stop by The Conservatory Water Boat Pond in Central Park to try their hand at The Mark's chic new black and white striped fleet of remote controlled sailboats. It's a great way to spend some time in the park.

Dining at The Mark

Dining at The Mark is an experienced to be savored. The Mark Restaurant by Jean-Georges displays the artistry of Jean-Georges Vongerichten, one of the world's pre-eminent chefs. Here, your taste buds embark on a culinary journey of land and sea that never fails to captivate one's senses. Char-grilled octopus, crispy potato with smoked paprika and herbs is a delectable appetizer that sets the stage for a very enjoyable evening of gourmet dining. Grilled Red Snapper, braised fennel with carrots and Cerignola olives will please even the most refined palate, while grilled lamb chops with smoked chili glaze and broccoli rabe is a delightful entree.

While undergoing a design transformation in 2009, the hotel turned to renowned French designer Jacques Grange. The result is striking, and combines grand spaces that provide serene havens of quiet luxury. Despite the abundance of activities nearby, guests are tempted to spend hours inside this historic building soaking up its exquisite ambience. The luxury of Old World comfort along with avant-garde design makes this boutique hotel a New York City gem waiting to be discovered.
