It’s been a bit of a weird winter, to say the least. Below zero temps in Georgia, pouring rain in Anchorage, this ‘polar vortex’ taking over the nation…so with everyone going stir crazy the last few weeks and the weather (seemingly) subsiding, I say take advantage of a lull in the temperamental season and head to New York for an indulgent weekend of luxurious perfection.

Whether you’re in the city that never sleeps for business or pleasure, it’s always nice to find a hotel that you love and sort of stick with it—everything starts to feel familiar and almost like coming ‘home’ for your next visit. The Mark is one of those rare hotels that perfects the art of a ‘home away from home’ atmosphere while also creating a luxurious environment you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere.

The Mark is housed, as it has always been, in the beautiful, 1927 landmark building at the corner of 77th Street and Madison Avenue in NYC. But inside, this luxury hotel has been completely reimagined, and given a new life and identity for the 21st century.

Newly-reborn, The Mark combines the luxury of old-world comfort, avant-garde design, up-to-the-minute technologies and an unprecedented level of personal service to create the finest five-star hotel of the 21st-century.

Drawing on the expertise of an extraordinary group of talents — foremost among them the designer Jacques Grange and the hotel’s general manager Olivier Lordonnois — The Mark Hotel is now a beacon of high French style and modern American technology and comfort.

The guest rooms and suites are private havens of quiet, understated luxury, seamlessly incorporating the latest personal technologies into Grange’s sublimely serene décor and furnishings.

The hotel has an partnership with Bergdorf Goodman to offer guests exclusive access to the store 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to cater to all shopping needs. The collaboration provides you with specialized personal shopping amenities, ranging from an urgent delivery prior to store opening, to an afterhours personal shopping appointment to accommodate last minute needs. So if you forget anything from your undergarments to your favorite blazer, don’t worry—the Mark wouldn’t force you to be unfashionable in this fashion mecca that is NYC.

For the ultimate picnic in the park, you can order a ‘lunch-to-go’ created by celebrated chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten who oversees the hotels food and beverage. Of course, you might want to wait for the snow to melt for that jaunt.

The Mark staff is incredibly attentive, the bathtubs spacious, the shoe shine complimentary, the technology Bang & Olufsen, the linens by Quagliotti and the views of Manhattan spectacular. Find your home away from home at this timeless New York hotel.
