A recent renovation has modernised The Mark Hotel’s elegance without diminishing any of its classic appeal


For all of the praise lavished upon it, The Mark always had a stuffy aesthetic quality, fitting in with the Georgian styling of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. However, the hotel’s service has always, seemingly without exception, been a gold standard. Now, the style matches all else that is right on The Mark.

Interior designer Jacques Granges’ personal philosophy is perfectly realised here. The craftsmanship displayed is exquisite, with impeccable finishes. His signature bold colour-splashed geometric shapes adorn The Mark, where elegance is most evident in its signature lobby: a marble floor in ultra-long, thin, black-and-white stripes flanked by accents such as polished-nickel Mattia Bonetti wall sconces, and Paul Mathieu sofas.

In the rooms, modern amenities abound, such as touch-screen panels controlling temperature, audio-visual components (including high-end Bang & Olufsen stereos), and even the curtains. Custom kitchens by Pierro Lissoni, with black granite counter tops, occupy the suites. The Mark’s cocktail bar is the ‘place to be’ in the somewhat staid Upper East Side, a perfect respite after a shopping run along neighbouring Madison Avenue.
