The Mark Hotel is a luxury hotel, situated at 25 East 77th Street, at Madison Avenue, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York City. [1] Originally constructed in 1927 in the Renaissance Revival style, the building was purchased by Izak Senbahar of Alexico Group and Simon Elias in 2006 and the building's interiors were reimagined by French designer Jacques Grange in 2009. [2]

In addition to housing 100 hotel rooms priced from $795 per night and 56 suites priced from $1,600 per night., [3] the building features a Jean Georges Vongerichten restaurant and bar, a Frédéric Fekkai salon, John Lobb shoe care services, and an exclusive scent by Federick Malle. Jacques Grange commissioned seven international artists and artisans, including Ron Arad, Eric Schmitt, Paul Mathieu, Mattia Bonetti, and Vladamir Kagan to create exclusive furnishings and artwork for The Mark collection.[4]

In 2015 The Mark Hotel unveiled its Penthouse Suite designed by Jacques Grange, on the 16th and 17th floors. At over 10,000 square feet it is the largest Hotel Suite in the United States and is priced at $75,000 per night making it the most expensive hotel suite in the world. With 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, great room, library, formal dining room, gourmet kitchen and four fireplaces, it affords exclusive access to a 2,500 square foot private terrace overlooking the City Skyline, Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

In addition to the Penthouse Suite, Jacques Grange has recently designed The Mark Five Bedroom Terrace Suite priced at $50,000 per night and The Mark Three Bedroom Terrace Suite priced at $40,000 per night. Both Suites are located on the 14th floor of The Hotel and feature terraces facing the City Skyline and Central Park.
