The Mark is the perfect combo of uptown panache and downtown chic. The hotel sparkles from top to bottom, from the striped marble floors and modernist furnishings in the lobby to the cow-print upholstery in the chic bar just off the entrance. Rooms are opulently appointed in very modern style, with plush Italian linens, Sub-Zero freezers for ice, and more closet space than most New York City apartments. Bathrooms have marble floors, decadent sunken tubs, and enough towels to dry a small nation. There's a state-of-the-art gym and a posh Frédéric Fekkai salon for blowouts and benefit-worthy color jobs. The hotel restaurant, the Mark by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, has become a bona-fide destination for well-heeled locals and neighborhood visitors alike.
