The Mark is located in the heart of Manhattan’s most elegant part, just one block from Central Park.
"superb design trumps all!"
this Jacques Grange designed hotel is a visual and functional delight. the reviews that complain about absentee doormen are right, the problem should be fixed. now let me rave about every detail in this wonderful place. the elevator cabs are works of art, the lobby is iconic, the hallways.....oh they are a wonder of mirror and incredibly well done mill work and metal casings that work so well heavy hotel traffic doesn't result in wear and tear. rooms have drawer style refrigerator and freezers in all rooms, what a convenience. even the tiniest room has the most useful cafe table, my new desk, dining table, dressing table, genius!!! window shades, electric as they should be. bathrooms, in every design magazine for a reason. Lefroy Brooks fixtures that are being maintained by housekeeping nicely. jean george restaurant downstairs is very good and supports room service, check. nice gym, check. smart smart smart beautiful design really does make a difference!! cheap imitations can't compete. bravo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Great UES experience"
Of all the top-end hotels in this neighborhood (Surrey, Carlyle, Mark, etc) the Mark is the most consistently excellent. And the bathrooms are FANTASTIC. Bar is buzzy, staff are great, rooms very comfortable. But those bathrooms' The best.
"What a bummer!"
I have dined many times at The Mark. And usually it is better than the average rating that I am giving it. I had Thanksgiving dinner with out of town friends at The Mark last year. Our friends were raving. So disappointed in last week's dinner with friends. The Mark has a very active bar scene that spills into 77th Street. Once you fight your way into the dining room, service was indifferent and very slow. The busboy seemed to be challenged by the difference between still and sparkling water. The poorly trained waiter was unable to put bread on the table because "that's not how we do it." Then he managed to confuse my medium rare steak with the medium one that my friend ordered. The beef was tough. Another friend's lamb chops were cooked to a cinder. There was a glacial quality to the meal. And all of this did not come cheaply. For now, I think that I will stick to brunch at The Mark. Eggs shouldn't be too much of a challenge for present management of The Mark.
"First rate on all fronts! "
Staff, room decor, restaurant, front desk...all scored a 10 in my experience . Check in front desk people were super at Ck. in, hotel room had everything you ask for , bathroom was spacious designed to high end stds. And the technology in the room was first rate. One small suggestion....you need some softer pillows as well as the larger firmer pillows provided . The. Breakfast room was Terrific as well as the quality and variety of the menu provided....this is a 5 Star hotel providing a level of service and product you would expect for price....great job by all.
"Contemporary and elegant hotel"
The Mark is a newer, contemporary and elegant hotel on Madison Avenue and 77th Street East in Manhattan. The Met Breyer Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park are in walking distance. Rooms are modern, but not "cold" in their design and spacious. The baths are also very nice. The restaurant and room service were very good (room service is a bit on the expensive side and for some reason the meals for room service came on trays instead of a cart). The staff is very polite and attentive. For some reason numerous employees seemed to be standing at the entrance without a real task - that was a bit unusual. I can surely recommend this hotel if you are looking for a newer and more contemporary hotel.
