The Mark in Manhattan is now home to the largest suite in America and, at $75,000 a night, the world’s most expensive too, taking the top place from luxury hotel Le Bristol in Paris. The Mark’s extravagant new penthouse suite is a five-bedroom penthouse suite spread over 12,000 sq ft and the entire 16th and 17th floors of an Upper East Side landmark building.
Its millionaire guests can enter the penthouse directly from one of the three elevators that service the suite, ushering them into white oak-floored atrium which opens to the Grand Ballroom, named for its 26ft-high ceilings. With furnishings of ebony, sycamore and nickel, fine Italian linens and bedding by Quagliotti, the master bedroom features its own sitting room with free-standing fireplace and two sprawling dressing areas with walk-in wardrobes. Each guest room is outfitted with state-of-the-art HD televisions, an audio system and a Crestron room control panel and furnished made to the specification of French interior designer Jacques Grange.
The black-and-white marble bath features double wash basins, a deep-soaking, infinity tub and separate glass shower enclosure, both with polished nickel fittings by Lefroy Brooks, the renowned British maker. Other luxury touches include heated floors and towel racks, a mirrored flat-screen television, separate telephone, and fine Italian toiletries exclusively for The Mark.
The dining room can accommodate up to 24 people and its adjacent kitchen laden with Miele and Gaggenau appliances makes it convenient for large dinner parties. Three-Michelin-starred Jean-Georges Vongerichten, who oversees The Mark’s ground-floor restaurant, can be enlisted for a private dinner event in the suite. The eat-in kitchen is specially designed by Piero Lissoni for Boffi, features custom cabinetry, black granite countertops and appliances from Gaggenau, Miele and Sub-Zero. There is also the stunning 2,400 sq ft rooftop terrace decked with a lush garden and patios and a view that stretch over to central Manhattan.
Other amenities include a private bar, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi and local calls, daily shoeshine and morning delivery of New York Times or Wall Street Journal. Round-the-clock service including a late-night suit fittings from nearby department store Bergdorf Goodman, or a private work out session with a personal trainer for a one-to-one fitness session, or a car of the guests’ choice at their disposal are some of the perks guests enjoy duration their stay.
