The Mark Hotel

French architect and interior designer Jacques Granges has transformed New York’s classic Mark Hotel into a stylishly modern neighborhood scene that features a Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant, Frédéric Fekkai beauty salon, and the fashionable Bar Mark. Located in the heart of New York’s residential Upper East Side on Madison Avenue and 77th Street, the hotel—where contemporary art and furnishings seamlessly pair with opulent yet unfussy fabrics and finishes—is attracting both visitors and locals.

Following its $140 million, two-year renovation, the Mark reopened in September with 100 guest rooms and 50 suites. (Some of the suites are available for purchase as co-op apartments.) Even the entry-level rooms—which, at 400 to 500 square feet, are spacious by New York City standards—offer marble bathrooms, fine furnishings, and such state-of-the-art amenities as Bang & Olufsen 32-inch flat-screen TVs. All rooms afford views of the elegant stretch of Madison Avenue below or the tree-lined 77th Street. The Mark Hotel, 212.744.4300, www.themarkhotel.com
