New York City, New York

Me and my best mate
Well dressed bellhops with big smiles guard the impressive entrance to The Mark on 77th St.
Pillows for prolonged pillow fights or every permeation of sleep you can think of. The beds are as comfy as they look.
The fruit was eaten, the Pellegrino sipped, the flowers were sniffed (real) and the magazines were perused.
Bathrobes reach peak comfort levels in hotels and these bad boys did not disappoint. The heated towel rack was a pleasant touch.
Much of the furniture was made for The Mark under the watchful eye of French designer Jacques Grange. It is rumoured that Grange sat on every piece of furniture in the hotel, including the ones you're not meant to sit on.
Highly impractical mirrors for self grooming and selfies. Cool art though.
They wouldn't let us drag race these down Broadway but if you ask nicely someone from the hotel will take you downtown. Good instagram opportunity.
Do yourself a favor and take half a day to explore Central Park. The hotel is conveniently situated just a stones throw from some of the most iconic spots in the park.
Highs + Lows
The bathrooms are next level. Phone by the toilet for important business calls, marble for days, TV in the mirror, heated towel racks and a bath tub.
The staff are all impeccably dressed and very helpful.
Proximity to Central Park, undoubtedly one of New York's greatest attractions. The Mark is a great base to explore some hidden areas of the park.
Room service menu was very overpriced for what it was. Order seamless instead.
Located in the Upper East Side, so not great if you're looking to party or even a late night beer.
Can be painful to get uptown, particularly in the afternoons when midtown is gridlocked.

Artsy luxury, yet not in your face.
Proudly stands amongst mansions and Consulate Generals on the Upper East side. Close to Central Park.

No pool, but a damn good gym.
Yes, we didn't eat there but it was always busy.
Yes, cool cocktail lounge located at the entrance to the hotel.
The widest selection of candy bars I've ever seen.
Free, open and fast.
Not cheap, then again nothing is in New York.
