On the Mark
The Mark Hotel on Madison Avenue at 77th Street is the sort of hotel a girl could happily live in. Firstly, there’s The Mark restaurant by Jean-Georges (for reasons which are two-fold: fabulous food and hot scene). Then, there’s the hotel’s chic new look. Jacques Grange, the French design wizard whose previous clients include Yves Saint Laurent and Caroline of Monaco, has treated the hotel, founded in 1927, to a $150 million facelift – cue marble bathrooms and a plush shiny lobby. Then there are the beds, like huge fluffy white clouds, with plump pillows embroidered with “M”, and, finally, Barneys is within walking distance, while Intermix is a mere stone’s throw away. One question: when can we move in?
