The hotel was always fancy but it’s now even chicer, with a light and airy Art Deco design. We especially love the look of the pale-green bathrooms (although they have those mirror TVs we’re not so sure about).
The man responsible for the renovations is French interior designer Jacques Grange, who has worked for Yves Saint Laurent and Princess Caroline of Monaco. His room upgrades include Bang Olufson audio systems, marble soaking tubs, fine Italian linens and bedding by Quagliotti, and—in The Mark Tower Suites—kitchens equipped with appliances from Miele and Sub-Zero.
The Daila Lama might be interested to book one of these suites to house his private chef, but we think most guests would be happy to dine downstairs or order up room service from The Mark Restaurant by Jean Georges.
