Hotel of the week
The Mark Hotel
The Mark Hotel is now home to America’s most expensive hotel suite, said Cator Sparks in Bloomberg.com. Priced at $75,000 a night, the 10,000-square-foot duplex penthouse in the 1927 Upper East Side hotel has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, four fireplaces, two bars, and a two-story living room large enough to use as a ballroom. All guests at the Mark enjoy access to a Bentley and a 70-foot sailboat, but penthouse guests get more individualized attention. They might find a rare bottle of wine waiting, or a telescope set up on the terrace for stargazing. Can the Plaza’s $40,000 suite match that?
