  • Overview Details

    This may be the perfect package for art aficionados. New York’s iconic art-deco hotel, The Mark, is now offering their guests an experience to extensively explore one of the world’s most elusive art scenes.

    Upon arrival from your pre-arranged flight, step into the resplendent lobby and be greeted by bronze works from Patrice Dargel, as well as a painted photograph by Francois-Marie Banier, who shot to fame for his exhibits in Centre Pompidou, Paris. With such pieces on display, it thus comes to no surprise that The Mark was voted the Best Hotel for Style in the Conde Nast Gold List 2015.

    Check into the room you've booked, and settle down for a bit. The hotel is strategically situated on Madison Avenue, a few blocks away from the world-renown Museum Mile – a collection of ten museums along Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue. Arguably housing one of the largest art collections around, you may easily visit artists from American photographer Alfred Stieglitz to Chinese prince, scholar, painter and calligrapher during the Yuan Dynasty, Zhao Mengfu. Your private tour guide will be sure to expound on the key works of art at the museum of your choice.

    After a morning of museum hopping, head back to the hotel and enjoy an Artist’s afternoon tea, served in the comfort of your room, whilst you browse Jean- Philippe Delhomme’s book titled Cultivated Life. Alternatively, soak in the panoramic view of Central Park, set against the setting sun. This, in our opinion, is a visual work of art by nature, and a treat in itself. If you’ve booked the Mark Five Bedroom Terrace Suite, you’ll also enjoy stunning city views from the living area and balcony.

    The package also includes an exclusive access to New York’s vibrant art community and will spoil you with entries to special exhibitions at MoMA, studio tours with popular artists, as well as private gallery viewings. Of course, a chauffeur will be ferrying you between these appointments.

    Robb Report readers also receive an added touch of exclusivity. To fully appreciate Central Park in its entirety, you’ll be ferried in a stylish The Mark Pedicab to Central Park, a mere five-minute journey from the hotel. As you’re given a tour round the outskirts of the park, pick your favourite spot and hop off with a gourmet picnic hamper from The Mark Restaurant by Jean-Gorges.
