If you’d like to lounge in New York’s “most boldly lavish hotel”, look no further than the Mark Hotel Penthouse, located just steps away from Central Park.
The penthouse is an insane 12,000 square feet of luxurious materials and stylish design, the largest of its kind in the U.S.Originally, The Mark was selling this two-story penthouse (which occupies all of the 16th and 17th floor) for a whooping $60 million in 2009. However, because not a single buyer came forward, the hotel decided to rent out the penthouse, making it the largest suite in the U.S. It also charges a ridiculous $75,000 per night, making it also the most expensive.
Every piece of furniture in this five-bedroom penthouse was made according to French designer Jacques Granges’ specifications. It’s absolutely stunning – just take a look at this beautiful, cosy living room. With its flowing cream drapery and zebra-stripe pillows, it’s the perfect place to read a book…or read about yourself in the tabloids since, if you’re staying here, you’re probably famous.If you’re in the mood to be lulled by the sound of music, slide on over to the grand piano. Alternatively, you can hire a musician to play it for you because if you can comfortably rent out this penthouse, you have enough left over to hire a struggling musician- have some heart!Flooded with natural light from above, the dining room in this enormous penthouse has enough seats and tables to accommodate 24 people.The Master suite boasts a free-standing fireplace, its own sitting room and two dressing areas with walk-in closets, with a bathroom featuring heated floors as well as his-and-her vanity sinks. If you head up the sloping grand staircase (designed by Eric Schmitt) , it’ll take you to one of the best views Manhattan has to offer.The 2,500 square foot terrace has a marvellous view of the New York City skyline and Central Park. During your stay, you can also arrange to have a meal prepared by three-Michelin-star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.With the cheapest room at The Mark’s clocking in at just under $500 per night, it’s no wonder this grand penthouse is available for rent for a whooping $75,000 a night!
