The Mark Hotel, is a real gem, tucked away on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Great neighborhood and great location, on East 77th St. between Madison Ave. and Fifth Ave. just steps away from Central Park.
“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.” Lao Tzu
Not only do I love traveling, I love to explore my own neighborhood and really take in the surrounding sights as though for the first time! In this case, The Mark Hotel is a wonderful stop on the way to Central Park. It’s got a lot to offer both guests and neighbors alike!
Recently renovated, The Mark Hotel has a more than a new face. It features perhaps the most exclusive hot dog stand in NYC, if not the world! The Mark “Haute” Dog Stand is by Jean-Georges.
It features high-end gourmet organic chicken and grass fed beef hot dogs served with a special kimchi relish as well as other more familiar condiments. At $6 each, it’s a bit pricey for a hot dog, but well worth it as a unique eat! Highly recommended.
And, after a “haute” dog by Jean-Georges, you’re ready for a ride down Fifth Ave. for a shopping trip to Bergdorf Goodman. The Mark keeps a branded Bergdorf Goodman bike on the ready.
Very creative partnerships that enhance what is already a wonderful hotel on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. A great way to enjoy a day exploring on your own.
