Should you require truly exceptional short-term accommodation on New York’s Upper East Side (not exactly deficient in jaw-dropping real estate to begin with, so “truly exceptional” better mean something here), The Mark (www.themarkhotel.com; from $795) offers for your consideration its reinvented Penthouse Suite ($75,000 a night).


At more than 12,000sq ft – not including the 2,500sq ft roof terrace – it is America’s largest hotel penthouse, with lavish interiors signed by that most exemplary of taste arbiters, Jacques Grange, who has custom-designed every last piece of furniture and fixture. It’s not every traveller who needs a sitting room that can, at a pinch, convert into a grand ballroom, but for those who might, The Mark is now the place.
