If you’ve got USD75,000 to spare and fancy a night hightailing it in New York City’s most opulent hotel suite, then look no further than this five-bedroom penthouse suite at The Mark in Manhattan.
Occupying a gargantuan 12,000 sqft of living space and served by three elevators, the unit is the largest hotel suite in New York – as well as being the most expensive in the world.
The newly-opened hotel is expecting to attract the wealthiest of Middle Eastern and Asian guests. “It’s a given,” said a hotel source, that their every need shall be met and exceeded during their stay.
The Mark’s penthouse suite takes the mantel of most expensive from Geneva’s President Wilson Royal Penthouse, where room rates are marginally less at USD60,600.
Entering the New York hotel, white oak floors welcome guests into their luxury accommodation while the huge atrium and Grand Ballroom is complete with 26-foot high ceilings. A 24-seater dining room, a kitchen equipped with Miele and Gaggenau appliances, as well as access to three Michelin Star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, means that entertaining has never been so lavish.
The expansive master bedroom has its own sitting room, a free-standing fireplaces and walk-in wardrobes. Heated floors and an infinity bathtub grace the bathroom.
Perhaps one of the biggest selling points of The Mark’s penthouse isn’t inside at all – the 2,4000 sqft roof terrace enjoys panoramic views of downtown Manhattan, with Central Park, the Museum of Modern Art and the Chrysler Building all in sight.
The penthouse was originally intended to be sold as a USD60 million apartment back when the hotel itself opened in 2009. A lack of suitable buyers, however, saw the space abandoned before it was decided to transform the unit into the world’s most exclusive luxury hotel suite.
