The iconic Mark Hotel, which reopened its doors on June 15th, has been ranked #1 City Hotel in the Continental United States and #1 Hotel in New York City by Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards for 2020.
These prestigious rankings follow a long list of awards and accolades The Mark has received since its reopening 10 years ago after the property, located in one of Manhattan’s most elegant and discreet neighborhoods in the heart of the Upper East Side, was reimagined by a team led by Izak Senbahar, quickly becoming the hotel of choice for a clientele of global power brokers after a bold renovation by French interior designer Jacques Grange.
“We are doubly honored to receive two major awards, namely – Best Hotel in New York and Best City Hotel in the US – by Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards for 2020. The Mark Hotel is the product of the continuous effort of many creative people and the daily hard work of our professional, dedicated and most caring staff,” said Izak Senbahar, adding, “A special thanks goes to Jacques Grange and a large team of artists and artisans, curated by Pierre Passebon, who helped us design and create this timeless, iconic hotel. Our management team, staff, creative team, and collaborators, including Michelin star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, beauty entrepreneur Frédéric Fekkai and master perfumer Frédéric Malle, are the very reason for our success. We also thank Travel + Leisure readers for selecting The Mark as the Best Hotel in New York and the United States.”
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards, whose winners are selected every year through a reader’s survey that asks respondents to vote for their favorite travel experiences.
