Our favorite hotel in New York has to be the stylish boutique hotel, The Mark Hotel, located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. It is where we run to every year to do some pre-Christmas shopping with a child or two in tow. The location for us is unique and convenient for our children as it is next to Central Park and the shops are literally on your doorsteps – perfect for mums with strollers unlike the concrete jungle of mid-town which can be extremely stroller unfriendly. Other pluses include the Jean-Georges restaurant which we love for breakfast, lunch and dinner located next to the lobby downstairs, easy with an infant not to venture to far out in the evenings.
New York, itself, isn’t baby or child friendly for a lot of reasons so we really do appreciate a hotel like The Mark Hotel that is accommodating towards its little guests. This summer, The Mark Hotel is organising a slumber for families with children. We just hope that they can offer this during the Christmas period later this year too.
Suite guests with children at The Mark will be treated to*:
#A customized black-and-white striped teepee tent set up in room including house-made chocolate milk and cookies
#Complimentary breakfast in bed each morning for the whole family from The Mark Restaurant by Jean-Georges
#A selection of family movies to choose from for a movie night while mom and dad enjoy a romantic dinner at The Mark Restaurant by Jean Georges
For families, The Mark also offers custom-designed strollers, a new selection of welcome amenities from Zittles, whimsical rides and gourmet picnics next door in Central Park with The Mark Custom Bikes and The Mark Pedicabs, among many other luxuries. Moreover, The Mark’s Concierge will be happy to arrange for services such as access to the best family-oriented destinations in New York City, child-care and baby-sitting.
