NEW YORK, July 9, 2020 /CNW/ — The iconic Mark Hotel, which reopened its doors on June 15th and is located in one of Manhattan’s most elegant and discreet neighborhoods in the heart of the Upper East Side, has been voted “#1 City Hotel in the Continental United States” and “#1 Hotel in New York City”in the 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 was re-imagined 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 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 of 2020. The Mark is the product of the continuous effort of many creative people and 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.
