The Mark Hotel’s Penthouse Suite has been transformed into a winter wonderland with the installation of a skating rink on its beautiful terrace for the private use of its occupiers.
Ice skating is a time-honored tradition of the holiday season, and now The Mark is offering the chance to escape the crowds with your very own rink. Guests staying in the Penthouse will have exclusive access to a skating rink that boasts wonderful views of Central Park and the New York skyline.
Already one of the biggest and best suites in New York, The Mark Penthouse has brought the best of the city’s holiday traditions within its 12,000-square-feet of space. The ice rink forms just a small part of its curated ‘Penthouse Holiday Spectacular’ experience.
Guests will be treated to a host of incredible festive experiences, including a private screening of a Christmas classic, an exclusive rendition of The Nutcracker in the Penthouse’s Great Room, and a four-course holiday suite created by the hotel’s Michelin-star chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
The Mark will also provide a Juilliard-trained pianist to serenade family and friends on the Penthouse’s grand piano while the world-renowned photographer Alexei Hay will be taking family photos to ensure the memories last a lifetime.
There is also a range of adventures designed specifically for children, such as a holiday playroom by FAO Schwarz. The room will be full of toys and games for the kids to play with and take home. There is also the option to have a private shopping experience around the famous toy store.
Similar experiences have been added for adults, of course, including an after-hours shopping spree at Bergdorf Goodman, a menu of luxurious services by The Mark’s in-house beauty salon by Frédéric Fekkai and private fitness classes to sweat off the inevitable excesses.
