The Mark Hotel is officially the most expensive hotel in America, with a price tag for guests of $75,000 a night

So much of the conversation in the hospitality industry tends to surround finding the best value for money, rather than searching out the single most expensive hotel room in all of the United States.

If you happen to be the odd duck in search of the priciest accommodations in America, however, good news: we’ve found it. With a price tag of $75,000 a night, the Mark Hotel is now offering the most expensive hotel suite in America. It’s a fun escapist fantasy to learn about such things, so, if you’ll indulge us now, let’s go deeper into what makes this $75,000 hotel room so spectacular.

More About the Most Expensive Hotel in the United States

First built in 1927, the Mark Hotel is an iconic Upper East Side property that underwent a major renovation from 2006 to 2009.

While the historic exterior was untouched, the entire inner workings of the building were replaced, with interiors rethought by famed designer Jacques Grange. Popular with locals because of its Jean-Georges restaurant and Frédéric Fekkai salon, and with celebrities as the go-to gathering spot before the Met Ball, the penthouse brings a new allure to the building.

Located on the 16th and 17th floors, the 10,000-square-foot interior space, also designed by Grange, offers five bedrooms, four fireplaces, six bathrooms, and two wet bars. The living room, with 26-foot ceilings, is located in the corner tower of the building and is large enough to be converted into a full-sized grand ballroom. Outside, there’s a 2,500-square-foot rooftop terrace that overlooks Central Park.

While the penthouse is not new, this is the first time it is available to rent. “Before the paint was dry on the renovation, we had someone interested in renting it as an apartment, so it has never been publicized or even on the website,” Olivier Lordonnois, general manager for the Mark Hotel, tells Bloomberg. “We then had a family rent it for 16 months, and now it is finally ready for guests.” Lordonnis says the family got a reduced rate, due to the desired length of stay.

For comparison, a nearby 10,000-square-foot townhouse is selling for $24.75 million, while a 16-month stay at current published rates would clock in at $36.5 million.

In the same luxury stratosphere as the offering at the Mark Hotel, the Plaza offers the 4,500-square-foot, three-bedroom Royal Suite for approximately $40,000 a night. It has 24-carat gold fixtures in the bathroom and offers a fully equipped fitness room and chef’s kitchen.
The Mandarin Oriental books its two-bedroom, 3,300-square-foot Suite 5000, with a contemporary art collection curated by Whitewall magazine, for $36,000 a night. Interested guests must call to book, as it doesn’t appear on the website.
