Located in the prestigious Upper East Side of Manhattan, The Mark Hotel is a stunning, star-studded location that has seen its fair share of celebrities. But the best room in the entire place is not a room at all but a stunning 12,000-square-foot penthouse with views of New York’s skyline. Priced at a mouthwatering $75,000 (£63,000) per night, the suite is not only New York’s most expensive hotel room but it has hosted the likes of ex-Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, actress Katie Holmes and The Duchess of Sussex herself. Meghan’s extravagant baby shower was planned by no other than tennis champion Serena Williams and included a night in the top notch suite.

So, what does $75,000-a-night get you on the corner of Madison Avenue?
The Mark Hotel calls the suite an “oasis in the sky” which has its own private lift that takes guests up to the 16th floor to access the famous penthouse suite.
The lift leads to the foyer which has for doors leading to different parts of the 12,000-square-foot penthouse.
Just before entering the lounge area, there is a seating room with a grand piano which leads to one of the most incredible aspects of the suite.
The lounge is an airy room with a plethora of windows, a billiard table, multiple seating areas and a 26-foot-tall cathedral ceiling.
The penthouse suite also includes a library which has a cozy seating area that is perfect for taking some timeout away from the busy city.
Opposite the bookshelves is one of the suite’s four fireplaces which were designed to make the space feel more homely than hotel-like.
The owner of The Mark Hotel Izak Senbahar told Fortune: “Our guests live truly global lives and also truly understand and expect rarified luxury and real comfort so we wanted to create a majestic space within the hotel that is the pinnacle of luxury in terms of design and amenities but also feels more like a majestic residence than a hotel suite.”

Through the library, there is a a formal dining room that seats up to 24 people at a time.
Each room and most the furniture in the luxury penthouse was designed by French interior designer Jacques Grange who also designed the dining table.
The kitchen in the suite is surprisingly quite basic but there’s a reason for that.
Guests who stay in the penthouse also have access to in-room dining which includes caviar and can either book a private mixologist for $3,000 (£2526) to $5,000 (£4211) or book a 10-course dining experience with Michelin-star chef Jean-Georges for upwards of $10,000 (£8423).

Up the stairs, is a beautiful conservatory which offers an exclusive view of the New York City skyline.
The room has sofas, armchairs, a fireplace, a wet bar and access to a 2,500 square-foot terrace with views that overlook Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
During the winter months, guests can also enjoy the ice rink which is installed especially for guests.
The whole suite has a muted, neutral colour scheme and consists of five bedrooms which can house 15 guests.
The master bedroom has a floating fire place, an office area and a huge king size bed.
But one of the most amazing aspects of the suite is the master bathroom which has a large, walk-in shower on the left as you walk in, two sinks, a bidet and a deep soaking bath tub that has a window so you can look out onto New York while you relax.
