See Inside New York City’s Most Expensive Hotel | Secret Lives Of The Super Rich

Posted by


We’re about to take you inside of New York City’s most expensive hotel room. Where some of the insane perks include a 70-foot sailboat, your own private ice skating rink, and a suite that’s the size of a mansion. Checking into this suite costs $75,000 per night. He’s not joking. It’s on top of the Mark Hotel in Manhattan. Right now we’re headed up to the 16th floor to check it out. We also did some homework to find the cheapest room in the hotel. And some digging to find things you can do here less that 10 bucks or even free. And we’ll share those in a minute. But first, let’s get off this elevator and show you what you can get for 75 grand a night. Wow. Interesting. So let’s see what’s behind door number one and door number two. Let’s do it. Wow. Oh, look at those ceilings. This room is huge. The second you walk in, it feels like you’ve stepped into a giant mansion in New York City. No one would ever believe this is a hotel room. That’s because its 10,000 square feet. And the ceiling height in the living room is 26 feet. I’ve never seen anything like this. Me neither. There’s this library lounge area and a massive formal dining room. Have you ever thrown a dinner party at a hotel room? I wish. This is like a maze. I know. Let’s go check out the bedrooms now. The penthouse has five bedrooms total. And the one we’re in now is one of two master suites. Look at this fireplace. Really cool. The peek-a-boo fireplace. Up next, the master bathroom. So, there’s no shower head. What happens when I flip this switch? Uh, let’s find out. You would wash your hair here like this? The tub in here is filled by a water spout built into the ceiling. This is about to get next level, literally. There’s a sun room up here. And a 2,500 square foot wrap around terrace with views of central park. Now, for some of The Mark’s over-the-top bonuses. Guests f the penthouse can have their private rooftop turned into a skating rink for free. It’s not real ice, it’s synthetic ice. That never melts. And because it’s NOT ice it means that they can put this out for people who come and stay here even in 90 degree weather. Which is pretty crazy. This is, uh, something I learned at the Olympics with Adam Rippon. Nice, right? Very nice. And then there’s this crazy perk. The Mark’s 70-foot sailboat. So wait, this yacht is part of the 75 grand a night deal? Actually, no. You have to pay extra for that. The $75,000 already seems pretty extra to me. I know, but a two hour sail for two people is $5,000. Wow. So 75 grand a night and 5k extra for the boat ride is totally nuts. I’m dying to hear what you found out on booking the cheapest room possible here. Okay, so this is a five star hotel. Nothing here is really cheap. But that said, the cheapest time to book a room here is January, February, and March. And also in the summer when it’s not as busy. And how much was the best deal you could find? 595 bucks a night for a standard room. And here’s what that room looks like. This room is 400 square feet. That means you could fit 25 of these 400 square foot rooms into that one 10,000 square foot penthouse upstairs. Let’s check out what’s in the closet. Oh look, slippers. Slippers! Are these men’s or women’s? Umbrella Bad luck, don’t do that. Check out the bathroom in here, it’s huge. It’s got a full-size bathtub and monogrammed “M” towels for The Mark. So there is one thing that this suite and the penthouse upstairs both have in common. And that’s room service. No matter where you stay in the hotel, it’s provided by Jean-Georges. If you don’t know the name, he’s considered one of the top chefs in the world. Here’s what we found on his room service menu. Least expensive thing for breakfast is a half a chilled grapefruit for $10. Let’s see what the most expensive item for dinner is on this menu. The roasted organic free range chicken, whole chicken $90. Alright, enough with the expensive stuff. Now, let’s talk about what you can get here for dirt cheap. And for that, we start of front with the Mark parks a hotdog cart. A very fancy cart that serves up five-star dogs for just 6 bucks. Just like the restaurant and the room service here, this hotdog car is run by Jean-Georges. So these are gourmet wieners. And they come with some fancy toppings. So I got an organic chicken hotdog with the works. Sweet. And spicy. It’s really good. I like the sriracha. So, does Jean-Georges make a good hotdog? It’s probably the best hotdog that I’ve ever had. So 75 grand gets you one night in the penthouse or about 12,500 of those hotdogs. Although, I think one hotdog is plenty. And whether you’re a guest at The Mark or not, the next deal is totally free. You can’t beat zero bucks. Tucked away on the second floor is a five-star shoeshine. Where both of us got our shoes cleaned, buffed, and shined. By a guy named Harry. I also challenged Chris to come up with a much cheaper alternative to The Mark’s $5,000 boat ride. And I delivered big-time with an option that’s completely free. It’s probably going to be a lot more fun. Now this is a stretch but just go with it. And it has nothing to do with The Mark Hotel at all. But just like the sailboat, you’re on the same river with the same views. It’ll definitely be cheap. Only instead of being on a yacht, you’re in a kayak. Okay, it’s not The Mark’s sailboat, but it’s $5,000 cheaper. Both take off from lower Manhattan. And that’s where the similarities end. He tells me that this is like the equivalent of going out on the yacht and now he’s like “well the yacht’s much better.” I mean, on the yacht you have Jean-Georges meals, have champagne. Here you can’t get champagne but you do get a nice view of the, uh, the west side. I actually put some champagne in my water bottle. Oh, you did? Yeah. Yup. So this is… champagne toast. To Chris rowing me around. So, I spot an orange kind of floating past out kayak. I pluck it out of the water and I jokingly offer it to Ray. And watch what he does. Yeah, it’s not bad. Half a grapefruit at The Mark was 10 bucks. That whole orange floating in the Hudson was totally free. Yeah. So you can definitely blow a ton of money at The Mark. $75,000 for one night in the penthouse, Five grand for a two hour boat ride, Ten bucks on half a grapefruit, And 90 bucks on a chicken. Bringing your one-day tab to over $80,000. $80,100 to be exact. Or you can do The Mark on a major budget. Walk over to try the six dollar gourmet hotdog. While you’re there, get your shoes shined for free. Don’t forget to tip. And then, hit the Hudson on a free kayak. And if you’re lucky, something free and tasty might float by. Bringing you’re total tab to Six bucks. We really want to know Would you eat an orange that happens to be floating randomly in the Hudson? Let us know in the comments section below.
