Alas "The Mark" has really outlived it's time and should be razed. This was my first time staying at this famous landmark. The lobby while attractive, is remarkably tiny. My room was #1433 and while comfortable and fully functional with great views, the bathroom was really too small and cramped. In fact I can't imagine how the city plumbing inspector allowed such cramping of the sink overlapping both the toilet and tub. I kept bumping into it every time I got in and out of the shower. More importantly - there wasn't even room on the tiny glass shelf for my toiletries which I had to set up on the room desk! On the plus side, the mattress was great and bed well provisioned with fluffy pillows. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a wide array of fare. Overall though I have to rate as poor given the lack of amenities offered at the property such as would be expected at a famous landmark. Special note: Wi-Fi is a ripoff at $11.95 p/d.
