We stayed at The Mark for 1 night over Labor day weekend. The hotel had just reopened recently. During the time of our stay, it was their "soft opening" phase, where the hotel was not fully completed (restaurant, gym, bar, and hair salon were still under construction).
We were a little skeptical because the hotel was very expensive, even at a discounted price, however, we were blown away with the design and comfort of the hotel and room.
We were particularly pleased with the service that Andrea, the reception manager, showed to us. He showed us to our room and explained how everything worked.
Our room was immaculate and quite honestly the best we've ever stayed in (including Vegas). I'm not sure how the hotel looked before they closed for 2 years, but whatever happened, it was given a complete makeover.
The rooms were enormous and very modern in design. The closet space could accommodate anyone staying for about a month. The bathroom was all marble; the tub was long and deep enough for 2 people (I think), and separate shower big enough to fit a party of 5. There was a TV in the mirror of the bathroom vanity, which was very cool.
There was a telephone, scale, towel warmer, and professional hairdryer all just in the bathroom.
The room itself could be controlled by a universal remote control. The remote controlled the electric shades over the windows, the large LCD TV, Blu Ray DVD player, lights, and air conditioning.
Along with complimentary snacks (like pretzels, candy, soda, and water) we were also given a box of cookies that came from a restaurant down the street. Included in the price of the hotel was also a complimentary breakfast, which was great.
Overall we couldn't have been happier with our stay at The Mark. And if possible, it's going to be even more amazing once it's fully completed!
