The Mark Penthouse, The Mark Hotel in New York City, US

If The Mark sounds familiar, it’s probably because this is where Meghan Markle held her star-studded baby shower back when she was pregnant with Archie in 2019.

The suite is set over two floors and features five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a stately dining room, full-sized kitchen and a 2,500 square-foot rooftop terrace with views across the New York skyline.

Booking bonuses include exclusive use of the private ice skating rink at The Mark’s roof terrace during the festive period and an exclusive charter of the hotel’s century-old sailboat.
