Rank is a vague word. In most cases senator is "ranked" higher than mayor.

I'm going to assume you mean by who has more power and influence. If that is the question, then for mayors it really depends on what city, but in most cases, I'd say the senator is ranked higher. There are only 2 per state, whereas there are hundreds of cities per state with mayors (under population 5000 places are not allowed to have mayors). Mayors also work closely with the city council and don't really make all the decisions. A senator of even sparsely populated states carry a vote in congress and directly contributes to passing laws. Senators work in the White House impacting the country as a whole, whereas mayors can only make local decisions particular to that city.

That said, mayor of New York City is still relatively powerful and influential.
