“Small but Classy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

This is a beautiful small hotel full of character and atmosphere. The staff were friendly and attentive especially Sean and William at the front desk/concierge.

We loved the location. Just moments from Washington Square and Greenwich Village, and easy access to the subway system. Plenty of nice restaurants and bars close by, we especially enjoyed the sushi restaurant just a couple of doors up.

While certainly small the rooms were cozy and well appointed and spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and great A/C. The linens, toiletries and bathrobes were all top quality.

Our only negative is breakfast which on each of the 3 mornings was chaotic with rather stressed waiting staff. Apart from that small gripe I have to say that we would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend it to friends and families travelling to NYC.

I have stayed in many hotels in Manhattan.I felt for the services provided The Marlton was overpriced.Rooms are extremely small.Hotel does not have room service nor provide tea/coffee in the room.The location is good but did not come up to my expectations.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor can be acsessed by staircase.There is only one small lift for higher floors...

The gradual gentrification of 8th street has had its ups and downs. Happened to stop into what was an old flophouse for most of my life after I noticed that it too had been redone. Very nice indeed. Pleasant entrance with fireplace and a quiet place for breakfast and lunch in the back under glass. The fake greenery could use a little more sophistication, but the idea is nice. Sort of Mediterranean/Caribbean with space between the tables and a pleasant acoustic. Dinner is jumping. Excellent waitstaff that has made this my new go to place for breakfast and a lingering inexpensive lunch. Less of a scene than Balthazar, Pastis, etc, and a more interesting. healthy menu that they will fine tune for you, i.e. lots of kale, quinoa, avocado, etc. if you are so inclined. Good coffee and passable espresso. More pleasant dining spot all-around than the North Square which had been my hotel spot for guests.

1. Quaint entrance and bar
2. Tiny room but clean
3. Amazing restaurant downstairs for breakfast!
4. Room service was not very attentive. Had to ask for slippers three times before we got them, finally on the second day.

My husband and I spent a delightful weekend recently at this hotel. From an incredibly early check in to friendly accommodating staff and everything in between including nice rooms with comfortable beds and great sheets to a great night scene and restaurant; we could not have asked for more. A european flair in its design made the entire experience charming. Highly recommend and we will definitely be going back.

Lovely hotel - beautifully decorated and very well located near Soho and the Village and easy stroll to Meatpackers district and the High Line. Be prepared - the rooms are tiny! But very well arranged so you miss for nothing except space. Restaurant and bar are terrific. The whole vibe is like a small boutique Parisian hotel.

What a wonderful place to stay! Special in every way. White glove service at every turn. The building is magnificently renovated! Someone very clever designed the interior spaces maintaining the beauty of the past, but mixing it up with nouvelle touches.

With the Marlton Hotel, located in the heart of Greenwich Village, comes the latest vision of Hotelier Sean MacPherson. This elegantly restored landmark building was formerly a home to famous artistic figures of the Bohemian and Beat movements, ‘most notably Jack Kerouac’. MacPherson redesigned the property by combining the original architecture with updated French influences for a look inspired by Paris and Greenwich Village history. This “baby grand” hotel guest rooms are charmingly petite yet grand in décor. Guest rooms feature herringbone wood floors, brass fixtures, crown moldings, and marble bathrooms.The ground floor of the property features a 100-seat restaurant with a coffee bar. ... more   less
