I stayed for one night in The Marlton for a business trip and was immediately struck by the relaxed non-formula stance of this (new) hotel near Washington Square. The room wasn't large, but it wasn't small either - reminded me of a small hotel in France - but any compromise on square footage was amply made up by a very comfortable and good night's sleep. But if you have lots of work to do in your room this might not be the place for you as there's no desk (unless you're Woody Allen who writes all his scripts in bed). The minbar is stocked with every indulgence you could wish for.
The bathroom was pristine, with an air of continental lux but not overtly so. The soap and shampoo are all Cote de Bastide... what more could you ask for?! My room (203) had a huge bath-tub too and brass taps and a big shower head.
The communal areas downstairs are a bit studied with low lighting levels but that's a trifle considering the charming and helpful staff, the excellent bar - perfect vodka martini - and genuinely easy and unselfconscious atmosphere. I would happily spend a few hours here - it's just like that. What's more, the other guests looked as if they did interesting things with their lives, they weren't just the same predictable faces.
Having spent a full day out working, it was a pleasure to step back in through the front door and shed the big city. Hotels are famously, ridiculously, expensive in NYC, but the Marlton is most reasonable. I will certainly fix a room here on my next trip.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
