The Experience

Instinctively cool and chic like its hotelier Sean MacPherson, The Marlton Hotel effortlessly taps into Greenwich Village’s fundamental cool and attracts a crowd that’s equally varied.

The Scene

Though the area is decidedly less bohemian than it once was, Greenwich Village still marches to the beat of its own drummer. The Village itself feels markedly different from the rest of Manhattan with its relatively low-rise “skyline” and somewhat jumbled streetmap punctuated by unexpected bursts of art. Washington Park, a mainstay of the New York cultural scene and the beating heart of Greenwich Village, is just a block away from The Marlton; even if you’ve never been before, you’ve definitely seen the Washington Arch and permanent chess tables in cinema and general images of New York. While you won’t easily find the liberal hotbed of reform and far-left ideas of yesteryear, you can at least enjoy the history---which is embraced by even by celebrity residents---and catch an Off Broadway or an often counter-culture Off-Off-Broadway show.

The Concept

Hotelier Sean MacPherson is just that cool through and through; it shows in his latest addition to the burgeoning New York boutique scene in Hotel Marlton (which he designed himself). It’s quite on-trend and feels very much in the moment and not stuck in a fuzzy made-up past. The Marlton remembers its time as a Beatnik hub in the 1970s and also its days as a freshman dorm, choosing to honor both by going its own way: a mini Ritz in Parisian style while striving to keep its rates reasonable (bearing in mind its pedigree, location, and thoughtful design), attracting a wider range of guests than the standard “in” crowd. We positively adore the unique vibe in the unexpected address. Fashion flocks to Margaux, a Mediterranean-style eatery bringing together California and Lebanon inside what appears to be a laid-back French brasserie with a healthy, earthy menu. Stop by for brunch, get the cauliflower custard and if it’s sunny, dining in the solarium is a must.

The Look

The Marlton’s appeal comes from the sheer simplicity and elegance of its design. If you’re craving space, this is not the place to be. Still, the beauty is in the details---a golden hand holding a lamp out beside the bed, a shell sconce lamp, elaborate crown moulding. Black tiles, white marble, and gold turn-of-the-century plumbing rule the simple yet charming bathrooms while the rooms add a pop of French blue in the headboards and a warm herringbone wood floor. There’s a dash of romance in the atmosphere in the intimacy of the space or just the right touch of gilt that doesn’t overwhelm (an absolute must when the space is this small). The Penthouse Suite possesses the best views by far of the Village with its expansive patio---and that’s why you’d want to book it. Don’t expect the Penthouse Suite to be obscenely spacious, but the addition of a seating area that’s larger than the bedroom is lovely.

In Short

The Marlton is more interested in bringing affordable luxuries and timeless style that’s not so much exclusive as inclusive. Greenwich Village finally has a destination hotel that effortlessly brings together travelers and locals in the name of style.

What Stands Out

  • Classic French-inspired design that’s on-trend
  • Popular restaurant Margaux offers healthy Mediterranean fare (but it’s far more than hummus)
  • The espresso bar across from the front desk serves up Ferndell coffee from LA
  • Eclectic guests reminiscent of the old days in Greenwich Village

Know Before You Go

  • Rooms are very small but well-appointed
  • Not especially family-friendly due to size (though children are absolutely welcome)

Reviews for The The Marlton

Editorial Reviews

Vanity Fair
"...Whether guests come to the Marlton to worship the Beats or to channel sublimely dissolute historical expats, the hotel shines once again as a badge of American creativity at its most vibrant—and most ill-behaved..."
NY Times
"...Much the way the Ace Hotel became a canteen for young techies or the Lambs Club is the lunchtime home for Condé Nast editors and media executives, the Marlton (along with the Sant Ambroeus on Lafayette Street or Narcissa at the Standard) is suddenly mobbed with people from the fashion industry for after-work drinks, dinner and weekend brunch..."
