- The decor feels historic, yet fresh and bold. The Bar area has the most beautiful wood panelled walls with YSL posters on the walls between gorgeous shaded sconces over red booths. The lobby next to the bar has long bookshelves filled with great books to steal while you’re there - I sat and read by the fire with a cocktail and it was the perfect quiet evening before I got ready to go out for the night. There is also an espresso bar there for the mornings - crucial! The Marlton was designed by hotelier Sean MacPherson (think Jane & The Bowery Hotel).
- Rooms are teeny tiny, but I suppose this is how they were in the historic building and I commend them for keeping the bones of the famous Marlton House. The rooms are exactly what you need when you come to NYC for a weekend visit. You’re never in your hotel room, and when you are, you just want beautiful sheets and strong water pressure! Boxes ticked there for sure. Impressively, there are 107 rooms, they did a great job at keeping the hotel feel boutique with that many in the house.
- Staff were friendly and perfectly hands-off. The whole experience feels more like your own little apartment building with a delicious restaurant and lively lobby on the ground floor.
- The restaurant, Margaux, is delicious and feels a bit like New Orleans in NYC. The conservatory out the back is gorgeous and the perfect place to enjoy brunch on the weekends.
- The building is from circa 1900, known then at the Marlton House, and housed famous artists and writers, like Jack Kerouac (he wrote Subterraneans here in 1958), making the Village what it was.
