Formerly known as the Marlton House, a Greenwich Village favorite of Jack Kerouac, Julie Andrews, and Maggie Smith, the Marlton Hotel is another renovation-minded venture of Sean MacPherson, the whiz behind the Bowery, Jane, and Maritime Hotels. It has 107 rooms (“small, but our ideas our big,” says the hotel’s website) that present a minimalist take on Belle Epoque Paris, with brass light fixtures, oak floors, and eco-fur throws in virtually every one. There is a distinctly communal vibe at the Marlton: during the day, guests freely congregate in the fireplace-warmed lobby for cocktails or espresso, and at night locals visit to dine on French-Mediterranean cuisine at the hotel’s restaurant, Margaux. The Marlton’s location on Washington Square Park can’t be beat, and it’s worth noting that rooms here can be booked at a fraction of the cost of those at the Bowery Hotel.
