Overview

Old World charm meets Greenwich Village in this former SRO, which now draws the in-the-know to its clubby townhouse interiors and lively bar scene

The Lowdown

Elegant, old-fashioned, atmospheric: these are bywords at Marlton House, which feels like the brownstone of a classy friend who loves monogrammed, high-thread-count sheets and wood-burning fires. Rooms here are beautiful, with crown moldings and oak herringbone floors, but they’re tiny. Still, the location is so central you won’t be spending much time in them, though you will want to hang out in the lobby, with its wood paneling and leather chairs, and in the bar, which is so timelessly beautiful you’ll find yourself snapping photos while the ice melts in your (lovingly crafted) cocktail. Being a guest bumps you to the head of the list for a table at the hotel restaurant, Margaux, which has a Parisian bistro feel with a Cali-inspired menu that’s heavy on kale and salsa verde as well as handmade pastas and artisanal cheeses. The sun room is the perfect spot for a leisurely lunch with a bottle of white.

In the Area

Snugly tucked into the heart of Greenwich Village, this hotel is exquisitely positioned for exploring New York on foot (though it’s just a couple of minutes from several subway stops). Caffeinate first: there’s a Stumptown Coffee Roasters just down the block and the cute, sunny Third Rail café on the other side of Washington Square Park. The Park itself is terrifically accessible, just a block away, and good for a jog, too (the hotel has no gym). Make time for happy hour at Analogue, a wine and cocktail bar across the street that also offers lively cocktail-making classes. If you prefer beer, Arts & Crafts Beer Parlor is steps away, and it’s for die-hard hops enthusiasts: think 24 beers on tap and extremely knowledgeable staff. High-end shopping on Fifth Avenue is 10 minutes from the hotel, but the quirky boutiques of the Village are closer and more fun. Or save your money for a dinner at Blue Hill, a townhouse with a much-lauded New American menu of locally sourced, seasonal ingredients, and a spectacular wine list from artisanal producers.

Weekend in New York

This is a great small boutique hotel tucked away in Greenwich Village. The rooms are small but the hotel is so quaint that it doesn’t matter. The staff is terrific, there is a coffee bar in the lobby and breakfast is included. The Marlton is one of my favorite hotels in the city. The neighborhood has great restaurants and you can walk to Washington Square.

Great hotel in perfect location

Great hotel in a perfect location near Greenwich Village. It has a very Art Deco feel and the rooms are lovely - with nice size bathrooms. There is a great breakfast provided - and whilst styled as ‘continental’ it really kept us full all morning. Bar is great at night with a cool atmosphere. Would recommend and return.

Fabulous!

This hotel is beautiful . The queen room was perfect -so pretty, super comfy bed/ bedding and a faux fur throw on it ! Nice touch. The room was immaculate. Bathroom shower was a surprise — so big ! The room was also so quiet.
The staff is outstanding ! From the minute I arrived and had my bag brought to my room until I checked out with my complimentary breakfasts in hand I knew I was in the right place.
Fabulous breakfast is included. The bar had Old Fashioneds on tap! what’s not to love about that? My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay here this past week and will definitely return. Thank you, Marlton . You are our new favorite in the city. J Land
