“Cosy, boutique, excellent location”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Wonderful staff, very curteous and willingful. The renovated hotel is classic, and shows great class and taste design-wise, very accomodating to couples. The location in heart of Soho is excellent, in very close proximity to shopping, chic restaurants, and two central subway stations. They keep the place tidy and clean throughout the day. The lounge is humming and inviting.

The sole draw-back is the size of the rooms, being so tiny as to lacking a place to keep luggage above the floor. The cabinet was also small, as it also holds the safe, refrigerator and snacks. In fact, it necessitated us to request the removal of food, so that both of us could store our clothes. The problem is accentuated as the stay in NYC prolongs, since almost every vacation in NYC includes some form of shopping.....
However, in comparison to all positive attributed, I highly recommend the stay there.

Unique, beautiful, and amazing experience. This place is magical for sure plus might be the best bargain in town if you can get a reservation. Rooms are on the smaller side so be prepared, but the charm made up for that.

Lovely hotel, ideally located near Washington square park just off 5th avenue, subway for uptown and downtown about quarter of a mile away. Rooms in hotel had everything we could ask for and more. Yes the rooms are on the small side, however you are in the centre of Manhattan in a clean hotel which has a lovely restaurant and bar area at the rear and a coffee and lounge area with free wifi at the front. If ever lucky enough to come back to New York will definately say here again.

The space is beautiful, and the rooms very well appointed. Sadly, I had a room that faced 8th Street. At about 2am I had to call down for ear plugs. The reception staff ran them up quickly, and then I finally slept.

Anything from the kitchen is delicious!!! But breakfast and coffee take their time to arrive.

I would stay again, but next time with ear plugs at the ready!

Beautiful rooms, luxury linens and excellent service however the rooms are tiny. Nowhere to work in the room apart from on lap. Internet speed was slow too. Boutique value if you don't mind a small room.

Yup, everyone is right. This hotel has all you need provided you don't want to spend all day in your room - and if you are in NYC why would you want to do that? Small rooms that work, nice restaurant, buzzy bar, slightly left-field vibe. GREAT location and some GDP coffee shops, neighbourhood cafés close by. Worked for me during my three days in May 2014. Would recommend.

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
