The Marlton Hotel in New York, NY

The Marlton Hotel in New York, NY


Established in 2013.

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 update 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.

    Had a great date right in front of the fireplace - this review is for the bar and lounge area, not the hotel as a whole.  Had a great cocktail called the A-Z which was boozy complex and great and the lady had a couple well selected wines.  We nibbled on some veggie bites that were also nice.  Highly recommended for a date or small group - look forward to trying the full restaurant soon!

    For a place that's so buzzy right now the staff couldn't have been nicer and more attentive -- such a refreshing change for a hipster place. The whole place -- lounge, bar and restaurant -- is beautifully designed, comfortable and welcoming. The food is delicious and original with a fresh, local/veggie bent -- crudo was bright and flavorful, cauliflower with sunchoke chips addictive, don't miss the Farmers Board of veggie dips. Plenty of options for non vegetarians, cod was excellent so was the lamb.

    NOW RENOVATED AND REOPENED...The Marlton, located at 5 West 8th Street--just off Washington Square Park,

    The hotel offers 107 guestrooms spread over nine floors and including two penthouse suites with terraces and maintains the original architecture of the historic structure, while updating it with an eclectic refinement. The ground floor housea a 98-seat restaurant in the rear of the lobby with a skylight terrace, as well as a coffee bar.

    French influences are evident throughout the hotel. It offers its original herringbone wood floors, brass fixtures, crown moldings, chicken wire closet doors and marble bathrooms.

    Paris hotels depicted in F. Scott Fitzgerald's "Tender is the Night", Hôtel de Saints Pères and Hotel Ritz, were models for the hotel renovation.

    Well I haven't stayed here, but I've spend lots of time in the lobby/cafe/bar/restaurant. I  am in love with the design/decor of the lobby, great atmosphere as well. There are so many food and beverage options for every meal or something in between. The restaurant just opened a couple of weeks ago, and I loved what I got. I will be a repeat customer there, as well as obviously to other parts of the non-overnight parts of the hotel. Perfect location too, and while it's really nice, I like that it's not too grand. They call it a 'baby grand' hotel.

    This is the best hotel in New York. The staff, the setting, the vibe, the location, the rooms, the whiskey, and the food all contribute in bringing me to this conclusion.

    Nice bar but no restaurant, so no room service.  Comfortable bed and pillows. Bathrooms look nice, but sinks are too small for the faucet. This makes it impossible to wash your face w/o getting water on the floor.  But the tub is huge! Cute closet w/ uniquely stocked minibar.  Windows facing the street are not sound proof, street noise is a problem.   Location : close to NYU, subways, is good.

    I want this place to earn 4 stars, but they have not yet....  What a cosy, romantic place  for a drink, coffee or afternoon delight.  If you time things right you can sit in the room near the fire place. If not, the rest of the lobby area has an equally warm feeling.  Nice wine, beer and interesting soft drink  selection however the signature cocktails seemed more complex than necessary  to compliment the warm glow of the setting. Good looking, eclectic downtown crowd. Service needs work; had to ask for water and a correct check  3x.  A less honest patron would gave paid 11.98 for 3 drinks and an appetizer. As a  good neighbor who wants this place to thrive, I persisted. Welcome to the neighborhood and I will be back looking for the 4th star.   Step up the service!!

    The decor and service was top rate. We stayed in the Penthouse and highly recommend it to anyone celebrating a special day. Balcony, sitting room and large king sized bed along with an incredible massive marble tub made this experience one of the most memorable stays of our lives. Thank you to Sarah Levitt and Eric Jasper for such stand out service.

    Cozy faux fireplace setting, check. Apple computer cultish tech crowd, check. 'Amaaaazing driiiinks' (whatever that means), check. Reasonable rates, double check. I'd say if you're looking to get some free wifi, drool on your apple products and fix your beanie and nifty new urban outfitter scarf in lieu of paying for a soho house membership than you've hit the jackpot. Of course if a somewhat acceptable room size, movies in your bedroom, room service, decent staff and good service are what you're looking for then maybe you should go elsewhere. Long and short of it is if you want a low rate in a great neighborhood and need to save a buck because you spent too much on your new iPhone than this is the place for you.

    My mother and I stayed at this hotel for one night because I was performing near the hotel. But one night was all I would be able to stand at this hotel. When you walk in, the overall feel for me was like a library. Some aspects of the hotel are very old fashion. They have keys hanging up behind the concierge desk, like in old movies, but the keys themselves are a scanner not a card. The hallway smelled so clean! When we entered the room, I felt like I was a house guest in an old house, which can be nice but the room was small. One queen size bed filled up the entire room. The bathroom did not have much space to put stuff. The room was SO HOT! We had the air on as low as it would allow, and all night I slept without the blankets on because I was sweating. The location is nice because it is near Washington Square, and many nice restaurants. The hotel is very old and filled with history. Many famous people stayed there many years ago.  
    If you have to stay here like we did, it's bearable. It would have been better if the air conditioner worked. But overall it was just an okay hotel. Stay elsewhere if you can find something better!!

    Stayed in the penthouse last night... Absolutely fab. Amazing views of the city, gorgeous balcony. If you wanna surprise your significant other with a special night- I recommend the penthouse at the Marlton. Very comfortable bed, gorgeous bathroom. Beautiful suite with sitting room separate from the bedroom. When I woke up the next morning, I wondered down to the lobby for a latte and a cheddar & kale scone (delicious). The front desk called their car company to take me to the airport later that morning making my departure very easy. Casual, comfortable, trendy and cool. Great location. Wonderful lobby/restaurant/bar to hang out during your downtime. Good people watching. And- Free Wifi for guests.

    Lovely building. Had coffee there and was kindly given some history by a Tom Waits look-a-like. I believe he worked there. Nice young man, bless his heart. Will surely be going back to sit by the fire when the weather gets cooler, and to try one of the scones that bellman raves about.

    went back to try it again and it is still as bad as it was the first time.   I was willing to give it a who but unfortunately this time the clerks were rude and obnoxious and were too busy talking with one another or checking their e mail.  With so many choices in NY, i would rather stay just about anywhere else.

    This place is so cute and cozy. We just sat in the lobby/lounge area, but loved it. Way less of a "scene" than Ace or Jane hotels, and the music is not so loud you can't hear each other speak, but it wasn't quiet or dead at all - the division of space is very well done and service is a bit on the slow side, but perfectly pleasant. The restaurant looked very cute; I'd come back to try the food.

    We were there about 2 weeks ago. I had a marvellous experience. Everything we needed was immediately attended to. The staff was super friendly & eager to ensure a quality stay. I really liked the bathroom. The shower was nice and featured interesting brass fixtures. The bed was beyond cozy... I slept like a rock.

    For a classic New York Greenwich Village experience, this hotel is perfect.
    Unbeatable at its price, location, and legacy. The history of the building itself is NUMBING when considering the litany of personalities that have been housed at the Marlton (Jack Kerouac, Lenny Bruce, Valerie Solanas, Julie Andrews, etc).
    The recent renovations have done an amazing job capitalizing upon its historical significance as well as making it a lovely outpost in the ever-changing terrain that is "New York Land".
    The rooms are gorgeous, the staff is great, and the restaurant is shaping up to be something amaZing upon its opening.
    Anxious to see more!

    I stayed here on my recent trip to NYC and the food is one of the reasons to endure the tiny rooms. Inventive, delicious, French cooking...and sea urchin. So few places serve uni! Also pheasant and lamb rillettes and rabbit...amazing menu, great staff. Best place to eat is the bar. The restaurant in the back lacks a little ambiance.

    I give this place a good rating, with some reservations. A New York bargain in some regards and a good pick for someone traveling alone. It is a boutique hotel with limited services: no room service, no bellmen, no valet parking.
    On the plus side: It's attractively decorated and the rooms are nice, and the price is right for New York. The room and bathroom are very clean and logical, and the bathroom had a nice vintage feel with a decent sized shower. They had an iron and a small ironing board and minibar with basics in the small closet. The location is superb, right near Washington Square Park, close to public transportation and within walking distance of the Village, Soho, etc. There is a nice, small lobby with 2 sitting rooms, fireplaces, and a homey feeling, a small bar with booths, and an airy room in back where a simple breakfast is served. Check-in is easy and the staff is reasonably attentive. We had no problems with noise or anything. There is a good garage right across the street for your car. Le Pain Quotidian, one of my go-to lunch places, has a spot right next door.
    On the minus side: The room is tiny, just big enough for a queen bed and room to squeeze around it. There is no place whatsoever to put anything down: not a table or desk or console or anything, aside from 2 tiny night stands, that already have lamps etc. You have to stash your luggage as best you can under the bed or in the corners. It could work for one person, but for two it was logistically crazy-making. There also is but one elevator, and the wait can be long, and then you have to hump your luggage through some narrow doors and down a tight hallway to get to your room.
    I would come back here alone, but not with my partner, it's just too tight quarters. I think it's a great value for just one person, but not good for two.

    Marie Antoinette's love hotel !

    The rooms are tiny, mine was a Queen Room and it was just arounf 150 sq ft. But it has a window and half, nice and heavy curtains, a clean black and white and brass bathroom (large shower), there is a well-stocked minibar, and a large closet. Large flat screen TV. Nice and confortable bed. The big black chandelier is just too large and too modern for the room.
    The decor is sophisticated; it does feel a little bit like a love hotel made from a fancy chocolate box, a very feminine atmosphere, like you are having a sleep over at the Petit Trianon. Rooms are quiet. Corridors are cleaned. No room service. Quick check in and check out.

    The ambiance downstairs is different, more masculine, with wood panelled room, a beautiful fireplace with crystal balls, marble and bamboo brass table. The service is surprising. The Barista Lady totally ignored me for 5 minutes while cleaning her space and pilling up the saucers. Then when I asked her for coffees, she looked at me surprised and told me: "I thought you were working there"....nice! They were running out of the home made almond milk at 11.00 am, too bad, next time maybe.

    Anyway, I definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a well-appointed room in the area, at a very affordable rate (for NYC)

    you MUST go here.  to start, it is important to note that The Marlton is still in their "soft opening" phase, at least it was the weekend of 10/27/13 when I stayed.  I believe my first morning there may have been the first morning that breakfast was served... GREAT CHOICE.  It was a basic menu and cheap pricing, the food was really great and definitely exceeded my expectations.

    the rooms are small, but I was highly impressed by what they did with these small spaces.  the decor and overall atmosphere of this hotel is kind of 20's flapper.. kind of steam punk .. kind of ultra chic.  you can tell that the hotelier really took details into consideration.  the fixtures, the craftsmanship, even the outfitting of the staff.  it's really a unique spot... a gem really.

    it's in greenwich village and i would guess less than a block from the west village so everything is right there.  safe, hip neighborhood.  lots of restaurants and things to do in the area.  at $200-ish a night... i think its a BARGAIN for that neighborhood.

    Perfectly good spot to hang with a friend and grab a drink in the lobby. Did not stay here, was just here for the lobby bar.

    Only complaint was service was a little weird, slow and they in your face and then slow again. And quite crowded, with a weirdish crowd. But I think they are still new and figuring it out. Will be better in the winter, since the fireplace is nice but not the best vibe for summer.

    I am a huge fan of this hotel and a regular for my stays in nyc. It's pet friendly and the location is right near Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village. There is a parking lot directly across the street which is fantastic. The decor is fabulous - modern, comfortable with a sophisticated edge and touches. The lobby has a fireplace and is a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee. The bar and restaurant Margaux are amazing. Stay sometime and you will see why!

    Location, location, location! Nice hotel near Washington Square, where we stayed for 3 nights. The lobby has a classy feel to it and check in was fast. Cafe and bar in the hotel. We booked a queen bed and although it may be a bit small, it was clean, comfortable and homey. See pic. You're 10 mins from a Walgreens and the subway station, which means you can be at Central Park or Battery Park in minutes. A plus is being in the Greenwich neighbourhood. Price wise, it's a standard $200 a night. Book online and ignore the poor review below-if it's a busy time of year, you can't expect the hotel to hold your room indefinitely, especially if you don't call the hotel and let them know you're coming late. Bathroom is sweet, glass door shower and nicely decorated. There's a bar fridge stocked with tons of treats but we didn't use. TV in the room is LCD and standard. There's no desk, but it's not a deal breaker. The window view isn't great but you won't even mind. The room is nice and I'd recommend it. This is a gem! Yippee-ki-yay, Marlton!

    The hotel looks nice.  Nice interior design.  Bed has good sheets etc.  Rooms are tiny.  Which is not even a problem because you know booking the hotel. But looking closer it does not hold up.  

    The problem is the service.  Rude staff.  Or staff that is not paying attention.  No room service.  A general lack of attention to detail.  My room would be half cleaned.  Waitress in bar forgetting drinks.  Asking the staff for something and they would forget.

    Not a place to stay if you are working and are used to a certain level of service.

    I would not stay here again or recommend it to anyone.

    I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel recently.

    I cannot say enough about the location. Location, location, location! Right on the corner of 5th ave and 8th, you are in walking distance to some of my favorite parks for Manhattan: the West Village, Meatpacking, Chelsea, Soho, etc.

    The rooms are very, very tiny. Think of the smallest hotel room you've ever stayed in and this is definitely smaller. However, it's really well appointed. Comfortable beds with faux fur throws and crisp white linens are a welcome retreat after a day of walking around the city. Beautiful, albeit teensy bathrooms have nice white tiles and new fixtures. The closet is great and we were able to fit everything inside and push our luggage under the bed. A well-stocked mini bar is hard to resist and a brand new safe was a nice addition as well.

    There is no seating area or desk, however the lobby is the perfect place to meet a friend, do some work or a cozy up next to the fire. I love that there is an Organic Avenue right next door. The hotel serves coffee and pastries in the morning but the restaurant is not open yet.

    We stayed on the 7th floor and the room was quiet, which I really appreciated. I used the stairs a lot, which was nice for some exercise since they do not have a gym.

    Overall this was a great hotel. At times the elevator is slow as there is only 1 for 8 floors, but take the stairs! They don't have tissues in the rooms yet as apparently they ordered some special ones for the hotel but in the meantime it'd be nice if they just put Kleenex in the rooms as its freezing and everyone's nose runs this time of year!

    The staff was overall very helpful, friendly and accommodating!

    "It's all about the fireplace!"

    I usually loathe hotel bars but I really like this one.  It feels grand, stylish,with a mix of transitional and modern.  It's perfect place for a date or to meet someone from out of town who wants more of a "NYC" experience.  I was here on a Saturday night and it was comfortably full, but not too crowded.

    Great location, it's near to subways, Washington Square Park, etc.  And it is one of the few places around here that is actually good for grown-ups (Read: you can be over 30 here and no one will whisper about you)

    What's to dig?
    * the decor
    * the FIREPLACE
    * A place to see and be seen.  Celebrity watch! (I saw Olivia Palermo here)
    * Your chick will love it.
    * I would go for the Whisky drinks.

    What's to jeer?
    *The drinks are very standard, but they aren't made with the best care
    *The waitstaff is a little odd....and slow

    I didn't have the food, so I don't know about that.  I do know however, that I will be making a return visit here.

    I stayed at The Marlton for four nights over Labor Day weekend for the first time and was totally pleased with the experience.

    Though the room was small (I knew it would be so no surprise) it was perfectly appointed. The closet had enough room to store my large suitcase, messenger bag, three pairs of shoes, at least 10 hangers with clothes and folded items.

    The decor [industrial/Edwardian] isn't a new idea in NYC, but it's perfectly done with great attention to detail.

    I find beat up walls, floors and furniture in hotels so prevalent and so depressing, but The Marlton is clean and fresh. I actually saw a man touching up paint in the hallway.

    Amazingly -- the rooms are tiny, stacked one after another down narrow hallways around a central stairwell -- noise from other guests was never a problem and this stretch of 8th St was surprisingly quiet at night. When I was there, it seemed to be a mostly older [like me] crowd which is terrific. It could be a nightmare with a bunch of 20 somethings.

    I ate breakfast only once in the restaurant and wasn't super impressed, but there's a Stumptown across the street with that gorgeous crack ice coffee that comes out of a beer tap and they have the best granola bar I've ever put in my mouth - it was salty and sweet!

    I didn't require much attention, but the people were professional and nice.

    Basically this hotel has many features I wish more expensive, larger-roomed hotels shared. And for the price, I can stay longer/more often. This may be my new go-to hotel in NYC.

    Love love love the decor!  For the tiny space that they had to work with, Sean MacPherson's renovation couldn't be any better.  

    I've lived in NYC, so I'm use to the small space, and I've had my fair share of beautiful hotels with an abundance of space.  But it doesn't catch my breath and charm me like the way the Marlton does.  Besides, who spends all their time in the hotel when you've got Manhattan outside your doorstep! Literally steps away from Washington Square Park, this hotel has prime real estate for the downtown girl (or guy).

    The best part about it - is the incredible price tag with it.  The Queen Room was $175 & $275 during Super Bowl weekend.  Then add on about $100 for taxes/fees.  For the location and a clean stunning room with a hip bar/restaurant downstairs is unbelievable.  

    Manager was accommodating - he was able to get me a late check out at no additional fee considering guests were trickling in for NYFW.

    What not to expect - room service, and to be able to fit more than 2 people in a room.

    You have TONS of amazing restaurants around you - who needs room service?!  Hungover and need food straight to your door?  Go on delivery.com , Seamless, or Grubhub - they allow delivery.  Or go downstairs to Margaux.  

    End with a nightcap at their lounge downstairs.  Cocktails are typical Manhattan prices : $13-$16.

    I'd definitely go back.

    Where it not for the location, around the corner from our daughter's apartment, we would definitely avoid this place, with minuscule rooms, receptionist with an attitude (not all of them, just the one we had to deal with when checking in) and pricey restaurant with so-so food. On the plus side, the bed linen is great and the included breakfast is good value.

    An excellent boutique hotel which has recently undergone a complete renovation. The location is great, the staff are friendly and the room rates (about $200/night plus tax) are reasonable enough for NYC.

    The rooms themselves are small but well decorated and have a retro look without being over the top.

    As other reviewers mentioned, there is no room service but you can order delivery from any of the nearby (amazing) restaurants.

    Fantastically styled new hotel in a great location. Perfect coffee, lovely toiletries, moonshine in the minibar. Plush bed, windows that open. Would def stay again even with a few kinks.

    Cozy lobby fireplace. Bar food was mediocre, dry flavorless sandwiches. Good wine.

    High design/low utility, tiny rooms. Water and space issues in the bathrooms. Nice for a romantic night or two, but not user friendly for a longer term or business stay.

    If I could give zero stars, I would.

    After a long day of travel (delays) we arrived to check in to the hotel around 8 pm ... only to be told "we have your reservation, but we are simply oversold and do not have your room" ... would you like a Full bed room and a $50 discount?  No, I don't want a Full bed and a discount ... first time in my almost 50 years of traveling that I've encountered this issue with a hotel.  

    We found a fabulous room at 60 Soho (formerly 60 Thompson) -- which was much nicer and quieter anyway ... happy accident.  Would highly recommend 60 Soho.  Using the Hotel Tonight app it was about the same price.

    So beware -- at this hotel, you are not guaranteed a room of the type you reserve in advance.  On my list of "never to return ..."

    Perfect location. Perfect lobby. Perfect hotel. Saw Sarah Jessica Parker.  Hows that for a start? The rooms are bright  and airy. Also very very small but we expected that. We only stayed one night and I wish we had stayed longer. It was such a glorious and memorable night. If ever in new york again, which I'm sure will happen, you will for certain find me at this hotel. The service was so great we even ended up hanging out in the lobby for a few hours. There's a huge fire place and they offer organic almond milk lattes. Because why not...Warms my soul just thinking about it. I can't speak more highly of this place. This hotel is comfort and so peaceful which I would assume is hard to come by in New York. So glad we stayed here.

    Fabulous hotel! I have had the pleasure of going to the bar in this hotel twice - wonderful cocktails. It's new, the building used to house dorms for The New School, apparently it's around a year old... the design aesthetic is elegant vintage. great design. no expense spared. you can get a coffee / espresso at the espresso bar in the lobby, sit on an antique couch in front of the fire place,
    grab an old timey cocktail in the bar, or have brunch in the restaurant. amazing selection, friendly staff, and great location. pricing is a bit high but so is everything in nyc.

    I stayed at the Marlton for three nights with my sister. The rooms are tiny for two people but have everything you may need including a safe, hair dyer and lovely bath products. Storage space in the room is limited = we had to stash our suitcases under the bed, and the closet is small. That being said, the room were chicly decorated.

    The prices are reasonable for New York and breakfast is included!! We sat down for breakfast the first day but the service was terrible and so we left and walked a couple doors down to Le Pain Quotidien. The concierge was very helpful recommending and reserving tables at restaurants; however, the rest of the staff were fairly aloof and non-engaging, especially the gentleman seating the lounge area at night.

    The location is perfect for those wanting to explore the West Village, Greenwich Village, SoHo and/or Nolita as you can either walk or take a short taxi to most places. Plus, there are lots of excellent restaurants within walking distance.

    The lounge area is a mega hot spot and great place for tea or cocktails and people watching. It gets very crowded, so go early to secure a spot. The hotel does not offer room service, but you can bring drinks up to your room. The signature cocktails, while delicious, are pre made and fairly weak.

    The elevator is painfully slow. When booking a room I'd recommend you request one away from the door near the elevator.

    Despite the small room and mediocre service, I'd stay here again based on the location, design and lounge.

    I'm local, around the block local, so I never stayed in the hotel so this review is about the lounge, the bar, and the restaurant only. Great atmosphere specially during the cold months, and we all know we have plenty of those here, the bar has great cocktails, the restaurant has good and reliable food, and the stuff is always the nicest no matter if I'm with a hot model or my mom :)
    For now, I'll always go back

    My friend and I stayed here for 1 night couple weekends ago. Not bad, but not the best.

    1. COMFORT
    The room was much smaller than expected (even by NYC standards). I would only recommend staying for 1-2 nights max because there's simply no space for a suitcase or anything larger than a carry-on! There's also no desk, so I wouldn't recommend this hotel for business travelers either. Due to the small space, the bed was positioned literally a foot away from the bathroom, which I absolutely hated. Who wants to sleep facing directly at the bathroom!? Other than that, the comfy bed, great shower pressure, and the easily adjustable room temp were all pluses. I will also say, the lobby was very inviting with a cozy lounge area.

    What I love about adorable boutique hotels are the special touches. Marlton provided complimentary slippers, bathrobes, wi-fi, and breakfast (which we overslept for, womp womp).

    Marlton is within walking distance to restaurants, bakeries, bars, and little shops. Must go: Amélie (French) wine bar across the street for fantastic happy hour and dinner - see my separate review. I also loved walking through Washington Square Park where you'll find children playing, all types of dog breeds frolicking, and locals playing chess - a serene escape from the city. For those of you want to get your hands on the infamous cronut, Dominique Ansel Bakery is less than 15 mins walk away.

    4. SERVICE
    The young girl at the front desk was super sweet but also a super fail. We arrived early for check-in time. Of course, the room was not ready, but she offered to call us when it would be. She never called us. She also forgot to give my friend her credit card back. Lastly, we dropped off our bags early and requested to have them delivered to our room - nope, didn't happen.

    Rating our experience 3 stars, mainly for its location.

    Absolutely THE WORST customer service I've ever experienced. Calling themselves a boutique hotel is laughable; the ineptitude of their management by Eric Jasper is eclipsed only by their petty greed. I will never step foot in a Sean McPherson auberge nor will I ever recommend one based on this hideous experience.  Paying twice as much to stay at The Mercer was worth every penny compared to the maladroitness I've endured by the staff at the Marlton.  They are literally robbing me of $2500 despite the fact I cancelled my reservations with two weeks notice. Thank god for AMEX and my better judgement in switching to The Mercer.

    Nice bar, bit crowded with vacationers who you want to stay in Greenwich Village. Imagine that you've watched "Friends" for 20 years and now you think you're living that experience and you'll get a sense of how excited some of these people seem.

    I met some friends here for drinks after work.
    Being regulars, they all have fond memories of the bar tender. The bar tender was dressed like a hipster Katy Perry with better skills.

    My first drink was a simple gin and tonic but was perfectly sweet and bitter.
    I asked for my second drink to be a gin surprise! It was shaken with spring flavors and included an egg yolk for a frothy top. Delightful but pricey surprise that I would enjoy again.

    We only had drinks, but I will return for the food.

    I kind of am going to write this for the whole Marlton experience.  You don't go to the Marlton Hotel for the room (it is cute but tiny).  You go because they killed it on the use of their public space.  Cozy (I overuse the word, but it is freaking cozy) and a cool scene less the pretention.  The lobby is just activated all the way through from the coffee bar to the back of the restaurant.  

    I did a little staycation here in NYC just to try out the Marlton and it was worth it.  I wouldn't want to stay here on a business trip, but for a weekend it is perfect.  I definitely recommend the Marlton for a drink or coffee in the morning.  The rooms are tiny but for a weekend I would say it also worth it.

    You don't come to the Marlton for the hotel room, but for the overall experience.

    Baby baby!! The bar at The Marlton is top notch bee's knees good and great. This handsome kind gentleman named Mark mixed me and wife up some of the finest drinks that have ever entered my mouth. He was a pleasure to converse with as well!

    The clientele here couldn't possible be better! I met this handsome blonde gentleman with a mustache and nice parter hair. He charmed me with his witticisms and anecdotes!! What a night!!

    NYC I U!!!
