The Marlton decor is French-inspired, yet refined. The public spaces and guestrooms are relaxed, like a monied apartment in a city. Located in Greenwich Village, its storied bohemian past includes an array of famous residents like Jack Kerouac, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Julie Andrews, and Maggie Smith. The hotel has a homey feel that blends into its environment without having to announce itself. A wood-burning fireplace adds to the feel of a place to hangout for conversation among friends.
