I remember bookmarking the chic Greenwich Village hotel, The Marlton, the minute I finished reading about it on The Pursuit of Style this winter, and when spring rolled around and my mother asked me to accompany her on a work trip to New York, I told her that we needn’t look any further than The Marlton. Since then the hotel has been featured on Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot List (along with a few other Map & Menu favorites – most notably, the Salt House Inn) and seems to be the place to stay in the Village. For that matter, it might just be the place to be for locals as well, thanks to Margaux, the hotel’s chic restaurant.
Michael appreciates a thoughtfully designed hotel room as much as I do (and goodness knows he loves a luxurious bathroom), but it was fitting that I had the chance to experience this chic hotel with my mother, the woman (mostly) responsible for the love and appreciation I have for beautiful hotels & inns. We couldn’t get enough of the marble bathroom (and its giant soaking tub!), the brass fixtures, the herringbone floors, or the crown moldings – you can imagine how pleased I was to be able to photograph such a lovely space.
On our way out the door after checking out the morning of our departure, my mother proclaimed that she’ll never stay in another New York hotel again – The Marlton is the only place for her. I have to say, I think she just might be onto something. After all, mothers really do know best, don’t they?
