The latest project from hospitality pundit Sean MacPherson (the man behind gems such as The Jane and the Bowery) is a 'baby grand hotel' located in Greenwich Village. Once home to writers Jack Kerouac and F Scott Fitzgerald, the 107-room lodgings now boast a touch of charming French design, from original herringbone wood floors, to the brass fixtures throughout. 'The Marlton is a labour of love for me, and my hope is that it becomes an integral part of this revitalising street,' says MacPherson. Facilities include a coffee bar in the lobby and the soon-to-open Café Marlton, which will offer a French-inspired menu.
