Inspiring Interiors :: New York's Marlton Hotel

While flipping through this past issue of Travel & Leisure, I stumbled upon a photo of New York City's newly renovated historic Marlton Hotel.  The hotel, first built in 1900, was masterminded by Sean MacPherson, co-owner of New York's Bowery Hotel.  MacPherson was influenced by F. Scott Fitzgerald's postwar Paris, designing the hotel with Rosemary's "small hotel" from "Tender is the Night" in mind. 

I love how the modern light fixtures, surrealist art, and sculptural furniture provide a dynamic contrast against the herringbone wood floors, luxurious textiles, and classic bones of the historic Greenwich Village hotel.  And that penthouse terrace?  Sign me up!

  1. This place looks so hip

  2. Another good place for a romantic getaway in Manhattan is the Soho Hotel, if you've never stayed there.
