The Marlton Hotel

A hotel with roots in New York City literary and pop culture history.

The Marlton Hotel

In one of the rooms at The Marlton Hotel, "On the Road" author Jack Kerouac penned two short novels, and his contemporary, Neal Cassidy, wrote his poetry. Transformed from a hotel to a dorm for The New School until 2010, this venerable structure from 1900 has been reinvented once again, while retaining elegant elements of its original self. The 107 guest rooms in this nine-floor hotel recall their twentieth-century past with details such as crown molding and black-and-white tile bathrooms. Touches of classic French boutique hotel style, including wall lamps and antiquated wooden headboards, give the Queen and Double rooms an air of the nostalgic. There are also two Penthouses with private terraces. The turn-of-the-century sophistication marked by a marble fireplace and wood panels contrasts with furnishings in bold colors. The juxtaposition results in a design that is both soft and subtly chic. The Cafe Marlton serves as restaurant, café and bar.
