Brass human hands jutting out from cream coloured walls add a touch of Surrealism to the 107 small guest rooms at this boutique Greenwich Village hotel. The Marlton is the latest property from hotelier Sean MacPherson of the Bowery Hotel and The Jane, who took inspiration from post-war Paris for the design.
In the hotel's previous incarnation as an SRO that opened in 1900, it was home to Jack Kerouac and Lenny Bruce. Famously Valerie Solanas was staying in room 214 when she shot Andy Warhol.
