Marlton House, or the Hotel Marlton as it was known for most of its existence, is located at 5 West 8th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. It is notable for having housed many famous artistic figures, especially during the peak of the area's bohemian scene. In 1987, The New School leased the building as a dormitory, housing primarily sophomore, junior and senior students enrolled at Parsons The New School for Design, Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts, Mannes College of Music, and the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. In 2012, it was bought and renovated by hotelier Sean MacPherson. The "baby grand hotel" was inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender is The Night.
The Marlton Hotel was built in 1900 and, for much of its existence, served as a single room occupancy (SRO) hotel for mostly transient guests. However, many guests stayed for months or years at a time. Because of its location in the Village's cultural community as well as its relative affordability, the Marlton Hotel became popular amongst struggling actors, poets and artists looking for work in the city.
