The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is close to Washington Square, in the heart of West Village and NYU's campus. It is a quaint hotel with some pluses and minuses. On the plus side, other than location, the bed was comfortable, the rooms are decent tho small. The decor in the lobby is quaint. On the... More

What a jewel! Quiet. Immaculate. Possibly the most comfy hotel bed ever. Furnishings and paintings from the art deco era adorn the rooms and lobby. It makes for an elegant yet relaxing home away from home. A nice continental breakfast is included -- yogurt and fruit, not just pastries -- and strong black coffee. And the restaurant downstairs is convenient.... More

Based on the mixed reviews, and the fact that it was the cheapest hotel in the area, I wasn't expecting much. I knew it would have smallish rooms (it's New York City) and expected it to be antiquated. Sure, the room was on the small side (expected), but the decor and ambiance leaned more toward quaint than antiquated. The window... More

If you are looking for a clean, efficient and friendly hotel in the middle of Greenwich Village, this is the perfect place. The room was on the small side, but had all the amenities - good coffee, gym, robes, free wii-fi and central air. The TV was small, but who needs a big TV when visiting NYC. A great find... More

Its in Greenwich. You feel safe walking around. I walked to ground zero from the hotel. A nice hour walk and you can also walk along the river all the way downtown. Then you come back with line 2 or 3 to 14th street. A lot of nice restaurants around the hotel. The room was clean but the shower grout... More

Just left a much pricier, new Botique hotel ( at 10:30 pm) to come here. We love this location, and eat at the awesome restaurant across the street, we obviously had an issue with the place we were at.. Toured the rooms here and packed up at the other place and came here.. Perfect location, nice rooms, roomy, nicely updated... More

just an excellent experience!. I picked this hotel based on reviews and location and price. Good pick! I brought 2 relatives from Europe for a first time NY visit. Great location for downtown activities, right at the corner of Washington Sq Park, near subway lines, one of the best complimentary breakfast buffets I have had; fresh fruit, good strong coffee,...

I spent the last three days at the Washington Square Hotel. It is a very nice hotel, beautiful old, art deco in style. The room was SMALL. I had the deluxe double. It was really very nice, but oh so small. The smallest I have had in NYC. I didn't have any problems, but I am sure the staff would... More

We were recommended this hotel by one of the "locals", who is a friend of ours. So glad we decided not to stay in the tourist areas (which we didn't enjoy), where we stayed on our first visit to NYC. There is no comparison!!! This is a small hotel with character and history - a number of famous people have... More

Greenwich Village is the best neighborhood in NY in my opinion. The hotel has great staff, clean rooms and comfortable beds. I also appreciated the in room Keurig's, free wifi and adequate breakfast buffet. Quiet street allowed restful sleep!
