I am only giving the hotel a 3 because the staff were helpful but the hotel itself is more like a bed and breakfast. Small, a bit run down, lots of left, right two steps up, three steps down, through the door to reach the restaurant and the room. Was booked to stayed three nights with breakfast , had my... More

We stayed at this hotel whilst on a long weekend in New York. We had previously stayed up town and decided to go for one of the villages on our second trip and I'm so glad we did. The location of this hotel is excellent if you like jazz bars, good resturants and a more local feel. The hotel itself... More

My husband and I recently "splurged" and stayed overnight in NYC. We usually head back to Long Island, but being our 25th anniversary, we wanted to celebrate. We chose Washington Square Hotel. Great location, cool history, friendly staff. Reasonable rate in a great neighborhood. Great bathroom. So what could go wrong? A jackhammer under our window at 7:45 am? Really?... More

The Washington Square Hotel is in a great location close to excellent dining and multiple subway lines. The staff is very helpful. The rooms were efficient and clean. The main drawback is that the hotel is noisy. Street noise and the guests upstairs made it difficult to get to sleep. The front desk did move me but this was only... More

After getting past the initial snarky clerk when I checked in and my room wasn't ready, the rest of my stay was fine. I guess I had one of the larger rooms, which was great. Our room was nice and large with a lovely bathroom. It was tucked behind the elevator which made me nervous, but it was never a... More

After all these years, still a dump! Shower was lukewarm, never got hot or really even warm. Service personnel never fixed up the room even though the "Service Requested" tag was hanging on the door knob from 11AM onward. And there is no proper chair -- the desk chair is a low-to-the-ground ottoman, or maybe footstool. Forget about doing any... More

Excellent Greenwich Village location at the corner of Washington Square, right by NYU. PATH station for New Jersey almost adjacent, subway nearby. We got a very good price, by NYC standards. Helpful, cheerful staff; clean throughout. Hotel was a favorite with musicians playing local clubs, including jazz stars, Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Bo Diddley. This is an older,... More

Stayed at the Washington Square Hotel on business. The location is excellent if you have business in the NYU or Greenwich Village area. The staff was pleasant and my room was clean. But the rooms are very small. The mini desk area had only a padded ottoman, not a chair. It would have been difficult to have a couple in... More

This was a great place to say however there were a few things that needed to be upgraded. The staff were accommodating. The rooms were noisy and it seemed they had not renovated in a while. The price was good however if you are looking for a place to stay.

Our stay at The Washington Square Hotel was perfect. The hotel has an art deco theme and great location in Greenwich Village. We easily walked to all our destinations during our stay. With NYU just blocks away makes it a great hotel for visiting parents. The staff was wonderful and our room was clean and comfortable. Parking garage one block... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
