After staying near Wall Street for our first trip to New York, we definitely wanted to feel much more part of things with our second visit. For this reason we chose Washington Square Hotel, which didn't disappoint in terms of it's location, being close to loads of bars, restaurants and West 4th St subway station for quick and easy access uptown and downtown.
Positive points aside from location was that rooms were spotlessly clean, very comfortable and had access to free wi-fi, which as an overseas traveler is always a major plus. The staff were very warm and welcoming in a very sincere way, without being pushy or in your face, with a genuine interest in your well being and New York experience.
The negatives are minor and would not deter me from staying again, but the hotel looks tired and in need of a face-lift (but not modernising at the expense of its character), bedroom wardrobes are too small to put anything in and the buffet breakfast was average at best and served in a small, oppressive room...that said, buffet breakfast was included in the more than reasonable price so I certainly wouldn't complain about it.
I've already recommended this hotel to a friend and wouldn't hesitate to do so again. Thanks for a great stay.
