I stayed at the Larchmont (travelling alone) in 2006 and was quite impressed by what it was for the price (4th night free at the time). I went this month (Nov 2008) with family (baby included!) that is used to staying in nicer hotels but...More
Ok, first the bad: rooms small, shared baths, dated furnishings, short on charm.

We stayed at the Larchmont in September 08 for my Birthday weekend. The price was good and considering most of us who go to the city don't worry about sleeping too much as there is too much to do. However that said, although the room...More
This place is a great value on a (relatively) quiet street (for NYC) in a good neighborhood (Greenwich Village) with a lot of good options within walking distance. The staff are very friendly and helpful. But be aware of the drawbacks before you stay:
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.
