Washington Square Hotel is maybe not the most up to date hotel in the city, but it is small enough to feel cozy, it has really helpful staff, nice bar, good breakfast and good pricing. Rooms are not very large, and not all of them have great view, but they are all very clean and comfortable. Greatest value of this... More

New York has that most amazing of properties, which is to do with the fact that, no matter when you go, and no matter how many new beds in town may have been added thanks to new hotels being built etc., it is always an expensive place to stay, particularly if you want to stay outside of touristy Times Square....

My niece and I were in NYC so she could tour NYU. It was the perfect location for visiting the campus and getting a feel for the surrounding neighborhood. There was a blue and orange line subway within a 2 minute walk that made getting to other parts of the city a snap and we felt very comfortable walking back... More

Spent 4th of July weekend at this hotel and it far exceeded my expectations. Could be because we were upgraded for our 30th anniversary which was lovely and unexpected.

Bordering the Park as it does helps give the hotel an ambience of quaint yet refined. The interior was warm and the front desk staff always friendly.

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.
