“Great nights stay...”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

My girlfriend and I live on Long Island and we frequent the city pretty often. We decided to get a hotel room for the night. The location of the hotel is superb. Right in the West Village and walking distance to bars, restaurants, subway, NYU, and Washington Square Park right across the street. We opted to drive into the city that day since we knew we were staying overnight. FYI--DO NOT PAY TO PARK IN THE PARKING GARAGE! I was all set to pay to park when i realized that there was tons of street parking. Theres no parking during the week tho, but on saturdays and sundays theres no charge to park on the street. The hotel was very clean, our room was not noisy at all, and the overall size of the room was very comfortable and enjoyable. They had free WiFi, and a restaurant and bar in the hotel. Price was also very reasonable. We saved money by booking and paying a head of time online.

just back from my second stay there .. it's perfectly located, within a few meters from the metro, between 5/6th avenue, greenwich area, their inclusive continental breakfast is good and gets u started for the day and i love their orange juice (contrary to one review i just read on TA) .. i was in room 807 (comfortable twin beds) this time, the room is smallish, but has a hairdryer, iron, umbrella, safe, tea, coffee facility, shampoo, etc. incl. of continental breakfast .. the staff are friendly, they help when asked, otherwise leave u alone and the room is clean and the beds/pillows comfortable .. on yes and free wi-fi included everywhere in the hotel !!!

the hotel location is quiet (for nyc), but the room walls are very thin, u have to be aware of that .. u will hear the people next door, but in my experience u do in most hotels .. the crack around the door bugged me a bit, it was so large that light came in all night and the opening faces u as u lie in bed .. nyc was cold in jan 2013, but the heating was very powerful and i had to put it down (hard to get a comfortable temperature) ..

this hotel is perfect for my budget and location, location, location !!! i don't go to a hotel for the view in particular, i go for a rest and a clean-up and it does what it says and for nyc the price is acceptable ..

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room on a higher floor

The good: Convenient if you need to be at NYU, with friendly and professional service, a perfectly fine room which was spotlessly clean (and large by New York City standards), and a Continental breakfast included in the room rate.

The bad: So much street noise, mostly from people shouting and carrying on outside well into the wee hours, that although I got up and put my earplugs in, I could still hear it. Even my husband, who normally doesn't notice ANYTHING, remarked that it was too noisy and that he'd been awakened by the racket. Noise from garbage or construction trucks in the morning was also very audible. The windows are woefully deficient in soundproofing qualities.

The conclusion: Expect noise, particularly drunken college students (I assume) outside the hotel, to make it difficult to get a good night's sleep. Buy earplugs if you forget to bring them

Although this was convenient for our needs this trip, I wouldn't return.

This is a boutique-style hotel in The Village, close to NYU and Washington Square Park. The neighborhood is fun and safe. We stayed one night on a Thursday. The temps were below 20 degrees Fahrenheit outside, so there were very few people walking around nearby. The hotel seemed clean, as well as the room, which was small, but adequate for two people with a one-night stay. The continental breakfast consisted of fruit, yogurt, bagels (toaster was nearby), other breakfast breads, cold cereal, coffee, juice, milk. Checking in and out was quick, and the doorman was friendly and helpful. The hotel was close to a music venue we were going to so the location was just perfect.

Arrived Saturday January 19 and had a drink in the Bar. The staff were excellent. Very cheerful and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. We felt very safe and relaxed while in the Hotel. Sunday morning we went down to the restaurant for breakfast which was very good and reasonable. There is a large park directly across the street. We were down for my brother in laws premiere "Brief Reunion". He was the Director of Photography for the film.

Every year I travel to NYC for a week for work. Instead of staying in the dreadful conference hotel in midtown, I chose to stay at Washington Square Hotel because of it's location, charm, and friendly staff.

I just returned from the annual trip and am more impressed with this hotel than ever. The wonderful doorman Ronnie always remembers us and is great about giving everyone helpful advice on where to eat, transportation, etc. The front desk staff couldn't be more helpful or responsive. Their gym was closed for renovation during this visit, but they gave us passes to the NY Sports Club located two blocks away which made for a great outing!

If you are looking for a swanky modern hotel that features all the latest amenties, this isn't for you (try the Hudson). If you are looking for a wonderful location with a neighborhood feel, consider Washington Square. The rooms are a good size compared to most NYC rooms, everything is clean and orderly, and the windows open (which is a real treat in any hotel these days.) Each room has robes, coffee makers, and its own heating and cooling system. Ask for a room with a park view!

We stayed here for one night in early January and thought it was a great little hotel. Very old, but well maintained, and in a great location for Greenwich Village, Soho, Little Italy etc.
The room and bathroom were very small, but ok for a one night stay. We asked for a quiet room, it had no view, but at least we could open the windows to get some fresh air. Complimentary continental breakfast was ordinary, but ok to start the day. We walked everywhere and there was a real community feel in the area, rather than a touristy feel. We had stayed for 7nts in Times Square a few days earlier, which was fantastic, but this gave us another view of New York. Staff were very nice, particularly the doormen. I would stay here again.
