Washington Square Hotel: Little Village Gem

We always love staying here for the three classic reasons: location, location, location. Since the remodel, however, there was one big defect: No light over the bathroom sink! Big oversight! Unfortunately I can't comment further because we were called back to the west coast on the first night of our NY vacation!

Great spot in the Village

We loved our stay here - perfect location for hanging out in Greenwich Village. Room was a little small, but cozy - exactly what we wanted. Loved the ambiance and design of the hotel. Staff was friendly and outgoing.

Great Location; Weak AC

Excellent location very close to park, subways, restaurants. Quaint & clean accommodations. Room had everything I need. Only complaint that AC unit in window did not cool very well. It was OK but I wanted cooler.

Perfect Location, Very Helpful Staff

Across the street from Washington Square Park, this is a great location in the West Village. I stay here about three times a year, and have never had a bad experience. The rooms are small but stylish and clean, and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Avoid the rooms that share a wall with the elevator shaft, which can be noisy. Park views are lovely but cost more. Rooms with windows facing a wall across an alley are a relative bargain. This is a nice place to stay with or without children.

Great Greenwich Village stay

The hotel was very charming in appearance - Staff were AWESOME! beyond helpful! Room was smallish, but that's NYC, I guess. They do have large rooms, but those are more expensive. We enjoyed it and would definitely stay there again.

wonderful and cozy

I've stayed here over the years, sometimes with my family and at other times on business. Hotel is in a wonderful location, just off Washington Square on a quiet street. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the ambiance of the hotel is intimate and charming. I will always stay here if I need to be closer to downtown Manhattan.

Great location in heart of Washington Square

Great location, NYU and Soho area; room was the smallest we have experienced! Very clean, bed very comfortable. TV closed captioning did not work during our first night, staff apologized. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, felt safe.
