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.

Hotel is right in the Village and easy walking distance to Soho and Union Square area. Room was spacious enough, bathroom was very spacious for a NY hotel. Staff was pleasant and helpful Continental breakfast a plus.

Great place to stay in the West Village

If you want a hotel in the West Village, this location is the best, right across the street from Washington Square Park. I've stayed here three times (with and without kids), and am very happy with the whole package. The rooms are clean and nice, smallish but a good value for New York.

Trade Show at Javits

Across from Washington Square Park and just blocks from Bleeker street. Cabs were easy to come by each morning. Only 10 minutes to the Javits Center. Nice Continental breakfast each morning. Fruit, yogurt, cereals, bagels, OJ, Coffee, Milk. Simple. What more do you want? Good size room. Clean. Great Staff. Doorman was hilarious. I normally stay near Times Square out of convenience, but from now on, I think I'll be checking into WSH. I found my place in NYC.

NYU Move In

We stayed here for 2 nights in August 2013 when our daughter moved into her residence hall at NYU. The location to campus was ideal, and access to the park was easy. Although we were on the first floor the street noise was relatively minimal for NYC (I was expecting much worse!) The hotel is clean & inviting with an early Hollywood theme which my daughter loved. We also loved the history of the hotel, and learning about the notables who stayed there in the past. We had a twin bed room and were very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was standard but just what we needed, and the hotel staff were friendly and accommodating.
