Right location, great staff

I booked this hotel due to its proximity to a conference I was attending in the village. It borders Washington Square and all of the nightlife, dining and NYU are only a short block away. Close to public transportation as well. It is a quiet hotel, the staff was exceptionally helpful, friendly and competent. Breakfast was very nice, served to the table and just right. The room was very clean, tiny, but comfortable. The hallway was a bit dingy though well-lit, dirty carpets but upkeep on carpets tracked on by NYC winters simply cannot be kept immaculately clean. I was a woman travelling alone and felt entirely safe and comfortable in this hotel. I would book it again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a basic hotel with friendly staff and a great location.

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.

Great Staff, Great Locations

This was my second time at the Washington Square Hotel in Manhattan. It's downtown location in a vibrant community is awesome. Close to PATH and NYC Subway (A-C-E), on Washington Square, and friendly, accommodating staff. Couldn't have been better.

Overall Excellent Experience

This is by far my best experience at an NYC hotel. The location was excelent. The food was good. The room was very clean. My only complaint was we were on the second floor and were able to hear the street noise at night. Luckily we turned on the window A/C and drowned it out.

Washington Square Hotel

Hotel location excellent with good access to subway and availability of Washington Square Park to "watch the world go by". Area around hotel generally very quiet with good amenities such as restaurants, local foodstore and other shops. Hotel comfortable and quiet. Continental breakfast adequate. Hotel restaurant excellent for a treat. Doorman exceptionally friendly, helpful and good fun. Helped make the stay very enjoyable.
