Great Hotel

Above all, great location on beautiful Wash Sq Park, very close to W 4th St subway that gets you all over the city. Good room and bathroom size with exception of closet. Great value. Attentive, friendly, and bright staff.

Perfect Location

Access to subway lines is excellent. Interesting dining options nearby from frugal to fancy. NYU is also near, which brings its own international community of students and scholars. Hotel staff are warm and helpful. Stayed here twice in less than six months.

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.

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.

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.

Will definitely go back

Great location that is near everything. Safe. Hotel is older, but has character. Rooms are small, but clean and worked for me since I was barely there except for sleeping. Mattress could be replaced and wasn't very comfortable. Customer Service is excellent. Continental breakfast is very basic and good for grabbing and going. Park across the street is absolutely gorgeous and a great place to relax.

Convenient, if you're visiting NYU.

The room was fine, though the A/C is a window unit, so if you have a room on/near street level, there is nothing in the way of sound proofing. The walls between rooms are also quite thin. In terms of location, it couldn't have been better for me. It's directly adjacent to NYU, so if you are visiting the university and are not accustomed to large cities, that can be a big plus. The staff was very courteous and helpful. I asked a number of questions and made a few simple requests. All were met cheerfully. The continental breakfast was pretty standard stuff: bagels, fruit, and coffee. One simple thing they could do to improve: provide actual desk chairs, not ottomans or high school seats.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a nice little Indian food place on the same block as the hotel. You can order online and pick up a great meal in less than 20 minutes.
