Great spot, directly across from Washington Square park and a short walk to many village locations. Rooms are small but that is expected in the city.

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 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.

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.

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.

long weekend

Even early in the morning there are smiles to be had all over the hotel, but the doorman is really grinning and talking and joking with everyone. You can't help but be happier from seeing him.
