Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled in a prime location, the Washington Square Hotel is a favorite among travelers for its easy access to nearby attractions and transit. Guests have called out the hotel's clean and comfortable rooms, though warnings about noise and outdated decor are not uncommon. The historical charm and art deco elements of the hotel add to its appeal, alongside the commendable cleanliness that earns high marks. The service is frequently lauded for being attentive, but the hotel's value receives mixed reviews, with some guests questioning the cost given the dated aspects and limited amenities.

This is an excellent boutique hotel with beautiful historical detail. The room was spacious and very clean. The staff was very friendly. They accommodated our request for a quiet room with a view, and it was very quiet and had a lovely view. We were very satisfied with our stay.

This charming hotel is clean, quiet and conveniently located. I would definitely stay here again. The front desk folks (and the doorman) had lots of good recommendations for places to eat. The rooms are kind of small, but the beds are comfortable and the shower was better than mine at home. Plenty of hot water too.

A very nice hotel with an unbeatable location. The hotel is right at Washington Sq. Park and very quiet. Small rooms (some without a view) but clean and well functioning. OK service too, especially from the door man. We did not try the restaurant or other facilities. Choose this hotel if location and pricing are key; not if you are into luxury or spa adventures. The wonders of Greenwich Village and South Manhattan await you!

I really loved this place especially its great location. Staff friendly, esp the doorman. I had a single room and felt it was fairly spacious (by NY standards) and the sheets/pillows great. I hope people that book here appreciate its cool history and also understand this is an old building and old buildings have pros/cons. In this case - the very small and slow elevator but that wasn't an issue for me. I will def stay again.

The location is first rate. The room is basic but comfortable. The shower/water pressure was wonderful. The restaurant was convenient and reasonably priced for breakfast. The history of the hotel is fascinating. I would recommend this hotel and will come back next time I don't feel like going back to New Jersey after a night out in NYC.

Hyde Park, New York7 contributions2 helpful votes
Excellent hotel, safe neighborhood, not part of a chain, run by people who care. The rooms are recently renovated. Great location is off Washington Square Park. It is very near several subway stations and great for moving around NYC. The rooms are quiet. When you phone a real, live person answers. You do not have to press 1 or 2, then be told to wait by a machine. The doorman helps with luggage. Prices very reasonable.

From the moment I was greeted by the friendly staff, my stay was exceptional. The room was cozy, quiet and clean, the bed was super comfortable and the bathroom had great storage. The location was ideal for everything I wanted to do in the Village and felt very safe. It was easy to access from JFK airport via the subway. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and would recommend to anyone visiting NYC.

Ronnie Jenkins was the best. I am from NY but now love in MN and had never been to the WSH. Our first time there we met Ronnie and he was such gentleman/saint. We have been back many times since. True level of class and hospitality. We will definitely miss him on our next trip back.
