Impossible to sleep because of: Plastic under sheet All night trash collection Early morning renovation of room opposite (sand/varnish floor) And did I...

I stayed here on the 2nd of August for 3 nights. The location is great, near Washington Square, with the subway nearby. The receptionist at the hotel was very cordial and quick. The room was clean as was the bathroom. Price/quality for New York standards is good. Breakfast served was fresh everyday with pastries, bagels, fresh fruit, toast, juice and...

We have just spent 6 nights at Washington Square Hotel in New York. From when we arrived the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The place is situated in an ideal location if you want to be out of the hectic parts of NYC. A stones throw away from Washington Square, a beautiful park to be around in Summer. It...

This hotel is located in a wonderful area of NYC. If you want to experience village life, this is definitely the place for you. Do not expect big rooms, in NYC there are not even big apartments for those who live there.. The rooms are definitely small but the hotel offers breakfast, which is not that common in NYC. The...

We stayed at this hotel because it was the closest one to the NYU campus. We also got a reasonable rate with our NYU discount. The check in went very smoothly. The rooms were very small. The bathroom was average with mold in the grout and chips in the bathtub. The room really needed to have the walls painted. The...

While our apartment was undergoing renovation, we moved into the Washington Square Hotel for four nights. Every aspect of our stay at the intimate, Art Deco hotel was excellent. From the minute we saw the romantic lampposts on either side of the stairway that leads to its entrance, we knew this landmark hotel would be indicative of NYC rather than...

We had a fabulous experience at the Washington Square Hotel. We had a very large room (executive king) that had everything we needed. The bathroom was large, with an enormous shower. The room felt newly decorated. We were on the 7th floor, so heard very little from the street and nothing from other rooms. The staff was uniformly helpful, especially...

Great location, nicely kept rooms and attentive and friendly staff! When I reported to the front desk that the bathtub drain was very slow, they were apologetic and had it fixed within an hour. The room was on the small side but still quite comfortable, clean, and well appointed. We could hear street music from outside our windows, but I...

Located at the heart of Greenwich Village the Washington Square Hotel is no more than 5 min walk form the flourishing night life streets and restaurants. Spent 2 nights here, the hotel staff was very helpful. Continental breakfast needs a little more though. Room was quite small, but well-equipped and comfortable. Free wi-fi available in the room. A plenty of...

I spent five days in NYC recently and made a good choice when selecting the Washington Square Hotel! It is perfectly situated half a block from Washington Square, and less than a block to the subway. The rooms are not large but are well appointed with European-style beds (double means two twins, squished together) and a VERY large bathroom with...

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
