Let me first say that when I visit NYC with the family, we usually stay in the Elysee, Giraffe, or Casablanca.
This time I went to the city on my own as I wanted to see some museums, libraries, and sports stuff that would bore my family. As i wanted to stay in the Village, I decided to give WSH a shot.
It's a great location, right on the park, and a block from the subway. The staff was nice. The room was clean and very very very small. Just right for one person, but iffy for any more. The small window had a nice view of a brick wall. There is a continental breakfast included, but it is very sparse and not of any great quality. However, if you have some coffee, oj, and a bagel, you probably have had a $20 breakfast by NYC standards. :)
If your plans are to be out of the room for a 15 hour day of sight seeing and walking around, this is a good place, largely due to the price and location. It is a not a good place if you plan to spend time in your room. It's just a place to crash at night.
