We visited New York pre cruise. Having booked a deluxe room, on entering the room my friend was ready to go back to reception and complain but realised that this was the deluxe room!

We visited New York pre cruise. Having booked a deluxe room, on entering the room my friend was ready to go back to reception and complain but realised that this was the deluxe room! Very small in comparison to other hotels we’ve stayed in over the years, on a positive note it was lovely and clean, the shower room was small, recently renovated and immaculate. The beds were very comfortable, lovely white quality bedding. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. It is quite a way out of the city 2.6miles so it was necessary to use the subway a novel experience, plenty of helpful folks around to help us gain the tickets, the nearest station is only a 3 min walk from the hotel. We ate at the hotel the second night, food was delicious as were the cocktails, approx £100 for 3 courses and a couple of cocktails each. Staff were very friendly and helpful, The hotel is well thought of by the New Yorkers. I would be happy to return to the Washington Square Park hotel. We chose to stay at a peak time so found the hotel expensive in comparison to others we have stayed in, but realise that was due to the time of our visit. Read less

I’ve been staying at WSH since the late 70s. Such a friendly staff at this homey deco style hotel. Clean rooms in a true and historic neighborhood in NYC. I love how it’s so close to the park where you can breathe and a block away from just about all of the subways and connections where you can explore this great city!

We’ve been staying at the Washington Square Hotel in Greenwich Village for a couple years now because of its close proximity to NYU. It’s convenience, friendly staff and complimentary breakfast all add to its appeal. They have a great Happy Hour with $1 priced oysters! I will continue to stay here when I visit my daughter at NYU.

Washington Square hotel is perfect if you are looking for an old fashioned style hotel in the Gramercy Park Area. Direct access via underground and A train to JFK. Friendly reception, right next to the Washington square and places to drink high quality coffee and do yoga. Bathrooms are outdated, but mattresses are new!
