Our room wasn't large, but included a king bed and a perfectly planned bathtub to help smooth the muscles we used in navigating NYC. The location is too smooth too! Easy access to… Read more

Ronnie is the Captain of the hotel and he is a blast. Knowledgeable of all things NYC, friendly, welcoming, humorous, charming—at all times. He takes WSH from great to extraordinary! I will miss him the most.

We needed a Covid break & being about 40 minutes outside NYC we decided a few days in Greenwich Village would be perfect.

We needed a Covid break & being about 40 minutes outside NYC we decided a few days in Greenwich Village would be perfect. Wanted to be close to Washington Sq Park so after looking at reviews & pics for Washington Square Hotel, we decided to book it. Took the King Executive (room 302) & we couldn't have been more happy. Right next to the park with so many restaurants, cafes, BAKERIES & bars. The staff were very eager to please & friendly. Room was excellent & actually much better than the picture led me to believe. Plenty of space & the bathroom was great. Excellent shower in large stall. Will definitely return. Read less
