I'm a frequent traveler, and I rarely stay at the same hotel twice. I make an exception for the Washington Square Hotel.

I'm a frequent traveler, and I rarely stay at the same hotel twice. I make an exception for the Washington Square Hotel. It is the best value in NYC (especially for family trips or girls trips - they have several double-room options). The location is excellent - very charming West Village neighborhood close to shops, bars, restaurants, and the subway. The rooms are not ultra-luxurious, but they are clean, the beds are comfortable, and they have newly upgraded marble bathrooms. And, the hotel serves a complimentary continental breakfast. We always receive a warm welcome by the doorman and the front desk staff. Couldn't be happier with this hotel. Read less

On the Northwest Corner of Washington Square Park, this hotel is a perfect location for seeing the best of downtown Manhattan and avoiding mid-town congestion and through the roof hotel prices. The rooms tend toward being small but well maintained and the hotel remains an elegant memory of old Greenwich Village when it was frequented by movie stars and famous rock bands. The North Star Restaurant in the hotel has good food and the cocktail lounge is reminiscent of classy '50s night clubs. I love the place. Read less

We spent six nights at this hotel and loved it. The location is perfect and the hotel is an old, beautiful Art Deco hotel. Ronnie, the Concierge, was a wonderful source of information and was always friendly and smiling. We would choose this hotel again.

Very happy with our hotel. Location is great, very close to Washington Square Park and subway station. Decor is very appealing, hotel room was very clean with a nice sized bathroom. Good shower with good water pressure. Temp controls are perfect. Price was very reasonable for New York. Would definitely stay here again.
