My late husband and I have stayed in the WS Hotel on and off for over 20 years. It is always a pleasure, from being greeted by Ronny in the lobby, to the helpful desk staff, to the cleaning people. It speaks well for the management that there is a low turn over with the staff. The rooms are super clean, as is the lobby, and it is extremely… Read more
My late husband and I have stayed in the WS Hotel on and off for over 20 years. It is always a pleasure, from being greeted by Ronny in the lobby, to the helpful desk staff, to the cleaning people. It speaks well for the management that there is a low turn over with the staff. The rooms are super clean, as is the lobby, and it is extremely safe, as is the Greenwich Village neighborhood (I was born there, so I understand the street carryings on.) Even during Covid, there is lots of good walks to take and historic buildings to see. Washington Square Park is across the street from the hotel. Always sights to see there. I would not stay anywhere else, it is absolutely (especially since my husband passed) my home away from home. North Square, the hotel's restaurant, has excellent food and a good wine list. Read less

The perfect location for an event we attended in Washington Square Park! Our room overlooked the park and simply crossing the street got us to our event! The room was clean and delightful! The staff very friendly and helpful! Our overall experience was easy, fun, safe, and enjoyable! Thank you!

The historic feel of this hotel and location are big pluses. The room was clean, updated and the bathroom had beautiful classic tile that appeared to be very well kept yet older. It was quiet and the staff was nice. Breakfast was included, but we didn't take advantage of it. We were here in late January able to walk many places and take the… Read more

It was quiet and the staff was nice. Breakfast was included, but we didn't take advantage of it. We were here in late January able to walk many places and take the subway into midtown to catch a Broadway show. My husband is vegan and there were many restaurant options nearby. I'd definitely stay here again Read less

My son and I spent a quick night in the city and the WSH was a perfect spot for our visit. It was clean, convenient and comfortable. The bathroom was brand new, the linens and towels clean and plush, and the 4 layers of window coverings kept out both noise and light extremely well. The staff was SUPER friendly and helpful. Ronnie / Ronny?… Read more

I have to say Charles at the front desk made my stay an incredible time. He put effort and care into the finer details that made me feel welcomed. I needed a last minute booking and it was my last night in NYC, I was leaving to Tokyo in the morning. Charles made everything perfect and I won't ever forget it. Thank you WS Hotel and thank you… Read more
