Great location for visiting NYU and right next to bustling washing sq park. We were able to walk the neighborhood enjoying the sights and weather. Breakfast was perfect in morning. Front desk service outstanding. Upgraded us when our room wasn’t ready

I’m so glad I was introduced to the WSH. At the NW corner of Washington Square Park—-perfect location for a base in the lower island area. Subway entry & convenience store at other end of block. 15 min walk to Chelsea Market, Chinatown, Union Square—just pick a direction & you’ll hit another cool neighborhood.

I’m so glad I was introduced to the WSH. At the NW corner of Washington Square Park—-perfect location for a base in the lower island area. Subway entry & convenience store at other end of block. 15 min walk to Chelsea Market, Chinatown, Union Square—just pick a direction & you’ll hit another cool neighborhood. My imagination has me comparing WSH to a cool great aunt...sturdy, old school, holds her age well, refined, funny, experienced & loving and wanting to share it all. Translate all that into the facility, the vibe & the awesome staff and you’ll want to check it out. Read less

This historic, family run hotel is a perfect place for friends and family visiting New York University: the campus buildings are close by, and Washington Square Park always seems to have something interesting to watch. The compact, quiet bedrooms have crisp white bedding, toweling robes and slippers: the bathrooms gleam, and have been elegantly re-designed. The style of bedroom decor seems to recall the 1940's and '50s: peachy beige painted walls, black and white framed photos of long gone film stars, polyester drapes in shades of muted plum, and early, blue hued, energy saving bulbs in the bedside lamps A well supplied continental breakfast is included, and can be enjoyed in a quick stop format, with good coffee: or steps away in in their North Square restaurant for a full and varied menu. Have stayed here a few times, as family near by: and discovered that the room rates can fluctuate enormously. Happy to find $139 + tax on a Sunday night in February - pay ahead, no changes allowed. Do suggest booking directly - their website works well . Read less

The staff here are universally friendly and helpful, especially the doorman, who uses wizardry to hail a cab in less than 10 seconds. Our room was very clean, and relatively comfortable. And, the location is perfect: practically right on Washington Square, within walking distance to everything in The Village and not far from subway stops.
