I stayed here in July and will happily go back again. An old style new York hotel that is across the road from washington square. The staff were terrific and very helpful. The rooms are small but comfortable and access to the subway is half a block away.

We visit NYC about once a year, and generally stay in mid range hotels in midtown. This year, we decided to try staying in Greenwich Village. This was such a wonderful experience that we plan to do it again next year. The hotel is right off Washington Square Park, close to lots of restaurants and a subway stop. We walked to the Lower East sdie Tenement Museum, the Whitney and the High Line walkway. We enjoyed the historic building and the excellent service. Since this was a birthday celebration, we stayed in a large, king room and it was very comfortable. Our son and daughter-in-law came up for one night and stayed in the least expensive room. It was small but quite comfortable. We especially enjoyed the continental breakfast each morning which is beautifully served in the restaurant. Highly recommended! One note: Guests with mobility issues should ask if there are steps involved in getting to their room. Accessing our son's room involved three steps. Not a problem for us, but it would be for some.

This hotel is quaint and located perfectly next to Washington Square Park. The staff was exceptional! The doorman even gave my friends son a NY hat! They even stored our luggage very professionally until it was time to check in.

Sure, this isn’t a luxury five star hotel, but it is a fabulous comfortable and clean hotel perfectly situated in one of NYCs best neighborhoods. The value can’t be beat, the staff is friendly and the free breakfast is a nice bonus. We stay there frequently and will do so again and again. Love the WSH!

Excellent hotel location - very close to NYU and Washington square park. Clean room & spacious. Easy to get transportation - taxis. Friendly and helpful staff. Good value for money at that location. Continental breakfast so variety not much.
