Neighborhoods: Downtown, Greenwich Village
Located in the heart of New York City's Greenwich Village, the Washington Square Hotel is situated on historic Washington Square Park.
This vibrant area is the soul of downtown lower Manhattan, alive with music venues, stylish restaurants, trendy clubs and distinctive shops. The adjacent neighborhoods of Little Italy, Chinatown, the East Village, West Village, Soho, Tribeca, the Meatpacking District and Chelsea are all within easy walking distance. In addition, New York University, Cardozo Law School, Cooper Union and The New School University are just steps away from the hotel's front door.
Evoking Paris of the 1930's, the lobby features an intimate bar where guests can take advantage of complimentary wireless internet access while enjoying afternoon tea, cocktails and light fare.
A little bit of Europe in the Village – We stayed 3 nights at this hotel, expecting worse for the low price we paid ($150 a night in NYC is pretty cheap). Yet, we were impressed by the Euro feel of this hotel, very art deco. The rooms were small but not as small as I expected. They were clean and safe. Downstairs there is nice restaurant (North Square) and a great lounge area for late night cocktails. The best thing about it was the location, smack in the middle of the Village and very convenient to all transit. I recommend it to anyone looking for a decent but not expensive place to stay.
Adequate for short stay only – Rooms are very dated (1970's furnishings and wallpaper, no desk, just a low shelf along one wall), the hallways are dark and narrow, and the hotel offer no frills whatsoever. Moreover, the staff was not very helpful. However, the rooms were clean and the location is super if you like East/West Village, NYU, Soho, etc.
For the money, its OK for a short stay. However, if you like more modern accomodations you can get good discounts in better hotels in other parts of Manhattan and then take the subway to the Village.
Life in a closet! – This hotel was quite a surprise for me. I paid $154 for what I expected to be a near luxury room. What I got was something you would expect on an aging cruise ship. Very narrow halls, a metal cabin looking door, leading into a room about the size of a large closet. There was barely enough room to fit the full size bed. Nothing else in the bedroom, just the bed!!! The bathroom looked like something out of the fifties, with all white ceramic tiles. In summary, the rooms you get at this hotel are probably less then you can expect to pay $19.95 a night for at a roadside motel. My advice, go elsewhere. This hotel has location and nothing else.
a pied a tere in Washington Square – Visiting New York and staying at the Washington Square Hotel reminded me of my stays at cute romantic hotels in Paris or London with good restaurants in the hotel.A family run operation with a lot of women s touches made me feel at home.Bravo
