Washington Square Hotel
Ranked #138 of 469 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 7, 2017 via mobile

Well situated just off Washington Square and reasonably quiet. Good quality bed and decent bathroom well stocked with towels and stuff for bathing. Heating in room efficient and quiet. No noise from adjacent room. Coffee capsule machine in room. Staff and lobby helpful. Feels like a small hotel. Room rate includes free and good wifi and a buffet breakfast room, where the choice is reasonable. There is another room for breakfast with waiter service with much more choice, and is an extra cost. Easy walk to 5th Avenue and Broadway so situation is really good. Strongly recommended

Stayed: January 2017, traveled solo

This hotel is perfect for those who are interested in staying near Washington Square Park and are not picky about room size. The continental breakfast is more than adequate and the location was perfect given that my meetings were mostly in the SoHo area. However, my room was barely big enough for one and while my bed was very comfortable, my male colleague told me that his feet stuck out of the end of his bed.

I would stay here again if the price is right, but I would hesitate to stay here if my husband is with me given the space issue.

What a great find. I have stayed in big chains on past trips to the city. Wanted something different this time. Was a holiday trip for my daughter who had just turned 21. The staff had a bottle of champagne and a card upon arrival and upgraded. All of them were very nice and helpful with recommendations. So nice to have a quiet retreat away from busy days in Midtown. Spent News Years Eve at Comedy Cellar nearby. Reminded me of European small hotels. Would recommend staying here for sure!

Room Tip: Top floor great view of the city

We stayed here for New Year's eve, we didn't stay a long time but it was a nice home based. The staff was extremely nice and the room was very average but comfy. Very old furniture but characteristic. We even found out the breakfast was included ;) The location is perfect, right next to Washington square park which is amazing if you want to stay out of the hustle and bustle of midtown ;)

This was our 3rd trip to NYC, and prior to this, we had chosen chain hotels (Hilton Garden Inn, Fairfield Marriott) due to finding deals on travel websites. For this jaunt, we wanted to stay away from chain hotels and opt for a more local feel. The Washington Square Hotel was the perfect option. If you're looking for a cookie cutter chain hotel experience, the WSH hotel may not suit you. The historic property is 100+ years old and is somewhat dated. However, if you're seeking a property with CHARACTER, HISTORY, and CHARM, you're in for a treat. Due to massive gentrification, NYC is quickly losing the character that has made it such a fascinating city. The WSH is one of the last family owned hotels in the city. It was delightful staying in a hotel with so much character and history. Joan Baez and Bob Dylan are rumored to have lodged in Room 305 in the 1960's when the property was a flophouse (see Baez's song "Diamonds and Rust" written partially about their time in the hotel). Fortunately, the current proprietors have renovated the property. While the paint and carpet are still dated in some rooms, the property is kept EXTREMELY CLEAN considering the age of the building. The quiet stillness at night would make you forget you're in NYC. Yes, the hallways are narrow, but this is characteristic of most hotels in NYC. It always amuses me when tourists complain about the small size of NYC hotel rooms. You're in one of the largest cities in the world, small spaces are expected. In fact, the rooms at the Washington Square Hotel are rather large by NYC standards. It was wonderful to GET AWAY from the bland madness of Times Square Tourism and Mid Town Chaos with a retreat to the WSH in tranquil Greenwich Village. Oh, if those walls could speak, the stories they could tell. For the first 3 days, we stayed in room 810 with a view of the park. Deciding to extend our stay another 4 days, we were assigned room 310, which only had an interior view, but was just fine. We asked for one of the new renovated restrooms, but the staff were unable to accommodate that request. All in all, we had an excellent stay. The room included a safe and coffee maker, and housekeeping did a great job daily. I'm a NYC history fanatic, and I sadly lament that the city is losing so much of its history and character to gentrification. I would rather spend my tourist dollars supporting independently owned properties like the Washington Square Hotel to ensure that class and character continue to exist.
