An establishment at the very heart of Greenwich Village
The Washington Square Hotel is a reflection of the famous Greenwich Village neighborhood in which it is located. Home to some of the most celebrated New York artists and performers over the years, the area has a distinct bohemian feel to it and the Washington Square Hotel reflects this with an Art Deco feel throughout.

long weekend in NYC with son

Always a pleasure to stay at the Washington Square Hotel. Great location right across the street from the park, pleasant rooms and fantastic staff. Rooms are smallish but comfortable, a good value for New York.

Great, cozy hotel

I've stayed at this hotel twice and will be happy to many more in the future. It's cozy, quiet, and the neighborhood and location are fantastic. The staff is friendly and helpful. The only tiny 'you should know' is: the rooms and bathroom are small, as most NYC older hotels are. That's quite typical - not unusual - but if you can't deal with small rooms, this is not for you. My experience there has been wonderful.

Great Hotel

Above all, great location on beautiful Wash Sq Park, very close to W 4th St subway that gets you all over the city. Good room and bathroom size with exception of closet. Great value. Attentive, friendly, and bright staff.

Perfect base to explore New York

A delightful hotel; the rooms were comfortable, clean and well-appointed. Breakfast was included and was very good, with a large choice of "extras" that could be purchased if required. Staff were helpful and pleasant. There is a subway very close by that will take you the length of Manhattan for less than $3 but it is worth the walk up Fifth Avenue for the full New York experience. Would definitely recommend.

Nice hotel in great location

I stayed in this hotel with a buddy. The room came with 2 Twin beds. Even though the hotel was overall very nice, the room was rather small, but sufficient. The complimentary breakfast was better than expected. The location is great - next to Washington Square Park and very close to a subway station. We had a great time, and overall I'd say the hotel definitely lived up to and partially exceeded its 3 star rating.

Perfect Location

Access to subway lines is excellent. Interesting dining options nearby from frugal to fancy. NYU is also near, which brings its own international community of students and scholars. Hotel staff are warm and helpful. Stayed here twice in less than six months.

Great spot, directly across from Washington Square park and a short walk to many village locations. Rooms are small but that is expected in the city.
