Birthday Trip

We found the Washington Hotel a very pleasant experience. Staff friendly and helpful. Our room was large, for a city hotel and clean, although the bathroom was a little tired, but adequate. The location meant that all the tourist sites were within easy distance for walking, and the subway was just up the road, which made extended trips possible. We found the Park across the road a great place to sit and people watch and enjoy free music at the same time.

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.

Washington Square Hotel

Hotel location excellent with good access to subway and availability of Washington Square Park to "watch the world go by". Area around hotel generally very quiet with good amenities such as restaurants, local foodstore and other shops. Hotel comfortable and quiet. Continental breakfast adequate. Hotel restaurant excellent for a treat. Doorman exceptionally friendly, helpful and good fun. Helped make the stay very enjoyable.

Ideal location for lower Manhattan

The only slight disappointment was the inclusive breakfast.

Very good hotel in excellent location

In the heart of Greenwich Village, probably the best place to stay in Manhattan. Jazz bars, restaurants, shops, comedy clubs and much more within walking distance. The hotel is nice and very clean, the staff helpful and friendly. Only flaw: temperature in the room is too hot! But maybe this is just personal

Gepflegtes, älteres Hotel mit Flair

Pros: Standort, Bedienung, Sauberkeit.
Cons: Ja, Frühstück: Karten mit Fotos, damit sich Nicht-Kenner besser zurecht finden können. Ein Buffet wäre für Nicht-English-Sprechende noch einfacher.
Location: Greenwich Village (NE Ecke Washington Square Park) ideal gelegen. Ein paar Gehminuten von SOHO, Little Italy, Chinatown, Chelsea und TriBeCa.
Standort in Greenwich Village genial da Nähe Subway, rundum viel los und trotzdem ausserhalb des grossen Trubels. Wir fühlten uns gut aufgehoben, genossen vorbildliche und aufmerksame Bedienung. Die Zimmer sehr ordentlich und gepflegt, reichhaltiges Frühstücksangebot (inklusive gebucht) mit Bedienung (kein Buffet). Feines Abendessen und herrliche "good night drinks" genossen.
