Located next to Washington square, near NYU and close to the West Village where you can find lots of good restaurants and bars.
Small and fair rooms. small elevators and thick walls.
Nice staff and quick service.
Included Breakfast is basic.

In NYC for weekend to visit daughter at NYU. Normally, we stay in Tribeca/Soho (Hilton Garden Inn or Sheraton), but because of cold weather, we didn't want to walk the 15 minutes--which, when the weather is good, is delightful. Because of the time of year, we got a "good" rate, too-$225/night. "Peak" prices can exceed $400/night. As for this property--the only advantage again, is the location. Nothing closer. Right on WSP. 1 minute from dorms and NYU facilities. Beyond that, the hotel is old, no business center, slow elevator, and my floor (3rd) was under construction, as well. Room was OK--clean but small. Thermostat hard to control. Bathroom was tight--and it took a while to get hot water in the sink. Still, the staff was very helpful. Lounge and restaurant on site. Did not eat there, but had pre-dinner cocktails at the bar both nights. Nick is great. Pours a good drink. In the end, if you MUST stay in WSP/Village because of business or NYU--then I guess this is your place. Otherwise--weather permitting--stay in Tribeca/SOHO or even Union Square. More bang for the buck.

Nice hotel, nice continental breakfast, clean and comfortable room.

And this was a first....I didn't realize I had left a makeup bag in the room with a prescription in it.....the hotel called me to tell me I forgot it! I definitely stay there again.

Across from the Washington Park with many historical buildings and plaques, plus the Washington Mews. Great location in a very nice neighborhood. There is also a very good restaurant attached to the hotel--brunch was very good.

Stayed here for a few days & the location was good- close to restaurants, transport & shopping. The Bellman was always happy, helpful & wisecracking - the best asset to the hotel! The rooms are not large nor fancy but they are decent & always clean. Would have been better if there was a bath but otherwise it was a lovely hotel in the heart of greenwich.

This hotel is tucked in a corner street of NYC. It is beautiful inside, very old romantic decorations.
The breakfast was fabulous. We had 4 people in the room and the room was tight but manageable. The shower was awesome. I think there double beds aren't true doubles. If you are very tall 6'0 or more your feet will hang off, this happened to my husband. The location was perfect for visiting NYU. It was pretty quite in the room but could have been more quite.
