Charming and Convenient!

Pros: I liked the history of this hotel and its Greenwich Village charm.
Cons: The hallways are very narrow--almost claustrophobic--but it is architecturally interesting.
Location: So many great restaurants and shops near Washington Square. We were on a college visit to NYU and New School, but we also caught a comedy show.
This hotel is so conveniently located right on the corner of Washington Square. We drove into the city and were able to easily pull up in front of the hotel, drop our bags, and pull around the corner to the closest parking garage, which also is right on Washington Square. The food at the hotel's restaurant was fantastic! The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Very accommodating; quaint, cozy and served well.

Pros: Quaint, unpretentious, fabulous location. Very warm staff.
Cons: All was well.
Location: Washington Square Park; the Village, Soho; shops, great restaurants, transportation. PEOPLE WATCHING!!!
Enjoyed our stay in New York; perfect location by Washington Square Park. The staff was very friendly and available. The rooms were small but comfortable. The continental breakfast offered, was sufficient for our needs; nothing fancy, but satisfying. The hotel staff reflected the New York energy!
