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!

Do not recommend

Our experience (2 adults, no chidren) was horrible! We have stayed in NYC multiple times, and this was the worst place and experience. The staff did not attend to anyone that walks through the door. No "hello" nothing. In addition, they are rude. The rooms are small, small, small. The beds are hard, hard, hard. We literally were in shock when we got into the room. They would not allow any check in prior to 3 (which is normal) but when we showed back up at 5pm, it still wasn't ready (another 20 min). The "gym" is a small cluttered room with machines that are older than my grandparents. The treadmills don't work, or at least no one could figure out how, with no assistance from staff. There are two elevators, both of which only holds 2 or 3 people depdending on if you have luggage. Overall, this is a boutique hotel, but its a bad boutique. Enter at your own risk.

good choice

This is a European style hotel -- small room tucked into three combined buildings, winding corridors, and loads of charm. North Square restaurant is excellent. The only problem was the room was really warm, and even the a/c did not seem to cool it much -- and this was in March.

Convenient location in Greenwich Village

We went to NYC to look at colleges for one of my kids. The hotel was convenient to NYU, Eugene Lang, Washington Park, shopping, restaurants. However, even with only 2 people, the room was so cramped we had to take turns walking around the bed to get to the bathroom, etc.--even though it was called a ""Deluxe Queen"" room! The radiator heat was toasty but difficult to control -- we had to open a window in Feb.! Service was mediocre, but the complimentary breakfast was nice -- good coffee!

Great location, A bit expensive

I am very pleased with my stay at the hotel. The staff was very friendly, the location is great since I was visiting NYU, but I thought it was expensive. I know hotels are not cheap in New York City and I do not know how much of this can be avoided, but for a graduate student, I found it pretty steep. However, I am very pleased with the stay.
