Washington Square Hotel Review

This low-key hotel in Greenwich Village is popular with visiting New York University parents—the location near Washington Square Park and its magnificent arch (and just down the street from Mario Batali's Babbo restaurant) is just a bonus. It's easy to get anywhere in the city here, since it's just one block from the West 4th Street subway station. Deluxe rooms have a snazzy Hollywood Art Deco style and much more natural light than the rather plain, pastel-colored standard rooms. The intimate Deco Room off the lobby has mosaic floors, elegant mirrors, and a wrought-iron-and-glass brass gate from Paris—guests can sip tea here during the day, and at night they can pull up a stool at the bar. The North Square restaurant downstairs has a jazz brunch and surprisingly sophisticated fare.
