My wife and I debated for hours on where to stay during our first trip to New York City and we settled on the Washington Square Hotel in Greenwich Village. The thought of staying right in Time Square didn't appeal to us as we like to stay clear of tourist traps for our hotels. This hotel had incredibly friendly and helpful staff, notably Rodney who works as a doorman/concierge/need-anything man in the lobby. He let us know where the good restaurants were, transit information and even his best chicken recipe! As for the room itself, the Deluxe King Room (6th floor) was incredibly clean, spacious (even by NYC standards) and very comfortable. Wall-mounted plasma, ipod/iphone alarm dock and charger, king bed, great vanity, robes, safe and all the usual amenities for $225/night. The price for this level quality is apparently unheard of in NYC. We stayed 3 nights. As for the area, there's a drug store right around the corner on 6th Av, the street it's on (Waverly) is incredibly quiet and really quaint. Too many restaurants in the area to list and you're very close walking distance from Washington Square Park, SOHO, East and West Village for shopping and sightseeing. The area is very safe, subways are one block away and cabs to midtown are under 10 bucks. I will absolutely be staying here again and I recommend anybody staying a few nights in the City to use this awesome little place as a home base.
