Washington Square Hotel

Dear Imaginary Friends,

If you should find yourself heading to New York City, you should consider a stay at the Washington Square Hotel right in the heart of the Village. Washington Square Park is across the street with its motley assortment of street buskers, chess players and interesting, if weird, people.

The hotel is not big on amenities but has very large bedrooms and very large lovely marble bathrooms. What makes it chic? Bob Dylan, Barbara Streisand, Ernest Hemingway, The Mamas and the Papas, Joan Baez, Dylan Thomas, and many other actors, writers and musicians have called this hotel their home away from home.

The hotel was built in 1902 and retains a lot of its turn- of- the-century charm . There is a touch of Art Nouveau in the colorful glazed tiles used as decor.

Your traveling friend,
