Historical Traveler Reviews Larchmont Hotel New York City
A great deal for single travellers
I spent 3 nights at the Larchmont,on recommendation of friends in the UK.
Having previously stayed at big, impersonal midtown hotels, I loved the feel and ambience of the Larchmont,as a solo traveller.The location is excellent,the doorman very helpful,the bathrooms good if you're ok with a short step outside your room (fluffy robe and slippers included!), and it was clean.The breakfast was minimal, but fine, seeing as Greenwich Vllge's cafes are on the doorstep, and the price is excellent value.A top tip for lone travellers.
I just spent a week here and I generally loved it. Quite small/clean/inexpensive - just what a solo traveller needs. The 'single' rooms seem to vary widely in size, as I stayed in two...one the size of a good dorm room, the other the size of a cramped dorm room. Two bathrooms to a floor, all in working order & clean. Not sure about the smoking policy here...all rooms are equipped with ashtrays & although mine didn't smell, the hallway on one of the floors smelled constantly of smoke from another guest's room.
Very desirable non-tourist neighbourhood, less than 10 minute walk to the Broadway, Lexington, 6th & 7th Av. subway lines, a little further to the 8th Av. There's also a PATH station around the corner for easy access to/from Newark airport.
Excellent Location, Excellent Value
In a city known for expensive hotels, the Larchmont is in my opinion, a hidden jewel in New York. Situated on a tree lined street in the heart of the West Village, the Larchmont is the perfect retreat for the solo traveler when visiting the Big Apple. If you don't mind sharing a bathroom - definitely check out the hotel!
I am so glad a co-worker told me about this place. I found it clean and quiet. The location absolutely rocks! Definitely staying there again.
A very nice place to stay!
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel-quaint, clean, quiet, and felt very friendly. The location was ideal, close to many shops and restaurants, but far enough that you don't feel or hear the traffic and crowds. My room was small, but plenty of space for me. I would definitely stay here again.
A New York Bargain
Excellent location on a quiet street in Greenwich Village between 5th & 6th Avenues. Quaint, immaculate kept building, converted Brownstone. Shared bathrooms were very clean, never a 'wait". Rooms are tiny but well kept, comfortable bed, in-room sink. No cable TV, poor to non-existant reception. Expect to pay around $80.00 a night (twin bed room) excluding weekends. Book in advance, hotel becomes full fast. Near restaurants.
What a great place to stay!
An absolutely first-rate budget hotel providing excellent value for money. Accommodation was clean and comfortable, I never had to queue for the shower, and the breakfasts were delicious. I would make this my first choice of hotel every time.
Nice Value in a Very Nice Location
Stayed here 1/03 for the first time. Quiet residential street in the heart of the West Village. $125 / nite got us a small but very comfortable and immaculate room w/ queen size bed. "BATHROOMS DOWN THE HALL", European style, which was not a problem for us. No bar / restaurant, but there are tons of great ones w/in a 10 minute walk. Complimentary continental breakfast. Staff was attentive but unobtrusive. One visit is never enough, but I'd stay there again, and I liked it better than the Washington Square on Waverly Place.
You get what you pay for
Just got back from a 5-night stay at the Larchmont. If you're looking for a budget hotel downtown, you can't beat the location - within walking distance of just about everything cool and fun in downtown including shopping, dining and nightlife. The street on which it's located is a lovely little residential street between two major avenues. The nearest subway stop is just 4 blocks away. As for the rooms, the first three nights were spent in a small double - cramped, but clean and quiet. The last two nights were spent in a larger double for $10 more - it's worth the extra $10 for the larger room. Shared bathrooms were decent, if small. Nobody seemed to be using the communal kitchens on each floor b/c there was no microwave or dishes and silverware for use. There are full time residents that also live at the hotel, but we were never bothered by them and hopefully they felt the same way about us! Staff was helpful and did their job, but the service was nothing to rave about. Would definitely stay here again, because you get what you pay for.
A friendly village hotel
The staff at the Larchmont Hotel in Greenwich Village helped make my families visit a very pleasant new years holiday, and of course NYC's ever diverse Village surroundings kept everyones interest!

... was morning, even though it was pitch black outside. Breakfast came along about 4am - I didn't have any of the hot dishes. I had fresh fruit, fruit yoghurt, and two rolls with butter and jam. The lights were dimmed after brekkie. Our landing time was to be at 5.25am.
Even though I'd had no sleep all night, I still felt quite excited! Sim and Deb were coming to pick us up. I was sorry they had to get up so early, but they were happy to do it. ...

Realisation kicked in like a swift kick to the guts. I felt sick & dizzy all at once and totally deflated. I had a lot of work to do to get these girls pumped. Get them singing from my songbook. Have them dancing down the streets giddy with happiness. Glowing with anticipation at what the next hour might hold for them in this ...
Breakfast was on the go this morning so we could make it to the Top of the Rock tour we booked yesterday. Awesome, cold with light snow flakes -2degrees at the top without wind chill factor! Spectacular views. Next was Times Square experience - body works exhibition where they have taken and dissected real human bodies and "plasticised" them for display. very interesting to see all the muscles, nerves, arteries, ...
... days so we were lucky to catch em. Plenty of booze got consumed and before we knew it, it was 5am and we were all walking sideways. Eventually got to bed after 6 and absolutely ruined ourselves for the next day.
We still managed to get a fair bit done, got the bus around the city, went to ground zero and saw the memorial which was unreal. It was really amazing to see, very chilling, sent goosebumps through your body. We had a look around Wall St and ...
... which John took a photo of but didn't really come out. Had to put our watches forward 3 hours for NY time and it was a 5 hour flight. Took forever to get our luggage as a belt wasn't working and then the taxi took us on a roundabout way to Paula's, arriving at 8.45.
