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!

Kev saw the biggest TV he has ever seen. We took some photos, enquired about Broadway shows and decided that the Empire State Building would be one of the first attractions we would visit. Off we went fighting off everyone trying to sell the two foreigners some show or comedy.

I would find out later that construction was being done on a bridge in Lower Manhattan that day and taxis had to use a tunnel to get to the Cruise Port. The tunnel had a toll of 14.00 dollars and of course the taxis did not want to pay this therefore they never came. As we stood in the slow moving lineup, an employee of the ...

I readily admit that I have the attention span of a gnat, but only on a good day. Otherwise it is even worse. Added to this I loathe religious works of art, so this sort of gallery is wasted on me, but the early frescoes from the early 1100s (some of which have ...

Next on the to do list was Central Park so we headed North in our taxi. We found some 'citi' bikes and rode the whole way around Central Park. It is such a beautiful park and that's only from what we saw on bikes. We hoped off to have a pretzel and a hot dog on the grass. There were 100s of people laying around in the grass enjoying the park... I still can't get over the size of it and the fact that high ...
Another part day spent sitting in a different airport and on another plane, this time Buffalo Airport and our JetBlue flight to New York City.
The cabbie who had taken us into Canada on Tuesday arrived to take us back to Buffalo just before 9am. This time we drove across the Rainbow Bridge which gave us a last good view of the falls. The queue for US Immigration was only about 5 minutes at that time of ...
