In 1973, the Earle Hotel which was built in 1902, was purchased by Daniel Paul and his family. They gave the property a thorough restoration and in 1986, renamed it “The Washington Square Hotel.”
In 1961 Bob Dylan lived here for a short while in room 305, the year he arrived in New York and shortly before he got his first big break at Gerde’s Folk City. The place was a flophouse for many artsy types in those days. At one time, Jack Elliott lived in room 312 and Peter LaFarge lived in room 306, and Ernest Hemingway stayed here for a few weeks in 1914, just before he went off to serve in World War

Last I checked this hotel was remodeled and WAY overpriced. I USED TO LOVE TO STAY HERE!
