“High Quality, Reasonable Price, Good Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

Since retiring--and therefore no longer on an expense account when staying in New York--my criteria for a New York hotel have been whittled down to "Is there a bathroom in the room?", "Does it cost less than or not much over $200 per night?" and "Can I be reasonably certain I won't encounter roaches or bed bugs?". Based on the reviews, I was pretty sure the Newton would be acceptable. I was not prepared for it to be as good as it was. The room was quite spacious by New York bargain hotel standards. Everything appears to have been fairly recently redone--all the carpets (lobby, halls and room) seemed new, plush and very clean; the lighting includes recessed cans in the room corners and a new central fixture for brighter light, all on dimmers, plus a separate light for each side of the bed; the baths have all new faux granite tile [I would not have known it was faux but for a couple chips in one tile revealing the ceramic underneath], new toilets, sinks and tub/showers, all of which work perfectly, including the drains; and the bedroom includes a flat screen HDTV, microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker with free coffee and tea. The bed was wonderfully firm, but with a soft topping, so really quite comfortable. The air conditioning in the room was provided by a single in-the-window type unit, which was totally adequate (and I was there during a heat wave in July) to keep the room and bathroom cool. The lobby is really well air-conditioned, which is a treat when you first come in from the street on a hot day. The location is great if you want to be on the Upper West Side--the 96th Street Metro Station is right out the door. Right next door is a really great diner (the Manhattan) which is so clean you could eat off the floor. Not bad for lunch or dinner but really outstanding for a full diner-style breakfast. There is also an excellent tapas restaurant right around the corner (Buceo, 201 W 95th). All in all a delightful surprise.

Very friendly service from the staff - and in general some nice, big and functional rooms.
The breakfast / restaurant was a seperate one and not part of the hotel - but many great eating places in the area.

The hotel is in a good location, being situated on Broadway and close to Central Park and Riverside Park. It is a little out of the main action. But this was a good thing. The subway is within 75 metres and is surprisingly easy and cheap to use. It will connect you to wherever you wish to go and it is entertaining in itself.

Many good eateries are within walking distance.

The hotel is clean and the room sizes are reasonable. The cost of the rooms appear reasonable when compared to other hotels.

On the negative side, the airconditioning system consists of the old box in the window type, that was used in Australia 20 years ago. If you are in New York in June, July or August, the airconditioning will disappoint you! According to Charles, on the reception desk, every room at the hotel has the same type of airconditioning. You can of course sleep with the window open provided that New York City traffic noise and smog doesn't both you. I also noticed that flywire screens where not fitted.

Free access to a computor was not available. This is unacceptable in this day and age.

Stayed six nights in a "superior queen" room. Room was nicely appointed and spacious especially for a New York City hotel. Location was right across from the 96th street subway station, just a few blocks from Hudson River Park, and four blocks from Central Park.

The staff was exceptionally nice and accomodating.

A few very minor concerns, the bed was very firm, the elevator was slow, and the hallways were not airconditioned.

Room Tip: This hotel provides many different levels of accomodations. The "superior queen" room inc...

We felt we were in the perfect location to enjoy New York during our recent stay at the Hotel Newton. The location was amazing--a family-oriented neighborhood with many interesting & affordable restaurants, close to Central Park, Riverside Park, and next to a subway station. This was a much better area for us than noisy Midtown. The staff was also very pleasant & the room was immaculate. The elevator is slow, but we usually took the stairs. The only drawback for us was that the window air-conditioning unit made a lot of noise. We could overlook that, and we would stay here again!

Room Tip: We had a "suite" with an extra sitting room, which was nice. The room also had a refrigera...
