I booked this hotel on a whim through Expedia mainly because it was on sale and the 2 and 3 express lines were right outside the door. I've stayed in New York before and UWS is probably the best place to stay. Right on Broadway with many outlets outside open until late!
There was a problem with the booking, or rather miscommunication between myself and Expedia (before we arrived)which Emilio was quick to help attempt to resolve via email.
Every member of staff I spoke to was very friendly and helpful and really made us feel welcome.
The room we were allocated was a Queen deluxe with private bathrooms. (for four of us) in room 404. We were advised this room was recently renovated. We expected it to be quite small, but it surprised us. The size was big for NYC. It was definitely noticeable that the room was recently renovated too!
Linen and towels were changed daily and the beds made too. The room was spotless every day!
The lift is a bit slow, as mentioned in other reviews, but the stairs weren't a problem and I didn't really see that as an issue.
The A/C was also a little loud, but didn't warrant any complaints to the desk, after a days sight seeing the noise was the least of our worries.
We had a private bathroom which was also kept spotless by the maids, with toiletries replenished daily.
The only 'problem' found was the $4.95 charge for Wi-Fi. However this wasn't a surprise and it was clearly noted on their website so we already were aware of this beforehand.
Overall it is an excellent location to stay in New York, with excellent staff and service. I would definitely stay at the Hotel Newton again without even hesitating.
