I stayed here while visiting my daughter at Columbia University. The location was perfect and I could easily take a pleasant walk to campus, passing many small shops and bakeries along the way. It was so easy to hop on the subway since there is a large station right in front of the hotel. In fact, it was a bit difficult to locate the hotel at first because there is only a small door on the street. You must enter and walk to the reception area at the end of the hall.
My room was quite compact but had plenty of room for the essentials and a large closet. The bathroom was not spacious but had enough room for one person. Although the hotel does not have its own breakfast, I could go to the Starbucks directly across the street (with free wifi) or to the cafe a couple of doors to the north. To me, a New York hotel is a place to sleep and the Newton serves nicely for this purpose. It was clean, quiet and the staff were nice. The surrounding neighborhood felt reasonably safe, especially during the day. There were a couple of places to get frozen yogurt/snacks within the same block.
