This low-key hotel is an ideal choice for anyone visiting the Upper West Side. It is just steps from the 96th street subway station. There are 3 Starbucks in easy walking distance, along with several diners and bakeries. There is a 24-hour drug store a few steps away. The hotel itself is clean, rooms are small without being claustraphobic, and the staff is pleasant and helpful.

Room Tip: As the only elevator is a bit slow, lower-floor rooms offer the opportunity to walk stairs for quick...

I visit NYC 2-3 times per year and I usually stay here. There are several advantages to staying at this property. It is on the upper west side so being mainly residential it is more quiet than midtown locations. It is also cheaper for the same reason. The hotel is next to the 96th street station which is an express stop. It makes getting around a breeze. The biggest advantage to this location for me again is that it is a residential area so for those of us who bring our vehicle to NYC, parking on the street is usually very doable and will save you a ton over parking in a lot. There are a lot of restaurants and small shops in the area that cater mostly to local people so they aren't touristy. Access to Central Park is excellent as well. Just a few blocks away.

The hotel is generally quiet, the rooms are clean and well equipped however they are very small. The only reason I didn't give full marks to this property is the service which can be pretty spotty.

Having arrived at the Hotel Newton after a long transatlantic flight, I was please to find both friendly desk staff and a clean, well-appointed room. Very comfortable bed, nice bathroom, fridge, coffee maker, microwave and a good tv were all welcome bonuses during my two-night stay.

The location is also great - it's a half a block stumble to the 96th St subway station on the 1/2/3 line, and is a stop for the express 1 train for those wanting to cut out a few minutes on their journey to lower Manhattan. Also a decent location for travelling to the Yankees games as there are a few different combinations of lines/transfers to take. Plenty of restaurants and convenience stores nearby too.

The only thing which stops the hotel getting 5* was the slightly noisy A/C, so when it came to sleeping time the A/C had to go off and the windows open to still have a habitable room.

All in all, highly recommended.

I spent 3 nights at Hotel Newton during my trip to New York in June 2013.
It was very nice hotel with a fridge and microwave which was handy. It was clean and pretty spacious. It also had a small area with a sofa in as well. This area was very handy as we have to kids and they were able to go to sleep while we sat in this area.

The only down-side was our room was right outside two sets of double doors. This did keep us awake, as they kept banging when people were walking through. After the first night, my husband ended up wedging one of the doors open, and this seemed to work.

The hotel reception staff were excellent at providing direcitons for us and booking a taxi for us to travel back to JFK. The Hotel was very near to Central Park and this was handy as well. It was also right beside the subway. The ice-cream shop next door- Tasti D lite was also very nice. The ice-cream was delicious there.

Room Tip: I recommend the room with the two double beds, fridge microwave and small sofa area. We had our own...

I spent 4 nights at the Newton hotel during a long trip in the US (August 2009). I choose it since both the price and the reviews were tempting: never regretted the choice.
Nice position (charming upper west side), clean and good looking rooms.
Maybe not a romantic or glamourous hotel...but if you need a comfortable place to stay in New York, I reccommend the Newton..

Good location of hotel as it is opposite the subway (express stop), so you are only a short trip away from Times Square, Central park etc. Reception is not warm or welcoming.
The room was spacious but old and dark. 2 small windows look over an alleyway probably only a metre wide. Bathroom had been renovated in the past few years but is tiny (and we are not big people!) You nearly have to sit on the toilet to shut the door or stand in the bathtub!
Has a bar fridge and microwave BUT NO KETTLE. You cannot even request a kettle, so no tea making at this hotel. That is a first worldwide for us. They have an ice machine near the lift.
You have to pay $5 a day for WiFi which in this day and age is a cheap shot, but it worked well. The hotel is overpriced for the standard of the rooms. They would possibly raise their approval rating if the linen was replaced. The sheets were so thin you could see through them on the bed. Likewise the towels were see-through. The air-con was noisy and leaked when it rained, (which we reported). We didn't report the plumbing noises which woke us whenever someone nearby flushed a toilet or had a shower....no point, they can't fix old plumbing without a major renovation (and as I said above the bathroom had recently been done.) So we slept with earplugs in which helped.
There was no outside street noise or inter-room noise apart from the plumbing.
This hotel would be ok for an overnight stay, but 2 nights or more is too many.

Room Tip: Choose a lower floor so you don't have to wait ages for the lift (stairs are right beside lift...

Thank you for your review of our property. I was a bit confused by some points and wanted to bring them up in this public forum. You had mentioned that there was no kettle in the room but every room in the Hotel Newton comes equipped with a coffeemaker which is pretty standard here in the States. You can heat water through the coffeemaker. A tea kettle is a bit rare in most hotels. You could also use the microwave for heating of water if needed. We have one ice machine by the lift on the second floor in an enclosed space so that the nice isn't overbearing as many persons do not like to be near ice machines but every hotel needs them. Regarding the towels, we do not carry towels that are see through in any way and never have. We had one comment about towels and their thin quality 5 months ago and completely changed our towel company as we value our guests and want them to be honest with us. I will immediately look into our sheets to see if there is room for improvement on that front. I have also looked into the leaky aircon and see no complaints the entire month of June about this. If there were ANY issue with the aircon, we would have immediately, regardless of the hour, changed it for a brand new one. We value our customer comments, and as I have said before, our customers have given us great tips in the past to make our property better for future guests. However this review is not indicative of the Hotel Newton and actually seems like it is for an entirely different property. I wish you well in your travels and am sorry if your stay with us was not a success.

The Hotel is very conveniently situated near the subway . That's the biggest plus point . We were returned from the Cruise at 11pm but we had no problem as the metro was close by. The rooms are not very big . It has a micro-wave and Fridge. Very clean . The only minus point was that the heating was very high and we could not adjust it despite the directions given ,so we put on the AC to counter the heat. Central Park is very close . There are a lot of eating joints nearby.

Room Tip: Do not take a room with a shared bathroom
