I have stayed at the Newton several times over the past 12+ years and my feeling is that it is a gem! Located on the upper west side, there is a neighborhood feeling, unlike the chaos of midtown. An added bonus is that the #1 subway runs straight down Broadway, allowing you to reach any destination quickly. I am a woman of a certain age, but take the subway everywhere alone, day or night. The hotel is small, rooms are smallish, but since I'm there only to sleep, on the go constantly, this is not an issue for me. The one time I encountered a problem was an extremely hot August day and the elevator was not working. I was on the sixth floor and they do not have a service elevator (or so they said) so I had to climb up and down the six flights. There are many choices nearby for dining - breakfast, lunch and dinner. Right across the street is a marvelous venue called Symphony Space with wonderful multicultural programs. I would highly recommend it and it is relatively cheap! Autumn is my season of choice in Manhattan, but I do get there two or three times a year (I live in Massachusetts). You cannot beat the Newton for the price and surroundings. Try it!
