New York hotels are pricey compared to less glamourous US locations. Although we are frequent travelers around the world this was our first ever overnight in a Manhattan hotel (we live in nearby New Jersey) but our kids were hosting a special event and the Newton is around the corner from them so, based on TripAdvisor.com, we booked it. One caveat: you must book with a private bath (assuming you want one; otherwise you risk a shared bath which for us is a nonstarter.) We didn't expect much for our $287. (including taxes) but we were pleasantly surprised. The room was nicely updated with two immaculate queensized beds and a lovely bathroom with sufficient towels (*ok, they weren't 5* plush but they were clean and did the job). What more did we need? For anyone looking to be located on the fabulous UpperWestSide, go for the Newton. It's a decent, clean place and definitely not a dump like some of the nearby hotels.
