Hotel Newton

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Wonderful location. Near transportation. Great eats. Good shopping. Very lively neighborhood.

The reception area was small and smelled of detergent. The elevators didn't work. The room did not have a bathroom. My wife has Crohn's Disease and must have a bathroom in the room, but the staff could not accommodate and was unhelpful. Please remove it from Orbitz.

Older property, but perfect accommodations for myself, my teenage daughter and her friend.

The hotel's location was great for us. The bed was super hard and I like hard beds but this was terrible. The pillows were very uncomfortable and that is why I probably would not return. Our last day the elevator was broken, so we had to go and down 7 flights which is good exercise.

nice place for the money in a less touristy part of town

The hotel room was comfortable and very clean with a remodeled bathroom. Only flaw was that the closet was very shallow and with the ironing board in it, didn't have room to hang anything but two winter coats and 1 sports coat. Good restaurant next door for breakfast. (Did not use, but they provide room service.) Close to public transportation but in New York most places are. Very good value for the price.

The location of the hotel is great. It is close to transportation, central park, the MET and the AMNH. It is also surrounded by a decent number of restaurants and grocery stores. The room is relatively clean but is really small. There is only leg room between the bed and bathroom. The air conditioning is working but we decided not to use it because it gave very bad smell (restroom-like smell) after it was turned on. The staff is professional.

Basic hotel, but nicely located right across from the 96th St. subway station. Lots of restaurants, shops in the neighborhood.

An absolutely great location. Subway right outside the main entrance and tons of restaurants.

Great location by the subway station. Lots of great little coffee shops restaurants and pubs in walking distance very friendly staff

A quick NYC visit and wasn't planning on spending much time in the room. One night stay. Location at 96th St. #1 train was perfect. Room 310, facing away from the street, had zero street noise. We could hear neighbors in adjoining room just moving hangers in the closet, but fortunately they were quiet. Room 310 was our second room. First room, 905, was just to dark, small and claustrophobic for me. It faced air shaft and just felt cramped. Staff was accommodating about change. Design was outdated but clean and comfortable enough. Staff was efficient and professional - neither friendly nor unfriendly. Elevator is old and rickety. Free wi-fi was fast and consistent. Overall it was fine for the price. Good even. Just not exciting, pretty or particularly charming.

Hotel Newton was clean, comfortable, and convenient for my short stay in NYC.

Small and quite hotel. Building is old, but rooms are pretty nice and clean. Book rooms with a Broadway view. There is no parking though

Convenient, older hotel. The mattress was a little tired, but then again so was I!

This hotel was exactly what we needed, small, clean, comfortable place to stay in NY. Staff is very professional and accommodating.

The hotel was a typical New York hotel with it's old charm and small rooms. The room was tiny and the view was non-existent, but it was clean and comfortable. Our room was facing the courtyard so there was no road noise. The hotel was located in a nice neighborhood and it was easy to travel the city with the metro directly across the street.

This hotel was nice & clean. However, I would check to make sure you have a bathroom inside your room because we didn't.. It was in the hallway & we had to share it with other rooms. It was not in the description of the room when I bought it so I had no idea ! We decided not to say anything because we were not going to be there for more than a week but make sure you know what your room will have !

We liked this hotel. It is not a fancy hotel -- it is in an older building and is kind of dinged up and lived-in. We had a superior queen room and I would not recommend booking something less auspicious that that (the hotel has some rooms with shared baths, etc.) but we were happy and comfortable in our room. It was clean, quiet, and had a fridge and microwave and a flat-screen TV. My little boy and I shared the queen bed. The bathroom was small but clean and nice enough. The 96th St. subway station is right across the street and Central Park is within walking distance (as is the Museum of Natural History, if you don't mind a half-hour walk or so). The rates will vary according to season, of course, but you can get a good deal here. I would recommend it to those who are interested in a good budget hotel for NYC.

I stayed at the hotel for one night prior to competing at the Empire Dance Championship in Times Square the next day. I mention this in case other dancers may be looking for a place to stay that will be suitable for getting a good rest before their event. The desk staff were friendly and helpful, the room was quiet and clean, and I enjoyed my stay. The location also felt very safe.

We had a 24 hour intentional layover in NY before we headed to Greece. The hotel was small and old but the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. They allowed us to check in an hour before the usual time and was quick to give us suggestions for places to eat. It is a bit out of the way from popular areas like Times Square, Central Park, and the museums but we enjoyed the walk and there was plenty to see along the way. The room was very small but it was clean and very home-like. A vintage hotel but well cared for. Overall, it was a good experience.

Hello and thank you very much for your email and thank you for staying with us. I do apologize if the scent of the cleaning supplies was not to your liking. We take great pride in keeping the entire hotel very clean and tidy. I do see that the room you reserved was a shared bathroom. We are always happy to upgrade guest whenever we can. Unfortunately the shared bathroom that you chose was the last room that we had available. I do hope that your next trip to New York will be pleasant. Thank you again.
