After a long trip from Australia, it was wonderful to have such a warm greeting when we checked in. Thank you!! We were lucky enough to stay in the Newton for 10 days in a junior suite which was roomy, comfortable and clean( These things for me and my family are important when travelling)As this was our second stay in this hotel, you would think that there would be some glitches. Err no. Everyday our room was cleaned by wonderful, professional staff, the desk staff (Landry, Jan and co) were happy and talkative-not just to us i noticed but to all and the doorman was always polite and helpful.
Yes, Mr Morales, you have exceptional, hard working staff and they have our praise and thankyous.
As for the hotel itself, it is tucked far enough away from the touristy trappings of Times Square et al, yet close enough to the subway and Downtown. The local nieghbourhood is full of free wifi via hotspots and Starbucks (if you dont want to pay at the hotel), local street vendors for fresh fruit, Europan( a deli/diner across the road), ice cream shop, pet shop and movie theatre (think rainy day)etc that you feel a part of the Upper west side community. We walked easily to Central Park where we did the things we missed out last time (Bethesda fountain, John Lennon/Imagine and came upon a great giant bubble maker man).Getting around is easy with the convenience of the 96th st subway, which took us safely to our destinations. I have an 11 year old who never felt scared travelling beyond 9 pm on the subway with us as security seems paramount in this amazing city
But back to the Newton- if you want to be in the mix of things, with flash as movie star up to the minute appointments-then choose elsewhere. if you would like to stay away from tourist crowds, where you can really "feel' the genuine hospitality of staff, where time is self paced(you don't care if the elevator is "too slow") you appreciate clean rooms and great beds then this, my friend IS IT!!
