I have been staying at the Hotel Newton with a high school group for several years and have found the staff (especially Emilio Morales--the reservations director) to be accommodating and professional and the rooms and buildings to be spotless and comfortable. The hotel is located less than a block from the 96th St. subway station, which is served by the 1, 2, and 3 lines. It is so easy to hop on a train and head down to Times Square or uptown! As other reviewers have mentioned, the Express and Local trains stop at the 96th St. station--very convenient when they are running only Express trains late at night! The station was renovated a few years ago, an added bonus. There is a diner and a frozen-yogurt shop right next to the hotel, as well as a Starbucks across the street and a Duane Read pharmacy next door--all of your needs taken care of right there! A major plus of the hotel is how quiet it is--because it is away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square, it has much more of a neighborhood feel. I always sleep well there (the comfortable beds help too)! I would recommend this hotel for group travel (they were so organized in dealing with our group of 21 student journalists attending the Columbia Scholastic Press Association convention), personal or business travel. I'm definitely going to stay at the Hotel Newton when I get a chance to return to New York for pleasure!
