With not having been to the Big Apple before, we wanted to make sure that the hotel was going to be O.K. and trawled TRIP ADVISOR 'til The Newton came to our attention.
Well it was a lot more than O.K.
Staff can't do enough to make your stay a good one. Printing maps, finding out opening times etc, etc.
The young lad (Bell hop?) who manned the door and took your luggage to the room had the greatest smile 24/7.
We found out, a little late, that tickets for Broadway shows were obtainable from desk staff at greatly discounted prices, will use on next visit.
Rooms are not huge but comfortable, extremely clean, quiet, having an excellent bathroom, fridge/microwave/flat screen T.V. and excellent Air Con.
We didn't use the next door DINER, but others did and found it superb value with great choice of quality food.
We used the sister CITY DINER about 3 blocks downtown on BROADWAY AVENUE, again could not be faulted.
The subway was within 100yards of the hotel and we bought 7 day tickets for $27 (about £20) unbelievable value and the subway after a couple of trips was easy to use.
Cental park and the site of John Lennon's demise are 20/25 minute walk away.
Don't forget it's not like the UK the price you see, on most products, is not the price you pay, there are taxes added.
The lift was a little slow getting down to reception, but using the stairs on the way down was no great hardship.
We had our own bathroom facilities, as mentioned above, but the shared suite was adjacent to our room and a little more air freshener would have helped in the hot weather, to be honest; only noticed when entering and leaving our room and was only a minor hic-cup.
If our pension lasts we will definitely be returning to The Newton
