Beware the perfume!
Posted Feb 16, 2017
I had a petite single room. If not for my "upgrade" to a double bed, I would have had a twin. There is just barely enough room to walk between the bed and the desk, the bed and the dresser. I am not a chemically sensitive person, but the fragrance from the cleaning products they use is OVERWHELMING! Despite keeping my clothes either in my suitcase or hung in the closet, everything I had with me came home smelling of the fragrance. It was so strong, I could taste it! I asked housekeeping and the front desk to not use the products in my room after my first night. Their solution was to not clean the room at all, not make the bed, not empty the trash. They simply skipped my room. The hotel is very clean. My room was on the back side of the building, away from Broadway, and was as quiet as my home in a very residential neighborhood. The walls are extremely thin. My first night, there were people in the adjoining room talking and laughing (at a normal level) until almost 2 am, keeping me awake. That room was empty the next two nights and it was blissfully quiet. Front desk staff were not warm and friendly, but not unfriendly, and they were accommodating.

Thank you for your review of the Hotel Newton and thank you for taking out the time to leave a review about your stay.
I do apologize if you were sensitive to the scent of the cleaning supply in your room.
I am happy to hear the front desk was able to give you a complimentary upgrade in an effort to make you more comfortable.
Thank you again for staying with us and thank you for your review.
