Great night in a very comfortable & affordable hotel. Stayed in a couple of hotels on this trip and this was by far our favorite. If we are ever return to Newport, we will most certainly stay her again.

We chose the hotel for its rate. We arrived to find the rate good but everything else extra charge, e.g., wifi $10.00/night; parking valet only -$30.00/night; tv in room had to be replaced; checked menu - 1/2 grapefruit $9.00 - c'mon folks - charge a bit more in rate and bundle chgs. Also time to update rooms. Air conditioner off... More

This hotel is priced very fairly for the amenities it offers. The rooms are very nice, with updated features. Ideally, I wish it were closer to the beach but then you would be paying twice as much. It's convenient enough, and a block away from the back bay. I wish the restaurant was open every day. (It closes Sunday and... More

I initially decided to stay at this hotel because I thought it would be closer to the beach, it was not. I also had to pay $30 for parking which I understand there is nowhere else to park and the hotel offers a shuttle which is okay. My problem was that the room smelled like cigarette, and we had to...

When did Fairmont become a low budge hotel? My original impression of this chain put it in the ranks with the Ritz and Four Seasons. My last two Fairmont experiences have erased that forever. This is basically a cheap airport hotel. It has the feel of a Courtyard by Marriott but still sells $12 drinks. They originally put us in... More

This is a wonderful place to be, if you like to be treated like a prince. The bed and the sheet s wrap you, the swimming pool is amazing, the bar lounge is top choice. I would highly recommend the stay to any couple.

We stayed there this past weekend for a girls road trip. We upgraded to an executive suite and it was a bigger room and offered a king bed and queen sofa bed. For a group of 4 women, we definitely needed bigger beds and the space. BEWARE! The queen sofa bed is absolutely not useable. The mattress was so thin... More
