We were in the Gertrude Stein room. It is very cozy with a full size bed. We have a king size at home so I was a bit worried but we slept very well. The highlight of the hotel is definitely the library. It has an excellent view of the beach where you can sit on any number of comfortable... More

We used to live in Oregon, and have previously stayed at this wonderfully themed "writers hotel." the décor in the rooms is marvelous. Our recent stay was good, but the hotel is showing signs of aging, with fan switches that don't work, doors that do not lock properly. They really need a regular handyman (the staff confirmed this to me).... More

Looked great on line. We're not overly discriminating when it comes to accommodation, but unless you're a hobo or used to sleeping in a halfway house, stay away from the Sylvia Beach. Arrived with our three children in early July, and the first thing that we noticed when parking outside were the cracked and filthy windows - more reminiscent of... More

Fell in love with it online and was prepared to be delighted! Lobby was disorganized with boxes of produced stacked up and things were messy . Desk staff was not professional. Balcony off lobby was not accessible as it brings a strong breeze into the gift shop and blows away the merchandise. Dinner took 2 hours and 45 min.

I'm glad to have stayed at this hotel for one night. We stayed at the Shakespeare Room which is on the second floor (no lift) and one has to stand really close to the window to see the ocean. The whole feel of the hotel is that of somebody's book loving spinster aunt... Lots of thrift store chatskis associated with... More

I have been coming to the Sylvia Beach for over twenty years and love returning to its charm every time. The updates over the last few years are lovely as well. If you are looking for TV, Internet and room service, this isn't the place, but if you are looking for a charming, sweet, quiet retreat on a wonderful beach,... More

Don't let the "No TV, no WIFI, no phones" stop you from giving the Sylvia Beach a try. Each room here is designed after a famous author. We stayed in the Agatha Christie room, with adirondack chairs facing the ocean. In the five years we have been married, I think this is the only night we have been "unplugged." We... More

My youngest daughter and I spend one April weekend every year at Sylvia Beach Hotel, enjoying the quiet surroundings and inspiring views. The hotel staff is awesome, intent on making the guests' stay the very best. Its not for everyone, since there are no TV's, room phones or Wi-Fi. Every room is styled after a different author, and updated every... More

We first saw this 100 year old hotel on a previous visit to Newport several years ago and took the time then to explore, thinking we might want to stay here sometime in the future. We had a very enjoyable stay here. The rooms are named and decorated for a literary author. We had the Mark Twain room for two... More

We had been here about ten years ago. Looking at some of the lower reviews and comparing dates it looks like there was a low time for this establishment around 2008 - 2010. Now it is once again the best for what it has to offer. The quiet and the ocean view by themselves are enough. When you throw in... More
