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

Here I sit in the deep pocket of the overstuffed chair in the Jane Austen room looking down at the kites on Nye Beach and across the water to the Yaquina Bay lighthouse. Is this room for you? There's no t.v. or closet, no wifi or clock radio. People come to the Sylvia Beach Hotel to read--in their rooms, and... More

We have spent many happy times at the Sylvia Beach Hotel. A planned Christmas Holiday, a Gathering of Friends, Old & New, a spontaneous visit to the Women's Dorm after a car breakdown. I've stayed in many different rooms and all were charming. I love the 2 story Library, the hot spiced wine, the wonderful breakfasts, the fun at dinner... More

My husband and I stayed in the Edgar Allen Poe room for our anniversary. Yeah...we are that kind of creepy. It was wonderful. The place is quiet, lovely and a good place to think. Plus, it is right in the middle of Newport's Nye Beach area - which has grown A LOT in the last ten years. Yes, these married... More

As in the other reviews the themed rooms vary in amenities, ask if you haven't stayed here before. The library is peaceful, has a great view of the beach, and a huge jigsaw puzzle collection. Breakfast is included and is ample. Very relaxing weekend for us, no internet, phone or television. Sat out a stormy, snowy, icy weekend in our... More

My sister and I stayed in the John Steinbeck room at the Sylvia Beach Hotel in Newport and thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. The room designs are so amazingly detailed! We got to visit several of the rooms and each one was a delight! We were very impressed with the breakfast served in the dining room - all part of... More

This is a lovely place to relax. Each room is decorated differently and it's fun to arrive early, walk through the hotel, and peak in each room (they leave the doors open until guests arrive.) The breakfast is hearty and fun to sit with other guests. The dinner is delicious and again, fun to dine with other guests. The upstairs... More

The Sylvia Beach Hotel is the perfect place to decompress and get inspired! We stayed in the classic Agatha Christie room. Our view of the ocean was spectacular. We loved the sunset from our large wrap-around balcony, and were lulled to sleep listening to the ocean. We thoroughly enjoyed the interactive scavenger hunt, which was enhanced by contributions from previous... More
