I admit that I have never stayed here before because I mistakenly presumed that the location (right in the middle of busy, raucous Thames St!) would have made it undesirable. We have always stayed tucked into the corners of Newport for the ambiance and quiet. But I was dead wrong! The Fitzroy is a gem! The inn sports beautifully hand-painted... More

Second time we have stayed at the Admiral Fitzroy. We work it around the lighting of the Christmas tree at Bowans Wharf. Both times we have stayed, we can not say enough about the warmth of the staff, the cleanliness of the rooms and the great breakfast we enjoyed. The weather this year was extremely warm, we were able to... More

Delightful inn right in the middle of it all on Thames Street. Room #19 is special with a private small roof deck with harbor and bridge views. Inn was nicely decorated with hand painted walls and very comfortable bed. Excellent breakfast and friendly innkeepers. Highly recommended for this winter season getaway!

I am from RI originally, and never took had the need to stay in Newport overnight at an inn. So, when we got married, this was the prime location and best available option. The room was nice, breakfast was good, service what you would expect from a great inn. I especially liked the view from the room, and from the... More

Most people are going to head to Newport during the warmer months to truly appreciate this waterfront community but there is much to do after the boats go under wraps. We traveled to see the mansions decorated for the holiday season and it was worth the trip. We stayed at the Fitzroy because we found it on Living Social; our... More

Great place and perfect location. We parked the car on Friday when we arrived and didn't get back in until we left on Sunday. The inn was charming with hand painted murals and nicely decorated for Christmas. The breakfast was a basic cold buffet. Coffee was really good. There were some nice touches, my favorite was a makeup remover wipe... More

Hello! We're so glad you enjoyed your recent stay and the "little things" our inn has to offer. We're especially glad you mentioned the Christmas decorations! It's surely a very festive time to visit! We would just like to mention, in response to your description of our breakfast, that we offer so much more than a typical cold buffet. For... More

Ideal location for visiting Newport Mansions and availability of food choices. Charming house and room. Breakfast was wonderful with freshly baked goods (scones melted in our mouths), fresh fruit salad (hard to believe but it was much better than my SF hometown--various melon types were sweet and fresh in late November, as an example), cereals, bagels, etc. Armed with a...

Hi there! Thank you for your review of the inn, we truly love to hear feedback from guests. We are glad you talked about the breakfast variety since our "continental" spread is often overlooked as one of the perks of staying here at the inn. We do try to offer the freshest and tastiest selection. I'm also glad you mentioned... More

My husband and I visited Newport this past weekend and spent 2 extremely comfortable and relaxing nights at the Admiral Fitzroy Inn. It is centrally located within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. The staff is friendly, hardworking and very courteous. The place is very clean and well-kept, and meticulously appointed to create a very comfortable, relaxed, period atmosphere.... More

Booked 25th anniversary due to photos of lovely rooms. We didn't care what room we got, as they all looked beautiful. Got a room not shown on web. Now we know why! Rundown-decor and furniture needs an update. Sofa and rugs need shampooing badly. Best part of the room was the tile in the shower which was fairly new. Clothes... More

Dianne, I am very sorry that this was an unpleasant stay for you. However, since I have an entirely different view on your dis-satisfied experience, I would like to take the time to clarify a few things for future guests to the inn. First and foremost, upon check-in, you told our front desk staff that the room was “very nice.”... More
