I've stayed in Newport many times, and always walked by the Admiral Fitzroy promising myself one day I would stay there, finally did it and I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. The location is great, right in the heart of downtown Newport, everything is in walking distance. We stayed on the third floor, room 14, the room... More

Beautiful Inn, located on Thames so your in the heart of stores and restaurants. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room#5 was very comfortable and clean. Plenty of off street parking. Being an old historical building the walls are thin but I too am a light sleeper so don't let this deter you. Next time I'll bring earplugs. Full... More

We were given a weekend getaway as a gift from our kids. The Admiral Fitzroy Inn was great. The location was perfect for walking to restaurants and night spots. Our room was on the top floor and had a semi private deck. The weather during our March getaway was perfect, so we did get to enjoy the deck. Upon our... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Admiral Fitzroy Inn and had a wonderful time! We purchased a great deal that included our room, a bottle of wine, flowers, and a box of chocolate. Our stay could not have been more perfect! The Inn is in a wonderful location on Thames street-very easy to walk to lots of great restaurants,... More

My husband and I had a quick weekend trip to Newport, RI and stayed at the Admiral Fitzroy Inn. We really enjoyed the stay and thought it was a perfect location. The rooms had a lot of character. We stayed in room 12 which had a large living area divided into two parts, one for the bed and the other... More

Like Edward 1956, we also stayed in the room behind the reception desk in October 2012. We were also surprised as we did not expect a small suite. It was very comfortable, sweet, and quiet. The breakfast provided by the Inn was delicious with many different options and served in a charming dining area, I particularly loved the ladies portrait... More

Sue, thank you for this very nice review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in October. You're the first person to mention the portrait of the lady! Many years ago we had an essay contest asking guests to "tell her story." Maybe we will try that again! We're also glad you mentioned our packages since they are a great... More

We stayed at the Inn this September. The room was very comfortable and clean. We needed a room for 3 so that each person could have their own bed. Our room had a trundle which was very comfortable and worked perfectly for our situation. During the day we were able to use the area as a sitting room. You may... More

We spent one night at the Admiral Fitzroy Inn, one of the two rooms we booked, was pleasantly large, the other average. Both rooms had all the amenities you need for a night. The rooms were clean, but price range was rather high (>USD 400 for 4 persons). What is great about the inn is its location. Vey close to... More

Spent two days at The AFI. More Inn than B&B, the room we had was roomy and clean, serviced without incident. Loved having on site parking. We arrived early and left after checkout and they allowed us to leave our car in the lot. Great spot near the wharfs, museums, dining etc. Breakfast is continental, but be sure and ask... More

This is a lovely property. The location is prime, plus it has off street parking on site. The room was spacious, comfortable, tastefully decorated and welcoming. The bottle of wine, bottled water and chocolates were a nice surprise as was the roof top deck...spectacular views during the day, sunset and evening. Breakfast room is a bit tight but that means...
