    Every time we stay in Newport we try to get a room at the Harborside Inn. The rooms are huge, updated and immaculate! Breakfast is served in the morning and there's something for everyone. The best part is the location of the hotel, not only is it on the water, but it is in the middle of everything.

    My husband and I recently stayed at the Harborside Inn in Newport RI, What a wonderful overnight stay we had!! My husband had a cold, but we decided to go anyways.

    Dear rmca31 -- I was happy to hear the tea and honey worked its magic! Also happy to hear you'll be joining us again when travels bring you back to Newport. It is truly gratifying when guests become "regulars" and make the Harborside their home on the downtown waterfront. Please don't hesitate to call me directly (401-846-6600) if I can... More

    The hotel is in a perfect Newport location giving you access to the downtown restuarants and bars so there is no need to take a car or cab for a night out on the town.

    We stayed at the Harborside Inn this weekend and was so happy we did. We were in town for a pub crawl and the location of the Harborside is perfect for it (or anything in Newport in my opinion). The location like I said was perfect, right off the main street. The hotel had free parking and a great view... More

    Stayed overnight for a day and a half and it was a delightful little inn--great location and solid room, right on the water. Close to many attractions and centrally located. Overall, a cozy inn with a decidedly New England feel.

    We arrived on a Tuesday and was given a beautiful room. My husband and I were so pleased at how lovely and wonderful everything was. Breakfast was great and so was the view. We will be back in the fall of next year.

    Firstly this is in a great location right of Thames St, and does have free parking. However my overall impression is that it's all just a bit dated. My suite was very nice, but the bathroom, whilst clean, could do with some modernising, and I felt the same about the breakfast room despite it's wonderful views. In fact, the second... More
