I decided it's fair to leave a review of just my booking experience even prior to my future stay date, which from what I've read, gives me great comfort that I've picked a great place for my future stay! I've been combing the internet trying to decide in which location in the Newport area to stay (considered Middleton) with my... More

I booked my room at Harborside in by using reviews of others who have stayed there. I'm so glad I took the chance. I spent one night there and wished I could have stayed longer. The gentlemen that checked me in was polite and friendly, and later on that evening I met Jane the Inn Manager who from the start... More

Dear SarajaneRose, I am so happy that YOU were happy at the Harborside, and that we were able to provide a cityview rather than waterview room under the circumstances. You'll be happy to hear that the wharf area repairs next door are wrapping up, and it really looks great. Maybe next time you join us you'd like to give waterview... More

If your looking to have a fun Newport experience, I do not recommend this Inn. As a group of young adults, it felt like the staff scrutinized everything we did. We were told several times how important it was for other guests to be kept happy as the hotel typically has an older crowd. While trying to enjoy the Harbor... More

Dear Ann B -- We are glad you agree that the Harborside is a beautiful place in a great location but sorry you didn't have as much fun or freedom as you wished. We are also sorry you viewed our concern as scrutiny. In the interest of telling the whole truth, as you know, you invited a number of your... More

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. Jane, the women at the desk, suggested a hot cup of tea and honey. That did the trick! We rested for about an hour and then were ready to... More

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. Matthew the desk attendant was wonderful and catered to our every need. The room with the loft slept at the 6 of us comfortably with... More

I'll be sure to pass along your kind words to Matthew! As you mentioned, our suites have small outdoor balconies and interior lofts, meaning there is an upper and lower... More

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

The Harborside is indeed a wonderfully convenient and welcoming place right downtown on the waterfront. Meg and I (and the rest of the staff) love where we are and what we do, and... 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.

My wife and I went for a visit to Newport for a few days over the Thanksgiving holiday. Had not stayed at the Harborside Inn since the summer of 1983 when we lost The Cup.
