The was our first experience at a Lark Hotel and it was great! Nice rooms, and the breakfast each morning and cookies in the afternoon made it even more special. Happily the four days we stayed at the Attwater were followed by four more days in another Lark Hotel in Nantucket, 76 Main. They both had very hard working and... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night right before our wedding in Newport. It was perfect. The service was impeccable, the rooms were bright, airy and so unique. Breakfast was the most memorable I've ever had at a hotel. Can't wait to stay there again and check out the rest of the Lark properties!

This property is lovely and run by great managers who take pride in it. We had a king room and it was very nice and well-apppointed. The only things I would fault are the small bathroom (tiny sink and narrow shower) and the noise from other rooms (not great soundproofing but it's an old building). But neither would prevent me...

We spent an evening in the Lark Suite. So much space. Beautifully appointed & ever so comfortable. Brad & Meg could not do enough to make us feel welcome & informed and the restaurant recommendation provided a wonderful dining experience at 22 Bowen's right on the docks.
