Accommodations were great. Breakfast was unique and delicious. And cookies at the end of the day were a nice treat. The only two items that could be improved were making sure towels are not frayed and the bed was too soft.

We spent two nights here for New Years Eve and New Years Day. The rooms are beautiful, and each one is decorated differently. Every room also had a mini refrigerator and a Keurig along with plenty of complimentary bottles of water, which was a nice touch. The best thing about the room was the bed! Sooooo cozy! The softest pillows... More

The Attwater is an adorable modern chic B&B on the edge of downtown Newport. It's quite walkable to all the major sites and convenient to the Bellevue mansions. The king suite we stayed in was in the main building and had a separate living room with a gas fireplace. The bathroom was on the smaller side with a traditional tub,... More

The difference between a good and great stay, the execution. The Attwater was a very attractive hotel with very good rooms. But the level of service from the fresh baked cookies, to the free bottled water in the room, to the complimentary iPads is what set it apart. Very conveniently located. It was a quick walk to the downtown area... More

Booked a room for my sister's bachelorette party. The two of us LOVED the hotel. It was in walking distance to all the hot spots (shopping, mansions, cliff walk). The hotel was quiet, with a great ambiance. There were also a lot of spots to chill with a glass of wine (outside of the room). The staff was laid back,... More

After searching for the perfect little Inn...I called the Attwater and spoke to one of the managers...Billy...he was very friendly, honest and accomodating...We chose the queen room which was on the second floor. There is no elevator which was not a problem for us.The room was clean and adequate for a one night stay...the room was small but adequate with... More

We recently visited Newport for the first time and stayed at The Atwater Hotel. We stayed in the Lark Suite on the first level and were very pleased with the accommodation. The suite was quite large and very comfortable with a sitting area, a mini refrigerator, an oversized bathroom and a large, comfortable bed room. The staff at the hotel... More

I almost don’t want to write this review because I want to keep this place a secret – stunning hotel (that’s NOT a Victorian B and B nor madly overpriced) , modern, fab service and hands down the best breakfast I have had all trip. The two managers are both former chefs from NY so it was like breakfast tapas... More

The hotel I was staying in could not extend my stay without moving me to another room (and I already was not happy with my stay there). So I decided to use Trip Advisor and find another hotel - and that's how I found the Attwater. It is well-located right off Bellevue and across from the Newport Museum of Art,... More

Great boutique hotel with easy access to the Cliff Walk and town. The rooms are beautifully decorated with trendy fabrics and furniture. The breakfasts were delicious and a treat each morning. We would definitely stay here again.
