We stayed here for my birthday weekend. Though small, the rooms were well decorated and clean. It was within walking distance of everything we needed and the staff was helpful in sharing places to visit, restaurants to try, etc. We will definitely stay here again.

This review is long overdue but I needed to take the time to recognize one employee at The Attwater. My fiancé and I checked in really late one night in May for a wedding. We were both starving but didn't want to venture out to find food and asked the girl at the counter, Leah, checking us in if she... More

We spent a weekend at The Attwater with our 5 month (our first family vacation) and it went seamlessly. The suite set-up allowed us to put our baby in a second room and the staff was extremely accommodating and helpful. The breakfast every morning was delicious and healthy!

The staff at The Attwater knows how to deliver service. This is a stylish, small boutique hotel with a bit of an edgy vibe just a short walk from the heart of all the action in Newport. There is sufficient parking along the street and between the two buildings that make up this hotel. We were greeted promptly - with... More

I was in Newport for work and literally stumbled upon this gem while searching on-line for a place to stay. The Attwater is a beautifully maintained boutique B&B, in stark contrast to the somewhat more staid & traditional B&Bs and other hotels in Newport. I stayed in a King Junior Suite, in the Urban Beach House (located directly next to... More

Stayed for weekend to attend the Newport Folk Festival. Beautifully decorated hotel, location very convenient to town and water taxis to Fort Adams. Breakfast is to die for, innovative food, hands down best breakfast ever. The staff was friendly and informative. Free parking---and walked everywhere the entire weekend.

Thanks for letting us know about your great stay during your visit to town for the Newport Folk Festival. We do offer a perfect location for that experience - and a nice respite after a day filled with navigating the masses at the Festival! Thrilled to hear how much you loved the breakfasts, we think they really offer a different... More

We stayed three nights at The Attwater, during Newport Folk Fest weekend. It was by far the best place we've stayed in Newport. Quiet, clean, great attention to every detail... A very cool and relaxed place to stay. The breakfast is really good. Location is perfect and a close walk to our favorite Empire Coffee. We can't wait to return... More

I don't typically write reviews, but the Attwater has a lot of potential, so I am hoping this provides some constructive feedback, or helps future guests with expectations. We reserved a room at the Attwater for our first getaway with our three month old. Their website states they accept well behaved children of all ages, but don't provide cribs or... More

We're so happy you enjoyed The Attwater's location and service. Yes, we are able to accept extra guests (anything over 2 people) only in our suites. We are an intimately-sized hotel (we actually only have 17 rooms, not 35) and only the size of our suites is sufficient enough to accommodate extra people, and we don't want guests to feel... More

The overall experience was good, with a good ambiance and allowed for a good quality of sleep (were were on the top floor in the main building). Breakfast was a little disappointing in terms of what was on offer, but also the excessive temperature in the room it was served meant you wanted to get in and out as quickly... More
