Although a little out of the way, its only a few minutes walk from this hotel to the centre of town. Its also an easy drive to the historic mansions and, nearby, there are plenty of shops and restaurants. We stayed in the new annex, the Urban Beach House, where the rooms were stylish and well fitted out if a... More

In a town filled with stuffy Victorian B & B's the Attwater was a refreshing discovery. We stayed in the Urban Beach House and thoroughly loved the Nuevo beach decor. The suite was cute and functional, with ultra modern fixtures. It was a bit noisy as sound seemed to echo up the stairwell. Had major problems with wifi - that... More

We had seen the Attwater rooms on the net and knew we would love it- crisp, fresh, modern and playful décor. Our room in the main building was exactly that and was a refreshing change from impersonal hotel rooms and overdone olde worlde places that seem to abound in the area. The Attwater stands alone. It is a little tucked... More

The Attwater is a super cute boutique hotel. The price is perfect and the position of the inn is great for strolling into town. Staff are super friendly, talkative and we received a very warm welcome. The rooms are pretty small but big beds guarantee a great nights sleep. The only thing that stops me giving a five star rating... More

I really can't say enough wonderful things about The Attwater in Newport, RI. The lobby and room were pristine and clean with a youthful and energetic design; the location is conveniently walkable, near downtown Newport and the bustling wharf, and; definitely don't miss the array of breakfast treats from eggs to homemade scones with everything in between!

We stayed at The Attwater over Labor Day weekend. We had a king room in the Urban Beach House. The room was very clean (except for a Poland Springs water bottle behind the bed that didnt belong to us). The bed was on the comfortable side. The floorboards creaked a bit in our room and we most certainly heard noise... More

My husband and I visited Newport, for the first time, last week, to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, and before we left I did a ton of research on places to stay in Newport. I am SO thrilled that I chose the Attwater Inn!! I decided to book a king suite in the newly opened Attwater Beach House which is... More

It was my first trip to Newport, we were able to walk about anywhere we wanted to go even though it was during winter and had just snowed. The breakfast included was delicious and the staff was very attentive. Loved the music they played in the dining room. It was decorated contemporary and fun!

Great open, airy room with the best bed in town. Close proximity to downtown as well as the Tennis Hall of Fame and a short driving distance to the mansions of Newport. The breakfast spread made by the host Brad and Meg was to die for. Free parking for the duration of your stay either on site or the Elks... More

It's nice to hear a guest mention the Tennis Hall of Fame. That attraction is super-close to our hotel and so worth a visit. Thank you for your kind words. We are glad your stay was so enjoyable and we look forward to seeing you again the next time New England beckons. More
