We visit Newport often and have stayed at many fine inns and hotels but the Attwater was quite a pleasant surprise. The hotel was tucked away but close to all that Newport has to offer. The service was simply a joy. Brad and Meghan made us feel quite at home. We booked a King Suite and it was spacious and... More

Though off the beaten path, this cute boutique b&b/hotel has everything you could ask for: attentive service, good location to main attractions without the hubbub (. 5 mile walk to Thames), and great amenities (apple tv's and rentable iPad to boot) and room layout. Love the modern look built into the quirky old school Newport mansion layout. Perfect stay for... More

I've stayed at a few places in Newport and by far, this is the best. The Attwater is a small property and borders more on a very big B&B than a hotel but it ticks all boxes. Incredibly central, one street back from Bellevue Avenue (Mansion Row), sleek, incredibly stylish interiors, clean and fantastic service. Great breakfast included in the... More

Immaculate, charming, contemporary small hotel. Staff was unobstrusive and always helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were amazing -- carefully and skillfully prepared and delicious. Would love to return to this relaxing, comfy and well-located hotel!

Thank you for your recommendation. We think think "immaculate, charming, contemporary hotel" describes us to a "T." It means a lot that you found our staff both helpful and unobtrusive -- that is what we strive for -- and that you loved our breakfast, decor and location. Please come back a stay at our boutique Newport hotel again soon! More

This is a small. Contemporary hotel in downtown location. Toons are clean comfortable and very tastefully decorated. However what's special is the staff. Breakfast is delicious different and healthy. Very helpfully. Coffee and tea always available. Elena was especially accommodating to us. We'd love to return

Stayed here earlier this week and thought it was a lovely place. Normally stay in large chain hotels, so was relying on the other reviews to be accurate as this is anything but a large chain hotel. On arrival it looks like a residential home in a very quiet street just off the main road in Newport. However, as soon... More

We were scheduled to come to the Attwater on our honeymoon but a pet medical emergency happened (it had a happy ending), and Shawn and Megan worked with us so that we could come the following week, and then gave us an upgrade to a King room. Shawn gave us a very warm welcome and we felt cared for and... More

We love to hear when folks hate to leave! We also take it as a great compliment when a hospitality person decides to imitate something we do. We're so glad you enjoyed the comfortable bed and the service of Megan and Shawn. Please come visit our Newport RI hotel again the next time you can get away from your inn... More

Fantastic! I have stayed at other Lark properties in the past and they are all great but the Atwater is my favorite so far. I loved that there is a sitting area on each floor. The rooms were spotless with every amentity needed as usual. Breakfast was delicious and a perfect way to end a relaxing girls night away. I... More

Let me start out by saying that I've never been to Newport and could only find out information via the internet, which is usually not the best idea. I found this hotel and noticed the smaller size which I was attracted to, along with the huge price difference between here and any hotel with similar reviews in the area. So... More

Nice little boutique hotel. Very helpful staff, offered in helping making reservations and things to do. As I've read in previous reviews, small but very clean bathroom, wall's are a little thin. Great little breakfast the next morning, not your usual eggs! Quiet area off the beaten path, not far from everything to do. Would definitely stay here again.
