My husband and I exchanged through RCI for this resort and were pleased to have been able to get a 2-bedroom 2-bathrrom unit for the beginning of October. Being after the "in season" the resort was very quiet, perfect for relaxing. We brought friends who also fell in love with it. It's location is perfect - at the quieter end... More

We actually had a reservation issue at another place, so the desk clerk called here and they got us a room. The staff was very friendly when we arrived. Very helpful with local info. We got a one bedroom for over $200, pretty pricey. Especially for the time of year. However, we were stuck and needed a place to stay... More

My husband and I decided to go to Newport for a short fall weekend at the very last minute and were pleasantly surprised to be able to use our RCI membership to find a place. The Wellington resort is a well-maintained property close to everything. Our unit was spacious and very clean with lots of amenities. They do not supply... More

We were so pleasantly surprised at this gem of a hotel in Newport. The suite we had was huge, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen and huge terrace overlooking the Newport harbor along with smaller terrace off the larger bedroom. It was immaculately clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. There was two beautiful pools, one... More

Four girlfriends and I stayed her last weekend and it was perfect for us. Spacious, on the water, a nice pool on the water, walking distance to all the action and a fair price. We would go back. That said, its not a "cool" place and there is no scene. The decor is also outdated (think wall paper and forget... More

Clean and spacious. A great value. Been here twice for bachelor parties and it really does the trick. Close to everything and nice pool. Not the Ritz, but quite a good place to stay in Newport and not spend $900 a night. Decor is a little old and the TVs are small and old but that's not why you go... More

This was our third visit to this property. Our group of two married couples enjoy this location on the harbor. We were easily able to view the fabulous fireworks on the 4th. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They were most willing to share their recommended restaurants. The Wellington is in a great location and the units are clean... More

The location is great, the view is great, the rooms were spacious, so I shouldn't really complain, but i will... I am a long time Hilton timeshare owner, so maybe I am spoiled, but this place touts itself as a top of the line resort and it really isn't. We checked into our room only to discover the A/C was...

Our group of two adults and two children stayed at the Wellington as guests of a family friend who has a timeshare there. It is a great location on the harbor and short walk to shopping and the restaurants on Thames. The unit was very clean and had everything we needed, even a working fireplace. A small terrace overlooking the... More
