I stayed at the John Banister Mansion on a few occasions & I loved the atmosphere. It's a small little inn that is located in the heart of Newport. The hotel is a few blocks away from the Clarke Cook House, Banister Wharf, and the night clubs. So I highly recommend it for the location & value of each room.
