We really enjoyed our stay at this elegant home. The entrance was warm and inviting, the living and dining rooms were comfortable and maintained with the grace and style of the late 1800’s. Breakfast was delicious and well served. But most of all, the service related to our reservation with late arrival and timely breakfast allowed us to begin our... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay last weekend with friends at the Architect's Inn. We had toured the Inn a few Summers ago and were unable to get a reservation on previous Newport trips, but this time everything fell into place just perfectly. We loved the secluded location within one block from Bellevue Ave and a ten minute walk from Thames... More

The Inn was gorgeous. The room was charming. The decor was lovely.We loved the fireplace near the bed! It made for a very romantic evening. The location was great. It was close to restaurants and other attractions. The Inn keeper's recommendations of restaurants and nightlife was knowledgable and very helpful. The minor problems with towels and water were addressed within... More

My girlfriend and I came here for a weekend getaway and can't say enough good things about this place; the building is beautifully maintained and a short walk from just about everything in Newport. Service was stellar, and the breakfast the next morning was fantastic. We weren't able to meet Nick, but Brian was a fantastic host, and made us... More

First of all, this is a beautiful historical Newport home, furnished with lots of antiques. There are a couple of rooms on the main floor that are very inviting, and offer lots of reading materials, and information about the Newport area. It is also in an excellent location in Newport. It's about 3 (long) blocks down to the Cliff Walk,... More

My husband and I stayed there last week and it we recommend it. It's reasonably priced, and a lovely home decorated for fall. The owners are very nice and helpful. The room was clean- we stayed on the 2nd floor- and nice. The atmosphere is conducive to meeting the other guests, and there were some friendly people staying there. Breakfast... More

This was a fantastic place for a weekend getaway. The owners Nick and Brian were very welcoming and made our stay extremely enjoyable. The redwood room was very cozy and the bed extremely comfortable. The entire mansion was very clean. The guide book in the room was so helpful in helping us figure out where to go. Additionally, if you... More

As I have mentioned before, online travel agents are not your friends. They are trying to sell you something. They do not have contracts with our Inn to sell our products but they do it anyway....which should be your first clue that MAYBE they do not know what they are selling. We strongly encourage to visit our website and view... More

We have stayed at Architect's Inn many times over several years, and Nick and Brian always make it an excellent experience. From the clean, cozy, beautifully appointed amenities to the delicious, freshly prepared breakfast food and evening snacks, they do not miss a trick. Because of the inn's history and Nick and Brian's reputation, the Inn always draws an interesting,... More
