“First time in Newport - great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Our son was home for Christmas and had always wanted to visit Rhode Island.
We chose a one night stay in Newport at the Newport Beach Hotel after reading all the reviews on al the hotels. We arrived at 4pm and the assistant at the front desk was great - although we reserved a 2 bedroom with joint bathroom in the original hotel, we were offered a room in the new suite building across the street. We were given the keys to look at both rooms. We looked at the rooms in the historical hotel and didn't even want to see the suites room. The hotel had so much character, the rooms were just as nice as posted on their site so we decided to stay with the historical hotel. The views of the ocean were great from the rooms and from the hotel bar. We walked around the hotel at night and had a few drinks in the local establishments. All were fun. We also took a long walk on the Cliff Walk which was just down the street from the hotel. We had dinner down town - which was a short drive from the hotel. Loved the Newport Beach Hotel and would love to stay in this hotel again. The rooms were nice, bathroom nice, beds were very comfortable too. Overall experience was awesome.

Room Tip: Reasonal priced hotel and great location near downtown Newport

We just returned from our second pre-New Year's Eve stay at the Newport Beach Hotel and Suites. We had a great time. We wanted to just have a quiet time away after the Christmas holidays so we decided to buy food and cook in. The mini kitchen has everything we needed to make great supper and breakfast meals. We had a room with a view of the pond area outside the hotel which was quite nice. We enjoyed relaxing and watching a DVD. The highlight of the evening was our visit to the rooftop hot tub. Yes, it was a chilly night but once we made it into the tub we were quite comfortable. We also very much enjoyed our brisk morning walk on the beach that is just across the street from the hotel.
The only recommendation I have for the hotel staff is to turn the heat up a bit more in the rooms before the guests arrive. Once we had the heat going the whole space was much more enjoyable.
The other recommendation I need to make is to families staying in the hotel. And this comes from a person who has and still does love to travel with her family. Please try to keep your children from running in the halls unsupervised and jumping up and down on the floor until late hours in the evening. The management has no control over this, only you do. There are plenty of ways for children to have fun, e.g., in the indoor pool and hot tub. We all can share and enjoy this lovely hotel together if we all take responsibility for ourselves and respect the rights of others. It is never too early to help your children learn this important lesson.
We plan to return to this hotel again next year. Thanks for a great time away.

My friend and I found this hotel on discount from hotwire, and spent a night here for a little girl's night. It's a nice place, but they gave us a room with only one queen bed instead of two doubles or a king, even though the place was basically empty. We stayed in the "hotel" section rather than the suites, so we had to go outside in the snow to get to the pool and hot tub, which was kind of a drag in the winter. There's a roof top hot tub, which I would say was the coolest part of this hotel. Sitting outside in a hot tub during a snow storm was really beautiful! The pool is small, and the hot tub connected to the pool indoors is really dirty, but the roof top one was very nice. The room was comfortable and clean, and the hotel offers nice ocean views. It's also very close to downtown Newport and the mansion tours. I would recommend this place to friends, but only at the discounted rate. I wouldn't pay full price!

If this were a European hotel, it may have gotten a star or two more for the room. But the room was the smallest I've ever stayed in, ever. Fine the have fridge and microwave, but you need to climb around it at night getting to the bathroom. The bathroom was a good size and had a glimpse of the ocean. The main room looked out to a eave from the corner of the building that was basically blocking most light into the room. Absolutely disappointed. I was offered to upgrade to a larger king size for additional money (we had already upgraded to the king) or go back down to a larger room with a Queen size bed. We opted to stay but it was a real toss up. I hate this room. Feels claustrophobic. Do yourself a favor and make sure you understand the better reviews are for the newer building across the way and NOT this cubby hole for a room. This is room 479 so avoid it at all costs.

We stayed here when we visited Newport for my son's graduation from Navy Officer Candidate School. The corner suite gave us a comfortable and private place to sit and visit, play cards, watch television and relax in the home-like environment my son missed so much during training. The staff were very accomodating about providing an extra dinette chair and dishes for use during our stay. Our visit was at the end of November and everything was quiet and peaceful. The views were beautiful.

The staff was friendly and the amenities were great. We stayed in the new building. The room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. The bathroom was larger than what we expected, and the living room was designed well (not huge, but organized well). Although we didn't use the pool or rooftop deck, both looked great. The building is also walking distance from a pretty decent beach, and a five minute drive to Newport. The only knock on the place is that the restaurant wasn't terrific, however there are about a half dozen good places to eat within a couple blocks. Overall, I couldn't ask for anything else with regard to the room and building, the neighborhood was quiet and right on the water, and it's close to everything I wanted/needed. You're also getting a great deal since they aren't charging "Newport" rates.

We stayed after Hurricane Sandy hit. Elevator out but stair were fine. Stairwells were clean and carpeted. We stayed on the 3rd floor and the top floor is a "party" room. The noise was ridiculous! Our tv shook, light fixtures swayed and we kept calling the front desk. This started at 7pm and went on till 3:30. Our small children kept asking us what the noises were. They were actually scared and slept in our bed while we laid there trying to sleep. They eventually kicked them out but it was already too late to matter. I did speak to an executive at the located a few days later and waited to write the review. It's been over a month and he didn't follow through with what he said. Very disappointing. Overall, the hotel is beautiful! But I would not stay there. I read a few reviews complaining about the same things. Wish we would have listened. We were there in the off season, and the executive told me they have security to handle all this in the peak season. I can't even imagine how loud it is then! The staff was very friendly and spoke very clear english. Again, it was beautiful but if you need to sleep think twice before you book.
