“Wonderful hotel, attentive staff, all in the middle of Hurricane Sandy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We stayed as a family of four (kids aged 7 and 4) in October 2012, during the 3 nights that Hurricane Sandy hit Newport. The irony of travelling from the UK to have a short New England luxury holiday, only to be greeted with my namesake hurricane, was not lost on us!

Despite this (and the fact only one other party stayed at the hotel those three nights), the staff were unbelievable gracious, making our visit a really fun and cozy one. We stayed in the main suite with the two fireplaces, and tucked up with books and the tv for the three days. Room service always made an effort to give us the food we needs, although we did venture out once for necessities and it was not too bad.

Newport itself is lovely and we managed to have a few great meals and do some shopping the day we left. We would love to go back to this hotel and stay in the original cottages we booked outside, which were deemed too unsafe to use during the hurricane. The restaurants and lounge areas in the sleek downstairs lobby are, during "normal" times, a delight I'm sure.

It has taken months to write this review but we wanted to thank the staff (especially Vanessa) for being so helpful and available during what was unfortunately a bad storm and tough time for that part of the US region.

Room Tip: If you can spring for it, get the main suite, which is like a small new York apartment!

My husband and I stayed at Forty One North for Winter Fest. We were happy that we could bring our dog-though there is a pet fee. The location was awesome as it was within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants on Thames St and America's Cup Blvd. We chose a package in which parking and breakfast were included. Parking was right in front of the hotel and the breakfast was phenomenal- eggs any style, two huge pieces of hand cut French toast, fruit and fresh squeezed orange juice. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Forty 1 North is in a great location and has the most freindly staff around. Rooms are very clean. Two outstanding restaurants on location. We highly recommend this hotel. Also have suites and bigger rooms if needed. The staff we help you out with anything, they will let you know what's going on during your stay and also recommend things to do. We really loved it and plan on returning soon. Tom & Linda Dolan

My husband and I arrived in Newport on a perfect winter's day, in December 2012. We drove straight past the hotel, thinking it was someone's house, albeit in an odd location, considering the car park in front of it.
When we finally walked up the beautiful staircase and in through the solid wooden doors, we were greeted by a gentleman who looked like he could have been a guest. No stuffy check-in counter, just a laptop sitting on the corner of a bar.
We were taken up to our room, which had marina views, and shown the room "fob" - not a key or a card, just a little grey fob- the iPad, to get all the details about the hotel etc and the iphone for pretty much everything else. We were then left to our own devices but with the assurance that if there was anything we needed we only had to ask.

The bar/dining room downstairs is just beautiful and on our first night I wasn't hungry, so I ordered a bowl of pumpkin soup. It was absolutely perfect and just what I needed on a cold crisp winter's night.
They have private dining rooms too, which would be perfect for a celebration dinner.

Waking up to the view of the marina each morning, with the odd fishing boat still chugging in and out was just beautiful.

The hotel is perfectly located, close to all the shops and cafes, but far enough away that you can still enjoy the peace and quiet.

I can imagine that this hotel would be "the" place to go in summer, and I look forward to trying that theory out, the next time we are in Newport. I honestly couldn't imagine staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Get a room with a marina view. It will be a bit more, but it's so worth it.

I booked an executive dinner event at 41 North for 22 people. The process was simply perfect from beginning to end. Melisa, the Corporate Sales Manager was extremely helpful and responsive in helping ot select the best location for our event, as well as the most suitable menu for my guests. We started off with a cocktail hour in the library and then moved to the main dinning room for our dinner.

The entire staff was attentive to all of our needs. They also went out of their way, to deliver a gift to the CEO of my organization, after watching a presentation of gifts to the rest of our group. It's a long story to write, but let's say, one of the staff memebers ran to a store to purchase a token, that in turn we were able to present to the CEO of my organizaiton. It was one of those things that completed the evening, was never expected and exceed every expectation of myself and my group.

Keep up the great work team!

My husband and I have been to Newport many times. We went for a little getaway in December and our only disappointment was we only stayed one night! The bed, the linens, the pillows, the fireplace, the bathroom, etc were scrumptious! I didn't want to leave the room. Even though it's a slow time of year, the service did not disappoint, in fact they could not have been nicer or more attentive. Beautiful rooms, and common areas! You can't go wrong staying here!

My husband and I stayed at a forty 1 north at the beginning of November for what I like to call our "mini-moon" - a quick weekend getaway after our wedding. I found an amazing deal for this hotel on jet setter and I'm so happy I booked it- the price was a little over our budget otherwise. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous- chic & beautifully decorated yet the rooms are still cozy with a comfortable bed and gas fireplace in each room. The location is great- right on the harbor with wonderful views and within walking distance to all that Newport has to offer. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a lovely boutique hotel experience in Newport!
