“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

The hotel has a fantastic location on the harbor and a outdoor restaurant the most beautiful sea view. The staff is professional and friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and modern. The restaurant is really good, we tried it out for breakfast and lunch. One of our best hotel experiences.

Ya know- we have stayed in 5 stars and luxury hotels. Someone recommended to check out 41 north. I called to inquiry about booking a week.. and was greeting by a gentleman who basically didn't care that I wanted to become a guest. Oh well... booked our vacation somewhere else. All I can say is that to management is that they need to train their front desk or reservation people with respect and kindness!

Room Tip: Get someone who cares on the telephone to treat potential customers with respect and proper hotel bu...

Total customer attention.Trendy,yes but very clean and fresh.Entry sculpture was indicative of what was to come.had a harbor view and a little music from below.Multiple shower heads in bath was fun.Fully stocked bar with the best brands.Pricey,but competitive by Newport standards.
My new best friend Lia took great care of us with dinner reservations and suggestions.
Yes the staff need experience,but they are certainly on the right track to getting it.

Room Tip: Room 17 was great.

Splendid one night stay aided by fine weather, terrific staff, and breathtaking harbor views. This place is an oasis in what at times can be a noisy town, as it's set back from the main road and behind it is the most beautiful restaurant surrounded by water and huge, ocean-faring yachts. We took a chance and used the Web site with one day's notice and scored a very nice room. Immaculate, tasteful, and with a very comfortable bed. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Go for the harbor view.

We stayed for three days in lovely water view rooms. The rooms were clean and well equipped except they could use a coffee maker. The location of the hotel was ideal - within walking distance of almost everything. Staff were very willing to shuttle us to and from more distant mansions.
The problem we had was with loud music filtering into our room. The first night we called, and they gave a reply which seems to have been a standard reply. "This is a trendy hotel". We finally determined that main source of the music was a speaker just outside our door that played the same "trendy" music that was playing in the lobby. I tried sleeping with a pillow on my head but did not sleep well that night. The next morning the manager said he would take care of it and we were provided with free breakfast but told we should realize that this was a "trendy hotel". We explained that trendy doesn't mean noise in our room to keep us awake. The second night it was a bit lower but we managed to sleep by downloading a sound machine on our iPad. Sometime during the night, the music went off but it was back on bright and early. The third night we used our sound machine again.
We think the hotel was lovely but consider a quiet room for sleeping a necessity unless the noise is coming from a busy city street and cannot be controlled. This was coming from the hotel. They did lower the speaker a bit but we continued to have noise in our room.

My husband and I were in Newport just for one night and we didn't want to waste our time driving around town. Forty 1 North is in a perfect location, only a couple of blocks from the main shopping wharfs, LOTS of restaurants and bars with in a few block radius. The shell mural in the lobby is absolutely stunning.

The room was huge, the mattress was so comfortable we didn't want to leave. Our view was overlooking the parking lot, which was fine, we were only there for one night, and it was a bit cheaper.

After reading some of the reviews, about clueless staff and being confused about checking in, that was certainly not our experience. The valets took our car, yes you have to pay to park just like every other hotel in Newport, a staff member, Elizabeth was just inside to greet us, took us to our room explained all the cool features - ipads instead of ugly binders hold all the hotels information - key fobs instead of card keys.

We had drinks on the deck before venturing out - a bit pricey but then again you are surrounded by multi million dollar yachts.

There was a bottle of water waiting for us when we got back after dinner and bar hopping. The mini bar in the room is really expensive, so beware. The room was quiet - the hotel is set off the main street so you don't hear the traffic.

We would stay here again anytime!
