We (3 adult family members) stayed at time share due to exchange. We lucked out and got assigned a 1 bdrm 4th floor apartment. (I think we were 1 week past prime season). The 1 bdrm had a 2nd floor loft with full bathroom, balcony very spacious. The lower floor had kitchen and living room, kitchen, 1/2 bath and balcony. Getting to top floor you went up a spiral staircase (more on this later). The couch pulled out and the mattress was unusually comfortable. Breakfast was decent. Front desk was helpful. Maids were very friendly and great at cleaning. I drove to property but we didn't need to use car much. It was nice having a parking spot. As for location it was near everything but saying that most places (B&Bs and hotels) are walking distance and have parking. Newport is very walkable and everything is close. There were so many hotels, B&Bs, restaurants. I don't know how there is enough business for everyone. Still this property deserves it's high ratings. I saw the 2 bedrooms onthe 4th floor and they have a sturdy staircase instead of spiral staircase and 2 bedrooms upstairs. I don't think the rooms are handicapped accessible for people who have difficulty climbing stairs;however I'm sure the lower floors are on one level and they are handicapped accessible. The building has a large elevator. The unit was pretty quiet. It was a good time to visit, just past prime season but still lots of activity and great weather.
