My husband and I chose Newport for our first vacation in 3 years, and we wanted to stay somewhere special for our 5-day trip. We were not disappointed! We stayed at the Architects Inn in the Belmont Room, which was beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable, and charming. It made us feel like went back in time. The bed was incredibly comfortable and we slept soundly for the most part. What we really appreciated, aside from the general atmosphere of class and Victorian charm, was the attentive, warm service we received from both the owner and the housekeeper. They were always on hand to answer questions, help with activity suggestions, and give directions. Breakfast was elegant and tasty, and we really enjoyed the extra touches like the afternoon snack and spring water on hand. We also enjoyed relaxing in the lower level of the house and the nice garden outside. What we really liked was that the B&B was within walking distance of pretty much everything we wanted to do in Newport, including the beach, mansions, and shops--which saved us money on parking! It was definitely a much-needed fairy-tale getaway and worth every penny.
