Stayed there just after New Years. The hotel is beautiful located on Goat Island by Newport. The staff was friendly and cooperative. The room was clean, the lobby bar, though empty, was really nice and looked like it could be fun. I would stay there again without hesitation. You'd probably want to drive or use the hotel shuttle to get into town, but being surrounded by water with great views more than makes up for that.
Now for some negatives. I had a feeling I was being nicheled and dimed. On check in, we learned there was a mandatory $25 property fee which included use of the shuttle, exercise room, self parking and a couple other things, I wouldn't have been surprised if it included use of the elevator (It didn't. The elevator was free). One morning there was no charge for the muffins that accompanied the free coffee, the next day they were $2.00. If the room rate were $25 - $35 more, we would have stayed there anyway, but this way it looked like the Hyatt was about $30 less than the Marriott in town. It was more annoying than a deal breaker.
The room, though clean with a great view was weird. It was laid out to take advantage of the view, but as a result the space wasn't used well and it seemed cramped and over filled with furniture. The bathroom wall was partially clouded glass block, so if it was used it during the night, it partially lit up the room.
