“Great Place to stay, even in the winter!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We stayed here in March for a weekend for a convention. In addition to the convention activities, the hotel has some activities including mixology and yoga. The free shuttle service is great amenity to see more of Newport without having to drive. Rooms have water views...our faced downtown Newport. The bathroom is fairly compact as well as the rooms but we did not spend much time except to sleep.

All the staff we encountered were very friendly and inviting. Nice walking around the property for some exercise along with the gym which had some Nautilus along with some ellipticals and treadmills. There is also an indoor pool but did not use.

Perfect location, clean bright hotel with a nice restuarant and terrific staff.
Ocean view practically everywhere you look, and a shuttle bus runs every half hour to take you th Thames street where all the shops and restaurants are. GREAT location!!
Only negative is they card EVERYONE at the bar- even if you are 80!!

Stayed here in December for a holiday gathering of college friends, hotel was clean and comfortable and the shuttle service to downtown Newport is extremely convenient. Looked like it would be quite nice to stay here in the Summer as this hotel is right on the water.

Have been here many times, most recently this past weekend(2/22/13-2/24/13). The hotel staff is amazing, and even if there is a glitch, they do their best to smooth everything over and make you happy and satisfied with your experience there; there are not many places you can say that about CONSISTANTLY , thats why they get 5 stars! This property is well maintained and in an excellent location. The rooms ( I always book a Captain's Quarter room, as I travel with kids and feel the bigger room is better; I did try a suite once and went right back to the CQ room) are comfortable and clean and the views are breathtaking. You will not be disappointed! Can't wait to return for a weekend without the kids (then I can enjoy more than 1 of those excellent martinis in the lounge!)

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency for 2 nights during the Newport Winter Festival. 2 of the events were held at the Hyatt so it was very convenient. Of course the weather was chilly but we were able to walk to the center of Newport. The room was water view and a nice size, a bit cool but we prefer it that way for sleeping. The restaurant (breakfast) and bar was very good and they had a piano player in the late afternoon. The grounds would be beautiful, if it were summer, with the pool, bar, garden and walking path around the buildings. Will have to return in the warm weather.

Room Tip: ask for water view room

My family and I stayed at the Hyatt during Winter Fest 2013. The staff at the hotel was terrific! Hotel was clean and room was impeccable. Great place to stay! Loved sitting by the fire and knitting! Quiet atmosphere made it the perfect place to relax!

Room Tip: Suite was perfect for children!

We decided to take a stress-relief winter getaway in Newport for a long weekend in February. We found a package deal through AAA that included a free breakfast buffet each day. We paid a little extra for a waterview room, which was nice. We had never stayed there before, and the location was a plus, just a very short drive into the downtown area, and in the summer it woud be a very do-able walk.
The front desk person at check-in was extremely nice and helpful. He informed us that this weekend just happened to be Newport winter festival and pointed out a lot of the fun events going on, some of which were taking place at the hotel. He also told us about the fireworks scheduled for that evening and some good places to view them.
The room was very nice, with a lovely view of the harbor and the Newport Bridge. The room, bathroom and the shower were all clean, modern, and comfortable.
The best part of the Hotel was the lobby area, including the lobby bar and restaurant. All these areas had great views, and the lobby bar had a warm, cozy feel.
The restaurant was above average, we had the buffet breakfast and dinner one night. Had the weather been nicer, we probably would have gone to one of Newport's great restaurants downtown, but the restaurant in the Hotel had good food and friendly service.
The only negative I would possibly give the Hyatt is the indoor pool. It's rather small, and the pool area didn't look as modern or recently updated as the rest of the hotel.
We plan to come back in the summer, and try the outdoor pool and the outdoor attractions on the grounds of the hotel, they all look very enticing.

Room Tip: We had a room directly across from the elevator, and did not hear any outside noise.
