Stayed for my second time at Hyatt Regency Newport Rhode Island at 1 Goat Island Rd in Dec 2014. The hotel is ideally located right on the water and looking on the classic Newport Bridge and light house. A half mile walk to classic downtown restaurants and shopping. There is parking on-site but it costs a 20 dollar "resort fee" that gets one "free access" to the hotel gym as well. Hotel gym is among best you find for a hotel like this. Running Newport is absolutely ideal with brilliant opportunities to run along the ocean and wide avenues with famous mansions. This area has some of the best running in the country but wear reflective gear as there is a lot of traffic in summer and spring seasons and since the tourist traffic drops off in the winter and fall, cars can be less attuned to looking out for runners. The first room I was offered was on the fourth floor and the whole floor had a highly toxic odor due to some sort of maintenance work. The smell was even in my room as well. After complaining I was moved right away to a better floor and I no longer noticed the smell until I turned on the heater--which I then shut off. Bed was comfortable but you could tell the mattress was old as it dipped where the majority of previous guests had slept. Room was very clean and bathroom spacious and worked well. Staff was very nice, lobby is beautiful. Overall very worth the winter rate I paid and a very enjoyable stay.
