We stayed with Hyatt in Newport a couple of weeks ago on a quick weekend trip for one night with two teenagers in tow. New renovations at this property make for a beautiful lobby with a contemporary feel and nice deck. Had lunch in the bar - two dishes went back to the kitchen -- food needs some work (saw other reviews with same problem) - nice waitress.
We booked the Captain Quarters ... be prepared to walk. For the larger room size Captain Quarters are set basically apart from main hotel. Past ballrooms, past the pool and into its own wing. To us it was a little creepy and made us feel like we were too far from an easy walk to breakfast and to grab a quick coffee, etc. Management should add some furniture/flowers - chairs, perhaps some music in the hallways etc. at Captains Quarters entrance and halls to make it seem like you're actually connected to the main property. If we go back we would choose to take the smaller room and stay in the main building.
That said rooms were spacious -- comfortable beds, weird bathrooms facing into the room, tried the "jacuzzi" bathtub (don't bother) - we had a view of the water and bridge which was beautiful. Front desk folks very nice. Pool area small with no bathrooms available to change in -- and a long cold walk back to the room. Good exercise room - we liked the touch of the cold washcloths in the fridge.
Breakfast with the AAA rate was good with a great view. Nice selection on the buffet -- lovely waitress. Seemed a little pricey if not included in your room. $21.00 - If I recall correctly. Overall, and ok stay but will probably return to Marriott for walking location.
Overall, the Hyatt on Goat Island was a comfortable stay. Enjoy.
