We have stayed at several different hotels and inns in the Newport area but usually go off season. We picked this hotel this time mostly because our other choices were either booked or only had very expensive rooms available. This is not to say the Marriott room was inexpensive. During July nothing is inexpensive in Newport. The one very nice thing about this hotel is the location. Any one who has tried to get into the Newport and the wharf area during the summer on a Saturday will know how crazy backed up the traffic can be coming off the bridge and into the wharf area. The Marriott is right at the start of all the craziness. This hotel has underneath self-parking or valet parking so once you park your car you don't have to think about trying to park it again. Nice walking distance to the wharf, shops and restaurants. Our room was nice. Typical of a Marriott. Very clean with a nice updated bathroom. Bed was quite comfortable. Our room unlike many of the rooms had a private french balcony so we did not have to contend with people walking by and peeking into our room as many have mentioned. We found the staff all very friendly and accommodation. Hotel was quite full (I think sold out) when we were there but we did not encounter any real noise in the hallways. We did hear the wake-up call for the room next to ours in the morning and a few doors closing but that was about it.
We had breakfast in the restaurant which has beautiful views of the harbor. Nice buffet or off the menu selections with fresh foods.
All and all we had a pleasant stay. The location alone may get us back there again.
