I stayed here this past weekend as well (same as previous writer - Oct. 19). I have to say, we had a very different experience. There are many reviews saying how horrible this hotel is. It was fine. It is a hotel - not the Westin. If you want a chicque hotel - stay at the Chanler (and pay the price).
The staff was friendly and helpful. I could not figure out how to turn the a/c on so I called the front desk. It is on the wall - not the a/c unit!
The bathroom is small but functional - pedestial sink. Tub could be updated but it was functional. The beds were adequate - again, not the Westin, but not hard as a rock (I would have liked softer pillows). Keurig coffee maker in the rooms.
The location couldn't be better. Walking distance to all of downtown and plenty of parking (much more than the local inns and b&b's).
3 women stayed in one room - and we managed fine.
Newport is expensive! - so although $300/night seems pricey, it isn't compared to other hotels in the area. If you are looking for upscale, this is probably not for you but, it isn't poor quality either. I rate this as an average hotel. For the price, the location, and being Newport, I would stay at this hotel again.
