“Central Location But Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I imagine the cost was a function of when I was traveling, but the cost did not justify the service I received. Additionally, I only had a parking lot view, and you can hear the traffic/street noise from the 4th floor. The room was clean enough but a bit run down. Parking was an additional costs, which was expected. The desk staff were courteous but the line for check in was a bit long so I was unable to ask questions/for suggestions about the area. I would recommend this hotel only if you weren't able to find something more affordable/accommodating.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

This hotel is perfect in terms of location. It is right in the heart of the Marina and wharf, close to the Mansions and cliff walks and easy to get back onto the main roads to travel in and out of the centre. It's a bit of a pain not being able to check in until 4pm, especially if you are only staying a night.
We had a lovely room that provided a sliding patio door onto a lawned area overlooking the harbor. We were able to watch the sunset with a glass of wine, which was a real unexpected pleasure.
Staff go out of their way to provide excellent service and the amenities offered in the rooms were good. It is a standard hotel room with the benefit of excellent views (very comfortable beds!)
We would recommend this hotel when staying in Newport and will hopefullly be back one day.

Room Tip: Splurge for the harbor view, ground floor if you can with the sliding patio doors!

This hotel is perfect for a Newport vacation! Located centrally to everything Newport has to offer, this hotel is the perfect spot to enjoy Newport's shopping and restaurants. From booking to check-out, the staff was professional and courteous. The rooms are very nice, clean, comfortable with all the amenities you need. We ate breakfast in the restaurant every morning ... very nicely done. The bar on site made the weekend's evening's nice. This is a great place to stay ... book now!

My friend and I traveled to Newport to check out the mansion tour and cliff walk. This hotel was great! Perfect location, clean rooms and friendly staff. My friend accidentally lost her ring when we left, and the staff found it and called us to pick it up!

Since moving to Boston in August I had my first visit to Newport over the Easter weekend. Having read some of the reviews on here I was a little concerned after booking this hotel. However, from the moment I arrived my fears were put to rest - the reception staff were friendly and helpful, the room (a King with Harborview) was fantastic (with coffee-maker, very comfortable bed and a sliding door right out onto the marina) and the location (right in the thick of it) was just what I wanted.

I will certainly be returning to Newport over the summer, and will be hoping to stay at this hotel when I do - great hotel, thank you so much for a fantastic stay!

Room Tip: Rooms with harborview give you a wonderful view to wake up to each morning.

We stayed here in 3 different rooms for St. Pat's weekend in Newport. It was a great location and a decent price. Our room was a little small and between 3 rooms, 2 had bathroom issues that needed to be fixed. We requested rooms together and got that. Parking was free as part of our hotel stay which was nice b/c we expected to pay extra.
We would probably stay here again b/c it was a decent price for the weekend and we didn't have any issues with check in or check out and staff was quick to respond to requests.
Very basic but served it's purpose...a bed to sleep in so nobody was driving.

Living in Massachussetts we travel to Newport quite often for long weekend stays. This is the first time we stayed at this hotel. It is the BEST!! Our stay was around Christmas time,and it was a great experience,the best resturants and shops are within walking distance, You feel safe and secure walking around day or night. The mansions are a quick drive from here. As far as the hotel goes,it was Clean,staff were very helpful,the rooms have a wonderful view of the harbor. I would recommend this hotel any time of the year. We will be going back this summer. TRUST ME YOU WILL LOVE IT!! Oh,they also have flat screen tvs,Kurieg coffee makers,most important I cannot stress enough,the rooms,and baths are kept immaculate!!

Room Tip: Try to reserve harbor view,first floor or top floor does not matter,the view is spectacular
