I just returned from a business trip which caused me to stay in this less than desirable hotel. It has a great location and some nice harbor views but that is where the superlatives end. This is an old hotel that has very poor infrastucture and function. I walked in to find a rather aloof hotelier who took his time even to acknowledge my arrival despite the late hour. His service was slow and apatheitc as if I had interupted his evening. He could only offer me a room with two double beds despite my obvious height demanding a king. The elevator is incredibly slow and antiquated which matches the decor. Rooms are small and the bathroom is literally 4 feet by 4 feet. There is no room for a counter in the bathroom and the shower/tub is fit for a child but not an adult. There are minimal amenities and no ceiling vent. Water pressure is poor and the plumbing fixtures rattle and hum with rust and age. They have attempted to upgrade the look somewhat with better towels and linens but there is only so much lipstick that you can put on a pig. The bed is fairly comfortable but that won't matter because the AC unit is so loud you will have troube sleeping. The TV malfunctioned regularly and the phone did not work. No place to plug-in your electronics save one light outlet or balancing your iPhone/iPad on the sink in the bathroom. No closet in the rooms, just an open rack for hanging clothes. There is no fitness center, just an old pool that was not inviting.This property is a tear down and I cannot recommend it. Newport was one of the first playgrounds for the rich and famous but none of them would ever stay here.
