We were originally booked to stay at another property but due to overbooking they moved us to the Attwater. We are happy they did! Although we love the other property the Attwater exceeded our expectations. Great location and in walking distance to all. Staff was super friendly!

This is a lovely small hotel with very clean , adorably decorated rooms. Peter was an extremely friendly, accommodating host who had all the information you could possibly need for a visit. The breakfasts were very nicely presented and delicious. Great location for walking to many places to eat, drink and explore. On the negative, there were many common areas to sit, however only the downstairs was cooled. The second and third floor lounges were too hot to sit with coffee or wine in evenings as were the hallways walking thru. The AC was off in those areas. There was outside seating, but was not lit at night to enjoy a cool evening cocktail after dinner out. In addition, if you’re a larger or taller person, at least in our room, the shower stall very small. All rooms involve a stair climb except for 1 downstairs so if you have trouble be sure to reserve that room.

We appreciate your feedback on our common areas and how we can make them more inviting, particularly during these warmer months. Those are comments we’ll discuss internally, even as we start marching into a cooler fall. It was lovely being of service to you and we can’t wait to see you again during your future travels.

My wife and I had a deluxe king room on 3rd floor and stayed 4 nights. The room was nice, spacious and extremely clean. Small bathroom, but fine for us. The overall feel of the place was quite nice. We loved taking our breakfast on the back deck when the weather was good. It's a nice space, and doesn't seem used very much. We did hear a baby crying for quite a while one night, this happens. Bed was VERY comfortable. Peter was excellent, very helpful and friendly. We found the breakfasts to be just okay. I understand the limitations of serving a good breakfast without cooking to order. We loved the location of the Attwater, we walked almost everywhere! So many great restaurants around. The main parking lot is pretty tight to maneuver in. Street parking seemed readily available, and the designated lot across the street is always available. The Attwater was a good choice!

Stayed at this beautiful boutique hotel recently with our adult daughter. We enjoyed a delightful stay and were very nicely looked after by the hotel's friendly and able team. They serve an excellent small breakfast. We found the location of the hotel very convenient. We hope to stay there again on our next visit to Newport.

My husband and I stayed in a junior suite at the Attwater and would do it again. The hotel is beautifully decorated and has a modern feel. The bed was comfortable and the sheets are quite possibly the softest I’ve ever slept on! The morning coffee and breakfast items in the lobby are a nice touch. This was our first time in Newport and the location can’t be beat for visiting museums, shops, restaurants and the historic homes on Bellevue. We walked everywhere and loved the quieter feel of this area compared to the more touristy hustle and bustle of the hotels located in the harbor area.

Great location. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. The free trolley #67 stops close by. Very clean. Modern decor. Breakfast had good variety. The only drawback was the size of the room given the price we paid. Although does seem everything in area is $$ this time of year. We had a queen room. Very small. If you want spacious this will not be the room for you.

Hello Cooper3884, We’re smiling reading that our property’s convenience, tidiness, breakfast, and more all impressed. You’re correct in noting that summer in Newport can be a high-demand period. Consider checking in with us during another time of year to perhaps enjoy even more value than you experienced during your most recent visit. Wishing you well!

We try to stay at hotels that we would like to return to - and would rate Very Good or Excellent. Needless to say we won't be staying at the Attwater again. The layout was good, lobby to the right, breakfast room to the left, sitting rooms on each floor. The location was convenient to the Tennis Hall of Fame (which we didn't visit this time) and the Cliff Walk (which we took in a full loop from the hotel). But that's about it. We were disappointed with the room and the two breakfasts. We could hear the guests in the neighboring room. The shower was the smallest that we have ever seen; so small that we had trouble using it. A "large" person would not have been able to use the shower. The bed was old and creaky. The second breakfast was a little better than the first, but neither were very good. Peter was somewhat helpful but he couldn't make up for the basic problems.

Hello ShortStack12, Thank you for joining us and for lauding our property’s layout, location, and your service experience with Peter! It’s clear that not all aspects of our Newport home aligned with your preferences which, while rare among the majority of our guests, we understand. All we can say is that our property offers a variety of room types and our breakfast selections rotate regularly. On that note, we’re hopeful that if ever you do choose to join us again, perhaps you’ll enjoy an improved experience. Whether it’s with us or another property in the area, nothing would make us happier than you taking the time to explore our wonderful community in the future. Take care!
