This was our second time staying at The Attwater and we will definitely stay again! The hotel is quaint and quiet and so clean! The breakfast cafe is awesome and they brew the BEST coffee! We stayed in a king room, more than enough space to spread out. The afternoon cookies are "spectacular " especially if you just need a...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed July 7, 2016 via mobile

We have been coming to Newport every summer for 22 years. This was definitely my favorite hotel stay! The Attwater is off the main Newport roads but close enough to be very convenient. The rooms are very spacious and beautifully decorated. The service was incredible- very friendly and responsive. The small plates breakfast was fantastic- lots of different tastes- my...

This is such a fun (young) place to stay. I would recommend booking when the weather is warmer to enjoy the outdoor deck. Very pleasant staff. Tasty small bites for breakfast, like cheddar biscuits or cheese and dried fruit. The parking is difficult. The bed was so comfortable. If you are looking for something that is not"beige", this is the...

Our bedroom (suite) at 1st floor was perfect... very quick and convenient check in and check out, with a great "home made style" breakfast. The hotel is clear, clean, and has his "own atmosphere' of a boutique hotel. We had perfect sleep and stay.. We will come back !!!

I'm really torn about how to review this hotel. Got off to a bad start with the check-in person, let's just say we were less than impressed. She started out asking if we knew their cancellation policy? Then, after silence from us, said, "oh, you're here, guess you're not canceling". This is presented as a "Boutique Hotel", but we have...

Just returned from a two night stay with our best friends whom we travel with all over the earth. This trip was to be a quick weekend getaway from our "north of Boston" homes. Criteria for our trips together always include a great little gem of a place with comfortable and updated accommodations (large hotels are so boring (yawn!), great...

We're thrilled to hear how wonderful your getaway with us was! It's great that you were able to enjoy many of the amenities including the comfortable beds, great shower, the in-room iPad's, afternoon cookies and coffee, as well as the fresh, small bite breakfast. We are aware of the exterior floodlights next door and are working on resolving that issue....

Amazing accommodations! Andrea and Billy made sure that we had everything we needed. The entire staff was fantastic. There were treats each day. We could tell they took pride in the food the presentation. Loved the sweet little extras like smoothies in the room when we arrived and a spa gift. We'd head back in a heartbeat. Perfect location to...

My girlfriend and I loved the Attwater's location right in the center of Newport. Andrea and Billy were outstanding hosts and really went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. We stayed in the King Suite which was lovely. Highly recommend!

Really comfortable, very quaint, and insanely well-curated, the Attwater was the best place to be during a rare March blizzard that limited much more than anything other than reading, cards, and Apple TV. Manager Billy gave us a very generous upgrade (highly recommend joining the Lark Club - crazy-good perks) and we weathered the storm in our suite. Look forward...

“No elevator - choose wisely if you have any mobility issues. Second floor is about 17 steps - third floor another 17 or so.”

“We were on the third floor - there's no elevator. If you're not able to make the climb - let them know in advance. There is on-site parking.”
