The front office staff does all the normal duties expected of a hotel check-in desk plus making healthy breakfasts, while baking fresh mouth-watering pastries all day. The location is about a 15-20 minutes walk to beaches, cliff walk, and the colorful wharf. The rooms are very comfortable, but not very big. Close to grocery shopping, restaurants, and International Tennis Hall... More

We travel to Newport for the tennis tournament every year,but this was our first time at the Attwater,and it will definitely not be our last! The king suite was huge,and perfect for our needs,with a door in between to separate the early riser from the sleeper! Bed was super comfy-- like a giant fluffy pillow. Breakfast was great-- the small... More

We loved our stay at the Attwater. The queen suite was beautiful, modern, clean and very private. The beach stone shower floor - very cool. Being centrally located in between the beaches, mansions, restaurants and shops made it very easy to go in any direction. Hospitality was at it's best by the managers and staff. The homemade scones are a... More

Just got back from a week long road trip with my son and we have to say that the Attwater was our favourite stop along the way. It has a very casual vibe, almost like walking into your own home. The staff are extremely friendly but not in your face. The room was spacious and nicely laid out. Perfect location... More

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... More

The hospitality at The Attwater is awesome - unobtrusive but very friendly and very informative. Andrea and Billy manage a great property. Their culinary backgrounds are displayed in the wonderful small plate breakfasts and the delicious afternoon treats. Stepping out of the hotel puts you in a great location to explore and enjoy Newport. Any direction you turn sets you... More

This hotel was great for the money. We got upgraded to a suite. Very convenient to walk everywhere. Loved the interior design of the rooms. I especially liked it because it wasn't touristy. But you could walk or drive to all the charming spots.

We just got back from a few days in Newport. We stayed at The Attwater. We were very happy with the accommodations. The room was very clean. It felt like we were the first people to ever use the room since it was so clean. The location was fine. I was happy to be on a quiet street. There was... More

Stayed at this "boutique style" hotel for a long weekend in June. Hotel was great, but what set it apart from from other hotels was the service. The general managers (Billy & Andrea) are awesome people. They are laid back, easy to talk to. They took the time from the busy morning rush to sit down with anyone who had... More
