Great place, probably the best in Newport, to take in the sunset from a rooftop bar. Inventive cocktail menu. Stay away from the food options...watermelon gazpacho with avocado cream was 'meh' and the charcuterie was boring.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Great location right in the centre of Newport. Not the most relaxing stay tho- the air conditioning is so noisy. You cant possibly sleep with that on which means a broken hot sleep. Our room overlooked the conservatory/outside seating area so got noise from that. Room close to lift so got noise from... More

We did enjoy our stay here. The service was excellent. The location perfect (right in the middle of town but on a quiet street. The food very good. We had s nice suite but 1. The first time the air conditioner came on I thought it was a leaf blower right outside our room. I had to sleep in earplugs.... More

Four of us stopped for a cocktail or tea and then went up to the top on the elevator to view Newport in the evening. The view was spectacular! There are illustrations framed, on the walls of Norman Rockwell and others. A beautiful hotel

The room was very spacious and clean. Good location. Staff were helpful and the hotel is charming. The Conservatory restaurant was OK for dinner, not great. Rooftop bar very popular for sunset. Spectacular views.

Arrive at least a half hour before sunset – get a good spot and just sit and relax. Absolutely the perfect spot to watch the sunset in Newport. Not many people know about it, so you'll normally find a spot. It's definitely worth the walk up to the hotel.

What happens when you combine a great location, a well-appointed room and a nice roof bar with a really terrible kitchen and an indifferent front desk staff? Not much. There are plenty of other places to stay in Newport.

What should have been a highlihght of our recent trip to the Rhode Island was just disapointing. The property itself is full of character and if the owners had taste and style they could do something amazing with it. Checking in was the highlight of the stay and the reception staff are great. That's where it ends... The rooms are... More

Spent this past weekend there. My second time and not my last. This is the quintessential boutique hotel.Tremendous staff. First rate customer service. My room was beautiful: unique, large and smartly decorated. The roof deck is a showstopper: One of only two in downtown Newport that I know of...Great view of the harbor and downtown. Just spectacular. Yes: the hotel... More
