I used booking.com to reserve a room at the Architect's Inn. That was a mistake, for the rate provided there did not include breakfast. This was my mistake for not catching the omission, but I do expect breakfast at a B&B, otherwise it would just be a B. Adding breakfast was amazingly expensive, so I skipped that, figuring I'd learned... More

We just returned from a wonderful 5 night stay at Architect's Inn in Newport RI, but must say that after reading the earlier somewhat negative review were rather nervous about our trip. On arrival, we wondered if we were staying in the same place as Ralph11 from Paris, France or did he just go out of his way and attempt... More

My submitted review got an unusual, response from the proprietor, which did not address my disappointment, but instead a different approach was taken. Therefore, I felt it important to further clarify my evaluation of the property. It is my intent to help people in choosing lodging that meets their needs and expectation, so they walk away happy. Constructive reviews also... More

Found property ok and met by one of the innkeepers Brian, pleasant and friendly welcome...he gave us a quick guide of the main areas of the house. We explored Newport and returned to house and took advantage of the peace and quiet and sat in one of the 2 living rooms beautifully laid out and restored back to 1900s New... More

First of all, this guy is a weasel for sitting in my home while I served him breakfast and smiled and said everything was great and now writes this review. And people wonder why I don't get more friendly with the customers; it's because of people like this where you open your home up to someone and they just rip... More

My friend and I stayed here for Labor Day Weekend. It was the perfect place! and in the perfect location too. The house is exactly half a mile from both sides of the island-downtown shops and restaurants on one side, beach and cliff walk on the other. The owners were super friendly and welcoming-even when we got there late and... More

My wife and I got a great rate online and stayed for a night. Nice shaded free parking across the street. We were greeted by Nick, the innkeeper who was friendly and informative about everything inside and around Newport. You do need to take your shoes off, which some people may not like, but it's something we do at home... More

Nick and Brian gave us a twelve bedroom house for ten days, fully furnished with precious antiques, room for over twenty of us for a family reunion, and they disappear. They sent in the housekeepers a couple of times, but that was it. If this had been my house I would have been hovering constantly. They are the consummate innkeepers... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
History, Art, Architecture and Antiques adorn this fabulous Guesthouse. Located directly in the center of Newport in the sophisticated "Top of the Hill" neighborhood where the oldest mansions are still thriving as private homes. This mansion has quaint tourist rooms to large gorgeous romantic rooms. Something for everyone and a great breakfast to make your trip perfect. Massage therapists can come to your room for a relaxation session. Wireless printer and WiFi make it great for working while you enjoy tea in your room or on the verandah. The Innkeepers are born Rhode Islanders who can advise you to all the best restaurants that are off the beaten path. In the shoulder season, become a child again and play in Interactive Murder Mystery Weekends (all inclusive) where you are a character that gets wrapped up in a crazy, murderous plot as if you were in the movie Clue. Whatever the occasion, this Inn will sure be leaving an impression and warm memories to share with friends and family. ... more   less
