Where do we start - we start with a room mix-up and end up with true customer service! Our check-in with Mya was top-notch. She is friendly and great at her job. There was a room mix up but Kohl and David Smiley (who remember your names the whole stay) saw to it and it was fixed within 24 hrs!!! We had not been away since last year and we were not disappointed. The staff is friendly, hard-working and a joy to be around. The pool is fabulous and the grounds lovely. The firepits at night have just the right touch. We are already planning our trip for the Fall. Thank you!!!

We spent 3 days at Gurney’s in Newport and wow! What a disappointment. The entire hotel is tired and worm. Starting with the broken Revolving door at the entrance. (The boys at the valet and check in are friendly and helpful). We booked an Ocean view with Terrace (#416) The bathroom is worn and tired. The furniture in the room is very old. The cushions on the chairs on the terrace are torn and stained. Food and Beverage service. The pool bar was closed. The only restaurant opened served the same menu for lunch and dinner. The food was ok. The service was horrendous. The coffee bar in the lobby was closed (I was told there are staffing issues). The wait to get in for breakfast was over a half hour. My wife asked for a cup of coffee at lunch “sorry we have no coffee”. She went up to the room to get a cup. They are understaffed and keeping restaurants closed. The pictures on the website are wonderful but do not anywhere depict the actual facility. Everything is tired and worn. Our room was not cleaned by housekeeping till after 3pm when we had to call down and request our room cleaned. We attempted to book spa appointments but were told they book out Months in advance? Gurney’s is charging 4 or 5 star room rates and giving 2 star services. Stay away until they get this place in better shape and get their staffing up to par. There are better options in Newport for the Same price. Please note that the rate your are quoted including fees and taxes, DOES not include an additional $40 resort fee that is added on to your bill at the end. They did send a bottle of champagne and strawberries for our anniversary (was a nice touch) Thank you Unfortunately, In all we were extremely disappointed.

We had an incredible weekend here in late May. The service was amazing and the location to town and the availability of the shuttle was great. We parked and didn't have to drive all weekend. Loved it!
